All puppies are whelped and raised inside our home where they are socialized daily as members of our family.
We do NOT and will NOT ship our puppies under any circumstances. We are more than happy to consider families from outside the area who wish to come to our home to pick up their puppy.
All of our puppies are sold under a limited American Kennel Club registration with a spay/neuter contract.
We do NOT take deposits before breeding is CONFIRMED via ultrasound. Only then (when a single-color litter is expected) will a couple of deposits be taken before the actual birth. However, a waiting list is started and those on it will be notified first and in order of when COMPLETED questionnaires were submitted.
For Health and Safety reasons, visits to our home are permitted, by appointment only, up until a week before expected due date (unless puppies under the age of 5 weeks are in our home). Visits to pups will be permitted, by appointment for those whose deposits have been received (once pups are at least 5 weeks of age).
***Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have suspended visits until further notice***
All parties MUST fill out our Puppy Application to be considered for one of our pups.
Photos of current and previous pups can be viewed on our Facebook page – Debonair Labs.
Our Labradors must have the appropriate temperament and health clearances before any decisions are made for breeding. I ONLY breed Black or Chocolate Labradors at this time; Blacks and Chocolates are just OUR preference and all we offer.
Our sole purpose in breeding is to keep at least a pup or sometimes two as potential show prospects for ourselves, to improve, and strengthen our breeding program. I NEVER breed with intentions of selling an entire litter.
Any remaining puppies not selected for us and our breeding program will be placed in loving homes as pets/companion under Limited American Kennel Club Registration and under a spay/neuter agreement.
Effective July 1, 2020, the price of our remaining pet/companion puppies, regardless of sex or color, is $2,500. A deposit of $500.00 is required to hold/reserve a puppy for you from a specific litter/breeding. The remaining balance of payment is due upon pick up in Cash ONLY. Sorry personal checks are NOT accepted for final payment. Deposits are Non-Refundable but are transferable to a comparable litter within 2 years of deposit.
If it is necessary for us to hold your puppy past the 8-week mark, a $10 a day fee will be charged, including any additional veterinarian costs and is due at the time of their requested pick up.
All puppies are cute. However, we ask that you not get your heart set on any particular puppy when looking at photos or when you visit. Puppies go thru changes each and every day. We don’t even choose our own pups until sometime during the 7th week.
We will select the pup we feel is best suited for you. If we feel there is more than one that would suit you, only then a choice would be given to you.
All puppies are vet checked, vaccinated, wormed, and micro-chipped before leaving our home. You will receive a Puppy Packet with a Health Record from my vet, American Kennel Club registration, microchip registration, a copy of our pet puppy sales contract, a small amount of food and treats they are currently using, a toy, reading materials, and lifetime support or advice should you want/need it.
We enjoy staying connected to our new puppy parents throughout their lives and encourage you to share special/fun/silly moments of you and your new family member. You may share them on our Facebook page yourselves if you wish, or privately with us via email.
We will take back ANY of our puppies/dogs at any time in their life. We require that if you are no longer able to care for the puppy/dog FOR ANY REASON, you notify us immediately and return them to us as soon as possible, no questions asked!
There are NO Puppies available at this time. We are taking applications for our waitlist, however, at this time it is quite long. If you are interested in a puppy from us at any time in the near future, please fill out an application ASAP and include dates in which you would be prepared for a puppy.

** Retired Adults **
Our girls normally retire at the 6+ age range and are placed with a spay contract stating the new owner will have them spayed within one month of taking them home. Arrangements can be made for us to spay prior to pick up however it will add to the cost based on the price of the spay as well as the length of time until they are ready to leave us in order to recover from surgery. With a spay contract in place, our retiring girls cost anywhere from $1,800 – $2,500 depending on the girl. Please fill out a puppy application and note that you are interested in a retiring Labrador, after reviewing applications we will schedule a meeting to better understand if any of our girls would fit well into your home. At this time we have no plans to retire any of our boys outside of our home.
We do have a Few Girls Retiring — applications & a fenced yard is required for all retirees.
