McNeil Labradors, located in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina is a small kennel and hobby breeder founded in 1993, consisting of well bred, quality, English lines. Breeding management is well-defined with emphasis on breed research and dedication toward improving, preserving, and protecting the Labrador Breed from indiscriminate and unethical breeding. My breeding goals and initiatives are based on producing puppies with outstanding genetic qualities of health, with kind, and loving temperaments. I strive to enhance and maintain a high degree of intelligence trainability for obedience and therapy, and overall versatility from show ring conformation to a day at the hunt. My dogs are loyal companions with wonderful temperaments. Through continuous work and progress, McNeil puppies provide a special gift to visually impaired as well as assistance through "service dog" organizations to children and adults with disabling conditions. McNeil puppies are currently participating in "Puppies Behind Bars" which provides constant social interaction, manners, and obedience training necessary to become a service dog. Puppies in prison programs also provide the unconditional love for inmates as well as teaching a skill that they can take back to the public sector - the ability to provide a gift of light in a world of darkness.
