LABRADORS, is a registered kennel with the AKC, as well as being recognized as a Breeder Of Merit. We are dedicated to the betterment of the Labrador Retriever through high ethical standards of excellence in selective breeding,
exhibiting and preserving the breed's natural retrieving abilities and
keen love of water.
There are only 3 recognized colors in breed history for the labrador, black, yellow and chocolate. A silver labrador is not a purebred labrador.
We are a small but successful kennel, breeding only a few litters each
year. We pride ourselves in producing quality.
Our Labradors are first and foremost beloved family companions who
possess the temperaments that make them a joy to live with and
work with as therapy dogs.
Our Labradors have the beauty, style and conformation to compete in the
show ring. The soundness, intelligence and trainability to be good
hunting companions, obedience competitors and working service dogs.
Our dogs themselves, as well as their ancestors, have earned numerous titles in many venues.
Our Labradors are OFA certified for soundness on the following. We are also proven DILUTE FREE - D/D
Hips, Elbows, Eyes, Heart, EIC, HNPK, CNM (males)
All our dogs are Clear or Clear by parentage through OptiGen or Paw Print Genetics
for prcd/PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy).
EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) and HNPK (Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis) No puppy produced by Sher-Mi will ever be afflicted with these genetic disorders.
TVD (Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia) Our dogs are cleared for this heart disease by echo/color doppler. This is the only fool proof way to clear for this disease.
The difference between a purebred and a well–bred purebred can be summed up in two words: Responsible breeders. Simply put, they are the key to a healthy dog, one bred to the highest standards. Their hard work and dedication help preserve the health, temperament and quality of every breed. Responsible breeders serve as canine ambassadors. Responsible breeders care. They make sure to use genetic screening tools.
We hope you enjoy your visit and we invite your inquiries regarding our
puppies and our boys who are standing at stud. We also occasionally have
older basic trained puppies and adults available.
