Fishersgate Labradors are a small family run stud owned by Sarah Busby. I brought my foundation bitches from the UK in 2003 when I moved to Hawkes Bay. I aim to breed labradors with sound temperaments, true to type conformation and loyal, loving natures. My labradors are primarily pets who share my life 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 (Jet) 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 April 2021 to Willowspring Shadow Hunter and a litter is expected in early June. They will be black and yellow. Please enquire.
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.
