Welcome to Sunset Acres! Greetings to all. We are a family of 10. Eight children, five boys, and three girls. The oldest is 19 and the youngest is almost two. We live in central Illinois flat country. Our homestead sits on six acres because of this our dogs have expansive room to exercise.
We started raising a few litters of labs about 12 years ago. Our dogs have brought so much joy and love to our family. They provide our kids to learn daily responsibilities along with keeping them outside enjoying the great outdoors. Our puppies are all well socialized from spending time daily with our family. Puppies all go to their forever homes with vaccines and de-wormer up to date. All puppies have health exams done before they are taken home as well. We feel our puppies health is at the top of the line because of the way we treat our dogs as family along with making sure that they are health tested to ensure no genetic diseases would never harm our pups. By being a responsible breeder we have got so many amazing reviews from our past forever home families. We try to be as transparent and serving to them so that we have a great relationship and a puppy for life.
We hope you can find the puppy that you are looking for. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. We would be glad to answer any questions you might have.

PLEASE DO NOT OVER FEED YOUR DOG! Follow manufacture directions. Over feeding dogs is the greatest cause of cancer and joint problems in dogs. Keep them physically fit with top quality food in the correct quantity and plenty of exercise. Other than an occasional treat of scrambled eggs, some cheeses including cottage cheese we highly discourage human food given to dogs. Dog feed with corn, soy, or wheat products is also discouraged and not recommended. Cooked beef bones from your local butcher can be a healthy treat also. No chicken or turkey bones recommended!
