Welcome to Ahwaga Goldens & Pugs!
"Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a Golden Retriever, one's life and one's outlook is never quite the same." ~Betty White.
Ahwaga Goldens and Pugs is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Newton, North Carolina, just 40 minutes northwest of Charlotte, North Carolina.
We have owned Golden Retrievers for 20 years. We bought our first show dog in 1995, and she quickly became more of our lap dog than a show dog. Her grandson was our first champion, Ch. Ahwaga's Bow Priest. All of our dogs are pets first. Goofing around, playing ball, and exploring the farm are top priorities. Our new addiction has been in the agility ring. It has been more of a learning experience for us than the dogs.
The Golden Retriever is a wonderful breed with a sweet disposition. You can look in their eyes and know that all they want out of life is to make us happy. We do have litters on occasion, breeding first and foremost for health and temperament.
Many people like to paint as a hobby, we like to do the dog thing. To me they are an outlet and they love me back, painting can't do that.
