Lab Breeders in California

Despite my best efforts to convince my fiance he should get a Golden too, he is looking to adopt a lab. His parents have a yellow lab who was bred from both filed and show labs and we love his disposition, but his breeder has since stopped breeding. Does anyone have any recommendations for lab breeders in CA? I've tried looking online but can't find anything as helpful as this forum for labs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

No breeder suggestions but make sure health testing is in order. Labs need hips and elbows after 2, same as Golden's, heart should be performed by a cardiologist using echocardiogram (ultrasound), eyes annually and some breed specific genetic testing.

I just googled "labrador retriever forum" and three forums similar to this one popped up. Perhaps members over there will have more breeder suggestions for you. Good luck in your search!
