We love hearing about the puppies we have produced in the past. Here are some photos and stories of loved puppies and their new lives. We added this to our web site on April 10, 2007.

Happy 3rd Birthday Keira. You definitely run the House! Would not have it any other way!!

Hi Judy!

I thought I'd send you an update and some pics. Mini is doing fantastic. She has fit in to our family perfectly. She loves her big sister, Dixie (13 year old German short hair) who keeps up with her. They play all the time. She weighs 7lbs, 3oz with a healthy bill of health. We finished one session of training and are planning on continuing until???? She's super smart, a snuggle bug and FIERCELY strong willed lol! A typical Jack russell. My husband laughs cause I'm constantly telling her, " I'm the boss!" Anyway, we just love her to pieces.

I hope your holidays were as fun as ours with our newest addition.


Carl has been everything we could have possibly wanted in a dog. He is very smart, kind and loving. He picks up on things very quickly, which I believe reflects strongly on his breeder. We knew he was the puppy we wanted to take home right when we met him at the farm. When it came to the actual purchase process, Fabrizius Farm was absolutely fantastic and made it an easy process. I would 100% recommend them when looking for a pup!

Two of our Rottweiler puppies and a Wonderful Friend that love the Holidays!!

Hi Judy,

Hope all is well with you during this Holiday season. Please see the attached photo of our Ripley. She is playing in the paddock with her pal Winston. We got Ripley from you back in Sept of 2017. She was from a August litter of Marge and Tucker. She is absolutely awesome and she could not be loved more. She is a great farm dog and is friends with the horses, the chicken and the cat. We are thinking that it is time for her to have a little sister. We are looking for another female Chocolate Lab. Would you have any available in April/May of 2020? Please let us know.

Merry Christmas

Jim H.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you for this wonderful gift!!

Remi is still a super spoiled and very loved puppy!! She is such a well behaved and loyal puppy. We love her so much!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family!!

Hi Judy -

I thought you'd love to see how the pups have grown over the past year into some beautiful "big boys".

This is the pic used for my holiday card this year.

Jamie S.

Nesta (3.5 years old) is an absolute delight. She passed her canine good citizen test with flying colors. She adores kids and is so gentle and loving. She also loves to swim and run and she tries to hunt anything that moves. She has been an amazing addition to our family! We can’t wait for another lab addition from Fabrizius Farm.

Jesse really is a great dog and fits right in here. Jesse has been to the Blessing of the Animals, cheered us on at our affiliate finals in Lincoln (great traveler and fits in the living quarters easily) and is so smart! Jesse comes, sits, lies down and is working on her stays. Healing is a challenge because this little one so little and quick but she does walk nicely on the leash.

Happy 4th Birthday Sweetheart! You make us proud!

Hi Judy,

Hope all is well. Just thought I would share with you that Stubby is still a sweet little boy. He is six months old now and thirteen pounds. He is super cuddly and of course, energetic, and can catch a Frisbee and retrieve a ball.

He even listens to and obeys commands. All the kids in the neighborhood love him and he gets along very well with the small paws at the daycare/boarding out here in Tennessee. He even escaped to the baseball field during my son’s game and got to the ball before the fielder. I am holding his leash much tighter now.

Here are a couple pics of Stubby. Yes, he can jump that fence easily now, but he’ll still does his business in the pen, and likes to sun himself in the empty pool. We’re also discussing a fence.

He even got a blessing from our priest!


Anne P.

This little girl wanted a Rottweiler puppy so bad, that even her drawings included their future puppy. The two sisters were finally given their puppy! Smiles and happiness!! This is what is it all about!!

Hi Judy,

I hope you had a good summer and the school year is starting off well.

Pippen and I had an awesome summer together. Around June Pippen seemed to shed his puppy attitude and adopt a I'm a good doggie personality. Pippen has become super affectionate not only towards me but EVERYONE! His favorite thing to do at the dog park is run around and jump into the laps of unsuspecting people and give them kisses much to their delight.

Pippen loves to go hiking. When it is safe I let him off the lead and he runs ahead a bit, but always stops and waits for me. In the park behind my house he has quite the fan club as the fastest dog in town when he plays "Chuck It Ball." There can be kids at the playground, people playing tennis and other dogs barking and he dutifully retrieves the ball and returns it to me immediately.

