We're Expecting Puppies in October!

Great news from Top of the Hill Labs!  We are expecting a litter of puppies from our yellow female, Willow, and our chocolate male, Maverick.   We’ll expect puppies to be born about October 9th and we usually get all 3 colors when we breed these two dogs. Puppies will be ready to go to new homes at 6 weeks old – just before Thanksgiving! Our puppies are AKC registered, will have their first shots, first vet check and are well socialized. 

About the Parents:
Willow is one of our beautiful yellow (almost white) females. She has a very loving and loyal personality with a playful side. She loves to run with our other dogs and is great at playing fetch. The sire of this litter is our chocolate male, Maverick. Everyone loves Maverick's big blocky head, big paws and relaxed personality. While he weighs nearly 110 pounds, he is truly a gentle giant (and at times thinks he is a lap dog!)
To reserve a Puppy:
We are currently accepting deposits for puppies from this litter. A $100 deposit is required to reserve a puppy from this litter and the balance of $500 is due when you pick-up your puppy in November.   Puppy selection is based on when deposit is made (note – deposit will be returned if we do not have the puppy you requested).  Deposits can be made by mailing a check or via PayPal (use our e-mail address   )
Please call Kim at 419.551.0871 or 419.452.6758  or send an e-mail to regarding your interest in placing a deposit or if you have any questions.

We're Taking a Break!

Sorry!  We currently do not have any puppies at Top of the Hill Labs!

It will be late fall/early winter before we have our next litter of puppies. Mya and Willow, our two breeding-age females, are both taking a break right now. We'll hope to breed both of them later this year.

Be sure to check back later this year for any puppy news!

Willow's puppies are now five weeks old and doing great! They are eating regular puppy food now and are almost completely weaned. All nine puppies will be heading to the vet on Friday, January 24th and will then be ready to head to new homes.  We hope you enjoy these photos we took this morning

(Note - there are 10 puppies in this pen now. A black female from Mya's litter is going to a home with a black female from this litter - so they're all hanging out together until next weekend!)

WILLOW'S PUPPIES - Moved to the House!

While Willow's puppies have been doing fine in our barn, with the sub-zero temperatures and -40 windchill yesterday and today we decided it would be best to move the little ones to our basement. Puppies were loaded inside our coats to keep them warm as we moved from the barn to the house. They are now all settled in our basement and we'll start the weaning process more quickly than expected (they had already been eating some puppy food, thank goodness!)  Being an outside dog, we'll bring Willow to the puppies as needed to nurse and once the weather improves we'll hope to move them back to their pen outside. We're ready for Spring here on the farm!!
