Heather Gibbs and her sister Hollie have been breeding silver labs since 2005 selling as warranted for 2-3 years (has recently went up!) If you try to call either you will get an answering service at which time yo will be told they will return your call and if you leave any message other than you are interested in purchasing a pup you will NOT be called back! If you lie as they do and say you are interested in a dog then they WILL answer your call but then when you admit to the real reason you are calling such as YOUR WARRANTY then they will hang up and you will never hear from them again. No matter how many emails and phone calls you make they will not honor your warranty. Buyers Beware as these breeders are in a network selling each others puppies and ANY puppies they can buy for cheap. This is why their websites are very good and have been around for a long time. It is time to expose them for what they are which is puppy brokers who are making money off silver labs with no regards to what they are doing to the breed. Silver Labradors are supposed to look like real labs and should be bred not to silver or charcoal labs but to silver factored chocolate or black labs. Beware of any silvers from an all silver and charcoal litter! Make sure that the parents are on site and that there are chocolate or black bred to a silver or charcoal or better yet come from 2 silver-factored parents which mean that neither parent appears silver or charcoal in color. Breeding 2 dilute colors is not a good choice and willl NEVER be done by a reputable breeder!!! This only magnifies the  negative genes which can and will produce silver labs with problems. Buy ONLY a silver or charcoal from breeders who are doing this and they will most certainly will only sell to the pet owner with breeding restrictions!! This is why breeders like Heather Gibbs in Arkansas, Kellyn from Silver Star Kennels in Texas and Lori Osborn from Silver Moon Kennels in Sparta NC are making money. They breed SILVER to SILVER or CHARCOAL to SILVER to get litters of 7-12 dillute colors which they sell to the pet consumers for outragoeus prices which is why they offer such ridiculous warranties. Breeding Silvers is a job that should never be done by someone without years of expertise in the field. If you are looking to breed Silvers then even more reason to NOT BUY FROM THESE BREEDERS! They are making a fortune off of the unsuspecting pet buyers out there. Do your homework before you buy. You want be disappointed if you find a reputable breeder and let me say from experience there are very few!!

I couldn't believe the negative comments, regarding Heather Gibbs Labrador Kennels.  I have purchased 7 dogs, from Heather Gibbs, over the past 15 years.  Each has been beatuiful, healthy, and well tempered.  They have been deeply loved family members.  One was a Theropy Dog and served the community.  Heather loves her dogs and has always put them first.  Their kennels are heated, airconditioned, and even have music.  Her breeding dogs are certified on everything I an possibly imagine.  They are choosen for bloodlines, health and temperment, foremost.  My dogs are healthy, beatuiful big heads, well tempered, and have made great pets and family members.  If you have concerns, and if you can possbiliy drive to Little Rock, Arkansas...go visit her kennels.  That will answer all your questions.  Check her, yourself.  Don't mioss out on a great dog.

Heather Gibbs Charcoal and Silver Labs is a honest business

 I have purchased 5 labradors, from Heather Gibbs, since 2003.  Each of these dogs have been wonderful.  Heather has been honest and most of all, a true dog lover.  I have known her to refuse sales when she feels the situation would not be in the best interest of her dogs. 

 Heather offered to pay a rather large vet bill, when one of my pups got sick.  When one of my dogs died, even though it's death was in no way related to genetics or her kennel, she gave me a free Charcoal pup. 

I have a Charcoal and a Silver, both born in 2006, from Heather.  They are big and beatuiful with wonderful heads and great confirmation. 

Heather asks potential buyers to wash their hands and remove their shoes, when meeting her young pups!  Her dogs are not a business, to her, but a true expression of a love for dogs.  Her kennel is at her home and my two pups were raised in her kitchen.

I would like to make it know that this is a malicious attack of my character and reputation as a breeder and human being. All of these slanderous statements are 100 % false and are outrageous lies .I want to make it very clear that I do not purchase other breeders pups or litters for resale nor do I sale other breeders litters , I do post links to help others out from time to time and that is free of charge as a courtesy . I do not work with any other breeders, there is no network of deceptive breeders , there is no truth in any of the outrageous statements posted , there is no great conspiracy theory .This is nothing more than an attack against reputable and ethic breeders by an obvious unethical and cowardly person.

 These allegations are those of a coward and are posted on a cowardly website that would allow anyone to post anything they like using any made up name and location and spread false accusations about others all the while standing behind the 1st Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech.. This website refuses to remove the slanderous posting and they do not validate the posts submitted to determine whether they are fact or fiction. The events claimed in this post are pure fabrication, they never took place, I have never sold to this person nor do I know who this person is. One can only wonder what the motives are behind this individuals attack against so many breeders .

 All breeders and buyers should do a search on www.ripoffreport.com and look at the dozens of people who have been slandered and defamed on this website and who are currently involved in civil cases against them. And make the decision yourself on what kind of website this is and the character of the cowards that post on their site hiding behind their 1st Amendment rights and made up identities. We have retained an attorney to legally pursue the ones responsible in this matter and are confident it will be resolved quickly.

 I welcome anyone interested in a puppy from us to make a trip out to see us or speak with someone that has, I stand behind every dog I own and every puppy I sell.
