About Us and Our Dogs

We are a small New Mexico Labrador retriever breeder in the Albuquerque area. We produce 1-2 litters of quality Lab puppies per year. We have been conscientiously breeding Labradors for some 25 years, always in a small family atmosphere.

The sire of our present litters is Teddy, son of Micah who was the patriarch to our extended family and Maggie AKA Sahara Bear. Micah passed away a few years ago at the age of 13. Maggie is still with us and will be 12 July 15th, 2018. Teddy turned 8 February 14, 2018.

The dam to our present litters is Kyna. Kyna is born of champions.  Her hips and elbows are OFA certified good. Her Eyes are OFA certified clear and she has tested EIC clear. Kyna is 6 years old. I do not breed females beyond the age of 6. She may have one more litter and then she will be retired.

Unlike many New Mexico Labrador retriever breeders I do not re-home my females once they have been retired. They stay with us. They are part of our family and we are committed to their well being. 

At 2 weeks of age I start taking deposits. The new owner will at that time choose a color and a sex, however, the final choices will not be made until the time of pick up. The order of deposits will determine the order of the final choices.

The pups receive a lot of attention from us during their short 8 week stay. They are loved, handled and socialized every day. They remain in our home for up to 6 weeks and are then transferred to a secure outdoor kennel where they learn to use a doggy door and become accustomed to eliminating outdoors.

At 6 weeks of age they all go to see the vet. I use Dr. Vickie Averhoff at Vista Larga Animal Hospital. They receive there first shots and a thorough examination. No puppy will be sold with a known defect, however, we do not offer a health guarantee. We absolutely do everything in our power to be sure our clients receive a healthy happy puppy.

At 8 weeks of age the puppies are ready to go to their new homes. Final choices will be made based on the order of deposits in the event that there is only one puppy of the sex and color that you desire you will of course have already chosen. The new owners will receive a copy of the shot records and examination report from the veterinarian. Each puppy will be chipped using AKC reunite and we will provide the AKC registration application so that if you wish you can register the pup with the AKC. We do however only offer limited registration.
