Our Grandmothers' Names...
My husband, Nick, and I are a hopelessly romantic and nostalgic couple. The name Bella Frieda Farm comes from honoring our grandmothers by combining their names; My Grandmother, Mary Bella, and Nick's Grandmother, Mama Frieda. We started Bella Frieda Farm in 2015.
Throughout our twenty-five year marriage, we have dedicated our lives to helping others, both two and four-legged beings. We are and were foster parents for many years, and Nick works in the foster care field, training foster parents. I have always been an animal fanatic and have been breeding and raising horses most of my life. When family circumstances dictated that I work at home, I immediately knew that I wanted to raise dogs. It was one of my bucket list items! I have always been a dog person, and have always loved big, affable, mellow dogs.
When I started considering breeding, I knew that I would never be a breeder that would keep my dogs in a kennel. No, my dogs are ALL family dogs and live in the house with me and my family. This includes kids, cats, horses and old, old cranky dogs! Labradors are the perfect breed of dog for our family - and hopefully yours! They are relentless tennis ball fetchers and will do just about anything for a cookie; But are easygoing and relaxed and oh, so good natured!
We have all of our dogs tested for their health clearances from the OFA for HIPS, ELBOWS, and EYES to assure the safety and quality of conformation for their pups. And we guarantee the genetic soundness of each and every dog we breed. We only breed to the highest quality stud dogs to ensure the ongoing quality of the breed. Bella Frieda puppies bring the most the breed has to offer - Loving and kind family dogs who can excel either in the show ring or field, and then lounge with the family at home!
