Rosebird Augusta

Sire: Gunnislake Darcy’s Dynasty

Dam: Chardress Ebony Sprite

Rosebird Augusta ; Augusta was chosen on her superior Labrador Retriever Traits . She is a most worthy Labrador Retriever Bitch , she has incredible agility and loyalty. She combines a most intelligent expression with a broad deep head and large soulful eyes. She is a beautifully robust labrador Retriever. She loves to swim and swim and swim and will jump in any water anywhere no matter how cold . This is an incredible labrador Retriever attribute when you consider this is precisely what Labradors were bred for.

Our inclusion of Gussie into our programme can best be described by Wikipedia
Labradors are powerful and indefatigable swimmers noted for their ability to tolerate the coldest of water for extended periods of time. Their ability to work quietly alongside hunters while watching for birds to fall from the sky, marking where they land, and then using their outstanding nose to find and retrieve dead or wounded birds has made them the king of waterfowl retrievers.[49] They are also used for pointing and flushing and make excellent upland game hunting partners.

Labradors are an intelligent breed with a good work ethic and generally good temperaments. Common working roles for Labradors include: hunting, tracking and detection (they have a great sense of smell which helps when working in these areas), disabled-assistance, carting, and therapy work Approximately 60–70% of all guide dogs in Canada are Labradors; other common breeds are Golden Retrievers and German Shepherd Dogs. Labrador Retrievers have proven to have a high success rate at becoming guide dogs. A study was recently done on how well four different breeds (Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever Mix, and German Shepherd Dogs) trained to become guide dogs. In this experiment, German Shepherd Dogs had the highest chance of not completing it. Labrador Retrievers and Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever Mix had the highest success rate.

The high intelligence, initiative and self-direction of Labradors in working roles is exemplified by dogs such as Endal, who during a 2001 emergency placed an unconscious human being in the recovery position, retrieved his mobile phone from beneath the car, fetched a blanket and covered him, barked at nearby dwellings for assistance, and then ran to a nearby hotel to obtain help.

Rosebirds Augusta’s Arroser Labrador Retriever pups will make any owner proud!

More about Breed standards from Wikipedia
Official breed standards
There is a great deal of variety among Labradors. The following characteristics are typical of the conformation show bred (bench-bred) lines of this breed in the United States, and are based on the American Kennel Club standard.[19] Significant differences between UK and US standards are noted.
• Coat: The Lab’s coat should be short and dense, but not wiry. The coat is water-resistant, so the dog does not get cold when taking to water in the winter. That means that the dog naturally has a slightly dry, oily coat. Acceptable colours are black, yellow, and chocolate.
• Head: The head should be broad with slightly pronounced eyebrows. The eyes should be kind and expressive. The ears should hang close to the head and set slightly above the eyes.
• Jaws: The jaws should be strong and powerful. The muzzle should be of medium length, and should not be too tapered. The jaws should hang slightly and curve gracefully back.
• Body: The body should have a powerful and muscular build.

• Size: Labradors are a relatively large breed. They should be as long from the withers to the base of the tail as they are from the floor to the withers. Males should stand 22.5 to 24.5 inches (57 to 62 cm) tall at the withers and weight 65 to 80 lb (29 to 36 kg). Females should stand 21.5 to 23.5 inches (55 to 60 cm) and weigh 55 to 70 lb (25 to 32 kg). By comparison under UK Kennel Club standards, height should be 22 to 22.5 inches (56 to 57 cm) for males, and 21.5 to 22 inches (55 to 56 cm) for females.[21]

The tail and coat are designated “distinctive [or distinguishing] features” of the Labrador by both the Kennel Club and AKC. The AKC adds that “true Labrador Retriever temperament is as much a hallmark of the breed as the ‘otter’ tail.”

