Welcome to Lagniappe Goldens!
After owning Goldens for over 50 years, Nancy and Darryl Burke decided to share that love with others. Thus, we established Lagniappe Goldens. In the French language, lagniappe (pronounced lang yap) means "a little something extra." We believe that, when you receive one of our puppies, you will also be receiving that "little something extra" of love and special attention we give to each of our Golden Retrievers. Our dogs are so loved and cared for and, more than anything, we want the offspring of our English Cream Golden Retrievers to grow up in a loving new home.
Lagniappe Goldens is a labor of love, and we have cherished -- and continue to cherish -- every minute spending time with our Goldens. We are members in the American Kennel Club and the Golden Retriever Club of America, and believe in responsible breeding of Golden Retrievers.
We also enjoy watching our Goldens grow up in their new homes, and we have become friends with our new owners. We routinely still share photos, news about our dogs, and helpful Golden Retriever information between our families.
All your puppy desires will be met when you meet our precious dogs:
