Our Veterinarian says, "this is what a labrador retriever is supposed to look like." There is no better compliment for Greenbriar Plantation's breeding program. If your curious about labs or familiar with them and looking for one, make the call and visit Jim and Kathy. This is a full service kennel. Crate training, grooming, dominance training. Jim will teach you how to make your puppy a well behaved member of the family.

It was a little over two years ago I traveled to Greenbriar Plantation to meet with Jim and Kathy about most likely my last best friend. Wow what an experience. After about thirty minutes talking to Jim and asking and answering questions from each other I was sold. This is where my last pup was coming from. Being over sixty I wanted a buddy to finish out my life with. This is a class act for breeder. Now two years later with some extra help from Jim my boy "Whiskey" is quite a best friend.
I recommended a young man that works with me to look and he also bought a pup from Greenbriar. He too is so proud of the quality of dog he got.
If you are interested in a quality dog and breeder go see Jim and Kathy.

What a great experience!! Jim and Kathy are truly amazing people and I couldn't have asked for more. At greenbriar you can expect a personal experience. When I decided it was time for me to add a dog to my life I looked no further when I found greenbriar. The quality of dogs is unbeatable. From the time the pups were born to time I brought "Axel" home they made me feel like a part of their family. Even now 2 weeks later if I have a question about training or just want to give them an update Jim always answers the phone and is more than willing to give me advice. Thank y'all again for everything. I highly recommend greenbriar plantation.

★★★★★ Begin at the beginning. Last fall my wife and I decided to purchase a Labrador puppy for our grandchildren to grow up with. I have had and trained several of my own in the past, so I know the breed well. After calling, looking, and visiting several breeders we found Greenbriar. We looked no further. One visit and we were convinced of the quality, caring, honesty, and genuinely friendly atmosphere. It was clean, cared for, and professional. Jim Burris asked the right questions, then after meeting our grandchildren and daughter-in-law, showed us his recommendation for the bloodline of the puppy to be. We left a deposit, then paid in full shortly thereafter. The puppies arrived, but when it became time to pick her up, life unfortunately threw the family a curve and there was no way to insure the dog would receive the love and attention it deserved. We discussed this with Jim and not only did he offer his genuine care, he also promptly returned the entire amount we paid for the puppy. That shows honesty and integrity not often found in any business these days. If, in the future we feel we can finally purchase a puppy, there will be nobody considered other than Jim Burris at Greenbriar. I just wish there were more stars to choose from.

As I received the millionth compliment about our dog Jameson,I thought it was about time I commend Jim and Greenbriar Plantation for the amazing experience we've had with Jameson. Aside from being a beautiful yellow lab with that big block head that I love, he has the most wonderful temperament. At 7 months old, he is fully house broken and interacts so well with other dogs and people.He is already swimming and knows several commands! When we picked our puppy up, Jim spent over an hour with us one on one showing us training techniques, feeding tips, general health information, and much more. As first time puppy owners we were really nervous about becoming new parents and Jim put us at ease! Looking back his "puppy condo" model has been a lifesaver. Jameson has been such a gift and we want to thank Greenbriar for breeding such wonderful dogs and running such an amazing operation. Any one would be lucky to have one of their dogs as a companion!

Thanks again! Anneliese Peter & Jameson

I started looking for a lab pup in 2013 after having to put my chocolate down 6 years earlier. Through word of mouth and the internet, I found Greenbriar Plantation. What a wonderful experience it has been! Jim and Kathy are fabulous people and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Labradors. After visiting the kennels and seeing the quality of their breeding stock and cleanliness of the entire place, I knew that I had found the right breeder. Once my litter was whelped, I made several trips up to see how the pups progressed. Much love, alot of "hands on" and a great environment made it clear that any pup was going to be a quality well adjusted dog. I picked up Gus (a yellow male) in late January and, because of Jim's training methods starting from day one, had him housebroken within a week and a half. His natural desire to retrieve became evident shortly thereafter. Don't get me wrong, Gus is full of "puppy" and constant supervision, attention and training are required. But, having owned lab pups before, there is clearly a difference in his willingnes to please and "do his job"! Jim and Kathy are always just a phone call or e-mail away with tips to refine his behavior. I took him back to Jim at 3 months to see how he reacted to gunfire and he was solid as a rock (at 3 months!). I look forward to spending more time at Greenbriar honing Gus's skills and visiting Jim and Kathy. Thank you for my new best friend! Anyone looking for a Labrador should consider looking into Greenbriar Plantation, you won't be disappointed.

