We are a small breeder just outside Eugene, Oregon near King Estate Winery. We have a few litters a year and our dogs are fully tested for genetic diseases. We enjoy participation in showing, hunt tests, dock dogs, outings to the beach and just living with our dogs. They are very much a part of our lives. We offer the full range of yellow Labradors from light cream to fox red.

Ever since we got our puppy, we have heard nothing but compliments! She has grown to be a smart and beautiful pup. Great duck hunter and is an amazing family dog.
We will be looking forward to working with Cold Creek Farms in the future!

Ellemae, who is the litter mate of Gretchen's Piper, joined our home in April 2012. She is a wonderful beautiful dog with an outgoing personality. Gretchen let us visit several times to play with the puppies and meet her adult dogs when we were deciding which one to choose. She had us bring a toy to put with the litter which is the only one that she does not shred. When we picked up Ellemae, Gretchen sent us home with a home made baby blanket, toys, food, instructions, and I don't remember what else, but it was quite a load of stuff. We have stayed in touch and brought Ellemae down for a play date with Piper. Great fun!

We brought 8 week old Bosley to our home 11 months ago. He is a fabulous yellow lab who has brought such joy and activity to our family. Bosley is intelligent, loyal, friendly, and has that happy and enthusiastic personality that makes a well bred lab such a marvelous family dog. He loves the fields and streams of the countryside, the beach and waves of the ocean, and a good walk in the neighborhood. He is also great in the Pearl District of Portland, and just lying by our sides. We are grateful to Gretchen for her hard work in bringing such a wonderful dog to our lives.

We adopted our boy Louis from Gretchen last February . She was very helpful answering all of our questions, and sent us frequent pictures starting right when the pups were born. We loved getting pictures of the puppies and watching them grow for those first 10 weeks. Louis is a great water dog and loves fetching. My family always comments on how he would be a great hunting dog if we hunted. He's extremely friendly and loyal; he never leaves our side. He absolutely loves to cuddle. We could not have asked for a better adoption experience.

We just recently adopted "Daisy" from Gretchen at Cold Creek Farms. It was a wonderful experience from the first email we sent her after the loss of our first labrador. She was kind and helpful. The process was very smooth and we were sent updates and pictures once our puppy was born. We went to visit at 4 weeks and 6 weeks. We brought her home at 10 weeks. She immediately fit into our family and is a great dog. She is quick to learn and great with our kids. I would definitely recommend Cold Creek Farms.

I adopted my yellow boy Oliver from Gretchen this year and he is now six months old and is one incredible dog. From the first email I sent Gretchen she was very helpful and very kind. I don't think you will find a breeder who cares more about the puppies than she. Gretchen is easy to work with and made the puppy picking process very enjoyable. I highly recommend Gretchen as a breeder.

My parents choose cold creek farms because of their high quality and strict breeding standards. Everywhere I go, everyone tells me my dog is the most beautiful lab they have ever seen.
I should changed his name to wing man, cause the girls love my puppy.

I got Mandy, my female, yellow lab almost 4 years from Cold Creek Farms. Gretchen is such a hands-on breeder and expert in all things "Labs." I get so many compliments on Mandy when I have her out walking. She is very friendly, is great with young kids and has a good temperment. She has a classic lab look and her coat is so beautiful. The retriever instinct in her was definitely well-bred. I highly recommend Gretchen and Cold Creek Farms!!

I purchased one of Grethen's fox red labs last year. My female is extremely smart and an awesome hunter. Even as a young pup she was always birdy. At eight months old she was retrieving live birds. Since then she has retrieved pheasants, geese and many ducks. I am extremely impressed the way that she visually track birds.
If you are seeking great hunting labs with unique colors I would highly recommend the Fox Red's
