...is to produce healthy, English-style Labrador Retrievers with wonderful temperaments to join your family!
Ciao Bella Retrievers
(Italien=Hello Beautiful Retrievers!)
We are a small breeder and only produce one litter of puppies per year. As responsible breeders we ensure that the parents of our puppies have appropriate health and genetic clearances, exhibit highly desirable temperaments, and have a championship bloodline.
We believe in providing our Labrador Retrievers a high quality of life by having them fully integrated into our family. They live in our home versus a "kennel" and love to play on our 28+ acre farm in Troutville, Virginia, adjacent to the Appalachian Trail. We stress bonding from the time the puppies are born. As such they will be raised in our home, well socialized, and engaged in diverse activities to promote their development in becoming the perfect addition to your family!
Puppies are only sold to approved homes and come with:
1. AKC registration papers
2. Special Vet check and health certificate
3. Proof of health clearances are provided upon request.
We pledge to support St. Francis Service Dogs of Roanoke, Virginia, with puppy donations from our litters to help people with disabilities.
We also pledge to support our community with free animal assisted activities and therapy in class room, nursing home, and hospital settings. We routinely support Carilion Hospital, Carilion Hospice, and Lewis Gayle Hospital with Pet Therapy visits.
