Thank you to our dear friend Shelah Frey for showing Rogue to this amazing win!






Our sweet Rogue is an absolute dream to live with. He is sweet, mellow, gentle, and has an adorable sense of humor. He is everybody's "best friend." To know Rogue is to love him.

Rogue has a beautiful head with melting expression and amazing breed type. He has shown a ton of promise in the show ring with multiple specialty wins and placements. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this gorgeous young boy and his puppies!

Judy Heim, Vonnie and Jim Russell, and Lisa DaRoss of HySpire Labradors, thank you dearly for trusting us with this gorgeous, sweet boy! Thank you, Lisa Cruanas for breeding such a wonderful, classic labrador!
