Hello, happy summer...
We have an AVAILABLE YELLOW MALE and BLACK FEMALE out of Octavia and Donaghy: this cross repeats a breeding from two years ago that produced lovely dogs, and we are equally pleased with this second iteration of the pairing.
Through the years we have selected our adults for health, soundness, temperament, and conformation: Donaghy and Octavia very much represent the ideal Lab from the Windancing lineage. Both are health tested for orthopedic and genetic soundness and wonderful ambassadors of this lovely breed of dog.
The pups in this litter are ready for adoption by their new families mid-August. All of our puppies are guaranteed by a two year written warranty on hip, elbow, and eye health; raised in a clean, indoor/climate-controlled environment; socialized daily; and administered all appropriate medical protocols (at least three de-wormings and initial vaccines).
At pickup they'll go home with pre-paid AKC registration; a documentation portfolio including pedigrees, care guidelines, and health records; and, a care kit of sundries including a week's worth of quality kibble to ease the transition.
While our Labs have done well through the years in the field, service, and show arenas, first and foremost we are looking for family placements for our pups in which they'll be loved as integral members of the household. If you are interested in more details regarding this litter or have any questions regarding adoption, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks again for your consideration of our Labs.
Have the loveliest of summers,
Eve & Christopher Farrell
Hi, thanks for visiting us.
We are pleased to announce an imminent litter of Windancing's Selkie x Windancing's Wellington of Loblolly. The pups arrive the first week of May to be ready for their new homes the first week of July. While we have several reservations for pups already, the possibility exists that we will have a few available, so if you are interested in bringing a Loblolly Lab into the family this year, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com to be put on the waiting list.
While Labs from our lines have done well through the years in show, hunting, and service domains, first and foremost we are looking for conscientious families to provide lifelong love and care for these wonderful dogs. All of our pups are warranted by a two written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health. While with us the first eight weeks of their lives, they receive daily handling/socialization and all requisite medical protocols to ensure they get a healthy start. We send them home with prepaid AKC registration, a portfolio and pedigree, health records, and care instructions specific to the needs of the breed.
We are located approx 40 minutes southeast of Nashville.
Thanks again for the consideration of your time.

Hello, and thank you for visiting Loblolly. We are proud to offer currently a beautiful and personable daughter of Tonto and Maeby. For details regarding her adoption, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Hello. Thank you for your interest in our Labradors...
We currently have a few puppies available for family placements. Pictured below, they are of Donaghy x Jubal and Tonto x Octavia, respectively, with one further puppy who is a granddaughter of Timber x Pipa. Additional information regarding adoption can be found below these pictures. To speak with us directly for details about one of these puppies, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
All of our puppies are offered with a two year written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health. Our parent dogs are screened for orthopedic and genetic health and represent a long lineage of healthy, robust Labs with beauty, intelligence, and affection.
We raise our puppies in an indoor, climate-controlled environment, actively socialize them, and administer all requisite de-wormings and the initial round of vaccines. At pick up we send them home with prepaid AKC registration, a care kit, portfolio, health documentation, and a week's supply of quality kibble.
Our family has cultivated the Windancing line for 35 years now, and while we are proud that our Labs have performed well in the field, ring, and work arenas, first and foremost we are looking for family homes for our puppies where they'll be valued and loved as both individuals and representatives of a great breed of dog. (If you have interests for a dog beyond this most basic and important function, please let us know, as occasionally we have puppies whose temperaments are well-suited for occupations beyond the couch and yard :)
We are glad to provide more details about any and/or all of these puppies and answer any questions that you have.
We are located in Middle TN in the greater Nashville area.
Thanks again for visiting us...

You got stuff this holiday. But, what you really wanted was a puppy...
Hello, and thanks for visiting us...
While we do not encourage knee-jerk puppy buying, if you've been contemplating adding a Lab to the family for quite some time and have done the research to establish what a quality breeding program looks like, we'd love to welcome you into our Loblolly family.
We are happy to offer two litters this winter season: Jubal x Donaghy (yellow puppies) and Octavia x Tonto (yellows and blacks).
The pictures below are current as of 01.04.2019 and depict our litter out of Donaghy and Jubal. We still have availability for one yellow female and one yellow male, ready for adoption mid-January. For more details regarding this litter, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
The next set of pictures show our litter out of Octavia and Tonto, also available mid-January for their new homes (#blessed but busy :) We have 2 black females and a black male available. Please scroll to the blog post directly below these pictures for more details.
Thank you for your interest in Loblolly Labradors...
We are very grateful for two litters this winter season:
Donaghy x Jubal (yellow puppies) and
Octavia x Tonto (blacks and yellows), respectively.
Please visit our Males & Females pages to view pictures of all four parents and/or view the slideshow below.
The puppies from both litters will be ready for their new homes mid-January.
Our parents are screened for orthopedic and genetic health, and represent my family's efforts of over 35 years to ethically produce beautiful Labradors that are healthy, intelligent, and companionable. We stand by the quality of our puppies with a two year written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health, and offer ongoing support to all of our Loblolly families. Our pups are raised indoors in a climate, controlled environment and receive all requisite medical care (quality nutrition, 3 de-wormings, and the first round of vaccines), plus daily socialization to ensure that they come to your family confident and happy. Through the years, our Labradors have been successfully trained for hunt, obedience, and therapy, but first and foremost, they are family dogs.
If all of this sounds like what you are looking for, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com or call 901-338-4321 for further details regarding availability and adoption.
The pictures below show Donaghy & Jubal (parents of the all yellow litter), Octavia & Tonto (parents of yellow and black litter), and puppies from previous litters and reflect what you can expect from a Loblolly puppy.
Thanks again for visiting us...
Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hello, and thank you for visiting Loblolly.
UPDATE: NOVEMBER 2018... Thanks to all of the loving folks willing to bring Yoko into their families. She has been placed in her new home :)
We are proud to offer for adoption to a loving and conscientious family, a young female just a bit over a year old. Yoko is a lovely dog-- healthy, affectionate, intelligent, and beautiful. As she is a few inches over conformation standards for the show ring, we've decided not to incorporate her into our breeding program, but we do so reluctantly because of her many outstanding qualities and because we love her.
We would like her, however, to find a place in a family's home and heart where she will get the lavish individual attention that she very much deserves. She is a very gentle dog, people-oriented and eager to be a part of human activity.
Please contact us for more details regarding her adoption. Loblollylabradors@gmail.com
We are located about 35 min southeast of Nashville, TN.
Thanks for your interest in our Labs.

