Steelhart Labradors was founded by Jean Engelhart and Audry Steelman (2 very determined women). We met while researching pedigrees for dogs for our own breeding programs. We determined that we had common goals, and if we combined our efforts we could attain those goals in less time.
IAs we began our search, we came across Keepsake Labradors, Little River Labradors and Penara Labradors. The striking color and look of the fox red Labradors being bred by these breeders appealed to us. We set out looking for proven brood bitches to establish our breeding program.
In this process, we came across Avalon Labradors, and we purchased 4 brood bitches out of CH Avalon's Law & Order (Justice). Justice has one of the best pedigrees behind a show titled fox red Labrador. With our 4 Avalon girls, we plan to breed to outside stud dogs and strengthen the pedigrees behind the fox red Labradors.
Our puppies out of Keepsake Great Balls of Fire are the first product of our hard work, and with future breedings the future of Steelhart Labradors is looking bright.
Jean resides near Madison, Wisconsin, and Audry resides in southeastern Oklahoma. Steelhart is the kennel name used for the dogs that we co-own. At this time, all of our co-owned dogs reside in Oklahoma with Audry. Due to family circumstances, Jean has had to take a step back from running her own kennel and focus on her family. She is still involved in all other aspects of our kennel.
St. Louis is the halfway point between our homes, and we make arrangements to meet several times a year to deliver puppies to Wisconsin and other places along our route.
