PAST PUPPY FAMILY TESTIMONIALS
Written by Tracy Calhoun, Sutter Bay Retrievers
I just want to commend Jamie and her family for this litter. It is rare for us to get a puppy from outside lines, so it was important to find a breeder I was comfortable with, raised puppies like we do, and who would work with me. I share this with everyone (it’s a “don’t try this at home” video 😂) to give you an idea of the rather chaotic environment Rue will be raised in. Temperament is huge, as we ask a lot of the dogs here. What has been phenomenal over the past six days is watching how Rue is able to temper her responses to the situation, amazing for a young puppy. The puppies here are 4 weeks younger, and while she has been able to interact for a minute or two (closely supervised to make sure her arousal level stays low) she is mouthing them quite gently, given her alligator teeth. This is a situation you wouldn’t want to do unless you knew exactly how to handle it, as a puppy of such a different size could accidentally hurt a smaller one. Then, she ramps up her play level with the big dogs, and then will hang out respectfully with our 16 and 4 month old girl. Hubby calls her an “old soul”. It is phenomenal and I now am glad I had Danno on one of my test breedings. Rue will be doing some puppy visits for the next 3 months under my therapy dog Puppy Partner credential, including going to the Hospice House on one of my days off.
Thanks again Jamie! (Video omitted, Comments used by permission, FB post)

Jamie matched us with one of her pups last year. He is wonderful! The idea of not picking my own pup was new to me, but it works! Who knows the pups better than the breeder who spends everyday working with them? We are looking forward to being matched with another one of her pups in the near future. She is a very dedicated breeder!

Jack x Maggie Litter:Carla Hack, you chose Jasper for me and he is a perfect fit! I would love to see his full potential knowing who his parents are, but I don’t have the time or the money to go that route! He has turned into such a wonderful, loving companion, I wouldn’t trade him for anything! You chose him because you knew in your heart that we needed each other and I love you and thank you every day!
Our puppy from Grapevine Goldens is the real deal. Jamie did such a great job from start to finish. We knew that our little girl, Mazie, was taken care of the moment she was born. Jamie was also wonderful to work with. While excitement teemed at home in anticipation for Mazie to come home, Jamie posted plenty of videos and pictures to keep us posted. Jamie was also full of advice and knowledge, evidenced by the wonderful packet of information every puppy parent got at pick up. Even my veterinarian was commenting on how beautiful and smart Mazie was. I would HIGHLY recommend Grapevine Goldens for your next family pup!

We are at the point in our lives that we know this will probably be our last dog ( well, at least the last BIG dog!), and having had 2 other Goldens, our expectations were set pretty high. Grapevine Goldens and Jamie and her family surpassed all of those expectations. From the first contact Jamie was open to answering all our questions and continued to be available to us throughout our “waiting time” whether it was on FB, messaging, texting or her pictures and updates on the webpage. Her care, love, and interest in matching the pups with their forever families is wonderful. She had 3 out of 6 males to recommend for us, and although it was SO hard to choose, we do feel that our boy, Higgins, is the perfect dog for us. The socialization, care and love showered on these puppies while in Jamie’s care is first class, and the results of that care shows from the minute you bring them into your home. They are loving, smart, easy to train, healthy, gorgeous dogs. And, we know we have a knowledgeable, caring friend in Jamie we can turn to at any time with any question in the future!! We will be forever grateful to Grapevine Goldens for all they do for their pups and their puppy families.

We adore Rick and Jamie. This is our 2nd Golden baby from Grapevine Goldens! I can’t say enough about this wonderful family. Jamie give us daily updates, photos and videos on the puppies progress. I would recommend anyone wanting a Golden puppy to visit with this family. We have became great friends with this family over the last year! Thanks you Jamie for all your time, effort and hard work that you put into making the puppies wonderful family pets
There are so many amazing things I could say about Grapevine Golden’s – it would just take too long!
In short, Jamie is absolutely wonderful. I’m so thankful I found such a loving and caring breeder to buy from. From the moment I applied to the time I picked up Hugo, Jamie made me feel at home. She answered every question, provided great advice and ultimately led me to my best friend!
Thank you for everything!

When we decided to add another Golden to our family, my wife and I said rather than look for a great dog we will look for a great breeder. We had looked at several when we saw Grapevine’s website. After going to our interview and meeting Jamie we knew we had the right person. Her and her family are awesome and there is a lot of love for their dogs.
Jamie has put the time and effort into learning about Golden’s and can answer pretty much any question you could possibly have about the breed and makes herself available to do so.
One thing my family really enjoyed was her constant updates on Facebook from the minute the pups were born all through their first weeks. We really felt like we were a part of what was going on and looking at puppy pics when we got home in the afternoons was the highlight of our day for eight weeks.
Grapevine Goldens truly loves their pups and it shows, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of breeder and we couldn’t be happier with our beloved Maximus.
Kudos to Grapevine Goldens for a great job of raising 22 happy, health, and well adjusted puppies. Jamie provided daily updates (Photos & Text) per the pups progress and development on Facebook – I tuned in daily. We absolutely knew these pups were receiving the best nurturing care. My wife and I can’t say enough about how happy we are with our new puppy. I suggest you thoroughly checkout the Grapevine website and contact Jamie if you’re heart is set on a Golden Retriever from a truly loving breeder.

I cannot thank Jamie enough for all she has done throughout the whole process. She helped me choose two pups that are absolutely perfect with one another. She took EXCELLENT care of Wallace and Bella. She had tons of material to help with raising the pups. Basically, she did everything to a higher standard than I could have ever hoped.
I couldn’t be happier with Wallace and Bella. They play together all day and sleep together at night. They really want to please you, are learning so fast, and have an endless reservoir of love to share!
I would recommend Grapevine Goldens to anyone looking for the perfect dog(s). Thank you Jamie!
How someone can take such care for 22 puppies at one time,should be in the record books. My little Cassie was healthy and well taken care of. Jamie helped all the puppies have a very good start in their new life. The whole family is caring and takes care of your needs. Thank you all!!
Jamie helped me select a puppy that fit my lifestyle and she paired us wonderfully. Always available for questions before, during and after bringing my puppy home.
