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. 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 very excited about this confirmation style breeding, which will produce black mostly black and some chocolate puppies.   
Rio is a show champion who is currently working toward his Junior Hunter title.  He is a sweet, eager to please, high drive dog with an excellent on and off switch.  


Sunshine is the daughter of Hunting Retriever Champion/ Show Champion Klassic's High Voltage F-18 (Jett) Master Hunter.  One of only around 40 dogs to ever achieve all of of those titles combined!  I ran Jett for his HRCH title and fell in love with his silly, happy and eager to please personality.  Sunshine is very similar to her dad in appearance, her absolute adoration for her people and her drive to retrieve! 
We are very excited about the combination of these two dogs, they should produce some beautiful, driven puppies!

Legends Of Texas Tessa
Junior Hunter

I am so excited to have a litter of chocolates in my house this spring!  Tessa is a classic, American type Labrador, she is a daughter of HRCH Ginger SH, my foundation female.  Tessa has the exact same amazing on and off switch that put Legend Retrievers on the map.  Tessa is a co-own, her family calls her the chocolate rocket!  Her mom loves taking her in the backyard and doing their daily retriever sessions, but inside the house, Tessa is a snuggle bug!  When it comes to work and retriever drive, Tessa is second to none.  

Rio is a classic conformation type, with a moderate build.  He is eager to please, very pliable and has great drive!  Rio is really a thinker, which is what I am counting on him bringing to this breeding.  He watches, observes and thinks through his responses, where sometimes Tessa can be all go!  They should combine to make some nice moderate body size dogs with excellent drive and trainability.  

These puppies would be suitable for Service Dog candidates who would work at a higher energy level, they would be candidates to perform intelligent disobedience tasks (interrupting a disabled person from walking into the road, or stopping an autistic child from leaving home without parents.)

 Rub has one seasoned pass and one master pass, I expect her to achieve her master title Spring of 2022.  Ruby has also completed her certification as a Therapy dog and next she plans to master human remains detection!  Bacon is titled as a junior hunter but because he truly shines as a therapy dog I completed his therapy certification and have not continued pressing field work.

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 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.  This is a repeat breeding, I received SO much positive feedback, especially from professional trainers after their last litter, than I decided to repeat it so that I can keep a puppy for myself!

I am so excited about this confirmation style breeding! Spirit has the most amazing sweet, gentle disposition.  He excelled with children, having a natural understanding of their smaller size, he is gentle, caring and affectionate with small kids. Spirit's retriever drive is fantastic, his eagerness to please and pliability are off the charts.  Spirit puppies will be candidates for just about anything you could want to do with a puppy!

Tesla is a driven and powerful retriever, with a silly, quirky and playful personality!  Tesla is an import, both of her parents coming from Europe.   Tesla comes from some top producing show lines in the UK and boasts a recognizable pedigree for those who are familiar. 
We are very excited about the combination of these two dogs, they should produce some beautiful, driven puppies!

Autumn X Tug

Autumn is one of my premiere females, she boasts an impressive pedigree including field and show titles.  Autumn has a full littermate brother who is a working PTSD Service dog and has produced a service dog for a 7 year old boy with Autism out of her previous litter.  She has a very calm and pleasant demeanor, she loves to snuggle and is very people oriented.  Her intelligence and trainability are exceptional, she excels in field work and is a reliable member of my team of Therapy dogs that regularly volunteers at our local Christian children's home.   The sky is the limit for Autumn puppies, with exceptional structure and temperament, these dogs really can do anything! 

I plan to breed her to Tug, who has a fabulous calm temperament, a team player attitude, paired with phenomenal drive.  We are still getting the details of this breeding squared away, so please complete the puppy application to inquire further about plans for this pairing.
