We purchased Raven, our female black Labrador, from Nye's Labradors in June of 2016 and we
couldn't be more pleased. She is an absolute gem! I took her to North Dakota chasing ringneck
pheasants her first year when she was only 6.5 months old and she killed it, bagging 29 roosters.
This year (2017), not so many due to the low population numbers, but that didn't stop Raven; she
gave it her all. You worry when purchasing a new pup if they'll have the nose for birds or the
drive to hunt hard...Raven has proven to have both. She is an absolute sweetheart and very
affectionate, yet tenacious enough to bust through the thickest of cattails after the orneriest of
roosters. In addition to being a hunting machine, she's a great family dog as well. Being an
English Labrador, she's slightly smaller is size which we actually prefer. She's full grown now at
approximately 48-50 pounds. Additionally, she's got longer legs or perhaps normal size legs. I
don't like the look of Labradors that are short to the ground; Raven stands tall. With these legs,
she stands tall in the cut stubble and grass when hunting upland birds, and tall in the snow when
hunting sheds in the winter time during the off season (something we're still working on). Her
small size makes her ideal for taking her everywhere you go, whether it's the pick-up truck, boat,
or float plane. She doesn't take up much room on the bed either (that's right, she sleeps on the
bed with us). She's not high strung or obsessive; she has the perfect disposition. Whatever your
interest is, so is theirs, and they won't disappoint. It's been said "you get out of a dog what you
put into a dog," but it helps to start with good genetics.

I have owned Labradors all of my life and was actually raised from childhood around Labs. I got a black male from Nyes Labradors a year ago and I have been thrilled with him since before we got him. The Nyes very graciously allowed us to view the pups from birth until we made our final choice. Their facility was always very clean and well cared for. The puppies were very active and alert. I have had my Jaxon now for nearly a year and he continues to amaze me. He has picked up his training very quickly and is very eager to please. He loves the water and is a very powerful swimmer. He enjoys my companionship, almost as much as I enjoy him. He is very quiet and attentive. He has made a great addition to our family. I would recommend Nye's Labradors to anyone looking for a new puppy whether it is for hunting, companionship, or both.
