Our four year old chocolate Labrador (Tallulah) had a litter of puppies at the beginning of September after mating with Tetley, our fox red Labrador. She’s had four boys and four girls and the theme of this year’s puppies are Marvel Comics. There’s a page set up for each of them (under the Puppies tab) and we’ll update their pages as they grow.
We’ve had litters before with our other Labradors. All three live at home with us and both Tallulah and Tetley can be seen with the puppies. Our previous litters are still available to view under the Puppies tab, listed by themed litter (example here – https://www.yorklabradors.com/billie/).
Our previous litters have sold within two days of being advertised for sale, so get in touch if you are interested in reserving one and tell us about your background. There’s a £200 deposit to secure them and then the balance of £1800 on collection.
Previously we have encouraged the new owners to come and choose their puppy and then we suggest (distance permitting) that people visit their puppy as often as they can during the 8 weeks they remain with us. We have a secure, private area with sheltered and heated outdoor space, so as long as social distancing is maintained at all times we hope that people can come see them. We weigh them every week, and we send regular pictures and video to their new owners. We have had previous litters during lockdown and some of the new owners didn’t meet their puppy til pick up day but we kept in touch via regular video call and lots of pics and video (if you want to speak to any of them about how this experience was, let us know and we can put you in touch).

We’ve kept in contact with lots of the new owners who send us pictures and keep us updated on their progress – see https://www.yorklabradors.com/2019/01/27/previouslitters/ and https://www.yorklabradors.com/2020/08/10/previous-litters-some-more-pictures/ for some pictures. We have loads of pictures of previous puppies that we can share, and are still in touch with many of the new owners. Two even have their own instagram account (search for Rufus the History Hound and Lady Luna The Labrador to see how they’ve grown from puppy into dogs!).
The puppies will be ready to go to new homes during the October half term holidays. We’ve written a post here about their time with us and the progress they make, as well as further info on what happens when you take them and what to expect: https://www.yorklabradors.com/2020/08/11/what-happens-when-you-collect-your-puppy/
