You'll find one of these with your nearest BYB. Don't!! Mix breeding like this is a no-no. Why? Because there is no regulation, no Breed Standard, no testing, just producing puppies with one aim in mind - making MONEY. Logic will tell you that using pet stock, which BYBs will be using, will only produce more pet stock, with all the faults both breeds have. These pets were most likely sold without the intention that they would ever be bred from because they had a fault or two that made their breeder reject them from their final selection. Ie. Not the best of the litter.
You would do far better to locate a reputable breeder of either the Golden Retriever, or the Yellow Labrador (there is no such animal as a Golden Labrador - they come in 3 colours, Yellow, Black or Chocolate). Contact the relevant Breed Club and ask for the names of known good breeders.
Unless you adopt from a Shelter, please don't contribute to the income of the BYB.
Add - Please don't shun ALL breeders out of hand as has been suggested here. All puppies deserve good homes, and provided you buy from somebody who is doing it right, there's absolutely nothing wrong in buying a well-bred sound puppy, if you want a specific look or a dog for a specific purpose.