I just wanted to give you a report. All I've really done is just spend a lot of time with him this last year. He learned sit, down, come quickly and has learned to watch my face for behavior clues. He knows the name of all his toys and brings them to me by name. He is a keen fellow and I couldn't be happier.

Thank you for such a nice JRT.

All the best,

Pam W.

Xena is a 2018 daughter of Elliott and Rebel. This is my pup Xena from Fabrizius Farm. She is my love ! My husband and I picked her up at 8 weeks. In this pic she is 7 mo. old. These pups of Judy's are big boned and solid ! Their coats are soft and glossy. Impressive pedigrees. If you you wanna know their parents, grandparents pretty easy to find. All on the web site. Try finding that out thru another breeder... I highly recommend these pups. Clean and up front too. Raymond, IAa.

Hulk is doing well, he is sooo smart and mature for his age. We love him dearly. And he is getting along really well with my rescue pit. I hope you enjoy the pics!

Hulk lives in New York State with his loving family!

I just wanted to send an update on our Baby. She is doing very well....especially at eating. She loves to eat. She’s definitely my dog out of us humans. This is one of the few times I got her off my lap....she usually sits on me if I sit down. She knows all of the commands including “kissy” and she will lick me on command. I’m working on “un-caging” her. Up until now she has slept in her cage at night. My Rottweiler mix who is the old lady of the dogs sleeps on the couch at night and the hound mix who is a few months older than baby still sleeps in his cage because he chews things up. Well anyway, two nights ago I let her just go wherever she wanted in our entire house. I figured she’d sleep next to the other dog. Next thing I know she makes herself at home in my bed and snuggled up to me so I was holding her. She’s such a good girl and Adorable as can be. I’m going to have to see if I still have a picture of her being naughty. Even when she is naughty it’s hard to be mad at her. You will laugh when I find that other one. Have you heard from her sisters and brothers? We got baby from the rebel litter. Actually we named her Baby Rebel because I loved the name Rebel but didn’t want to call her junior after her dad Elliott. Lol.

Check out this YouTube Video of the same dog.

Hi Judy,

This is Shawn, my wife Shari and I bought our amazing Rottweiler from you back in July of 2017. I don’t know if you remember us, but we just wanted to send you an update on how our boy Dude is doing. Dude was the biggest of the male puppies from the litter of Elliot & Albee born June 15th around Father’s Day 2017.

Dude is the smartest, most amazing dog we could have ever asked for. Dude learns new skills in a day easy, he knows countless skills to the point that we are running out of things to teach him. He has grown MUCH bigger than we ever expected he would too. He is only 19 months old and weights in at 152 pounds!! The crazy part is none of that is fat outside of what a Rottweiler would normally carry. Dude is just a BIG dog! Haha

It is crazy to see complete strangers walk right up to Dude and ask if they can pet him, normally a dog that size would scare people away. I guess it is just because he is so well behaved and so well mannered, that he just seems very approachable? We of course also have the opposite occur, people who cross the street when they see us walking him, we have even had people taking pictures of him from across the street and pointing because of how big he is. Everyone who has ever asked us about him says he is the biggest Rottweiler they have ever seen. We agree with that also! I told Shari that Dude would probably only get to 110 pounds max. lol


New Video!

Here is a cute video from a family that has two siblings sisters from different litters. Here is their video along with their comments.

Hey Judy,

We just wanted to give you a quick update. We picked up our puppy Mocha in December 2018. She is now 13 weeks old. She is doing great! Our 8 year old, Hershey (Nia’s daughter) had quite the adjustment! After that, they have become little buddies. Mocha took less than two weeks to be fully potty trained and is sleeping through the night. She definitely is a little rascal and keeping us on our toes. This kids are doing great with her as well. I attached a quick video so you can see how she is doing with her training after just a few weeks (at 13 weeks old). She got back from the vet with her second round of vaccinations, and she is a crowd favorite with all the doctors. Thanks again for such great dogs.

We love hearing about the puppies we have produced in the past. Here are some photos and stories of loved puppies and their new lives. We added this to our web site on April 10, 2007.