More about Labrador Retriever Temperament form Wikipedia
The AKC describes the Labrador’s temperament as a kind, pleasant, outgoing and tractable nature. Labradors’ sense of smell allows them to home in on almost any scent and follow the path of its origin. They generally stay on the scent until they find it. Navies, military forces and police forces use them as detection dogs to track down smugglers, thieves, terrorists and black marketers. Labradors instinctively enjoy holding objects and even hands or arms in their mouths, which they can do with great gentleness (a Labrador can carry an egg in its mouth without breaking it).] They are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, as a result of being bred to retrieve game such as waterfowl. They are prone to chewing objects (though they can be trained to abandon this behaviour). The Labrador Retriever’s coat repels water to some extent, thus facilitating the extensive use of the dog in waterfowl hunting.

Labradors have a reputation as a very even-tempered breed and an excellent family dog This includes a good reputation with children of all ages and other animals. Some lines, particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field (rather than for their appearance), are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear may require training and firm handling at times to ensure it does not get out of hand – an uncontrolled adult can be quite problematic. Females may be slightly more independent than males. Labradors mature at around three years of age; before this time they can have a significant degree of puppy-like energy, often mislabelled as being hyperactive. Because of their enthusiasm, leash-training early on is suggested to prevent pulling when full-grown Labradors often enjoy retrieving a ball endlessly and other forms of activity (such as agility, Frisbee, or fly ball).

Although they will sometimes bark at noise, especially noise from an unseen source (“alarm barking”), Labradors are usually not noisy or territorial. They are often very easy-going and trusting with strangers and therefore are not usually suitable as guard dogs.
The steady temperament of Labradors and their ability to learn make them an ideal breed for search and rescue, detection, and therapy work. They are a very intelligent breed. They are ranked # 7 in Stanley Coren’s The Intelligence of Dogs. The AKC describes the breed as an ideal family and sporting dog. Their primary working role in the field continues to be that of a hunting retriever.

Queenie will shortly retire and her dynasty will continue through her beautiful daughter Arroser Quincy pictured at 6 months at the end of the photo gallery slideshow above.

Labeana Clementine

Labeana Clementine

Sire Labeana Hugo Boss

Dam Labeana Billy Jean

Clementine is sired by superstar show dog and sire CH Labeana Hugo Boss, and her Dam CH Labeana Billy Jean is equally famous for her winning in Australia. Between them there is not much these incredible Labrador Retrievers havent won .

Wikipedia states that
The Labrador is an exceptionally popular dog. For example as of 2006:
• Widely considered the most popular breed in the world.
• Most popular dog by ownership in Australia, Canada, Israel. New Zealand UK, and USA (since 1991), In both the UK and USA, there are well over twice as many Labradors registered as the next most popular breed. If the comparison is limited to dog breeds of a similar size, then there are around 3 – 5 times as many Labradors registered in both countries as the next most popular breeds, the German Shepherd Dog and Golden Retriever.
• Most popular breed of assistance dog in the United States, Australia and many other countries, as well as being widely used by police and other official bodies for their detection and working abilities. Approximately 60–70% of all guide dogs in the United States are Labradors
• Seven out of 13 of the Australian National Kennel Council “Outstanding Gundogs” Hall of Fame appointees are Labradors (list covers 2000–2005).
When you meet Labeana Clementine you will know why these stats just get better and better. She is far and away the most popular and loved Labrador Retriever at Arroser Kennel. Everyone that visits simply must have a puppy from her. ( at this point she hasn’t been bred-she is too busy with her dad doing farm work working horses and greeting visitors and clients)

Is it that she has the most level topline in the business? A super stifle? a very short thick jaunty tail? Can it be her broad head and those beautiful eyes that say “gosh I am glad to meet you and talk with you today?” is it her ground covering trot that expresses both power and elegance? Her well sprung ribs?

You know what? I don’t think its any of that stuff! I think Clementines magic on everyone who meets her is her ability to fold her world class body in half in ecstasy and still waggle from head to foot.

Clem brings us joy every day and reminds us why we are so lucky and proud to own Arroser Labrador retriever Kennel
