Hybrid: LABRA-GOLD RETRIEVERS (Golden Retriever Length hair)
Our first Spring litter of "Labra-Gold Retrievers" was a "first litter" from our beautiful long, shiny, black haired
"Ellie Mae" (87.75% AKC Golden Retriever & 12.25% AKC Labrador Retriever)
and Fathered by our Handsome 100% AKC Golden Retriever "Beau" (Dam = Millie & Sire = Pat).
Her puppies are our first 4th Generation breeding of our popular "Labra-Gold" Retrievers.
and are almost purebred Goldens at 93.75% AKC Golden & 6.25% AKC Labrador Retriever.
Extremely loving Family Pets and Fabulous Retrievers in field or stream.
I refer to them as our:
"Black Gold Retrievers"
"White Gold Retrievers"
They have the Body & Hair appearance of a Stander Golden Retriever, but have Hair Color Either:
Shiny Black or Brilliant White & Occasionally a very Light Gold
I have been developing this line of Retrievers over the past 10 years
THIS COMBINATION HAS RESULTED IN THE SWEET, "LOVE EVERYBODY" DISPOSITION OF THE BEST OF BOTH BREEDS (Labs & Goldens)
Long Haired Labra-Gold Retrievers
Our next litter of 3rd Generation Labra-Gold puppies (87.75% AKC ) are due the 4th week of April 2021 (Bell & Ivan)
This Litter will likely produce puppies in coat colors of Black, White and Light Gold or Cream.

Why some of our fees have increased.
We are sorry to have found it necessary to raise our puppy adoption fees $100 in 2020
For many years our dog breeding was managed entirely by me and my family, The children are gone,pursuing their own careers.
My wife of 63 years passed away in March of last year thus l lost my Manager, secretary, baby puppy caregiver, emergency animal helper,
plus many other pursuits around house, grounds & kennel.
Requiring me to hire additional outside help. (I'll be 93 on my next birthday, be the Good Lord Willing.
"FATHER TIME" is taking his toll on me so I can't do as much of the cleaning/maintenance that I used to.
That means hiring more help (more expense) to give your puppy top-notch love and care.
Remember, I don't play Golf so I have to sit on my bench in the puppy's play yard & play with them~!!!
I get to smell that “Puppy Breath” every day, don't you feel sorry for me???
We normally keep 12-14 adult dogs in our breeding group and the cost of care & feeding is the same per year for 3-4 litters as it is for 10.
They must all be fed, groomed, exercised, vaccinated, take their Heart Worm Plus medications, and of course be loved on, etc. also;
the average female can/should deliver no more than 4-5 litters in her lifetime.
I keep most of mine forever; or as long as my wife, "She who must be obeyed", puts up with me.
Still I am told my price per Quality puppy is one of the lowest in Florida.
And, the overall sweetness, health & quality of my babies exceeds the majority of Florida’s Golden & Lab Breeders.
WANT TO KNOW THE BEST WAY TO FIND OUT THE QUALITY & "KEEPABILITY" OF A PRODUCT (Car, Computer or DOG)???
TALK OR READ THE TESTIMONIAL OF SOMEONE WHO OWNS ONE.
