Nothing brings us more joy than providing a family with a happy, healthy, Labrador Retriever Puppy that we know will grow up in a loving home and provide its owners with years of joy. One of the greatest things about our labs is the versatility of the breed. Also, our focus has always been on producing champion Gun dogs. Furthermore, our labs have gone on to be:  Water dogs, flushing dogs, pointing dogs, retrieving dogs, upland hunting dogs, waterfowl hunting dogs, dock jumpers, blood trackers, shed finders, deer dogs, therapy dogs, Wounded Warrior dogs, drug detection dogs, bomb detection dogs, and family pets.
