- Our Kennel is located in Southeastern Ohio, nestled among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. This kennel is the legacy left behind by my very first Labrador Retriever "Miranda Lynn". Miranda was purchased for me by my husband for my birthday in 1990. I had asked for an Irish Setter and he was unable to find one so he took a chance and brought me home "Mandy". Mandy instantly stole my heart and thus began my love for the breed. Unfortunately, Mandy was later diagnosed with hip and elbow dysplasia and never was able to breed. She was nearly crippled by age 9 and developed Cataracts which blinded her. Mandy of course was never bred but she mothered my two daughters and was their constant watchful eye and companion. She and my youngest enjoyed their puppyhood together and she taught Tierra how to talk dog. (Just ask anyone that has seen Tierra train or handle a dog at a hunt test)
Mandy passed away June 22, 2003 and is greatly missed. Because of this experience I work extra hard to ensure that I breed the most healthy, genetic defect free dogs that I can. We breed only with dogs with OFA Excellent and Good ratings and CERF eye clearances. I breed for drive, intelligence, hunting ability, trainability, and conformation. My dream is to breed the next Dual Champion. Health and Disposition are the two main qualities that I look for, my girls have to go through a stringent screening process where they must not only pass the normal hip, elbows and eye certification process but also their Patella, Thyroid & Cardiac are certified normal by the OFA. In addition to this, their DNA is on profile with the AKC and UKC. They are DNA tested as non-carriers of CNM (Central Nuclear Myopathy - formerly Labrador muscle Myopathy) and tested for EIC. All pups are raised in my home among various other dogs and cats - who like to be retrieved Believe It Or Not!!. All pups are micro-chipped, dewclaws removed, 1st series of shots, started on Interceptor and Frontline Plus, introduced to ducks and/or pheasants as well as water (In bad weather I use my Jacuzzi tub they love the jets - Not the NY Jets : > ( I have bred Search & Rescue dogs, service dogs, drug and bomb detection dogs, bench champions, therapy dogs, wonderful companion dogs, as well as successful working Labradors. I endeavor to breed the best from the best breed out there. All sires have a proven performance record as well as proven stud potential. I research every dog in at least 5 generations trying to find the best genetic matches to my females. Every name in every pedigree is a link to a page that will come up with all of the information that I could find on every dog. This page contains the usual registration numbers, OFA information, coat colors carried, etc.. as well as accomplishments, titles, siblings, offspring, DNA Profiles, parents and any known genetic problems such as CNM carrier, etc. There are 63 dogs in each 5 generation pedigree. My links page contains links to AKC, UKC, CNM, OFA, CERF, Hall of Fame List, and much much more. All you should know about raising and training a dog is on the "Training Tips" page and "Buying Pup Tips" has information that you should know before buying a pup from us or someone else, whether you are buying a Lab or another breed it is full of useful information. Please, browse around, enjoy our site and make use of the information that it contains.
