Family Owned

Family owned and operated since 2005 with the help of our 11 children.  Our owners become an extended member of our family.  And our family is growing with each and every annual Puppy Reunions which we have just begin this year.

Trusted by Many

We continue to be transparent about the program we run here and the success we have experienced along the way. This is due to the trust and support we receive from our countless puppy parents.

Education and Information

We provide an extensive amount of information about the breed, care, do's and don'ts, internet scamming, puppy mills and recommendations for food and nutrition.


We have been raising healthy, high quality puppies from genetically health tested parents since 2005 – this has given us close to two decades on learning what genetics, products, facilities, training, and everything it takes to create a “Rising Star” puppy.

Throughout this journey our eleven children have been a huge part in making this all possible. They manage the tedious chores and husbandry skills that have brought us the extreme success we have experienced for so many years. Many of them have grown into their skills and talents along the way, becoming professional dog groomers, puppy photographers, puppy midwives, flight nannies and the list goes on.


Our children our now having their own children which has made us no longer mom and dad but a Mimi & a PaPa! Not only has our family grown in size, but our Rising Star family has grown enormously! As we plan for our “retirement” years we find it difficult to properly handle the tremendous increase in the amount of questions, phone calls, required website updates and so on.

Last year we started a YouTube channel where new puppy buyers can learn and prepare for how our adoption process is done. We have had new puppy buyers really appreciate the information found on these short tutorials which has eased their mind when trying to find trustworthy, reputable breeders and avoid puppy scammers or puppy mills.

“Dixie is now 21 months old, and is the head of our household! She is so smart, loves everyone and everyone loves her. We love having a “red head” in the family, and her green eyes really set her apart. She is in training to become a Therapy Dog, and we are excited about her future. Thank you Carrie Sawyer, for producing such precious puppies.”

Hi Carrie, This is David and Christy Youngman and Gus. We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful puppy who has quickly become everyone's best friend in our home. Can't imagine our home without him! Thank you so very much!

Happy Customer

Molly is the perfect Golden Doodle for our family! She is very lovable and playful. Our experience purchasing her from Rising Star Golden Doodles was not difficult whatsoever. We had Molly shipped to us in Charlotte, NC and when we got her, she was so calm and loving. Carrie gave precise directions on how to go about the shipping process and there was not much to it. Thank you for our precious Golden Doodle!
