Tessa is the reason for my passion of the Golden Retriever. I purchased her hoping that she would turn out to be good enough to be able to show in conformation.  Three shows later, Tessa had earned her Champion title, handle by me of course! Let me tell you i had so much to learn about the sport!!! 




Tessa possesses qualities of a true golden. She is short backed, has a wonderful front assembly with lots of fore chest. She is short in loin, has a soft expression with a beautiful head piece. She moves with style and carries ample coat. Her strong drive for retrieving makes her an excellent bird dog. Her temperament is laid back, adapting to any environment. Tessa stands @ 21 1/2 inches tall and weighs 63 pounds.
