 Fuskie on island time

Fuskie on island time

The Gartners are loving their new puppy! We brought “Camille” home to Hilton Head Island on December 21st, 2012. Her name was instantly changed to “Fuskie,” named after Daufuskie Island where she will be spending her summers with us. She goes to work with me every day and is really an incredible dog. She never leaves my side, she’s house trained, she sits and she comes when she is called. Hunt training will begin soon, although battling through the “training” that she is receiving from the wife and kids may be difficult. Although Beulaville, NC is quite a long way from Hilton Head, SC, Maco Light Labradors made the trip worthwhile. The puppies, pens and facilities were very clean and nice. The dogs at this facility are amazing. The website was really helpful and easy to use as I used it to place a deposit on the dog immediately after speaking with Brandon about her. Brandon and Ashley helped us get to their location, gave us ideas on where to stay while in state and finally and most importantly, they had “Fuskie” all dressed up in a Christmas bow for our children who were unaware of the nature of our trip. This was their Christmas puppy and Brandon and Ashley were instrumental in helping us pull it off. I’ve purchased a number of labs from various breeders and this has been my best experience hands down. Maco Light Labradors had all of “Fuskie’s” paperwork in order, gave her final shots when we picked her up, and were always available via telephone to answer questions AFTER we had bought the dog and taken her home. Thank you Brandon and Ashley for everything. We love her!

 Captain in the snow

Maco Light Labradors made the experience of bringing home Captain, our English Labrador puppy, a memorable moment in time. Ashely and Brandon, the owners of Maco Light Labradors, made us both feel like we were extremely important to their business. Allowing us to come and choose our little man alone and spend as much time as we wanted, truly made us feel special, like they were just as excited for us as we were to adopt our new pup.

We agreed that the genetic lineage was very important. Captain’s parents, Rio and Sky, were two of the most beautiful, well-mannered Labradors we have ever met. Captain’s laid back, sweet and pleasing personality certainly are attributed to his mom and dad and are qualities money can’t buy. This comes from breeders like Maco Light Labradors who raise their dogs in a loving environment. We can’t go anywhere without our little puppy following right at our heels!


Maco Light Labradors exceeded our expectations. From the clean, large kennels and homey conditions for new mothers and litters to providing all documentation of Captain’s lineage, we left feeling exceptionally confident that we would be adopting a healthy and happy puppy. With unsurpassed knowledge, quality, and care, Maco Light Labradors sets the standard for all breeders with healthy and beautiful litters, well-maintained kennels, and passionate and caring owners.

We received a small blessing into our home one month ago, and I have to be honest, I am in love. I am no where near an animal lover but I compromised with my family to get a family dog. I did my research on what type would be suitable, then found Maco Light Labradors. I was blown away by how much knowledge they knew and were able to share about the breed (they captured my attention). From day one CoCo clung onto me like I was her mom, she looks at me with those beautiful eyes and I melt. Everything that the text book says about these loveable labs is so true. She is gentle, intelligent and good-tempered a real family dog. I still may not be a real animal lover but I am loving my CoCo. Thanks Maco Light Labradors!

Morgan is our world. The three phrases that describe how she fits in with us is best friend to our daughter, daddy’s girl to my husband, and companion to me. She is seven months old now and the perfect puppy. Morgan trained easier and faster than any other dog I have come in contact with. It only took a little over a month and she was fully potty trained. She is also very food motivated and will do anything to get a treat. In addition, she is the biggest sweetheart! She loves people and gets along with any dog she comes in contact with. Her excitement is something that can never go unnoticed because her whole body wags along with her tail and she ends up walking sideways. She not only has the perfect personality, she also has the looks. She has the most beautiful carmel eyes and a gorgeous dark chocolate coat that shines even when the sun isn’t out. We often talk about how worth it was to make the 2 1/2 hour drive to Maco Light Labradors. Ashley and Brandon are very knowledgeable and great to work with. You can tell how much they love their dog family! Their puppies are worth every penny because they are very healthy and have a great temperament. You get what you pay for and we certainly did!

I just want to let you know that I could not have picked a better place to buy my AKC chocolate lab! I could tell immediately over the phone that your hearts and full dedication was in on the breeding of these labs. You have been nothing but full of information and answering all of my questions since day 1. I feel that if I have any questions or concerns at all, no matter what time it is, I can count on Maco Light Labradors to go out of their way to help me solve any problem. This is not just breeding labs for you guys, its your passion and its obvious! I really do not think there is any place better than Maco Light Labradors! I could never thank Maco Light Labradors enough for giving me a healthy lab and for still being apart of his life as he becomes a great family dog and hunting dog!

Maco Light Labradors love their pups! My dog Trigger is an amazing lab and I have had nothing but compliments on his demeanor, his look, and his all around personality and vibe. He has surpassed all of my hopes for a dream pup..no whimpers in the kennel at night, potty trained very fast, and truly, he’s just a freakin’ load of fun and has a great lil spirit!
Thank you guys for caring so much about what you do and finding great homes for your “ extended family” (your pups).
