AKC Labrador Retrievers
We have a small breeding program of English AKC Labradors in the three standard colors of black, yellow and chocolate (non-dilute) as future family companions, service, and therapy dogs. Our priority for all of our puppies, regardless of their future “mission,” is excellence in temperament, intelligence, beauty, and health, and to this end we carefully selected our breeding dogs from kennels in Russia and Ukraine. All of our breeding Labradors have been health-tested, including certification of hips (OFA good or excellent or FCI HD: A/A) and elbows (OFA clear or FCI ED: O/O) and extensive genetic/DNA testing (for over 150+ diseases). We provide a life-time health guarantee that none of our puppies will develop the common Labrador genetic diseases of PRA, CNM, or EIC, or any of the other genetic diseases for which both parents have been screened.
Our Labrador Retrievers enjoy daily walks with the nuns on our 450+ acres of forest, hilled pastureland, and orchards, and are always ready for a game of fetch. Well-suited for show, therapy, obedience, and service work, they would also be affectionate and devoted family companions for an active family or individual with a fenced-in yard.
Upcoming Litter/Available Puppies
We currently have available one beautiful trained male, six months old, who has a wonderful affectionate temperament, is very intelligent, and is quite mellow (for a puppy!). He was born here at the convent and has been raised and trained by the sisters. He is available on limited AKC registration, and we believe that with advanced training, he would make an excellent candidate for therapy or service work. If interested, please contact us for photos and more details regarding this special young dog. We also plan on welcoming two 100% imported-line litters this fall. The first is an all-black litter (yellow and chocolate factored) due in early October. The foreign sire is a Junior Grand Champion of Ukraine and the dam, our Rita, is the daughter of a hunt-titled, four-time Champion of Ukraine. The second litter is a yellow/cream litter planned for later in the fall. The parents, our Petro and Eva, are both out of multi-champions of the Ukraine, have very strong pedigrees and excellent conformation. We are currently taking reservations and already have waiting lists for both litters. Eight-week-old puppies will be available on limited AKC registration for $2500. We may consider a serious show/breeding home on full registration. We welcome inquiries about our breeding program and our puppies, either by email or phone. Thank you and God bless you!
