Sapelo Labradors is a small kennel located in western North Carolina. My goal in breeding is to produce sound, healthy Labs with calm, friendly temperaments. I show my dogs, and carefully plan each breeding with the intent of keeping one or more of the pups to show and possibly to add to my breeding program.
I have been guided in setting up my kennel and in selecting my dogs by Carol Heidl, Shannon Carlton, Kathy DeVito and Jenny Eppinga. They have all been generous in sharing their knowledge of Labs, showing and breeding with me. Jenny encouraged me to try showing and has introduced me to many wonderful Lab people. Carol and Shannon have shared two wonderful bitches with me and have been helpful with their advice and encouragement. Shannon and Kathy have helped me learn how to show my dogs and generously shared their knowledge of Labs. Thanks to all of these ladies for their generosity and friendship.
My kennel name, Sapelo, comes from the Georgia barrier island of that name, where I lived and worked for over 20 years. As a research scientist with the University of Georgia, I studied salt marsh and estuarine ecology. For information on Sapelo, click here. I got my first Labrador Retriever while on Sapelo, and raised 2 litters of puppies there. After a move to the main campus of UGA in Athens, GA, I decided that I wanted to breed quality Lab puppies as a hobby and retirement activity. Little did I know that I would soon be living with 9 dogs!
