connolly's Mulligan Girl ("Mully")
Our Mully is the matriarch of High Desert Labradors. This loving girl is as beautiful as she is intelligent. She has a calm, joyful disposition and is not a barker, jumper, digger, or a chewer. Most of all, her loyal and attentive nature makes her a wonderful companion to our children.
Mulligan comes from a line of quality, pure bred AKC Registered Labrador Retrievers, including Master Hunters. We invested in extensive health clearances for Mulligan, including OFA Certified Hips & Elbows and EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) and PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) genetic screenings.
Mully is now retired from breeding and is the lifetime companion of my son, snuggling up to sleep in his room every night. Mulligan’s legacy carries on through her Champion-sired offspring, "Dakota Duck Dog," and our lovely dams “Sadie” and “Holly.”
Classic Rossignol of high dessert ("rossi")
"Rossi" joined our family from esteemed breeder and trainer Linda Weld. Rossi is Champion-sired by foundational stud dog, International and American Champion Karousel Pleasure Seeker. Her pedigree is star-studded with many Champions and Titles in both the show ring and field, including Master Hunters.
She has a very calm, affectionate temperament and a compact, English build with a gorgeous blocky head. Like all High Desert Labradors, Rossi has OFA Certified Hips & Elbows, as well as genetic screenings for EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) and PRA/PRCD (Progressive Retinal Atrophy).
Rossi is now enjoying a pampered retirement with the Allen family outside beautiful Taos, New Mexico! Her legacy carries on through her gorgeous offspring, “Sadie” and “Holly.”
High desert's serendipity sadie ("sadie")
“Sadie” is the beautiful offspring of our Rossi and Champion-Sired Dakota. Her classic English build, gorgeous near-white coat, and calm eager-to-please demeanor make her one of our most stunning girls yet!
This smart girl rings bells at the back door to let us know when it is time to “go potty.”
Sadie’s first breeding is planned for Spring of 2017. Like all High Desert Labradors, she will garner thorough health clearances, including OFA Hips and Elbows, EIC (heart), and PRA/PRCD (eyes).

High Desert's Hopeful Holly ("Holly")
“Holly” is the littermate of “Sadie,” another gorgeous girl from our lovely Champion-Sired Rossi and the handsome Dakota. Her taller stature and lean features compliment her joyous spirit!
Holly is eager to please and boasts smarts, too… she obediently curls up in her crate the moment I show signs of getting ready to leave the house, without a vocal command!
Holly’s first litter is also planned for Spring of 2017, following thorough health clearances including OFA Hips and Elbows, EIC (heart), and PRA/PRCD (eyes).
goldberry might white samson ("sammy")
We were thrilled to pair our Mulligan with National and International Champion Our Lovable Labs Goldberry Mighty White Samson! "Sammy-Boy" has an impressive pedigree, sired by Canadian Champion Goldberry's Cold Drake.
Veteran breeder Lisa Imberi describes him as "friendly, loving, mild-mannered and playful... a big, huggable teddy bear! He's great with kids, adults, other dogs and even cats." Sammy has thorough health clearances, including OFA Hips and Elbows, CERF (eyes), EIC, and PRA/PRCD. Click here to learn more about Sammy.
champion sired dakota duck dog ("dakota")
Dakota is the offspring of National/International Champion Our Loveable Labs Goldberry Mighty White Samson and our beautiful and attentive Mulligan.
