​We are a small hobby breeder of English / show style Labrador Retrievers located in rural North Texas.   Although there is only one Labrador breed, there are two widely recognized sub-types within the breed.  Our breeding program focuses on the "English" type, also referred to as show or bench type.  "English" style labs are very different from the more common "American" or field style labs in both general appearance and temperament.  We feel that the English lines produce dogs better suited for family pets, which is the main focus of our program.  You can find a great article describing the differences here:    http://www.labradortraininghq.com/labrador-breed-information/the-difference-between-american-and-english-labradors  All of our dogs are from "English" lines and boast AMAZING pedigrees with multiple championship titles in conformation/bench and some in agility and field trials as well.  Just let us know what you're planned purpose for a dog is and we can recommend the lines and breeding best suited to your needs.  We have litters planned throughout the year and produce all three recognized colors...yellow, chocolate, and black.  SORRY, WE DO NOT BREED SILVERS.

  ​We occasionally have adults for sale or are looking to trade puppies or stud dogs with other breeders in order to improve and broaden our own lines...please contact us regarding these options

All of our dogs are registered with the AKC and most are DNA verified.  Your puppy will come with AKC registration papers, which you can fill out and send in to complete the registration process.  Most of our pups are sold with limited  AKC registration as cherished family pets.  FULL AKC registration is available for additional fee to breeding or show homes.  Be sure to specify if you are seeking FULL registration papers as not all puppies will qualify for this privledge.

All of our breeding dogs are healthy and free of   and most in their pedigrees have hips and elbows certified by the OFA.  All parents are DNA tested for EIC, PRA, CNM, DM, HNPK, Cystinuria, & Hyperuricosuria to guarantee that no puppies produced by us will ever be affected by any of these devastating diseases.  All puppies are checked over by our vet prior to leaving us and come with a written health guarantee against genetic defects.

While we prefer puppies to be picked up in person, we can sometimes arrange to meet or deliver for a nominal fee.  We do also offer year-round air shipping via United Airlines PetSafe program.   We have found this option to offer the most pleasant experience to both puppies and customers, excelling in service, safety, and price.  There is an additional $400-$450 fee, which covers airfare, crate, paperwork, and interstate travel vet exam.
