We will possibly have an all black litter in May 2017. Check back for details.
We do not have yellow or chocolate puppies and will not have any upcoming litters containing yellows or chocolates anytime soon.
If you are looking for a Labrador, you may wish to check out the HRLRC
Breeder Directory for other local breeders who may have
puppies or older dogs available for placement. Or, consider contacting a Labrador rescue organization such as 3rd Coast Labrador Rescue to look for your next companion.
Please read through the information below
if you are considering purchasing a puppy from us.
~Our Breeding Philosophy~
We are a small hobby kennel usually produing only
one litter per year. We do not breed just to sell puppies.
Careful thought is put into each breeding to find compatible sires
to breed to our girls. We only breed if we are planning to keep
a pup for ourselves so please do not ask us for the pick puppy.
We realize most of our puppies will not grow up to be "show
dogs" but rather much loved family members, outstanding companions,
and hunting partners. Check out the "Bred
by Us" page to see some photos our puppy buyers have
taken of their Labs they acquired from us.
We urge you to take time to research whether a Labrador Retriever
is the right breed for you. Keep in mind Labradors can be large,
energetic and friendly. Many are powereful, determined chewers
so be sure you are prepared to provide lots of acceptable chew
toys and bones to satisfy this urge (else, they will find alternatives
that you may not agree with!). When left to their own devices,
they will also find ways to entertain themselves such as by "pruning"
plants in your yard, "gardening", and digging holes
so be prepared to spend time interacting with a Labrador family
member so that their energy can be channeled in a positive way.
There is no such thing as a non-shedding Labrador. Labradors
will shed year round and usually have two bouts of major shedding
a year. There are lots of wonderful resources available at your
local library and online to help you research Labradors. Should
you have any questions, give us a call or email us. We promise
to “tell it like it is” as we want to be sure our
puppies are placed in homes where families understand the positive
and negative aspects of having a Labrador family member.
All of our pet puppies
are sold on AKC Limited Registration.
~Health & Rearing~
All dogs in our breeding program have Orthopedic Foundation for
Animals (OFA) hip, elbow, and cardiac clearances as well as yearly
eye exams by a certified canine opthamologist. We may also elect to perform genetic tests on our breeding stock for EIC (exercise induced collapse) and PRA (progressive retinol atrophy; Optigen test). We do our best
to help ensure healthy puppies are produced. However, dog breeding is not an exact science; there is no way to completely guarantee the health of any animal.
All puppies born at Endeavor will receive the same quality care
regardless of whether they will be staying here with us or going
to a companion home. We socialize all our dogs so they are well
used to being loved and handled. They are born and raised in our
home so are exposed to "comings and goings," have been
around other dogs, and have heard common household sounds such
as televisions, phones, vacuums, etc. They will also be introduced
to bird wings before leaving for their new homes as well as been
exposed to crate training.
Puppies will be micro-chipped, receive their first vaccinations
at six weeks of age, be dewormed, and have opportunities to play
outside (weather permitting) before going to their new homes at
approximately 7-8 weeks of age. Puppies come with a warantee as
well as helpful information regarding raising and training your
Labrador. We are available to answer any questions our puppy buyers
may have regarding raising and training their Labs.
Should you be unable to keep a puppy acquired from us, we request
the dog be returned to us so that we may find a suitable home
WE WILL TAKE BACK ANY DOG OF
OUR BREEDING AT ANY TIME
IF HIS/HER OWNERS ARE UNABLE TO KEEP HIM/HER.
