Our Dogs

Holistically Raised/Naturally Reared Puppies

We began our love of the Great Pyrenees breed almost 20 years ago when we bought a pair to guard our milk goats.  They are amazing livestock protection dogs, also known as the “Gentle Giant”.  We love their personalities and their fierce protection of us and our animals. We began breeding Golden Pyrenees about four years ago.  These dogs have amazing personalities and combine the best  traits of both of their parent breeds.  In 2024 we introduced the Golden Mountain Dog and Great Bernese crosses.

Our Puppy Mission

Our mission in raising our puppies is to help people realize that what they feed their pets makes a difference in their long term health.  So does the vaccines they give and the chemicals the dogs are exposed to.  Amy is a functional nutritionist, master herbalist and holistic health practitioner and has found that the same chronic illnesses and behavior/emotional/stress issues plaguing humans are also affecting family pets.  We need to rethink not only how we eat and live but also how we are raising our animals.  Part of this for us is we feed our dogs a fresh food diet -organic veggies, grains and raw meat, bones and organs.  We do not give vaccinations because of the risk of vaccinosis.   We use homeopathic and herbal wormers and homeopathic nosodes to keep our dogs and puppies healthy.  We want the puppy you buy from us to live a long and healthy life and hope you will think about making these changes as well.

Our Dogs

All of our dogs and puppies are raised holistically and are exposed to pigs, sheep, horses, cats and kids!  We begin taking deposits at 4 weeks old and we ask for a $250 deposit to hold a puppy and base puppy picking on the order in which we receive deposits. Deposits are not refundable unless the puppy is found to be unhealthy at its 7 week check up.

We do not ship puppies but we do have families that travel to pick up puppies quite frequently. 

Thank you for your interest in our puppies.  If we can answer any questions, please email autumncreekranch@mailfence.com.


After losing our sweet Millie Big-Butt, we decided to get a puppy. I couldn’t be happier with our choice. Teddy has received two-thumbs up by our vet in terms of his health and demeanor. While the trainer calls him, “the laziest puppy he’s ever worked with” we love how mellow our little guy is. He is just a happy, go-lucky boy, and I credit that to the breeder’s dedication to handling and caring for their dogs and puppies.

We are over the moon happy with Nova.  Already sits on command and fetches most of the time.  She is a beautiful puppy with a great temperament.  She has caught on to potty training quickly too.

Thank you soooo very much.

We were looking for a golden Pyrenees because of the temperament and our past experiences with Great Pyrenees as a guardian dog. From the moment the family handed her to us in a very simple exchange, she has been a very sweet, very healthy, exuberant pup. We drove from California to get her and everyone can’t stop talking about what a good looking dog she is! We are so happy she is part of our family and can’t wait to see how big she actually gets. Thank you for raising her on a farm (we are farmers) and exposing her to all the good that comes from that type of life. We would highly recommend autumn creek ranch to anyone looking for a healthy, happy, ready for the world, pup! Thanks again!

Bella is the sweetest little gal. We had a lengthy car ride home from picking her up and she settled right in for the ride. She didn’t whimper one time and laid snuggled up next to my daughter. She is smart as a whip and learning fast. We are enjoying every minute with her and love her very much!


We’ve had Ham for just over a week and are loving his intelligence, cuteness, and playful puppy energy. We wanted a dog that can be our adventure buddy and we’re certain that will be the case with his confident, eager-to-please demeanor (and I am loving that he’s clearly a mama’s boy😃). With a regular routine and high-food drive, Hamilton has learned so much in just one week; he is already house trained, sleeps in his crate with minimal fuss at night, and is excelling on sit, stay, lay down, paw, off, and no commands. We are so proud of him and so happy with our choice to get our Golden Retriever from your family farm!
From our first communication to taking Hamilton home, you have been informative and timely with your responses to my many questions. We got weekly “pupdates” including adorable photos and met the litter to determine which pup best fit our lifestyle. The puppy selection process was clear and fair, and pick-up was seemless. And as a researcher, I really appreciate all the scholarly research you provided on why fresh food diets are best. It’s hard to know what’s best for your new puppy, but I felt much more informed with those resources. Ham is thriving on his fresh food diet!
My only criticism is that we didn’t get to meet our puppy’s mom. We got to see some pictures briefly, but I would have appreciated a bit more transparency there since the parents’ temperaments are the best way to tell what our puppy would be like!
Overall, a great experience and we’re so happy with Hamilton! He’s the perfect addition to our family!

We are in love with our Golden Retriever from Autumn Creek Ranch. She’s playful, beautiful, and healthy. We were very intrigued with the farm raised dogs, knowing they were coming from a good home meant a lot. We’re excited for the years of fun to come with our fur friend.
