The Full Story

Breed Information

This page is a great opportunity to learn the background on the different breeds we raise and what they have to offer you and your family. 

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever has spent the last quarter-century in the top spot for popularity according to the American Kennel Club. Due to their loyalty, lovability, gentleness, and patience this breed is by far second to none!  As puppies they need exercise mentally and physically, routine, and love. Training these dogs is on the easier side, as Fox Red Labradors are smart and love to please!  No one is quite sure when the first Fox Red Labrador debuted, but it has always been much more uncommon than other Labs. As a result, these dogs are typically more expensive than other Labradors Retrievers. The AKC recognizes the red coat as a very dark shade of yellow.  As there are only three true shades of Lab coats, Black, Chocolate, and Yellow. *Note- Red Fox puppy coat's will darken for the first 2 years.

Mastador

The Mastador is a designer dog, an intentional cross, between an the English Mastiff and the Labrador Retriever. The cross results in a large and playful gentle giant. Their temperaments are a good mix from both parent breeds; calm, trainable, and compassionate. Early training and socialization are key to any breed, but are a must for the Mastador breed due to their guardian nature and size, and will become territorial and over protective if not socialized.  At Red Fox Mountain we breed 1st generation (F1) Mastadors, which means we breed our purebred Lab to a purebred English Mastiff.  This will result in puppies that are all black with possible white markings.
