Sharing Our Thoughts About Our Labs
The White Labrador Retrievers of Legacy-Labs is located 30 minutes from downtown Dallas. We have bred and raised rare Labrador Retrievers for 20 years. We consider ourselves boutique breeders; we usually have one litter at a time, and rarely two. Our mature dogs are family members, each and every one. They are raised on our 15 acre Arabian horse ranch, which is fenced in its entirety for the safety of our animals. We have ponds to swim in, birds to chase, and shade trees to relax under on those hot Texas Days. All our puppies are birthed in our home. As each baby is born, Russ and I fuss over each arrival with all the anticipated joy of grandparents. To put it very simply, we adore our dogs. We won’t bore you with the hours we spend trying to select attributes and distinctly unique positive qualities that we try so hard do isolate and duplicate. I love the diversity of genetic possibilities. While it is true that we are famous for the rare color of our Labs-there is so much more that goes into it. Everyone wants a beautiful stunning puppy that stops traffic. We go even further. We try to minimize negative behavior traits, for example, our line of pups and mature dogs are quieter and will rarely excessively bark. Many clients have looked at me like I am a little nuts when I say this, but time and time again, they will come back and say ”It’s True..my friends have even commented on how quiet our dog is.” Many people have asked me if intelligence and loyalty is genetic and the answer is easy, of course it is. We have all experienced or witnessed a neurotic or aggressive dog. This is the type of animal we all wish to avoid. Our Labs are known for their loyalty, intelligence and charisma-as well as their stunning great looks. This is an easy statement to say, but we can brag for hours on the accomplishments of our labs. We have “Storm”, who is a veteran search and rescue dog, we have several accomplished Master Hunters and we can state that Neiman Marcus has selected our dogs for their clients. We have sold to many celebrities and have been featured in “Just Labs” magazine and have been selected by D Magazine as “the place to purchase a Labrador Retriever”. These are all great accomplishments, but the best compliment we ever receive are our heartfelt letters, Christmas Cards and emails from our families that just have to let us know how their dog is unique and truly the best dog ever. We smile because we know, they are our treasures and they are our family members too. We completely understand.
I have been asked by many –“How did you get started” I believe we are born with gifts and passion. My passion for as long as I can remember has been animals. In addition to our rare Labs, we also isolate unusual genetic qualities of our Arabian Horses. These two passions grew together over time. Horses are also exotic animals that just capture our imaginations and attentions. I have spent 20 years breeding rare Arabian Horses. It is because of the decades spent studying our animals that I see more than most when they look at the animal. I actually see what type of eye is most engaging, the shape of the eye, the type of expression that speaks to us. I can go on and on, but I believe you see what I mean.
Legacy-Labs was not created as a business venture. It was created out of a love for the animal. Russ is a CPA in Dallas and I own my own business in addition to Legacy-Labs. Some people might say that our pups are too pricey but we believe that through decades of breeding, we offer one of the best dogs available on the market. We feel they are priceless. The demand for our puppies has grown substantially over the years yet we refuse to mass produce. It is my favorite saying “Great dogs produce great pups” What this means is happy, healthy, mentally strong moms and dads produce great pups. It takes all our care and attention to keep all their needs fulfilled. I feel committed to each and every puppy, each and every family. We are committed to the physical, emotional and mental strength of each dog and pup at our facility. This is our commitment to you, as well as our pups.
At this time we have three males that are our main sires at Legacy-Labs. Our males do not stand at stud to the public at this time. Please remember we support Limited Registration.
For all of those that have asked about Max “Legacy Maximum Millionaire" he has retired and has a favorite tree he sleeps under these days. WE are proud to offer his daughters and sons that still carry on his fine tradition.

Bear is just as his name implies. He is a mammoth true white lab that stops traffic for all who see him. Bear is bright white and folks that haven’t seen him in person can’t believe how beautiful he is. Bear is a gentle giant. He weighs in between 95 pounds and 100 pounds and has all the intelligence and kindness that we could ever hope for. He is sired by Legacy’s Rodeo Romeo and is producing white lab pups of quality and dispositions that are too kind to be described. Bear walks with me every step of my day on the ranch and never leaves my side. His eyes are full of expression and complete unconditional love. When Bear greets visitors at the gate, his entire body wags..not just his tail. He possesses the uncanny ability to cock his head sideways and completely engage you with his eyes. I cant say enough about this boy. His mom is Pixie, who is retired now and shares the shade of the “big tree” with Max. Pixie is a Max daughter who has been a top producer for Legacy-Labs. Bear’s hips have been xrayed and cleared of hip Dysplasia
We are thrilled to introduce you to stunning BEVO. Bevo is a crimson RED Labrador Retriever that we are thrilled to be able to show you! His looks stop traffic along with his beautiful color. He has an outstanding pedigree and a loving intelligent personality that is sure to make him a superstar in our breeding program. Bevo has a quiet gentle nature about him, and I call him an old soul. He takes everything in stride and is not hyper or aggressive. He is definitely a lover. You can see in his expression that he is completely focused on pleasing you and seems happy just being by my side. Bevo’s mammoth head and coupled with his rich brown eyes just full of expression make this boy a show stopper. His hips have been cleared via x-ray. We are expecting our first all RED litters and are excited to be able to add this rare color to our beautiful breeding labs. Bevo has completed his OFA certification and was rated as OFA GOOD!

Legacy-Labs is proud to add DBLPLY'S WALK THE LINE BELLCOVE to our outstanding group of sires. Cash is Champagne in color, but has a strong line of "white" in his lineage, as he was born pure white. We have added a quick video to show you some pictures of him and his puppies so that you can see how lovely they are. The entire litter from Donna was is bright white, with huge beautiful heads. I absolutely love this kind , gentle, lion of a lab. He has the sweetest disposition,offering unconditional adoration to his family here at Legay-labs. He weighs in at a lean 95 pounds as he has taken his new job seriously-he patrols the 20 acres daily and swims with such power and speed that I have nick named him "Phelps". He is power and grace in motion.Cash is OFA "Good" and elbows "normal".This oustanding sire is serious about "champion pedigree", as Cash has 7 Champions in his first three generations!We have searched long and hard to find such a beautiful male, genetically strong, with a kind heart.We are extremely proud to offer his offspring to you. I promise- you wont be disappointed!
WE are very thrilled to introduce "Zeus" to Legacy Labs! Zeus is a powerhouse of a male that is 90 pounds! Look at his huge head and his deep black points. I think he is simply stunning! Zeus has a CHAMPION pedigree, that is impressive to anyone that knows Labs! He has 6 Champions in the first 3 generations! I love Zeus's laid back attitude. He is definitely a "lover -not a fighter" . When he bounces thru the fields and pastures at Legacy..you simply can't keep your eyes off him.An outstanding male in every category! We are so very blessed to have such a wonderful gorgeous male to lead us into the future!
