“We purchased Abby from you ten years ago and we could not ask for a more amazing dog! Abby is and always will be a part of our family. And even at ten years old, she remains very active and she never lost her puppy spirit. Abby is the best dog we could ever ask for and we are so pleased with your breeding services we already put down a deposit for another puppy! Thank you for giving us such an amazing dog!”

“Can’t believe she will be 4 this year. She is the best dog! In fact, do you have pups right now? My son may be looking for one for his girlfriend. She is a great dog and we just can’t stand how cute she is. She is full of personality and a ball of fun. She is pretty obedient… doesn’t like the word come. She always gets a ton of attention from people… Thank you!!! We love her to pieces!”

3. Liberty Run
It is our breeding objective to produce intelligent, calm, and healthy Golden Retrievers – ones that are easy for you to train, great to have as companions, and healthy. This is how the breed is supposed to be! To accomplish this, we breed only healthy and obedient adult Golden Retrievers, like Vana above, who earn obedience titles, not beauty pageant or hunting titles. Our moms and dads have their OFA, CERF, and SAS clearances. Original documents are here for you to view, and we provide copies of these to you when you purchase a puppy from Liberty Run.
“I wanted to let you know that Peyton (parents are Harley and Dixie) is doing wonderfully. She is such a joy to have in our household. She has become the hit at the vet, too. She is very intelligent and learns easily. Of course, we have had the normal puppy problems, but in the end she is worth it. She weights almost 25 pounds at 14 weeks of age. I am so pleased with her temperament and disposition. I also believe that she is the most beautiful golden I have ever seen. As you see, I am a very proud mommie…Thank you so much for providing me with such a wonderful puppy.”
“Bear [parents are Harley and Vana] is fabulous! Everyone loves him. He is sweet, good, intelligent and calm. He’s doing quite well with his training, and now does an impressive sit, paw, down and stay. Of course, he’s especially good when there’s a milkbone involved. We’d love to see you again, so we’ll call and see what works for you. Our best to Ruth.”
4. Maryland Golden Retriever Puppies
Our puppies are whelped and raised in our home for the first three weeks where they are well socialized by us, the grand kids and family friends. They are then moved outside into climate controlled areas where they can play, explore, grow and become accustomed to outside potty training. (They are not conditioned to do their business in the home.) This is well appreciated by our customers when they take a puppy home and don’t have to break their puppy of bad habits.
“Cowboy is the most amazing puppy (and boy does he know it!!!) He is such a stud and everywhere we go people recognize how special he is. He is a great indoor dog, but he is even better outside. Cowboy loves to go hiking and swimming. Our whole family has fallen in love with him. We always knew Goldens were wonderful companions, but your breed of retrievers has confirmed our love for them.”
—Katy and Nick, Abingdon, MD 21009
“Zoe and Lola turn 1 year old on Aug 8. They are everything I expected. I am very happy that we found you and the pups. Everyone in the neighborhood knows and loves them. They are a bundle of joy. I am glad I got two of them at the same time. Here are some pics of them, they are beautiful and sweet. Thanks for the great pups.”
—Jesse, Arlington, Va.
