from the finest pedigree lines available. They are carefully
selected for temperament, conformation and intelligence. We
keep our breeding stock free from hereditary problems. Each
lab at Bear Creek has certified hips, elbows and eyes. Our
puppies are sold with a 26 month hip and eye guarantee.
Our puppies are
highly socialized so that they will be ready for placement
with their new owners. All puppies have their dewclaws removed,
are wormed and received their first shot. Our puppies have
grown up to become wonderful family companions, bird and hunt
test competitors, gun dogs, obedience winners and K9 narcotic
dogs. You can purchase your Bear Creek puppy with confidence.
