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

Marcia retired on May 25, 2016 and we now plan to resume puppy rearing  starting with the Ten x AD litter!. 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 are getting 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.


Shelby has been bred to Tru! Pups whelped in the afternoon of June 14, 2017! {Puppies confirmed by ultrasound and  due June 16, 2017}. This is 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.


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 will be two in August and will be having her clearances done so a breeding with her will probably take place in the late winter or early spring!

In the meantime our boys are still breeding and we assist clients in obtaining a puppy in that way. Litters currently on the ground or soon to be whelped are listed below. Call us if you have any questions.

If you are interested in buying a puppy, please read our Letter to Prospective Buyers.

We offer a twenty-seven month guarantee on hips and eyes:

NOTE: The guarantee below has been changed a bit and we will get it changed soon. Call if you have questions or concerns on the guarantee ( 5/23/2016).

 A $200 deposit is usually required for a firm reservation.

Zoey has the HR and SH titles and has hip, elbow and eye clearances as well. Zoey is an outstanding gun dog including upland hunting. While this is not a repeat breeding she has been bred to Tru’s son Ten on two occasions producing very nice pups. We think that this breeding will produce some nice pups for The Home and The Field. The litter pedigree can be viewed by clicking on http://www.gooddoginfo.com/gdc/asp/viewpedigree.asp?DogNo=112143 . Call Devon to reserve a pup or discuss the breeding. All pups sold!

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

4. 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. Reservations being accepted.

5. 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 .