We lost our 15 year old Labrador in November and began a search for a new partner a short time later. We visited several kennels in South Carolina and Georgia when we found Jim and Kathy. We were immediately impressed with their facilities and with their obvious love of all things Labs. Jim interviewed us as we were interviewing him. It is clear that he wants the best homes for his retrievers. We put a deposit for a new Lab the same day and picked up our boy on March 14th. Couldn't be happier with our new family member. Jim has answered several questions we've had and we highly recommend this facility if you are looking for a quality Labrador breeder.

I got Daisy from Jim in September, and I couldn't be happier. From the start, Jim was great to deal with, and it was clear that he really cares about the dogs. Within 5 days of bringing Daisy home, she was pretty much housebroken and would sit on command. Jim does a great job of preparing the pup and the owner for the first few weeks together. When I get another lab, it'll definitely be from Jim.

It is hard for me to put into words just how wonderful my experience has been over the past 6 months working with Jim and Greebrier. I first met Jim over the phone several months ago when I was looking into getting a lab puppy. My 13 year lab had just passed away and I wanted a new puppy but I wanted the "right" new puppy. I spoke to a number of breeders over the phone but none of the breeders were as professional and genuinely kind as Jim. He truly is an extraordinary man. It became so apparent to me when first talking with him, that Jim loves what he does and he loves his adult dogs and puppies. He takes so much pride in caring for his adult dogs and puppies. When I first made the trip down to Greenbrier, I knew immediately that this was where I wanted to get my puppy. Greenbrier farms is beautiful! The pups are so very well treated and loved. Jim took a great deal of time talking with me and telling me about his puppies and the way that he cares for them. Yet again, Jim was very professional and superbly gracious and kind. I received weekly pictures and notes about my puppy after he was born and these updates were truly the highlight of my week. When I went to pick up Litte Gus, Jim took over 2 hours talking to us about training and helpful ways to raise our little one. Gus is now almost 10 weeks old and he is amazing. He is simply a great dog! He has such a good temperment, is so very smart and is absolutely gorgeous! I live in Charleston, SC and I am around lots and lots of people that know about labradors and had tons of suggestions about breeders,etc. Every one of them now comments on how extraordinarily handsome and smart Gus is and they continue to ask me the name of the breeder. Everyone is beginning to know about this hidden treasure...I owe so much to Greenbrier Kennels and Jim for this fabulous addition to our lives. We are so thankful. I highly recommend Greenbrier to anyone who wants a great looking and extremely smart lab. Thank you Jim for your tremendous kindness!!

I have been a Lab owner for 30 years. Growing up in Maine it was basically the law that you owned a Lab. Last April we lost our current "man's best friend" Cipo at an early age. A few months later the house was off and my wife said we needed to start looking for another Lab. We live in Charlotte now so I began to look around. Every website I went on and breeder I spoke to bothered me in some way until I found GPK. Every dog looked exactly like what we were looking for - Std Lab size, Block Heat, Otter Tails and that look in their eyes that they were smart. I called Jim and he called me back within minutes. I explained our situation to Jim and after about a 20 min call I was sure we wanted to have a look at GPK. I told Jim we wanted a Male Chocolate first choice but health and breeding was more important than color to us and we didn't mind waiting. We made plans to drive over 3 hours the next Sat. We arrived to find Velvet delivering pups. We were so excited as she threw a Male Chocolate and we were there to see our boy being born! Jim was GREAT with us and sent us pictures weekly. Mello was housebroken in less than 3 weeks, is SUPER smart, Excellent coat, Perfect looks and wants to please everyone he comes across! We are so happy to have found Jim and GPK. would recommend Jim to anyone wanting a quality dog!
