We have been breeding and raising quality Labradors Retrievers for pets, the Show Ring and for Hunting.
Jim purchased our first Labrador, Maggie (Hampshires Stormcraft), in 1995 from Mel Pfeifle (Hampshire Kennels) in Bradford, New Hampshire. Maggie is out of Ch. Hampshires Witchcraft x Lillimars Power of Love.
It has been a Labrador love affair ever since. We have expanded our kennel to include quality and sound Labradors from our dear friend and mentor, Susan Willumsen of Willcare Labradors.
We are proud of our offspring and we take pride in producing quality, easy-temperament Labrador Retrievers.
Although we feel our dogs are quite wonderful to look at, the most important requirement of our breeding program is temperament. We will never breed a dog with anything less than the perfect Labrador temperament as we keep puppies out of each litter. We have to live with them too!!! Our Labradors no matter what color they are have the same wonderful temperament. Our Labradors are the English style type. This means our dogs have broad head and bodies and have thick coats, just as a Labrador is supposed to have. Our dogs have a deep body, which sometimes gives the illusion of shorter legs, but they are still as tall as the required heights of the English breed standard as well as the AKC breed standard.
All of our dogs hips and elbows are certified through OFA and their eyes are cleared annually. Please email us to check for availability of our upcoming litters as we only have a special litter once or twice a year as well as to start our screening and application process.
