Meet our dogs!

Judge and Jury have retired from breeding but will remain on the farm as our beloved fur babies for the rest of their lives being spoiled and knowing that they produced top notch puppies that have gone on to do great things!

Alibi and Chief are sure to produce the same outstanding quality pups that their predecessors did once they are both of a healthy age and we cannot wait to see their future babies!

Howard's Bayou Teche Alibi


Ali is an American yellow AKC registered Lab who has the sweetest personality and temperament, and was born and bred from the Bayou Teche line out of Louisiana. Ali has an amazing pedigree and lineage with several in the Retriever Hall of Fame and many champion hunters and field & trial Masters. With a background like hers we knew she would be something special; and she is!


Ali loves water, diving, retrieving, and is quick to pick up commands. We started her training immediately upon bringing her home at 8 weeks old and she has become an amazing dog. Not only is she gorgeous but she is brave, curious, has a great on/off switch, eager to please, focused, determined, and is excelling in everything we throw at her! She is healthy and has a great structure to boot!! We cannot wait to see the puppies this little gal is going to produce!

Howard's Hard Knox Chief Justice


Chief, call name CJ, was born and bred here on the farm at Middle Creek Labs. As the son of Judge and Jury, CJ is 1/8 English and 7/8 American Lab. There are over 15 Master level hunters and field and trial dogs in his lineage and he is proving to have a strong drive, love of water, and easy on/off switch! 


Chief has excellent structure, health, drive, and temperament. He loves to play and is always ready to get into the woods or the water and will retrieve all day if you let him! We could not resist keeping one of the amazing pups by Judge and Jury and we are so glad we did! He has proven to not only be smart but he is the most loving boy anyone could ever hope for. He, like Ali, has looks, smarts, health, love, and tons of personality! This guy is going to not only make good looking babies, but excellent hunters and family dogs as well!

Howard's Hard Knox Judge


Retired from breeding

Judge is an AKC registered silver Lab bred in Morrison and raised on our farm here in Madisonville, Tennessee since he was 8 weeks old.


Judge is three quarters American Lab and one quarter English. He has excellent body structure, great health, natural drive, even temperament, and is the most loving boy we have ever owned! To top it off there is nothing this big boy can't sniff out! He is eager to please and is always ready to play, cuddle, or work.


His puppies have made wonderful dogs that will have proven to be well suited to a number of jobs including service, working, hunting, show, farm, or just for the family to enjoy!

Howard's Savy Jury


Retired from breeding

Jury is an American Lab and is Tennessee bred from Master Hunter stock with her sire's side alone holding more than 10 titles in his pedigree in multiple generations. Further down her tree there are more champions and titles any Lab would be proud of!

Jury is a one-of-a-kind girl who will retrieve, dive, and swim all day if you let her! She has an amazing temperament, focus, confirmation and build that suits many activities. Jury is an incredibly fast learner and lives to work and be with her humans. She is one amazing mama who produced phenomenal puppies, but we weren't surprised, she gives everything 100%!

(Embark clear except Jury does carry 1 recessive DM gene, only dogs with 2 are concerning per genetic counseling, Zero health issues)
