In the early morning hours of May 20th Tess blessed us with a litter of wonderful Lab puppies to help us celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first litter of puppies and our 28th year in the breed! Of the five males, four are yellow and one is black. The three females include two black and one yellow.
The sire of the litter, Tanner (Torgs Hunting Memories), is a very handsome well built fox red yellow Lab. His pedigree is outstanding, having been sired by FC AFC Gunstock's Topshelf Snap Decision out of a daughter of FC AFC CAFC Money Talks II. You can find additional information about Tanner, including his health clearances, pedigree, and pictures at: http://www.torgslabs.com/Tanner.htm.
The puppies mother, Tess (Orion's Bold Huntress), is a very good looking Lab with a beautiful head and soundly built body. She's very athletic, has great stamina in the field, and is a proven producer of exceptional puppies. For more information about Tess, including her health clearances, pedigree, and pictures go to: http://www.orionlabradors.com/Huntress.php.
Both parents have passed physical screenings of their Hips, Eyes, and Elbows; and are tested clear of deleterious genes for EIC and CNM. Plus, Tess is clear by parentage for prcd-PRA and RD/OSD. And if physical conformation and good looks are important to you, this breeding will produce some of the best looking field-bred Labs pups around, plus they should inherit all of the talent needed to excel in the field.
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 they have no congenital eye defects.
Each puppy is priced at $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.
