ORION LABRADOR RETRIEVERS
BLACK & YELLOW LABRADOR PUPPIES DUE May 20, 2014
Sire: Torg's Hunting Memories JH, aka "Tanner"
Dam: HR Orion's Bold Huntress, aka "Tess"
I'm anxiously awaiting puppies from this outstanding breeding! The sire and dam are solidly built well balanced dogs of moderate size who possess classic Labrador heads, good coats, and nice otter tails. Tess weighs about 63 lbs. and is 22 ½ inches tall at the withers, while Tanner weighs around 72 lbs. and is about 23 ½ inches tall. Their size and build is ideal for a working Labrador, in my opinion.
Tanner is a very handsome dark fox red yellow Lab. He's solidly built without being bulky. He stands squarely and has good angulation. His head is classic Labrador, not overdone like many show bred Labs and not snipey or houndy like some field Labs. His pedigree is outstanding, with 25 of the 30 ancestors listed in his four generation pedigree having field titles! You can find additional information about Tanner, including his health clearances, pedigree, and pictures at http://www.torgslabs.com/Tanner.htm .
Tess is also a very good looking Lab with an exceptionally handsome head and stocky body for a bitch. She's very soundly built, has great stamina in the field, and she's a proven producer of exceptional puppies. Her pups have had excellent hip scores, plus they're intelligent and eager to please. For more information about Tess, including her health clearances, pedigree, and pictures go to http://www.orionlabradors.com/Huntress.php. If physical conformation and good looks are important to you, these two will produce some of the best looking field-bred Labs pups around!
Tanner is a young dog with lots of talent. He didn't get a chance to run AKC hunt tests last year because his owner was moving and building a new kennel, but both his owner and his trainer assure me that he will have his Master Hunter title before the end of this year. He's an excellent marker and loves the water. Tess has earned an HR title in HRC hunt tests and is a wonderful pheasant hunting dog. Their pups should inherit all of the talent needed to excel in the field.
The puppies will come with a 30 month guarantee against genetic defects of hips and eyes. If you want to insure that your pup comes from parents who have passed their health clearances you should examine the health certifications of these two exceptional Labs.

What more could you want? Both parents are talented, healthy, physically sound, beautiful, Labrador retrievers. Well, that only begins to describe this duo! The icing on the cake is their temperaments. Both are mellow reserved dogs who display a common sense attitude that isn't so common these days. Tess is a gentle affectionate dog who likes to sit calmly on my lap and snuggle. Tanner has an outstanding personality and is a calm sensible companion.
The puppies will enjoy the best care available. They will receive Early Neurological Stimulation, will be de-wormed, have their first vaccinations, and will be weaned onto Orijen Large Breed Puppy food. They will be exposed to a variety of auditory stimuli, including the Master's Voice Gundog Conditioning System. They will be introduced to water and pheasant wings and their eyes will be examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist to insure that they have no congenital eye defects.
The price is $1,000 with a $200 deposit required to hold your puppy. Selections will be made in the order deposits are received. The puppies will be available in mid-July. If you are interested in a Labrador puppy nurtured in an enriching environment from parents with the rare combination of physical soundness, ability in the field, health, beauty, and temperament please contact me.
