Sire: Josiah (Joey) is a 70-pound yellow Lab who has a muscular lean body and very calm personality. He also is known to throw gorgeous pups with his gentle demeanor. He loves to hunt and has a casual, but effective hunting style. He works the field with little effort and no wasted motion, then when he hits scent, he zeroes in on the bird, and starts to slow down stalking in a cat-like fashion, until he locks up on point. He also has one of the most intense staunch point that we have seen. He passed the APLA CPR test without having to be WHOA trained.

As a young dog he was hunted on South Dakota birds, "WOW" was that an experience behind such a top quality pointing Lab like Josiah.  He is a great mixture of both pointing Lab and field trial pedigrees.  His strong pointing traits come from the four Grand Master Pointing Retrievers in his background (Eli’s Blackjack Tori SH, Sir Mighty Eli MH, Blackwater Lexus, & Grits of Blackforest) and his intense retrieving drive comes from the five FC in his pedigree (FC AFC Hilltops Hayseed, FC AFC Black Gold Kate’s Rascal, CFC CAFC FC AFC Jazztime, FC AFC Blackwater Bart II, FC Red Oak Casey).  He is a true blend of the best of both worlds.  

Dam: Tal was born at Red Label Labs in Corsica, South Dakota on June 8, 2016 as a result of a breeding between CPR High Calibers High Flyin Mac Daddy CGS x CPR Red Label’s Triple Shot Bailey. Tal is a 56-pound dark chocolate Labrador Retriever who is very friendly and loving.  She is an extroverted, curious, confident and athletic female chocolate Lab with a very dark chocolate coat. Her gentle nature and athletic body, complement his slender athletic figure. Tal has a love of water and an intense natural retrieve. She also has a nice natural close working quartering style. Her strongest traits are her outgoing and friendly personality, he gorgeous appearance and her natural hunting style.

Litter Description: With the combination between Joey and Tal, we are expecting black puppies who will weigh 50-70 pounds. They will likely be slender, athletic and very affectionate. They will be easy housedogs with a even temperament, and will likely make exceptional upland dogs. They will also likely be good in the duck blind, but with their muscular and slender frames, they might need a little help keeping warm on cold mornings.

Litter Traits:

Ranking as great potential (scale of 1-10, with 10 being highest)

  1. Family dog = 8
  2. Upland dog = 9
  3. Waterfowl dog = 7
  4. Therapy dog = 7-8
