Meet Our Dogs
Palm & Paradise Labs
You will see a theme with all our dog’s names. Jordan is a Texan, and we have named our dogs after random Texas memories. Texas holds a special place in our families hearts.
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and overall the creatures that move along the ground.” We don’t take this honor for granted.
All Labs used in our breeding are:
- Certified by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals).
- Cleared from inheritable eye disorders by a licensed Vet of Ophthalmology
- Registered by CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation).
We conduct DNA tests to ensure our dogs are not affected by genetic issues such as:
- Progressive Retinal Atrophy
- Exercised Induced Collapse
- Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis
- Centronuclear Myopathy
- And do not carry the “dilute” color gene
Our dogs and their lineage carry accomplished titles in Conformation, Field Work, Service Dogs, AKC Obedience, and reliable companion dogs. We register our dogs with the AKC (American Kennel Club).
Meet Our Dogs
TruPride’s Tesa Two Step
Tesa is a sweet girl who is a natural land retriever. She lives to play ball! She loves to run alongside a bike, learn anything for a treat, and to sunbathe. Tesa has been prancing while heeling since she was 5 months old and quickly accomplished her AKC CGC. We are continuing to work with Tesa towards her AKC Obedience Titles. She was the most peaceful puppy to raise. If the other dogs are up to no good, Tesa is far from their shenanigans. She has a quiet nature and loves being around the family. We nicknamed her “mother hen” because she loves being a mama, and we even use her with young dogs in training to help teach them manners.
TruPride’s Brenham Blue Bell
Brenham is a loyal girl who wants to work and please. She loves to swim and jumps into the pool any chance she gets. She is adventurous, vibrant, and extremely trainable. Brenham has a working dog mentality, and we are actively training for hunting titles. Brenham is an involved mother with her pups, and it’s incredible to see her in that element. Everything Brenham does has a level of intensity to it. She brings a presence to the mundane.
TruPride’s Rubi Red Rhinestone
Rubi is Jordan’s sweetheart. She stole his heart and then dug up his entire yard! Now that puppyhood is over, Rubi is our perfect angel. She has a chill personality but is as cute as can be. Rubi loves to carry around stuffed animals in her mouth and has never shredded one of them. She is a space giver, not a space taker. She’s not excessive; she’s elegant. She’s up to try anything, but you will know how she feels about it by her demeanor! She is a natural swimmer, and we will catch her randomly swimming laps in the pool, entertaining herself.
JRL TruPride’s Remember the Alamo
We are so thankful to have Alamo all the way from Portland, Oregon. We were searching for the perfect chocolate male and are so grateful that Mary Little of JRL Labradors entrusted us with him. From the moment Jordan picked him up from the airport, Alamo has been taking that extra moment to stop and soak it all in. Alamo is a sweet, handsome boy and stops traffic with his stunning looks. People can’t help but ask about him when in Downtown St Pete. He is the son of Cyrus, the 2016 Westminster Breed Champion and the 2018 Potomac Labrador Specialty Best of Opposite Winner (this is the largest Labrador show in the world with over 1,500 Labs) which is why we can brag all about Alamo’s attractive self! His gentle nature is delicate with my girls, playful with all animals, and loves the outdoors.
