Fishersgate Labradors are a small family run stud owned by Sarah and Peter Busby. We brought our foundation bitches from the UK in 2003 when we moved to Hawkes Bay. We aim to breed labradors with sound temperaments, true to type conformation and loyal, loving natures. Our labradors are primarily pets who share our lives but our puppies are now living in the UK, Australia and across New Zealand. Fishersgate Labradors are versatile, multi-purpose dogs with lots to offer.
For a number of generations we bred chocolate labs but in 2013 added a wonderful black bitch to our family. Blackhills Faith for Fishersgate is from our own bloodlines through a bitch that Blackhills Labradors had from us. Coupled with the wonderful bloodlines of Lars, (Kropsmarken Simply The Best) she is very much part of our family. Her grand daughter Fishersgate carnival Girl (Rio) is our other black bitch, her sire Blackhills Star David is Yellow so Rio carries the yellow gene. Rio was mated in January 2020 to Southerly Dennison Coal to Blackhills and a litter was born mid March. All puppies are now sold.
We love to take photos of our dogs so please enjoy the gallery images. They should give you a flavour of what our dogs and puppies are like.
