Hello - we're ready to jump back into the puppy world after losing our 12 yr old English yellow lab last fall.
She was the perfect dog - except she had all kinds of joint issues starting with elbow dysplasia which appeared when she was a puppy. The breeder I used was recommended but obviously I am going to make a different choice this time after doing as much research as I can.
Endless Mountain has good search engine results but I've read some negative comments regarding them....
We live in the north west Philadelphia suburbs and a few hour drive is no problem - any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks for any help.

We have a 2 yr old from Endless Mountain and we just got another 6 mos old from Heartland Quality Labs in Ohio. We did purchase our 2nd lab from Endless Mountain but lost it from cochcidia and guardia and parvo. And did not go back to Endless Mountain. We now have our new puppy and this puppy came with absolutely none of the other health issues and he is wonderful.
Stick with going through some of the breeders on the Keystone LRC site. I am sure if some of the breeders don't have pups, they will be happy to refer you on to someone else. If you are going to go through the trouble of finding a breeder, at least find a reputable one.
Thanks for the replies - I'll start with the Keystone LRC site and go from there - I'll post when I make some progress....
Hi after suddenly losing one of my 12 year old rescues last summer and dealing with hurricane Sandy cleanup for a year, I added a much wanted lab puppy to our family in August. He is an absolutely gorgeous English cream lab from Mikoni White Labs in Alabama. The sweetest, nature, a big mush, and at 9 months and 90 lbs a a Monster Mutt as we call him.
Great in obedience , agility & retrieving. I highly recommend them. He was shipped up to NY which was a first for us, but worth all the hesitation.

For the most part, any breeder that markets "white" is not reputable. Sorry.
