Puppy availability

Update July 2024 


WE are very excited to announce that Ember is pregnant with her third litter anticipated in early August.  If you would like be be on our waiting list should a vacancy become available, please contact us.

We are taking early expression of interests for our 2025 litter -planned for between May-August 2025. Please contact us if you are interested.


Puppy selection is untaken at 6 weeks of age and puppies are old enough to go home to their forever homes from 8 weeks. 

Please read below for further information on how to register your interest.













How to advance register your interest for our 2025 litter. 

You are welcome to make an initial Expression of Interest (EOI) in advance but this does not guarantee you a puppy.  Only families who keep in touch following their initial EOI  (via email) up until when a litter is due are formally considered.  Often families change their minds in the months since initially contacting us, or source a puppy/dog from another source and subsequently don't let us know.  

We find the right family are happy to wait for a quality puppy from a registered breeder.  The right family will want to keep in touch and be patient and wait for a puppy to become available.

Average waiting time for a puppy

Most families wait a minimum of 6-12 months for their puppy.  Good breeders will have long waiting lists - this is a good sign and you will need to be patient.

Booking or holding fees before puppies are born

Murraygold does not require any booking or holding fees to express your interest in a puppy.  We only require a deposit once puppies have been born and you have formally been offered a puppy from a given litter. Under most reasonable circumstances, deposits are refundable if you change your mind.


Contacting us to express your interest in a puppy


Every litter at Murraygold is carefully planned. We do not breed often and puppies are only available by reservation, to caring and responsible homes. Previous owners of Murraygold dogs will often be given first preference.

If you are a new family wishing to express your interest in a future planned litter, you are more than welcome to contact us via our contact page


We ask that new inquiries to us don't simply email us in an unpersonalised email (along with other registered breeders), asking us if we have any puppies available and their cost. Please personalise your request. We recommend you spend some time to provide us with some very helpful information, such as:

  • information about yourself & your family

  • why you are seeking a golden retriever from Murraygold

  • what kind of home you could offer

  • other pets you may have

  • any other information you think might be good to know

Imagine if you were selling a treasured pup to a prospective family...what sort of home would you like your puppy to go to?  We have hundreds of enquiries and seek the BEST homes for our puppies.  We won't know unless you tell us!!


We make every effort to respond to all genuine emails sent to us.
