Retired Breeding Dogs


Usually 5 years old or younger, we occasionally have some young dogs that are 2 years or less, that we have released from our breeding program.  Most of the dogs listed will be retiring as they have produced successful litters, completed their contracts or have had heirs so they are more than ready to be spayed/neutered and become an official member of someone’s family. Sometimes we have younger dogs that we saved as possible breeders due to their stellar genetic testing as puppies but once they  get their adult health screenings not all pass our desired criteria and therefore are placed up for adoption as retired breeding dogs.

All of these dogs have been well socialized with other dogs and have been introduced to people throughout their time with us.  

 A retired breeding dog home typically will live within a 2 hour drive of Lexington, KY  — However, each of our retiring dogs are individually assessed so their allotted distance from facility may vary. Prices of the retiring dogs are based on the individual canines as a result of their age and other qualities.

Placing our dogs and puppies in the right home is of the utmost importance to us. We want to ensure that our dogs find the best fit possible for the forever home, especially our retiring dogs as they’ve aged with us. Although a dog may have the look your family is looking for, GoldenQuest wants to be sure that we find the perfect personality for your home as well as find the best possible home for our dogs. Some of our canines are spirited, outgoing and spunky while others are mellow, relaxed and subdued; it is our belief that personality should be the main factor when selecting a new family member. If you are unsure of what it is your family is looking for please speak with us on your daily happenings and we can help guide you toward a good match. 

If you have questions about our available retired dogs, email us at or call (859) 879-DOGS. 



 At this time we do not have any retired Breeding Dogs available.
