I was an Air Force Brat. My husband was a Navy Brat whose family had German Shepherds while mine bred Labradors. Our first dog together was a German Shepherd. After his passing, I convinced my husband to try a Lab - her name was Jenna; she was soon joined by Shanna. That was 26 years ago.
The other boy was short, heavy and obsessed with retrieving but would tire quickly; he could live without ever setting a toe in water.
Adopted at 2 and 3 respectively, we adored both these lads but neither of them resembled the Labs I had grown up with. (That's our Indie Boy pictured left.)
I began to talk to Breeders about working with them to establish our own breeding program. Finally finding one willing to grant us full registration, in the spring of 2006, we brought home our Callie, the daughter of an International Champion. Raising her for the purpose of breeding her, I quickly realized that she had no water drive and very little retrieve drive either. A wonderful and gorgeous companion, she too was not the Labrador I had known in my childhood.
Our goal is to produce Dual Purpose Labradors that embody both the working traits and moderate body structure of the Traditional Labrador Retriever.
Our Labradors are family members; litters are whelped and weaned in our home where socialization and the groundwork for training begins immediately. This leads to secure, well adjusted, easy to train Labrador puppies for sale that will be your perfect companion.
Before breeding, our Labradors receive OFA certification for Hips and Elbows. One or both parents are genetically tested for diseases known to affect the breed.
We do not use any Labrador in our program that does not exhibit the traditional traits of the past, this includes the loving, fearless and patient temperament, the moderate body type (neither too tall and thin or too short and heavy) as well as the retrieve and water drive Labrador Retrievers were originally bred to exhibit.
We commit to our puppies for their lifetime which means an open line of communication with their adopted family and a promise to help with training. Read more on Puppy Care
