Welcome to Our Lovable Labs, of Georgia. English Labrador Retriever Puppies for all purposes.

Breeders of high quality AKC Labrador Retriever Puppies (Lab Pups) in White, Ivory, Yellow, Red, Chocolate & Black.

 
Upcoming shipping dates:
  We will be shipping puppies next on November 3rd, 10th and 17th out of Greenville, SC(All dates are as needed, additional dates may be added if necessary, please ask.)  Please plan to receive your puppy on the date scheduled for the litter your puppy is from.  Please note that a puppy must be at least 8 weeks of age to leave here.
 
 
***A minimum of TWO puppies is required for us to make a special trip.  If there is only one puppy scheduled to ship on a particular date, that flight will be rescheduled to the next scheduled shipping date.
***  IF IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR US TO MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP FOR ONE PUPPY, THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL FEE OF $100.00 (to Greenville, SC) TO COVER THE GAS AND OUR TIME TO BRING THE PUPPY TO THE AIRPORT.
 
 
If you need shipping, please be flexible and plan to receive your puppy on one of these dates.  We live two and a half hours from the Atlanta Airport (in GOOD traffic) and 90 minutes from the Greenville, SC airport.  Going to the airport and making excess trips takes valuable time away from our family, dogs and puppies.  If you are unable to pick up your puppy yourself from the airport, you may have someone else pick him/her up for you, just let us know so we can add that person's name to the air waybill.  We thank you so much for your understanding and consideration in this matter.  Please note, that due to severe weather, flights may be canceled, or it may be too hot or too cold for a puppy to be flown, per the airline's regulations.  This is beyond our control, but your puppy's flight will be rescheduled as soon as possible.


Hey… been meaning to connect with you… Scooter’s been doing marvelous!! It was so much fun picking him up at the airport.... he bonded with Donn and me right off the bat!!  I came close to keeping his name Scooter because he was scooting around on his tummy playing with us… but.. I think his name is going to be ‘Zeke’… short for Ezekiel. Thanks again!! Okay, on his AKC papers… I would like to name him something like Our Lovable Labs Yellow Ezekiel??  All is well here, Thank you!!  Sheila

Info and Details about Shipping:

Which Airline?
We use several major airlines for shipping, but usually Delta.  The process is safe, simple, and cost effective.  The pup first obtains a health certificate from a vet.  On the day of travel, he/she is placed in a well-ventilated airline transport crate, and received by a special division of the airlines.  He/she is placed on board just minutes prior to departure, and will travel in a temperature controlled, pressurized area of the aircraft. (If it loses pressure, so do the passengers.) The pup will usually sleeps for most of the flight.
(We NEVER use sedatives. They are unnecessary and can be very dangerous!!)

Remember – Your pup never really knows that he/she is on an airplane, and he/she does not have a fear of flying.  The best part is that he/she can be in your arms in just a few short hours. This is usually less traumatic than traveling by car for many hours.  In all the years of shipping puppies, we have only had positive experiences.  No one has ever been disappointed with the particular puppy that they received, and everyone has arrived safe and sound.

Picking up your puppy at the airport
This part is the most fun!  Just simply show up at the cargo or baggage claim area, I will let you know in advance which for your particular airport.  (Don’t worry - your pup won’t come flying down the belt with all the suitcases.)  Show them your I.D. and they will give your pup to you.  Many families use this as the surprise introduction to their children or spouses.  Have a camera ready!  Other than water, there is nothing special you will need, it's a good idea to bring some bottled water with.  When you get to a grassy area, let him/her out for a bathroom break.  He/she shouldn't run off, and will probably stick right to your heels. Don’t worry if you forget a collar or leash, I'll have one for you attached to his/her crate (or in the airline packet).

For directions, flight status and other info, please either visit www.DeltaCargo.com or give them a call, (800) 352-2746.

Once the bathroom break is over, and you have someone with you, they may just hold your new puppy.  If you are alone however, please put the puppy back in the crate, to avoid getting into an accident!  It's also not a bad idea to bring some wet wipes and paper towels along, just in case......   You may want to bring some plastic bags to clean up after your pup, and so you have somewhere to put any soiled paper towels, etc.  (Grocery store bags work great for this!)

Then, when it's safe to do so, PLEASE give us a call so we know you have your new baby safely in your arms!!  We tend to worry if we don't hear from you.  Plus, we can't wait to hear how happy you are with your new little one!!  (763) 390-0539. 

COST
Shipping through the airlines is the best way to get your puppy shipped safe and sound.  The total cost of transporting your puppy starts at $350.00.  We now receive a discounted rate which we pass on to you, however to receive this discounted rate the puppies must fly prepaid so we will need to collect the entire amount up front.  This price INCLUDES your puppy's airfare, travel crate and health certificate.  This is the rate if we use Delta Airlines ONLY.  Should we need to use a different airline due to your receiving airport, the price will be slightly higher, please be aware of this.  NOTE:  The choice to use a different airline is ours, and would only be if Delta is UNABLE to get a puppy to an airport near you.  You may have to drive to a different airport, even if it's not the closest one to you!!

Break down of what is included:

  • The airfare on the airline that services your region.
  • Health Certificate. This saves you money, as it counts for the first vet visit!  (In many cases, the first vet visit can run $100 to $150 dollars).
  • Airline transport crate. This can be used as a house breaking crate for a short time.
Protect your baby by having him/her microchipped!
You may also have your new baby microchipped for an additional $55 per puppy, including his/her lifetime registration in the National Database.  Should your baby ever become lost or stolen, the chance of him/her being returned safely home to you are greatly increased!  Many lost dogs end up in shelters, and if not found and reclaimed, may be adopted out to someone else, or put to sleep.

Disclaimer: While every puppy we have ever shipped has arrived perfectly, we cannot be held responsible once the puppy is dropped off at the airport.  Insurance is available from the airlines, for an additional charge, if desired.  However, they've never lost one of our puppies!!

Questions?
You may contact us by EMAIL
or call (763) 390-0539.

Weather for Shipping:
 
To be able to ship, the temperatures anywhere a puppy flies to, including lay-overs must be between 10 and 85 degrees.  If temps are too hot during the day, often times an early morning or late evening flight will work. 
Check the forecast for your local airport to see if the temps are in the shipping range.  If your airport chooses to participate in Delta's Summer Program, then the 85 degree temperature restriction will be lifted.

EXCEPTION:  During the hot summer months, Delta has incorporated a wonderful Summer Program to keep your new baby safe!!  The puppies are never out of the air conditioning for more than 2-3 minutes during the entire process, from here to there.  Unfortunately not every city they fly into chooses to participate in the Summer Program.  So you may need to drive a bit further to a different airport if the one closest to you, or any airport the plane connect through, doesn't not participate in this program.  If this is the case, the temps will need to be below 85 degrees. 

In the winter it ALWAYS needs to be above 10 degrees at any location the plane stops in. 
Visit Weather.com or Weather.gov for your local forecast, up to ten days in advance.
