Puppies may leave us for their new homes after 8-weeks-of-age, not before. We usually have a waiting list for puppies of all colors and genders.
When will I get my puppy? Many of you write and call me with this reasonable-sounding question. Let me explain to everyone why I cannot answer it for 90% of you.
If you have been on the waiting list for 2 years or more and now want a puppy, you can have your choice of any puppy in any litter.
If you have been on the list for less than 2 years, particularly for less than a year, chances are you may or may not get your first choice. There are too many unknowns for me to answer your question, unknowns beyond my control:
* Will the female become pregnant?
*How many puppies will she have?
*How many girls, boys, yellows, blacks, chocolates?
*When these puppies are 8-weeks old, how many people on the list want a new puppy then?
I hope you can see that I cannot provide more than a guess about when you will want a puppy and will get a puppy.
I can provide transparency about the process. I notify all people on the list when puppies arrive. I will ask you to tell me if you want any of the puppies, in 5 days or so. I line up the dates-of-deposit and assign the puppies by color and gender. If I am not sure, I call you.
Some of you want only males or females, only yellows or chocolates, or blacks. A lot of you are flexible. You have to tell me if you want that yellow boy when you told me originally you preferred a black girl. That’s okay. My goal is to get you a puppy you love and to make sure every puppy has a loving home.
I hope this clarifies why I cannot answer the question you most want to ask. If I could, I would.

Hawaii does not have enough responsible breeders of Labrador retrievers (and many other breeds). I am happy to help any of my puppy buyers, who may want to breed, with several important conditions.
All puppies are put on the AKC Limited Register, which means your dog is fully registered, but no offspring of your dog can be registered with the AKC until I give you Full Registration.
Your dog may have Full Registration, once you meet the requirements for responsible breeding. Your dog must have OFA HIP and Elbow certification at or after 12-months-of-age. Your vet can explain what that certification requires.
If you do not intend to breed, the kind of AKC registration has no effect on you or your dog.
