Hello, my name is Penny Stephens, and I am the very proud owner of 10 beautiful Golden Retrievers.
Welcome to the home of my precious Keweras Golden Retrievers. I hope you will enjoy your visit, and come back regularly to see updates on how all the dogs are doing, and check on the availability of puppies etc. I value your comments and will reply to each and every one I receive.
Golden Retrievers are the most wonderful of all creatures, offering kindness, love, loyalty and companionship unconditionally, as only they can. Their sensitivity to their owners’ feelings is positively amazing, as my dogs have proved on many occasions. I quite simply couldn’t live my life without them. I have many chronic health conditions, and my beloved dogs get me through each and every day with understanding and compassion. Without being able to speak a single word they know when I am suffering badly, and how to comfort me.
Because of their wonderful dispositions, Golden Retrievers are ideally suited to families with children, and the disabled, and make wonderful therapy dogs in Nursing and Residential Homes. I’m very proud to say that a second puppy has now gone to Coombe House Residential home, and is adored by all the residents, as was her predecessor. Many of my dogs are registered P.A.T. (Pets as Therapy) dogs, which also pleases me greatly, and several have gone to homes with autistic children where they are turning the lives of these children around. Every breed of dog, however, requires the correct training from the time they arrive in your home at approximately 8 weeks old, and all this advice and support is available to you from the time you first make contact with me, and is ongoing throughout your dog’s life. I am very excited about having this opportunity to show off my most wonderful of friends to the world via my website! I currently have five females who are involved in my breeding programme (Talia, Matti, Mabel, Martha & Maisie). I also have two stud dogs who are a soppy loving boys (Torr & Ty) as are all my ‘girls’. I have an amazing new puppy called Mekita who is Maisie’s daughter, and I have a lovely senior here with me who is a pure delight at nearly 15 (Tekka). I also have a darling girl who has given me two wonderful litters but has now been spayed due to complications with starting her contractions (Tehya).
To date I have delivered close to 400 Golden Retriever puppies – mostly my own, but several for Goldie owners who have been rather nervous of the impending event, and have asked me to step into the role of midwife for them! These days, however this is no longer possible as getting onto the floor is a major event and requires assistance from my husband, so I only deliver our own puppies, but I am always happy to offer support and advice to anyone, including talking you through a whelping over the phone if necessary – this I have done successfully many times before. I hope always to do whatever is necessary to help the breed in any way I am physically and cognitively able to within my illnesses. I have delivered many other breeds for people in the past in order to ensure, as far as possible, that the pups are delivered safely, and that mum is also safe and well throughout. I’m very proud to say my dogs are blood donors for Albert Cottage Veterinary Practice here in Saltash, and have already helped in saving the lives of many other much loved dogs
