Please read the following information before inquiring about a puppy
Since I get 3-6 puppy inquires per day, it's hard to keep up and be responsive.
I prefer for you to e-mail me so I get you in my computer contacts ... and can
avoid playing telephone tag.
When you do, please give me information about yourself, your family, your
lifestyle, current and/or previous dogs,
plans for the puppy/dog (facilities, care, training, and any specific plans
for showing, hunting, doing obedience, agility, rally, hunt tests, etc).
It's just fine if you just want a wonderful pet dog to love and share your life
I do not use a "form" ... I want to hear what you can offer to qualify
as a potential puppy family. We will then talk via phone at some point and
schedule a visit for you to meet me and my dogs if feasible. Thank you.
Puppy Process & Deposit Agreement
If you're looking for an adult Labrador
or older puppy, you can look at my page for "Available Dogs".
But, please note, that they are few and far between, from any good breeder.
If that's what you want, or if you simply cannot afford the cost of a well-bred
Labrador puppy, I highly encourage you to consider a Lab rescue group. One
of the best in this area is the Potomac Lab Rescue, affiliated with the Labrador
Retriever Club of the Potomac. They always have a variety of Labs needing
a forever home and a big advantage is that their dogs are all in foster homes
... not sitting in a shelter. This means that they can better evaluate the
dogs' temperament and placement options. And, they are "Lab people", who
know how to evaluate Labradors. Please check out their site from the link
The issue of Dewclaw Removal:
dewclaws. Not only is it torture to the 3-day old babies,
but there now are studies that indicate that the removal process
that connect to muscles, resulting in carpal arthritis, improper
balance and other soundness issues.
Also, the dogs actually use the dewclaws to hold things, and for
gripping ground in a fast turn, etc.
You just need to keep them clipped if the dog doesn't wear them
down. Here's a link to an excellent
article about dewclaw removal written by M. Christine Zink DVM,
