My family got our very first Labrador when I was about 6 years old, a yellow girl that we all adored-Gracie. I’ll never forget the excitement of knowing we would have our very own puppy. My siblings and I would ask endlessly If we could go visit her, and our patient mom would always answer that we had to wait for dad to get off work. We’d count down the hours until he did, and to this day, I still remember those visits with our puppy as some of my happiest memories. And of course even more were made when she was home with us. 💕 A few years later she was joined by our first chocolate Lab, Elsie, and we had our first litter of pups shortly after. It was such a fun experience and we all fell in love! That pretty much sealed the deal for our family. Labs are just an essential part of life at this point. Having my own family now, there’s no other breed of dog I’d even consider. They’re truly the most beautiful, smart and gentle companion dogs for my own babies and I love that I get to share that with other families. When I’m not delivering puppies or vacuuming up dog hair you can find me homeschooling my little ones, gardening, wrangling goats, or working on some other farm project. Normally with a coffee in hand and a baby on my hip- my days are full and busy, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
While we primarily breed for family pets, it’s important to me that my dogs have championships in their lines. Show dogs are not only judged for their body & conformation against the Labrador breed standard, but also for temperament. And that’s our goal here- to raise not only stunning dogs, but healthy, well tempered ones that will become a part of your forever memories.
Since 2005 my Mom at Quail Meadow Labradors has been breeding some of the most high quality and beautiful dogs in the state of Florida and I truly have had the privilege of learning from one of the best. All of our babies are very loved and we do everything possible to give them the best chance at a long and healthy life. Thanks for taking the time to get to know us a little better!
