At Snow Ridge Labradors we love, raise and share our lives with top quality Labrador Retrievers that conform to the AKC Breed Standard. We are breed preservationists and hobbyists that raise our Labs in a safe, loving environment with daily tlc and attention. They are first and foremost our beloved companions that are intelligent, gentle, self assured individuals that excel as family dogs, therapy and service dogs, emotional support companions, in the show ring, obedience and in the field as working hunters. Primarily they are the best friends we've ever had, and it shows on every Labrador grin that greets us daily.
Our Labradors are family companions first and foremost, however we do show in conformation & obedience as time merits. We are developing young emotional support and therapy dogs who are passing their certifications at a very young age. Our Labradors are not kennel kept dogs. They are members of the family and enjoy the benefit of a two-acre fenced yard on our six acre farm, hanging out on the porch or in the house, and a good game or two of ball, walks and retrieving at the local pond. Our lives revolve around our dogs and the joy that they bring into our lives each and every day.
Our Labradors are kind, gentle, laid back characters with the intelligence that allows them to excel in what ever endeavor is asked of them...as companions, show and hunting dogs, therapy and emotional support dogs that provide years of joy and happiness to their owners. We diligently research bloodlines for temperament, soundness, intelligence, trainability, and the laid back gentle qualities that make our Labradors such perfect ambassadors of the breed...anywhere they go. They are beautiful, easy to live with, funny and unique...we are lucky to be owned by such a jolly comics.
Maddie Mae "Niall's Stockingstuffer at Snow Ridge" is our beautiful young lady from Niall's Labradors in California. Thank you Kaytlynn Howden for entrusting us with our beloved girl. Maddie is a daughter of AKC GCH Anguk Nauk (Anguiano). She is a gentle, intutive, laid back young lady who has been the perfect puppy in every way. When Maddie arrived she decided that she was the caretaker and best friend of my dear 16 year old Bulldog Pima. Maddie cleaned the folds on her face, kindly curled up with her, and worried when old Pima would totter to her food bowl...eagerly, but elderly. When Pima passed away on her doggie bed on Memorial Day 2018 I found Maddie curled up around her...ever the best friend. She is special indeed.
Kona Coffee "Niall's Who Gibbs a Ship" is our beautiful black girl who is a half sister to our Maddie. Her father AKC GCH Mar-Moye Special Agent Gibbs is one of our favorite Labs of all time. Kona is an absolute gentle character who enjoys pilfering through the laundry to find that particular stinky sock she can add to her stash of goodies that she hides in her crate. She is an incredibly smart girl with a gentle, sweet and funny personality. Looking forward to introducing Kona into the show ring in 2020. She is a gorgeous girl and we are so happy to have added her to the family.
AKC Champion Pointed Guinness "Cannon Ridge Summertime Gallivant to Snow Ridge and Tampa Bay" has grown into such a handsome, showy boy. He loves to show and really turns on the charm in the ring. Around the farm he is known as the "afghan" since he would prefer to be draped over your lap. We co-own him with our good friend Linda Carroll of Cannon Ridge Labradors. Many thanks to the two Lindas (Cannon Ridge & Tampa Bay Labradors) for entrusting us with this charming boy. Guinness is a son of AKC Bronze GCH/CH Lakeside Memoir of Gallivant "Memo" and AKC Ch. Tampa Bay Allenie Cannon Ridge Surf the Endless Summer "Summer". Stay tuned for more adventures as Guinness grows up. We are so thrilled to have this gentle funny boy as part of the family. He is a total comic with a kind spirit who enjoys a good rollick with his friends in the yard or at full gallop around the living room.
