Future Breedings and Puppies

In order to get the best quality labrador, you may need to wait a bit. Once you have found a breeder and the type of Labrador you like, you need to get on their waiting list and wait. You may need to get on a couple lists to insure a puppy. We are a small breeder, only having a couple litters a year, if that, and our lists are often full before the puppies are even born.  People who fit our criteria on placed on a list. The list is not in order of received but who makes the best puppy owner and where a puppy would fit best with its people. We have the right to refuse placements of puppies to anyone who does not fit our criteria . People who adopt a Spirithawk puppy or dog must feed a quality natural dog food or a raw and natural diet is preferred, follow our vaccine protocol and not neuter or spay until the puppy is done growing at about a year or later.

We sometimes have older pups or adults available to good homes. We hold on to a few, but sometimes they don't fit into our breeding plans and fit much better into good pet homes instead. Whatever their purpose in life, they are always wonderful family pets. Our dogs are placed in homes where they must become a family member and live inside/outside. We will not place puppies to people who will place their dogs in kennel runs or crates for long periods of time. Our puppies deserve the best quality homes and an enjoyable life, in return they will give years of loving devotion.  All of our pet puppies are placed  on a AKC limited registration.

We love our Kuranda Beds.  There are no other beds around that match their quality and durability. We highly recommend these wonderful and comfortable beds for all our labrador puppy people.

Make sure to check out the new Labrador Rescue group in Carmel, Ca.

After 28 years of being involved in lab rescue with another organization, I have decided to start my own group.  It's something I've always wanted to do, and I'm excited to announce that Monterey Bay Labrador Retriever Rescue is now a reality.  My new website is www.mbaylabrescue.org, and I hope you'll take the time to check it out, if you haven't already.  It was a lot of work, but so gratifying to be able to put it together just the way I wanted it.  I've learned so much over the years, and hope I have "built a better mousetrap" in terms of the ease with which we operate and how we interact with the many families looking to adopt a rescue lab.  Our new logo was designed by Carmel Valley's own renowned local artist, Will Bullas, and the website was created by Moxxy Marketing in Salinas… both Will and Moxxy are true dog loving professionals.  We are so very grateful for their amazing contributions for the labs.  I couldn't be more thrilled with the logo and with the website!!  

Of course, we are starting from scratch.  We will be doing a fundraiser in the spring for sure, but have had a few very nice donations from some of my dear friends (and my dear husband) to get us started.  As has always been the case, all of our donations go directly to the dogs….mostly for their vet bills.  We're so proud of all of our incredible local volunteers, who donate their time and love to these deserving dogs.  They are the ones that make this possible.

Our major need right now is funds to operate (always a need :-)), and foster homes for our labs.  We ask our fosters to take in a lab for a week or two at the most….and sometimes for only a few days if that's all the time they can give.  It's very rewarding watching a scared, needy dog gain confidence and move on to a loving new home.  I'd be happy to have one of our foster parents talk to anyone who is thinking of giving fostering a try.  It's a great thing for people who don't want to have a "full time" dog…..but would love some doggie love, without the commitment. And we love fosters who already have dogs of their own, as their dogs do a lot to help the foster dogs learn the ropes.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in fostering in the Monterey/Santa Cruz area, please let me know.

Very soon, we will be sending out an E-newsletter to announce Monterey Bay Lab Rescue, but I wanted you to be among the first to know.  

I would really really appreciate it if you could forward this email to all of your dog loving friends.  It takes time for a new website to be discovered, and labs needing to be rescued need to be rescued NOW.  The more people who know about us, the more dogs we can help.   I've already placed three labs through MBLRR, and currently have 3 more labs that have been owner surrendered to me (all from Santa Cruz) since the website launched just a couple of weeks ago.   I really appreciate your help in passing the word!!

And thank you for all the support you've shown me (and the labs) over the years.  It means a lot!!!
