Promise has recently had a litter of 10 gorgeous black and chocolate puppies to Frankie “Catraz Come Fly With Me (Imp-Aust)”.

These pups have all now found new homes to go to. I won’t be having another litter for a few years, but if you get in contact with the South Island Labrador Retriever Club they will be able to point you in the direction of any upcoming DogsNZ registered litters. Please note the club can’t endorse any of these breeders, they can just let you know which registered breeders have or will be having litters, so make sure you do your research and visit before buying a puppy to make sure you are happy with the breeders and parents of the pups, the area in which the pups are raised and way in which they are being raised.

I’ve raised this litter using the “Puppy Culture” protocols which, among other positive things, helps create well rounded, balanced individuals who have been nurtured in an environment that fosters confidence, enjoyment of learning and resilience to novel stimuli (which could potentially be scary). They’re raised in our home around our kids and other animals.

Frankie (sire) has 2:2 hips, 0:0 elbows and is DNA clear for PRA/EIC/CNM/HNPK.
Promise (dam) has 0:3 hips, 0:0 elbows, is DNA clear for PRA/EIC/CNM and is an HNPK carrier (she is unaffected and no pups will be affected by this when she’s mated to a clear dog).

(Please note the white dots on the pups in the photos below are twink so I can tell them apart more easily).
