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.

Her parents are life long friends of Steve & I. They set us up on our first date, & the rest is history. Our children have since grown together over the years and Olivia is counted as blood within this family. We know you all will feel the same when you speak with her.

She has always had a passion for animals as a child specifically, Dogs. Olivia is the missing link that our family has been waiting for in order to continue the successful program we have built and sustain it while we enter a new season of our life in 2022.

We hope to travel a little more and create some large “Puppy Reunions” in the near future. Our hearts have not only been tied to our immediate family (7 grandchildren more to come) but with much love and support we have supported 29 Indian orphans in Hyderabad, India that we wish to continue visiting when our life style will allow it.

Olivia is well versed in what it takes to keep our program running efficiently. She is in the middle of pursuing her Dog trainer certification through “Catch Trainers Academy”.  She has proven time and time again with her on going assistance in placing puppies in their new homes, that we are making the right move as she continues doing a great job while I take a slight step back in this deportment of my life.

“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!
