Just a bunch of pups to brighten your day

Where have all the puppies gone?

Here at Hero Labradors, we are constantly busy:  we have a kennel to run, property to maintain, dogs and puppies to breed, raise, and deliver, and a multitude of other things to keep us busy.  In the military, we call that mission creep--the things which must be done to function, but tend to sap strength away from the objective.

One of those things has been keeping track of our pups, once they have gone on to other things.  I'm going to rectify that as best I can, by making a simple list of the organizations we've donated pups to, and if they have a page for our pup, sharing that as well.

The pups will be listed by their Hero Labradors name, with their recipient organization name in parenthesis, to keep the confusion to a minimum.  (FYI, many recipients name their pups based on sponsorship, and so a pup we deliver may very well have it's call name changed, but it's Hero Labradors name will be forever on its pedigree, and THAT is unchangeable.)

So, here we go, in chronological order by litter:

  • Hero Labradors Polar Bear--remains with Hero Labradors as our stud and sire. 
  • Hero Labradors Wrinkles (Pete)--became a demonstration dog of Service tasks and capabilities for Dogs Helping Heroes in Jeffersonville, IN.
  • Hero Labradors Fuzzy Butt (Ramsey) is finishing up his training at Patriot PAWS in Rockwall, TX and will graduate soon!

  • Hero Labradors Ranger is in his forever home with a military family, where he is already learning tasks and will be a tremendous service and emotional support dog!
  • Hero Labradors Lord (Wilson) is in his forever home with a veteran, who was a Military Working Dog handler and will train him to meet his service needs.
  • Hero Labradors Brisket (Jasper) is with his puppy raiser art Smoky Mountain Labradors in Lenoir, Tennessee, and already stealing hearts (and treats, probably).
  • Hero Labradors Bowie is with K9sForWarriors in Ponte Vedra Florida, with his puppy raiser family.  He is the 4th pup they have raised!
Hero Labradors Belle is soon to be united with her forever home.

As I get more info or updates on these pups, I will try to maintain this page.