We can't believe that it's been 9 years already. Our Cola who came from Hersey's Drago and Abigail Von Saenz is doing very well. She still acts as if she's 2 and we couldn't be happier with her.

Thanks again!

These two brothers now will grow up together!! These are two males from Franny and Tucker's litter.

These two full siblings are already best friends!!

Hello Judy,

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Pippen, as you can clearly see, is absolutely adorable. He and I have so much fun together hiking and just loving life together.

"Jacks" are quite a handful and he is no exception. But, everyday he gets one puppy paw better moving towards being a solid citizen. His level of energy is more than any I've seen. But, that was to be expected. I love him to death 97% of the time ;)

Hope you and all of your animals are well and enjoying Mr. Sunshine this weekend.


Pam & Pippen

Hi Judy-

Roxy is doing great. She weighs 103 lbs! We just love her and she is quite the protector.


Last Christmas our hearts were broken when we had to put down Nala our yellow lab. About a month later we decided we were ready for a new puppy. We have always had labs in the past but this time we wanted to try something different. We discussed it as a family and decided we would try it Rottweiler. We have known Judy Fabrizius for a long time and know the quality of her dogs so we contacted her. Fortunately she had a litter that was on its way. In April 2018 we got our puppy Django. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family. He is playful, loving, loyal and thinks he is a lap dog. We are so happy that we chose a Rottweiler, he is such a good fit for our family.

Good Morning Judy,

Hi, I just wanted to send over an email with some pictures of our handsome pup! Oliver has been absolutely amazing. Only a few accidents in the house, he�s so incredibly smart and playful. He�s amazing with kids, he doesn�t chew. He�s truly an amazing pup dog! He�s such a good good good boy!!! Thank you so much for such An amazing dog!! I attached lots of pictures of what we have been up too! Oliver loves kayaking and swimming, he loves rolling around in the grass and playing frisbee! He�s so incredibly fast!! He trained so quickly and so well. He�s even begun learning the names of some of his toys. His absolute favorite is a duck with two squeakers, when they squeak he cries back to them! Along with the pictures I attached some very cute videos of him just being goofy in bed, and him crying to his toys! Thank a ton Judy! You guys are the absolute best. We get so many compliments and get stopped everywhere about how handsome he is and we never stop recommending you guys are breeders!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

This is a puppy from Jade and Wanna Bee, our miniature Australian Shepherd dogs.


Ava is doing great, here's her puppy class graduation photo.

Ava is a daughter from Ember and Hunter! We are so proud of Ava and her new owners!!

Kona - 10 1/2 weeks :)

She�s such a funny, sweet, pretty chill little girl! We LOOOOVE HER! She knows how to: sit, come, take food � nice� , no, go potty, no whine, and of course her name:))) So glad you had this litter, and we found you at the time we were looking for this puppy! Thanks again:)) Dede :)

Hi Judy,

Boomer is the biggest fun filled sweet well behaved puppy ever!! I couldn't love him more !!!! Thank you soo much. I would not get a Rottie from anyone else. I couldn�t love him more. My kids think I love him more than them. Haha. He has such a huge personality!! Such enormous joy he brings to our family.

Thanks, Cindy

I purchased Bryzzo in June 2017 and could not have been happier with my decision to add him to our family. Bryzzo is very intelligent and has been very easy to train. He is a working dog and views training as a job. He loves being around and playing with other dogs. He is extremely friendly but not only with other dogs, with people too. He has been around infants and young children with no problems. He is gentle, kind, and loving. He also never runs out of energy while playing. Bryzzo will fetch until his legs collapse underneath him from exhaustion. He loves to accompany me on long walks and hilly hikes. My favorite thing though about Bryzzo is loyalty and obedience to me. He follows me when I walk, sits when I sit, and awaits my return if I leave. We can play fetch and have 50 yards between us and he still comes back to me on command. He truly has become my best friend. If you�re looking for a loving, loyal, gentle, and playful companion, I suggest you look into buying a Miniature Australian Shepard like Bryzzo.

