River x Vega 


Thank you to all of our new Rivereed families who have made the commitment to a puppy from this litter.
We are very excited to see what the future holds for these babies.
Good luck in all your goals and adventures!



Vega is a very intelligent and athletic dog with major work ethic and a will to please. He has a beautiful pedigree full of champions and high titled dogs in both performance and field work dating back more than five generations.
Vega has had a very successful working career himself, including the accomplishments of being a five time Obedience Trial Champion, two time Master Agility Champion, Preferred Agility Champion, Rally Champion and a Hunting Retriever Champion. He has earned the titles of Master Hunter, Utility Dog Excellent X8, Obedience Grand Master, Rally Master, Master Silver Agility, Master Silver Jumper with Weaves, Sent Work Container Novice, Trick Dog Performer, Therapy Dog Title, and the Conformation Assessment Certificate awarded by the Golden Retriever Club of America. 
With all of his success, Vega has also earned his way into The Obedience Dog Hall of Fame, The Agility Dog Hall of Fame and The Preferred Agility Dog Hall of Fame. 

Vega is owned, trained, and handled by Joanne Bockhorn.
She has done a wonderful job with him and we are very excited to work with them both. 
Joanne speaks very highly of Vega, not only for his awards and accomplishments, but for his kind and sweet personality. 
Vega is an all around dog, who can go on any trip or meet any person and always keep a level head and a high level of confidence.
We believe all of these attributes will pair beautifully with River for an outstanding litter.
Vega meets the GRCA code of ethics requirements, being current on all of his OFA clearances. His DNA panel is clear.

They say good things come in small packages. 
River is a beautiful girl standing only 22" from the ground to her withers and averaging about 55 pounds. But don't let size fool you, this girl is a power house, a retrieving machine, compacted into a petite little frame. 
 She has a gorgeous, glossy, eye catching coat with flecks of medium and dark gold.
"Drive" should have been her middle name as she works extremely hard from start to finish without ever loosing that drive we all love on the field. Her high level of energy and confidence makes her fun to train and hunt with. Even as a pup, River has never been the dog to give up or hang her head low. She is very intelligent and trainable, never having an issue learning something new. She is a "go get em" kind of girl with a "give it all you got" kind of attitude making her a strong competitive athlete. 
River has a lovely pedigree starting with her sire "FC Thistle Rocks Red Ike MH QA2 WCX" and her Dam "HR Shurshot Max-Q Femme Nikita MH WCX ** OD". Both of these lines are stacked with Master Hunter titles, Field Champions and Amateur Field Champions.

With all of these things mentioned about her high level of energy, River is also a faithful companion. She has a beautiful off switch that makes having her as a house dog a breeze. Although house manners and rules needed to be established and reiterated, she caught on fast and proves herself a loyal and enjoyable part of our family. She has a fun, bouncy Tigger-like personality that never fails to put a smile on your face. She is an outstanding mother and loves to lead the younger members of our pack. She is no stranger to camping, family outings or to our bed.
River ran in the Junior Hunt Test stake this summer and she successfully qualified in all three runs making her 3 and 0! She currently needs one more pass to title.
River will be continuing towards a Senior title.
