Welcome to Lejonhud Labradors. We are responsible, family-oriented, hobby breeders with high quality female Labrador Retrievers who are our beloved pets. We generally have one or two litters every year, and breed for temperament, soundness, health, retrieving ability, and Labrador beauty. Our Girls join us in horseback riding, swimming, hiking, and other family activities, and each one has earned a Canine Good Citizenship title. Please meet our three generations of girls below.
NEWS!!! Willow has delivered a healthy litter of TEN chocolate puppies!
Please see our Litters page
McDerry's Grace of Lejonhud, CGC, WC ("Grace")
Grace is the current matriarch here at Lejonhud Labs. She's bold, smart, independent, and an excellent retriever. She loves to go out with the horses, and will soon be a great-grandmother again. We love our Gracie-doodle!
McDerry RubyJewel of Lejonhud, CGC, WC ("Ruby")
Ruby is Zach's dog, and she's as sweet as the summer day is long. She's gentle, playful and biddable. You'd have to look long and hard to find a nicer companion than The Rubester. Her sire was the number one show Labrador Retriever in Canada for two years.
Whipowil's Dream Gift to Lejonhud, CGC, WC ("Sapphire")
Sapphire, the pick of her litter, was Ian's ninth birthday present. Sapphire is champion sired and out of OFA Good and Excellent parents for generations, but she's moderately displastic, and has been spayed. Sapphire is very vocal and craves attention. Ian, now seventeen, loves her to pieces.
Lejonhud Aaralyn, CGC ("Aaralyn")
Aaralyn was the only pup in Grace's last litter, and her difficult birth resulted in damage to one of her hind feet. Nicole absolutely fell in love with her and vice versa, and Aaralyn goes everywhere with her. Aaralyn is gentle, sweet and quiet - until you show her anything that has to do with retrieving, and then she becomes a wild woman. She's a wonderful pet and excellent mother.
Lejonhud Bejeweled Cameo, CGC ("Cameo")
Beautiful Cameo is quiet, sweet, gentle, and playful. She and her buddy Willow are nearly joined at the hip. Cameo is Ruby's daughter and inherited her wonderful, biddable temperament.
We have tentative plans for a summer litter out of Cameo by OYY Sokokis Nicodemus, "Nic." Both parents have full clearances.
Lejonhud Chocolate Willowbark, CGC ("Willow")
Willow is athletic, bold, rough-and-tumble and active. Don't drop anything around her, or she'll be carrying it around in her mouth. She drives everyone else in the family crazy, but I adore her, and she has been devoted to me since she was five weeks old. She was my pick of Aaralyn's litter, and she is drop-dead, show-quality gorgeous.
Willow is currently bred to a champion chocolate Lab to produce fourth-generation Lejonhud Labradors at the end of March.
And, introducing our new boy, Pleasant River Diesel of Lejonhud! Diesel is 13 weeks old. Too bad he doesn't like kids - haha!
