My beautiful silver labrador retriever Zola had her silver labrador pups on October 22nd. The labrador puppies will be ready for their new homes December 15th in time for Christmas when they are eight weeks old., although I will hold the pups until after the holidays, if that is best for your situation. I own three females of breeding age only who are my beloved pets, and I only breed once a year to the best sire for each female. My labrador girls live in my home, not in kennels. The pups were born in my house, and will spend lots of time with my friends, family and neighbors. I do not believe that dogs should be kept in cages, they need to be part of a family. Your pup will be very well socialized before he or she joins your family. My goal as a breeder is to raise easy going family labradors that have classic lab good looks. This is an outstanding litter. Zola is a very nice looking lab that I brought up to Iowa from a well known, long time champion lab breeder in Florida. Zola is a very gentle, kind and obedient dog, who passes these traits on to her pups, from the reports I receive from the families with pups from the last two litters. Based on the good messages I have received, I bred her back to the same male, for this third litter. The sire is a very athletic male who is a competitive dock jumper. The pups will have their first round of shots and you will receive a health record with dates of deworming and shots. They will be AKC registered. Reseve your puppy now. I can ship, if desired. I prefer local pickup, but will work with you. Please feel free to call me and ask more questions. I am in Des Moines, Iowa, if you would like to stop by and visit.
