RESERVE A PUP
Please begin by emailing us for our puppy reservation form/application
and submitting it to us. We only accept applications for a specific litter
that we have listed on our New Arrivals page. Once your application is
approved, you may submit a $100 non refundable fee to secure a
spot on our waiting list. This will be applied towards your deposit once
the pups arrive. (IE Total deposit $500-$100=$400)
At any time please do not hesitate
to call or email us with any questions!
We are always happy to answer any questions you
may have for us.
Please carefully read below concerning our process, and also read
the VISITS tab concerning our Visiting Policies.
By signing the reservation form, you are confirming that
you have read our terms and conditions on this page and agree.
We start waiting lists based off approved puppy applications. We may occasionally accept a few deposits per litter once a pregnancy is confirmed. Once the pups arrive, we will contact everyone on the waiting list via email (unless alternate contact info is noted) concerning placing your deposit. We feel this is the fairest way. We will not accept deposits any earlier.
Submitting an application does not reserve a puppy, only a received deposit.
We accept NON REFUNDABLE deposits on our puppies once they are born.
We will HOLD your reservation for three days to allow you to get your deposit to us. Please do not ask us to hold a pup for you if you have no intentions of sending a deposit. All our puppies come with limited AKC registration, unless arrangements have been made otherwise. Please inquire for pricing for full registration. If you do not discuss full registration (breeding) prior to placing a deposit, it will not be granted
We reserve the right to refund your deposit at anytime should we feel our puppy is not the best fit for your family. Also, at any time, should you become unable to care for your pup, please contact us first so we may assist you in placing your pup/dog in an approved home or you may return the dog to us, no questions asked.
When the pups arrive typically determines their going homes date, between 7-8 weeks of age. You will have an estimated going home date usually prior to placing your deposit to help you plan. If you cannot be available when your turn comes to select your pup, we will be happy to do this for you, but please let us know when placing your deposit, as we will not delay other families choosing. We allow 45 minutes for your visit, and assist with choosing, as we are with the pups all day every day and therefore have been able to observe any specific personalities or traits. In regards to physical appearance, our litters are very consistent. We do not allow visitors until it is time to begin the selection process. This helps us keep our puppies healthy.
Our pups go home at approx. 7-8 weeks old. If you are unable to bring your puppy home within that time frame please let us know prior to placing a deposit. Regardless of actual going home date, pup must be paid in full by 8 weeks of age.
If pup isn't picked up by the pickup date specified, a boarding fee of $20/night will be charged. All sales are final, and NO refunds will be issued for deposits or purchase price of pup. Please be sure you and your family are ready for a puppy, and that this is the right time in your life to devote to a pup.
Our adult dogs are health tested prior to entering our breeding program, per the Golden Retriever standard, hips, elbows, eyes and heart, thru OFA and PennHip. Each dog listed has a link to it's individual clearances. This helps eliminate issues stemming from these areas. As always, we stand behind any puppy we raise.
Our puppies are vet checked, micro chipped, and receive their first vaccination prior to going home. We also deworm them at 2, 4, and 6 weeks. Occasionally things do arise, that are beyond our control, but we do our very best to ensure you a healthy puppy. Click the button below for a copy of our health guarantee.
If you are local, we recommend the following vets: Miller Animal Hospital, Dr. Jack Miller, 704-847-0224, located in Matthews, NC or Faulkner's Animal Hospital, Dr. Brent Glenn, 803-286-8131, located in Lancaster, SC. They care for our adult Goldens.
Dr. Jeff Broadaway conducts our puppy vet checks onsite and does our microchipping.

Zelle sent 48 hours ahead of pickup, Cash or certified check only, payable to Paulette Helms or Carolina Country Goldens, for the balance, which is due at time of pickup.
Pickups are in person with my self and buyer.
We love having families visit from any state. Our pups reside in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Florida, Oregon, California, Indiana, Arizona, Colorado and New York.
If at any time you contact us and we do not have any available pups, we will be more than happy to refer you to a breeder who holds the same high standards as we do.
We feed Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Savor, Shredded Chicken or Beef and Rice, or Royal Canin to our Adults, and supplement the dry kibble with raw eggs, carrots, green beans, and apples. The puppies are started on Purina Pro Plan Focus Large Breed Puppy Chicken OR Royal Canin Golden Retriever Puppy. At a minimum, I recommend our new parents continue with the same food for the first six months after taking your puppy home

We supplement all our dogs with NuVet Plus. We recommend this for our puppies as well. You can order by calling 800-474-7044 and use Code/ID 76403 or visit
