Operation "Farm Dog"



Now taking applications for the next Operation Farm Dog Puppy!

Every farm needs a Great Farm Dog! At Red Hive we want to provide as many of our Veteran Farmers as possible with exceptional Golden Retrievers.  Puppies whose love and devotion to them, and their families, will reflect the love and devotion with which they have served our country.

Operation Farm Dog is a joint mission between the Farmer Veterans Coalition (FVC) and Red Hive Golden Retrievers.  Our objective is to provide selected veteran members of the FVC with an exceptional companion to perform important support functions on the farm.  The roles of a great farm dog are as diverse as the farming operations and families to which they belong. Among other things, in the line of duty these loyal companions may be called upon to: guard livestock, ride in the pick-up truck, lick a sweaty face or hand, love unconditionally, bark at (or chase away) unwanted intruders, share an ice cream cone, or entertain children of all ages. A puppy who has known nothing but love and care is a perfect “buddy” for those who have served in the military through difficult situations; for those who still serve by working to provide food security for our nation.

We’re piloting this program with the Michigan chapter of the FVC and would love to see it grow nationally to 100 puppies placed with 100 Veteran Farmer Families each year.  RedHive Farm LLC is a small operation, and we can’t do this on our own, so we will be calling on AKC registered Sporting and Working Class Dog Breeders around the country to help by donating as many exceptional puppies as they can to this remarkable cause.

These are great puppies; the best the breeds have to offer. AKC registered with fantastic genetics, health checked, and backed by responsible breeders who are grateful for the service and sacrifice made by our Veterans and their families.

One Red Hive Puppy from each litter will be selected to join the family of one of our Farmer Veterans.
