Puppies must be picked up at Deep Run Farm in Goldvein Virginia.
Airline shipping for puppies continues to provide challenges, so for the safety of your new puppy please plan to come to pick him or her up in person.
We are grateful for your interest in a Deep Run Farm. Do not hesitate to call 540-752-4888 if we can be of assistance.


Our Labrador puppies are bred to give you the best possible Labrador pup that money can buy. If you want a hunt or field test dog, hunter/companion dog, obedience, agility, search and rescue dog, that can be your special friend and companion, a Deep Run puppy will be just right for you.


Read our commentary about responsible breeding


Our puppies are bred to provide you with a pup free of genetic defects, pleasing in appearance, and intelligent with a good attitude for learning. To the best of our knowledge, our breeding stock is free of common hereditary defects such as hip and elbow dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, central retinal atrophy, cataracts, and thyroid disease as well as Exercise Induced Collapse, Centronuclear Myopathy, Retinal Dysplasia and Oculoskeletal Dysplasia.

When genetic tests are available for hereditary diseases, we usually have our dogs tested by an approved laboratory.

DDC Veterinary: DNA Services for Animals- Offers DNA tests for canine and equine species. Services include parentage, DNA genotyping, DNA banking, disease screening, and coat color prediction.

We now know that some of these diseases, previously perceived as hereditary, are influenced more by rearing, feeding, and neutering programs (See article Study Shines Spotlight On Neutering) than previously thought. Also a Great Health Article. We use the most current guidelines for nutrition and environment to give our pups the best possible start. We provide you with essential information on nutrition, body scoring and health care so you can take over when you get your puppy to provide an optimum environment.

We have been breeding Labradors for twenty years at this location, over 40 years in all and have faith in our breeding program, because it is backed by experience, education, and application.

"May we always have a young one full of promise to admit us to those places of wonderment only permissible while in the company of a Labrador" - Gene Hill from the epilogue of Richard's History of the Labrador.

A Dog's Life at Deep Run Farm


  • About the parents
    • All breeding stock have OFA certified hips (excellent or good) and OFA certified elbows. A Veterinary Ophthalmologist certifies eyes free of hereditary disease. See our FAQs for information about OFA, CERF and PennHIP.
    • Sires are always titled dogs with top quality pedigrees.
    • Dams are working retrievers, titled, or in training for a title.

  • About the puppies
    • Puppies are born and raised in our home and are well socialized from day one.
    • Dewclaws are removed & pups are wormed and vaccinated.
    • To activate your puppy's microchip, go to activate the chip
    • Puppies are introduced to crate training, collar, leash, and basic obedience. We also introduce them to pigeons and water (weather permitting) before they leave.
    • Puppies have 24-hour canine medical attention from Phyllis, the resident veterinarian.
    • See the Letters and Photos from satisfied puppy owners.



    • See our Scrapbook - Cherished photos from our customers and Deep Run.
    • Most puppies are sold before they are old enough to leave, so we recommend a deposit as soon as you decide on a litter. If you come to pick up your pup and don't find him or her suitable, your deposit will be immediately refunded or transferred to another litter.

    • We feel we cannot safely ship puppies unaccompanied in the current climate of the pandemic. If you are willing to fly in to pick up your puppy and use a carry on pet carrier to return home with your puppy, that will work.
      In general, however, we prefer for you to pick up your puppy.



    • If you decide you want one of our puppies, please see our Puppy Adoption Questionnaire so that we can help you select a puppy to suit your lifestyle.

    • Credit cards are accepted for all transactions. (MC, VISA, AMEX)
      A 5% processing fee will be added to the invoice if using a credit card. We also accept cash and checks.

    • Please visit the Midwest Crates website for excellent tips on purchasing the proper size of crate for your new puppy or current pet, as well as some guidelines for proper crate training.
      A crate trained puppy is calm and comfortable in his own crate. Consider it a haven, not a jail.

Blizzard
English Lab
(click for large picture)


Blizzard is a handsome 80 pound English yellow male labrador. I kept Blizzard and his litter sister Deep Run Shandy from a litter that I bred because I loved their charming personalities, typey English Labrador looks, and their happy approach to daily life. They both enjoyed their puppy training and love to swim, retrieve, and learn new things.
Blizzard finished his Junior Hunter Title in one weekend of hunt tests, with four consecutive passes. He has several conformation wins at AKC shows, but the interruption in shows caused by the pandemic ended his show career. He enjoyed being home so much I simply decided he should stay here at Deep Run.
His superior good looks, good health, and happy personality make him a joy to have at the kennel.
He is a very healthy dog, and has all his health clearances as well as his CHIC (Canine Health Information Center) certification. See a copy of Blizzard's OFA files.
