Ellie Goldador


Darcy is simply a beauty. Maturing with full labrador traits and personality. She even responds to my two year old grandson's commands. So happy with her.

Shirelands Goldadors

Having over 40 years experience in raising labradors - yellow,black and chocolate, quite by chance in Ireland we mated one of our girls Millie to Buster, a gorgeous golden retriever. This stunning litter was born in Manchester when we left the Cavan countryside and returned to the UK.

Apart from the magnificent looks, we found this cross calms the exuberance of the labrador whilst keeping the lovely friendly temperament common to both breeds. We found their coats to be double with more fur than the labrador, longer or shorter depending on who the puppy follows most.There is still likely to be a fair bit of shedding.

We also have found that hybrids have a reputation of fewer health issues, and we tend to cross field trial with show type which also widens the genetic co-efficiency, making for a healthier dog.

We breed from KC registered Dams and Sires, but as the goldador is classed as a hybrid breed, similar to goldendoodles etc, they cannot as yet be KC registered. They are still however health tested according to the breed specifics of both dogs.

Goldadors are large dogs requiring a lot of exercise.Goldadors usually adore water and swimming, long walks in the countryside, games such as retrieving and flyball.
 They thrive in company and like all dogs should not be left alone for long periods of time.We do not sell to households where there is not someone around for most of the day. When young, puppies can be destructive in terms of chewing for example.

Goldadors are particularly good with children and other pets. They are extremely intelligent and easy to train, which makes them excellent service, search and rescue, guide and therapy dogs.

The name Goldador is relatively new as this type of dog was typically called "golden labrador." Labradors that happen to be "golden" in colour are most accurately termed yellow labradors and this covers cream, gold and red. I have seen goldadors called "glabs!"