Pipa is an eight year old Lab female with a loving, docile temperament. We are seeking a family for her to provide individual attention and care in her retirement. See below for more details.
Pipa is a lovely, affectionate, and gentle girl, on whom we'd like a special family to lavish individual devotion and care. She came to us two years ago from another kennel that was downsizing, and while we love her very much and appreciate the excellent genes that she brought to our program, she deserves now to be the center of attention and not just one of a big family. At eight years, she is in excellent health and runs about the yard playing with all the others, but she is also a mature adult, as prone to lying around, as she is activity. She has been on monthly heartworm and flea prevention, and requires no special dietary protocol, although we like to give her salmon oil and brewers yeast to keep her coat nice. She eats three cups a day of quality kibble.
While Pipa behaves in the house, she has not lived her life as a house dog, so we would recommend crating at night initially until she got used to the routine of living indoors or an outside kennel area for when you were away. She is intelligent as Labs are, and will learn quickly your expectations for her.
If you are interested in providing Pipa with a loving home, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com.
Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in our Labradors.
We have had a busy spring :) and currently have puppies available from two litters: out of Selkie and Donaghy, we have one yellow male still available. Out of Jubal and Donaghy, we have two yellow females.
Health, disposition, intelligence, and conformation are the guiding standards of our breeding program. We offer over thirty years of experience in producing high quality Labradors that function in all the pursuits typical of a well-bred Lab: hunt, show, obedience, therapy, and most importantly, family member. All of our puppies come with a two year, written guarantee for hip, elbow, and eye health; pre-paid AKC registration; the suite of appropriate medical protocols including 3 de-wormings and the initial round of vaccinations; a care kit including a week's supply of high quality kibble and sundries to ease the transition; and, daily socialization, so that they come to you confident and people-oriented. Our puppies are raised in a clean, indoor environment. Our adults are loved and well-cared for because they are our family.
If interested in adopting a puppy from one of these litters, please first spend some time browsing our website to understand who we and our Labs are. Visit our FAQ's page for general information on adoption, and please scroll through previous posts on this blog page. To speak with me directly, please email LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com or call 901.338.4321.
Again, thank you very much for your interest in our Labs.
We are located in the countryside of Middle TN about 45 minutes SE of Nashville.

Hello, and welcome to Loblolly.
March 2018 Litters
Hi, and thank you for visiting Loblolly...
We are happy to announce the imminent arrival in late March of two litters of English Labradors: Donaghy x Jubal and Donaghy x Selkie, respectively. From the former pairing, we'll have classic yellow puppies, and from the latter, yellow and black puppies with the possibility of very light yellow to "white." We are currently taking reservations for each litter with a few individuals already spoken for.
Our puppies represent generations of sound, affable, and intelligent Labs that are easy on the eyes :) We strive to breed to standard as reflected by the Labrador Retriever parent club, while favoring the hallmarks of the English Labrador: blocky heads, short-coupled bodies, thick bone, and pleasing temperaments. Our puppies are raised indoors from birth in a clean, climate-controlled environment; receive 3 dewormings in regular intervals, appropriate puppy vaccines, and high-quality nutrition; and socialized on a daily basis so they go to their homes confident and people-oriented.
If you care for more details regarding the parents, the puppies, and/or the process of adoption, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com or via text/call 901-334-4321. (I am a teacher, so leave a message during daytime hours, and I'll get back to you asap.)
We are located approximately 45 minutes southeast of Nashville in the beautiful countryside of Tennessee!
Thank you again for your interest in our dogs.

My family got our first Labrador when I was eight. I wanted a cat. Despite my initial reluctance and deep desire for a feline, our first Labs-- Spike & Princess-- brought great happiness into our household and marked the beginning of my lifelong love for Labradors. Eventually I got my cat, but with 35 years of experience with this breed, I am grateful for the beauty and joy of my family's Labrador heritage, and thus, I dedicate this page to the very first ones of my childhood.
