Welcome: BFR Puppies,” Quality for the Home and Field”

Marcia retired on May 25, 2016 and we have now resumed puppy rearing  starting with the Ten x AD litter and following that up with two litters from Shelby bred to Tru the second of which are going to homes now. We have always tried to produce a quality product and a couple of females that we had hoped would constitute that program just did not work out but now we have the ducks all lined up! Rather than breed just because we love doing it we had decided to wait until we are both available to do the job right and the females we have are what we want. That time is now!


Shelby was bred to Tru! Pups were whelped in the afternoon of June 14, 2017 and those pups are going to homes at the present time. This was a repeat breeding with pups from the first litter getting rave reviews from all owners. Check our Guys and Girls pages for complete info on these two fine yellow Labs. Litter pedigree can be viewed by clicking on  http://www.gooddoginfo.com/gdc/asp/viewpedigree.asp?DogNo=111836.

Shelby will be bred again a year from now but we have not decided who the stud dog will be! Stay tuned!


We have a very nice QAA female coming in for a breeding soon! Should be a great breeding! Stay tuned!


We may breed T this year but that will depend upon clearances and where she is at in her training! More than likely it will be Fall of 2017 before we breed T.

Bonnie just turned 2 on  August 8 and will be having her clearances done so a breeding with her will probably take place in the late winter or early spring!

This is a double repeat breeding which should produce nice dogs for the Home and the Field.

2. Ryan Eder (Wi) 847-833-5632. Black and yellow litter (Tru) whelped May 15, 2017. Ultrasound confirms pregnancy! Dam, Harper, is a smallish black female who excels in the upland. While this breeding should be nice in all ways it should be especially good for the upland hunter as Tru is also a very fine pheasant dog. Harper’s exuberance and ” Let’s gettum” attitude should be tempered by Tru’s rock solid steadiness. She has the Upland Gundog title in the UGA and tournament placements at an early age. Harper has had OFA prelims done with Hips Good and Elbows Normal. She is EIC/CNM/PRA and CERF Clear. Prelims were done just before she turned two. Her pedigree goes back to some very famous Labs and I will try to get it up soon. Call Ryan to reserve your pup. As of July 13 there are three pups available: a black male, a black female and a yellow female. All pups reserved.

3. Blindfaith Retrievers (Il) 217-474-7122. Yellow litter ( Tru) whelped June 14, 2017. Read all about Shelby and Tru on this website on The Guys and The Girls pages. This is a repeat breeding of Shelby’s first breeding last September. Pups from that breeding are doing very, very well. Two went to pet homes, one to a pet/occasional hunt home and six to hunting/competitive homes. all nine owners are very happy and two of those have been placed with pros where they are doing very well. We chose Tru as the sire because we thought his calm demeanor at the line would be a good compliment to Shelby’s ” Hey, just let me go, OK?” approach. From the reports we have received on the first litter it appears that it worked. Both Tru and Shelby are very good marking dogs, handle well and they are nice dogs! Pups are priced at $900 with a $200 deposit required to reserve your puppy. Your puppies pedigree can be viewed by clicking on http://www.gooddoginfo.com/gdc/asp/viewpedigree.asp?DogNo=111836 .
