Shimmer was the last puppy born, a beautiful little girl with soulful eyes and a
good brain. You can see her thinking things out and figuring out how to get what she wants!
Shimmer went home with our friends the SanFilippos of New York, who also own her great aunt Sedona, a full younger sister of Panda's mother Penny.
In the past, the SanFilippos also owned our Hilfy's full littermate Summer and a half-brother, Sundance, so we are definitely 'family'! Shimmer enjoys
her aunt and also loves the retriever training and swimming she gets to do. Another dock diver, she particularly enjoys the weekends when they all
go visit the Koguts and she gets to play with her brother Jake! She made her performance debut at the October 2015 Golden Retriever National
Specialty in Ohio, where she won third place in a sizeable field of Golden puppies. She was the youngest puppy to place! During the spring and summer
of 2016, she earned her Junior Hunter title and is now learning the handling and other stuff needed for the higher levels.
