From the very first day I spoke to Heartland Quality Labradors, I knew that our experience would be amazing. Great communication and a kind and generous owner.
Our pup is 6 months old now and is the most precious loving dog we have ever had. His personality is calm and joyful. He is beautiful, obedient, and loving. I can’t say enough about how very grateful we are to have found Heartland Quality Labs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
I think HQL has the best looking, best mannered, healthiest Labradors around . We got our first puppy Jack in 2012 and my adult son just got his first puppy from them this weekend. He said he has a great disposition, stays by his side and follows him everywhere after one day.
Shannon does a great job breeding these dogs and has kept a really good clean bloodline. She treats them as part of the family so when you get them they are ready and used to social interaction. I can not say enough good things about Shannon or her Labradors
What a wonderful place! The dogs are beautiful and so well loved by the owners of Heartland Labs. You can tell they put their whole heart into caring for these beautiful animals. If you are looking for an amazing place to find a Lab, this is the place!
I have had a very bad experience with the breeder. I bought a female from them 7 years ago, and from early on she has had nothing but health problems. I noticed the mother is no longer one of the females being bred. She has hot spots and allergies every summer to where she is raw. Her mother was a chocolate female and when I saw her she was blotchy and had bald patches. I came back from vacation and had a change of heart. She told me she would keep my deposit, even though she would have had no problem selling her. I am still accruing vet bills 7 years later with my dog’s allergies
Our young Tucker is just 15 months old and was diagnosed with a soft tissue sarcoma in the eye area at 13 months that has since metastasized to the lungs. The vets have told us that this is genetic because he is so young. We contacted Heartlands Quality Labrador Retrievers to make them aware of this as they may not want to cross the same parents again. Their hearts went out to us but did not seem too concerned about this information. I felt this could be useful to future buyers. His father is Chase and mother is Abby.
I would never give back Tucker because the moment we picked him up he became part of our family. We were not looking for anything just relaying information.
These folks refused to sell me a pup that I had a $500 deposit toward. Shannon told me she ” wanted to keep him ” ” had been offered twice as much” Broke our hearts. We had flown all the way from Houston to visit Jake at 6 weeks old. I would not trust them a bit. Make sure you see the “barn” where dogs are kept. There’s a reason her dogs are so cheap. Well below all ” reputable breeders” The old saying “There is always someone willing to sell something worse for less” I’m not sure the cheapest pet adoption is a good deal. It wasn’t for me. The photo of pup above is a picture of Jake, who was supposed to be ours.
