Full Advert Details

My pride and joy bitch has excelled herself with an outstanding litter of Labrador puppies born on 1 June 2021. This is her second litter and there is only 1 dog and 1 bitch now available. They will be a deep shade of fox red once their guard coat (topcoat) comes in. They are classed as ‘Yellow’ by the Kennel Club. All pups were born a good weight and are thriving.

She is a beautiful, kind, gentle lady, and an exceptional mum, being especially good with children. She is a loyal and reliable bitch being a pleasure to own. Yet she truly comes to life when out in the field and working, being fast with a great nose, always wanting to please.

Both the Bitch and the Sire have impeccable Kennel Club registered pedigrees, coming from a long line of Kennel Club Field Champions (60 FTCH and Master Hunters (USA) between them) and they have excellent health tests.
The bitch is a fox red working Labrador, and she is always waiting to meet people with one of her wonderful smiles.
She has been extensively health tested: -
Hips 4/5, Elbows 0
Eyes tested on 05 11 20 - Unaffected
DNA tested -
PRA - Progressive Retinal Atrophy - Clear
HNPK – Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis - Clear
CNM – Centronuclear Myopathy – Clear
EIC – Energy Induced Collapse – Clear
SD2 – Skeletal Dysplasia - Carrier

The Sire, a working Labrador, has a nice head and is a deep fox red shade of yellow. He has a particularly good frame and great muscle mass making him extremely fast. He is a strong dog, with incredible drive and game finding ability. His grandfather is a World Champion Trialling Dog in USA, who is still impressive today in any competition arena, yet it is the composure on real life hunts that makes him admired most.

The sire is extensively health tested: -
Hips 3/2, Elbows 0
Eyes tested on 23 11 20 - Unaffected
DNA tested: -
PRA - Clear
HNPK - Clear
CNM – Clear
EIC – Clear
SD2 – Clear
D/M - Clear
C/T – Clear
HUU – clear
Cystinuria – Clear

All pups will be HEREDITARY CLEAR of PRA, HNPK, CNM, EIC, SD2.

The In-Breeding Co-efficiency between these 2 dogs is 0% which is EXCELLENT as the average is 6.6%

The puppies are being brought up in the family home allowing them to get accustomed to household noises from birth which helps them with basic communication skills they will need in later life. As they are in an environment where they have frequent interaction with humans, they learn to associate and bond with people making them very well socialised by the time they leave.

They are already showing they are very bold! They will be used to being handled from birth and playing and interacting till they leave at 8 weeks. They will be used to the whistle at mealtimes setting them up to respond positively to come. The last litter was trained to toilet in a certain area of their whelping pen with a 100% success rate and this litter will be trained in the same way which helps make toilet training much easier when they get to their permanent homes.

Picking a puppy is a gamble, and if you do not do everything in your power to stack the odds in your favour then you are likely to lose. There is no other way around it. If you are thinking about a new four-legged addition to your family, focus on bloodlines first is one of the most important things. Without proper pedigree, you could be wasting a lot of money and suffer through years of frustration in training your dog. The reason we place such importance on pedigree is because instincts, intelligence, and pure ability can all be passed down from generation to generation, saving so much time and effort in those later months and years on training. All of us should try to find the best puppy possible. Unfortunately, those often have the highest price tags. After all, whatever the extra expense is will quickly be offset by ease of training which is priceless.

You need to make sure there are guarantees on its health. Hips, eyes, elbows, and DNA tested for PRA, HNPK, CNM, EIC, SD2, should all be hereditary clear in the site and the dam. Regular eye tests are important.

The pups will have been regularly wormed every 2 weeks with Drontal from birth and will get a precautionary flee treatment given before they leave.

They will leave our care from 27 July 2021 when they will be 8 weeks old with the following: -
1. KC registration papers
2. Microchip Registration papers
3. Kennel Club 6 weeks free insurance
4. Small supply of puppy food
5. Bedding with mum and siblings’ scent
6. Care advice and guidance sheets
7. A lifetime of help and advice if needed. Video training or 121’s can be given if required.

These pups will not be vaccinated as we personally believe pups should not be vaccinated before a minimum of 9 weeks of age as they still have plenty of their mother’s immunity.

Our requirement is that All puppies MUST go to a good caring and loving home. An enormous amount of care, love and attention has been given to breeding the best quality litter of puppies with all the required health tests being carried out and finest food and supplements to ensure the very best litter is born. These are exceptional puppies who deserve this.

If you are interested in acquiring one of these puppies, we require information about yourself, the home they will go to, what the family make up is, i.e. children/ages, location, will there be someone at home to look after them or facilities in place for dog walking etc, working homes, or pet only, any other dogs? Working family? Active family? We will send photos and videos once the reservation fee is paid and keep in regular contact.

If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to let us know. Please be patient if you make contact as these puppies will be popular, but we will do our best to reply asap.

A non-refundable reservation fee is required to guarantee a puppy and puppy choice can be selected from 5 weeks onwards, in the order they were reserved on a first come first served basis either by Whatsapp video call or face to face meeting (covid -19 restrictions applying). This would be immediately returned if something happened to the puppy. The premises are protected by CCTV and we would sight of ID and proof of address if you wish to make a reservation.

Safety Notice from Pets4Homes - NEVER send money for a deposit or pay for a pet online, unless using our Safe Deposit Service. Read more about it here. ALWAYS visit the advertisers home to view the pet and confirm they are genuine. Before contacting the seller, you MUST read our Pet Buying/Adoption Checklist below.

Puppy/Dog Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Labrador Retriever. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a dog or puppy from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list. If you have any concerns, report them to us.

  • Do your research first
    Getting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog. You can read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners. Also read our Labrador Retriever Dog breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit to be paid online without visiting the dog at their home, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER pay for a dog or send money as a deposit without visiting and seeing the dog at its home beforehand. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.

    Pets4Homes do not verify that all advertisers are genuine, so you must make sure you visit the advertiser at their home to confirm yourself. If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses why you cannot see the puppies mum, please walk away and report them to us. Pets4Homes do not allow the third party sale of puppies. All litters of puppies advertised, MUST have been bred by the advertiser.
  • Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?
    Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their puppies longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age puppies should be before leaving their mothers
  • Is the puppy/dog Microchipped ?
    From April 6th 2016 it will be required by law that all dog over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keepers details registered against them are kept up to date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have their details registered on the microchip database first. Please check to make sure you receive the microchip documentation with chip number BEFORE taking the dog or puppy home and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
  • Check the Health of the Puppy or Dog
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the puppy has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Is the puppy or dog up to date with their vaccinations?
    Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Older Dogs require booster vaccinations occasionally as recommended by their Vet. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. Puppies should have at least had their first set of vaccinations before they leave. If the seller has not started the puppies vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the puppies been treated for worms and fleas?
    Puppies should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Ask questions about puppies mother (and father)
    Ask how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Ask about her temperament. Ask if the parents have any health issues and if they have been tested for common health issues known in their breed. The advertiser should be willing to tell you all about the puppies parents.
  • Is the dog/puppy registered with the kennel club?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct kennel club documents BEFORE you decide to take the dog home. It may also be worth phoning the kennel club to check the information provided is correct.
  • Have the puppies been socialised ?
    Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Puppies that haven't been raised in a home environment may develop behavioural issues, have temperamental problems, be difficult to housetrain and find adjusting to family life hard.
