It has come to our attention that the Long Island Golden Retriever (Official) Facebook Group is not official at all. Its a scam, misrepresented by two youngsters who don't own a golden retriever or live on Long island. After much investigation, they use your personal information to their leisure and have people with a Maryland connect making posts to lure people into giving their personal information, especially people from my program. I have been contacted numerously about issues and incidents within this group. Please join the regular listed Facebook group. This Fake group states that it's a private group and it clearly is not private at all and a danger. I have attempted to reach the owners/admins of the group and they continue to avoid responses or accountability. If you are a part of this group , you may want to relocated to a real long island golden retriever group.
Also, We are not affiliated with Family Raised Goldens in other states. Not even sure if they are real or not. However, we have been mistaken for them before.
With fair warning, do not respond to people claiming to have gotten a puppy from us on social media with the specific dates that match your puppy. It has come to our attention that this is being done in order lore our customers into traps to give out personal information in DMs and give out more information about you and your personal information. This mostly happens in facebook groups. Avoid at all costs. These are scammers (and people with ill intentions) attempting to get information. Please join our private vetted group, upon request for people who only got a puppy from us and where it is safe to share your personal experiences, photos and birthday information. Due to the large number of scammers and hate speech of breeders on Facebook and other forms on social media, we are not a part of any special group except our own. Contact us for the special invitation request, for walks, photos and sibling updates. Please do not create a group for me or with our name on it, or post on groups without our knowledge. It can create legal ramifications for the creator of this group and our program aswell. We have seen this happen to fellow breeders before and we on occasion get a large volume of hate mail as a result. Thank you for your cooperation. Yes, we on occasion get called all kinds of things from random strangers online. Please note, all our referrals are available on google from our actual customers for your personal assistance in decision making. We don't participate, correct or engage in replying to ignorant statements made about us online. Kindness is free.
To keep peace with our neighbors, we ask respectfully ask that all park in front of our location at 24 robin drive or our private driveway, if it's accessible. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. Please note we are a private residence and our pups are family raised. We are not considered a puppy store of any kind. All visits are by appointment only.
Our interview process starts the moment you call. Any person that does not show up or call to reschedule an appointment prior to their appointment time, will not be allowed to reschedule. This manner of behavior states a great deal about a person's ability to take serious responsibility for an animal and most especially our time slot. We find that many people who don't show up during their appointment later regret that decision. Eventually calling months or years later. These calls are not answered or requests will not be entertained.
If at any point during our correspondence/interview process we determine that the interviewee is not fit in any way, (financially, emotionally or responsible enough to care for the animal) we will respectfully refuse the adoption of our puppies. We deeply care about our puppies and prefer to make sure they go to good responsible owners and stable homes.
We expect a level of care and respect from those who engage with our program. We are more than happy to assist anyone who calls with any issues or problems that may arise whether its with one of our puppies or a fellow dog owner asking for help. We know that raising a puppy is not easy at all. However, sometimes, that difficulty has given people the assumption that they can throw all their frustrations at our direction. It is easy to find blame in others, instead of ourselves and our choices. During the pandemic, we noticed that people have become easily tempered and hostile in the matter they approach problem solving. This solves nothing.
From time to time, we get disrespectful statements, aggressive demands and insults of all kinds from customers or inquirers who feel they can throw their frustrations of raising a puppy at our direction. We don't mind having a peaceful dialogue and assisting with resolving anyone's present issue on how to better care for their puppy. However, we are not here to be anyone's punching bag. If we receive anything that is perceived out of line comments, be prepared for an immediate call or response. There are better ways to solve one's problems.
Please note that we only do on-site transactions. No online purchases. It has come to our attention that a scammer by the name of Edwienna Grier who actually lives in GA has been scamming people online to put fake deposits on puppies to be picked up at our location. Please note, that we only operate with the listed phone number on our website. If you receive any other number, it is not us. Due to the rise of these types of scams online we only do on-site pick up, reserves and transactions. We do not have a facebook, instagram or websites that have dogs for under $1500 or websites without an actual address location. Be ware of websites with no address to verify their validity. Please contact your police immediately and do not send zelle or venmo to anyone for a puppy you have not physically seen in person from online. This particular scammer has a website and google listing in NJ but services everywhere from CA to PA. The reviews are many but none of the 5 star reviews are verifiable.

Please be aware of your local laws. What may be allowed in Suffolk County, NY may not be in NYC and the tri-state area. Puppies acquired in NYC are required to be Spayed and Neutered upon purchase. However, that is not required in Suffolk County. Please note, that anyone coming from those areas must be willing and able to pay for their own spay/neuter procedures if they are obtaining a puppy or dog outside of the tri-state area. It is not the responsibility of the breeders, regardless if the testicles have descended or if they are retained. Check your local law requirements before crossing county lines for a puppy acquisition.
Out of precaution, we provide additional dewormers to the new pet owner to ensure they are free and clear of parasites. Please note, all puppies are born with parasites or obtain it during nursing automatically. It is inevitable. To ensure you have a happy and health puppy, we continue this deworming process even after they have left our premises. It is important to note, that if your puppy does come positive with something. Don't Panic! Things happen, we will work with you and walk you through the process. It can be easily fixed with dewormers within a few days and we provide the dewormers on an as needed basis. We encourage all to follow up with us in the event their puppy shows any sign of abnormality immediately so we can rectify the situation, this includes diarrhea, pop belly, weight loss, or change in behavior. Our top priority is the puppy's health and a smooth transition. Please note that a puppy can also catch parasites and diseases from your surfaces as well. Which is why it is so important to maintain and open channel of communication with us through these processes. Disinfect all toys, bedding and floors so the condition not continue with your pet.
08/2021- Due to recent events, we are implementing new processes and procedures to ensure our animals are going to a secure, stable and safe new home environment. All who reserve or are interested in one of our pups will have to fill out an application, along with sign an agreement in which states that they ”the buyer“ agree to adequately provide truthful information and capable of adequately care for the animal for the foreseeable future. Within this agreement, the buyer must agree to return all pups, if they can no longer care for the animal within its first year. This will be at the cost of the buyer and placed upon our adoption program for a new home screening. All pups from FMP LLC are not approved for resale. We heavily discount our pups and some have taken upon themselves to try to make a profit at reselling our pups for significantly more. This goes against what our program is about and our policies. All buyers must agree to our terms and conditions in writing if they would like to acquire one of our pups. Please note, these conditions were put in place to protect the puppy (which is our top priority) and to deter those who are not serious about this responsibility. Also, must be 21 years or older and the main owner of the residence upon which the puppy resides. If you are not the main owner of the said residence, a written consent form must be provided by the property owner consenting to the acquisition of the puppy. Any falsified or misleading information provided upon the application process or breach in these contractual agreements will result in forfeiture of the puppy and a forfeiture of a refund.
