We have purchased 3 labs from Galen! We bought our white lab in 2009 who is now 13, happy and healthy. He’s brought so much joy to us over the years and has the most amazing temperament. We will always come to Galen.


Andrea Martinez

We purchased our chocolate lab from here in April of 2007. Our puppy passed away early this morning and I must say I don’t think we could have had a better dog. He was healthy, strong, good-tempered… loving beyond belief. Every vet or dog lover he came around always said how kind, gentle, and good looking of a dog he was. I’m so grateful to this breeder for helping us bring home our beloved family pet.

Bought a puppy there early October 2018. Went to the vet and learned the puppy tested positive for high counts of Giardia and Roundworm. These puppies are sick! I do not recommend.


Anne Cox

Puppy mill. Hip dysplasia and heart murmurs documented from previous puppy purchases. Not chipped, inadequate shelter , incomplete vaccination records ( per Bernalillo County Animal Control complaints). Stay far , far away from this ” breeder”.

Update: Yes – puppy mills have a lot of dogs – what may not be widely known is that “CoyzLabs” maintains a 2nd offsite kennel up in Springer, NM. The owner told me that when the females aren’t in season, he ships them up to Springer – when they’re in season, he breeds them there in Springer and just moves the pregnant female down to Albuquerque when she’s ready to whelp. That way – he only keeps the “pretty dogs” (the ones in the side kennels) and the puppies “on display” for the buyers that show up. You’re seeing the “show room” in Albuquerque…’re *not* seeing the warehouse.

BTW – we never did receive the AKC paperwork on the 2nd pup – never will.

We’ve had a “CoyzLabs” pup for 3 years now – and had no problems with the first pup. So – we bought a 2nd one about 4 months ago. First thing – pup came home with Giardia – which had to be treated, (*and* she had to be quarantined from our first dog.) Then – we waited for 4 months for AKC registration paperwork – and, only after contacting Galen every 2 weeks for the past 3 months, we found out that the “momma dog” (“Moon”) *isn’t even AKC registered*…!!!! So – we wound up paying $400 for an “AKC registered pup” that *CAN’T BE REGISTERED*!!!! And from the sounds of it – Galen has no intentions of registering the female – which means we can’t register (or “show”!!) this pup.

I *used* to defend Galen – “breeders” often get labeled as “puppy mills”, and that’s not always the case. But – Galen appears to be in this just for the money. He doesn’t really care about the breed or honoring his obligations to the people that purchase his pups. So – don’t deal with him – find another breeder.
