Upcoming Litters:

I am always accepting upcoming litter reservations.

I have all of my planned breedings for the year posted here so that you can take your time, shop, and have plenty of opportunity to reserve a puppy from a breeding in which you are interested.

There is a $350 Deposit Required to get on the list for a Puppy (Generally Speaking). This deposit goes towards the cost of your puppy.  It is Non- Refundable for one year, from the date that you placed the deposit.  If I am unable to produce a puppy for you within that year, you may request return of your deposit, or you may continue to wait on the list. You may be on the list for more than one litter at a time.  One deposit per puppy, not per household.  So, if you wish to purchase two puppies, you would need to place two deposits.  (I will waive the deposit fee for Service Dogs and under other special circumstances.  Contact me if you think your situation might qualify) Complete the Puppy Questionnaire to reserve a future breeding or inquire further about the process.

We are so excited to bring you round two of this repeat breeding!  The firs Bacon and Autumn litter was so successful that it is back by popular demand!

Bacon and Autumn combined to produce extremely balanced puppies with a fabulous, easygoing temperament, with the drive and eagerness to please that you have come to expect from Legend.  Puppies from this pairing had a moderate bone structure, with shades from as light as a true yellow with red undertones all the way to the one true fox red female in the the litter.  I kept pick of the litter male from this first litter, and have been so pleased with the temperament that I plan to keep pick of the litter female from this repeat.  

Bacon and Autumn puppies will thrive as Therapy dogs/ Emotional Support dogs, Hunting dogs and family companions.  Their puppies would also have the temperament to be Service dogs, but because all of the earlier spaces on this litter are booked, we are no longer accepting SD reservations on this planned breeding.

Hunting Retriever Ridgecrest's Estella Yankee Rose 

We are very excited about this confirmation style breeding, which will produce yellow and black puppies.  Axel is a very exciting stud, having achieved titles in so many different sports, from field, show and with his advanced CGC titles he has demonstrated his calm easygoing temperament to match his work drive!

Stella is a powerful and driven hunter, having picked up hundreds of birds from Canada geese to dove in south Texas.  She transitions from a retrieving machine  to a gentle, loving companion in the house, who adores a good belly rub!  Stella's on and off switch is amazing, with natural marking ability that is something to write home about! Stella's Sire in a Hunting Retriever Champion, her Dame is a Show Champion, giving her the pedigree on both sides to do it all! Stella is currently working towards her Hunting Retriever Champion title.
  We are very excited about the combination of these two dogs, they should produce some beautiful, driven puppies!

Legend's Red Hot Rebel Jewel

Senior HUnter * Canine Good Citizen * Working Certificate * Therapy DOgs International

 Rub has one seasoned pass and just completed three consecutive senior passes to earn her Senior Hunter Title.  She will be debuting in Master tests Summer 2021, she has also completed her certification as a Therapy dog.  Bacon is ready to take his CGC and Therapy test!

Bacon comes from an accomplished HRC line of British and English Fox Reds out of Louisiana, both parents are HRCH titled, his sire is a MH.  Ruby also comes from accomplished hunt test lines, both parents being HRCH MH titled, with an impressive list of GRHRCH dogs on Sire's side and FC's on Mom's side.  Bacon and Ruby are both ultra talented in the field.  Ruby is an exceptional natural marker with a superior memory for multiple birds.  She is also extremely pliable and takes direction well on blinds.  Bacon has great drive and is really the thinker, he takes direction beautifully when handling and is a real team player.  

In the house, you couldn't ask for two better dogs.  Ruby is Mason's dog, she sleeps with him at night and follows him everywhere he goes.  Bacon is also (technically) Mason's dog, Mason ran Bacon for several of his started points in HRC tests.  

As a breeder you will regularly hear me say- you breed balance to balance to achieve balance.  These to dogs are the epitome of proper breeding, superior temperament and will produce some beautifully balanced puppies.  I am very excited about the combination of these two dogs.

Puppies!

 

With multiple Labrador Retrievers of my own, I understand how important it is to have a dog with intense drive that is still capable of being in your home and an obedient member of your family. This is what I mean by a Legendary dual-purpose hunting retriever and family companion.

When I breed Labs, I strive to combine strong drive with positive personality traits to be sure that I am producing gentle, intelligent, social, obedient, and driven dogs that will mesh with your family, as well as your hunting schedule.

 

 

My primary focus had intitally been training, but  over the years I have produced some exceptional  dogs and this success has created a demand for more field breedings of intelligent, trainable, gentle family companions.

 

I specialize in American, English and British, black, yellow and chocolate Labrador Retrievers. Even if I don’t have a current litter, I typically have some suggestions for breeders and puppies in Central Texas. I am also very happy to look at pedigree or breeder's websites and provide advice and suggestions to help you find your ideal companion.
