Rumajas Amber Sky Crimson Rudy, 'Rudy' is a well bred classic English type yellow male
Labrador Retriever. Rudy's shade of yellow is considered "Fox Red" and his sire,
Brick (Keepsake's Brickhouse) comes from one of the premier
Labrador kennels that produces yellow labs that have the fox red shading, Keepsake Labradors.
Rudy is an excellent example of our third generation of breeding and is already displaying the
classic 'English' type and he has yet to fill out his massive frame. Rudy has a broad square
head, with a soft expression with eyes that speak volumes of his kindness and calm loving
temperament. He has a tremendous amount of bone, a nice top line, and an excellent otter tail.
Rudy has his hips cleared through Penn Hipp at the 90th percentile and his eyes are cleared
through CERF. Rudy is an awesome dog and we are expecting big things from him as he continues
Rudy was whelped by our own Lumpy
(Rumajas Amber Sky Pride and Joy) and is a littermate to Reba
(Rumajas Amber Sky Crimson Reba) and Cherry Pop (Rumajas Amber
Sky Cherry Pop). Rudy is the result of a beautiful combination of both his
sire and dam resulting in a stunning English type fox red Labrador. From his sire, Brick, Rudy
inherited his deep fox red color, his strong English characteristics, and his calm temperament.
From his dam, Lumpy, Rudy inherited an impecably calm temperament, a soft kind expression, and
a recessive chocolate gene enabling him to produce all three colors of Labradors if bred to
the right lab.
Rudy is also a half brother to two of our other fox red labradors that were whelped by Lumpy,
Pebbles (Rumajas Amber Sky Crimson Pebble) and
Pippy (Rumajas Amber Sky Crimson Pip. Like his littermate
and half siblings, Rudy has a beautiful dark fox red coat and strong English characteristics.
Rudy has sired litters that have been black, chocolate, yellow, and fox red and will be a great
asset to our fox red Labradors.