Thanks, Zach

Hi Judy,

Hope all is well with you . We just wanted to send you an update on the puppy we purchased in August 2017. Bindi is thriving. She has a wonderful personality and is extremely smart . We can�t thank you enough . She fits right in with our family . We love her to the moon and back . I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a puppy. Thank you again. Happiest of Holidays to you and your family. Sincerely

The Millers

Dear Judy,

Our beautiful Maggie is a great girl. What a blessing she has been. She loves her walks, tennis balls, soccer balls, sand box, long leads in the field, rawhides, love, snuggles and the whole family together. We just love her to pieces. Our pack is complete. Thank you so much!


Katy, Brenden, & Boys

What else do you do on a beautiful Fall weekend! Enjoy and play!!

Hi Judy,

Our daughter Martha purchased a puppy who I believe was from a litter brought from by Hunter & Hannah.

Anyway what a great addition she is to our family. We named her Millie and she has grown a bit from when we brought her home in March. I've attached some pics for you all of her in case you're interested. We take her everywhere; to the local dog parks, to Lake Michigan dog beaches, for car rides and also long walks in the neighborhood.

We love having Millie. She is well tempered, behaves well and just wants to be everybody's friend. You and your website have been recommended to several people we know. I'm sure others with your pups love them as much as we love ours.

Thank you again and keep up the great work!

Kurt, Mary and Martha

Hi Judy,

Hope you are enjoying your Summer. Leo graduated from his training class last week with the top score of 198 out of 200! The instructor said Eric is doing a fabulous job with him. Attached are a couple pictures of the boys with their trophy, as well as a nice one of them celebrating father's day!

Have a great evening.

Annette M.

Hello Aunt Judy,

It's been awhile, but just checking in. I am doing awesome. I am almost 2.5 yrs old and just had a wellness exam - 95 lbs on the dot.

Hope you well and check back with u later.

Thanks, George

Tracer's parents are Hannah and Hunter.

Tracer is 3 months old. Doing really well. So happy to have her in the family.

Dave, Adrien, Anna, Molly and "Tracer"

Tracer is 6 months now. Sure! We are moving to a house with lots more land- 10 acres for him to play on and go hunting. We are so glad we found him!!

One of Hannah and Hunter's puppies went to Colorado. He is doing well and enjoying his new home.

This is our Gemma, we picked her out from you July 2013. This is a pic of her first time camping, she loved it. She is the most loving dog I ever had. We would love to get another baby from you when the time comes.

Judy, Thank you! Mocha has filled our life with joy and comfort.

Mike and Jo

The girls are doing great together. Ivy weighed in at 75# Friday and we're still a week shy of 8 months old. She is a cuddle bug, both with me and Sadie.

Hi Judy

Hard to believe, but a year ago today we got to meet our puppy Grace for the first time before taking her home. She's just been the best puppy ever, so sweet, cuddly, energetic and cute. She's perfect and we love her so much. Thank you for our best puppy ever.

-Bevin and Will

A beautiful Christmas card we received this year!

We wanted to send you a holiday photo of LUCY�S puppy we purchased from you. We named her Shawnee. She is an absolute delight. She loves everyone, is super sweet. She knows several tricks and loves her treats.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from the Eisch family.

Hey Judy,

We just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas! Rosey is doing well. She loves playing in the snow and the kids are still trying to teach her new tricks. Have a happy holiday.

The Billingsley's

Hi Judy,

I just wanted to share a picture of our Yogi we got from you July 4th, 2015. He is the best dog we have ever had!

Merry Christmas!

Hey Judy, Just wanted to say I have so many people stop to ask what breed our beautiful puppy is. The fox red lab throws them off for sure. We are enjoying Nesta immensely. She is such a sweet and loving girl. She adores our two kids and they constantly play and wrestle with her. Thanks again for giving us such a great dog.

Hey, I just want you to know Dany is a wonderful addition to our family:). Liam, our young son and Dany cuddle and play all the time. I took this pic of her just now. Dani is one of Jade and Wanna Bee's daughters who was born in July of 2016.

Here are the two sisters, Ether and Lucy. They live right down the road from us and it is neat seeing them grow up!

Hi Judy -- hope this find you all well. Where has the time gone! The puppies are almost a year old! Leo is doing fabulous -- growing by leaps and bounds! He is a big lover and a very, very good boy. LOL

Here's an updated picture for you to enjoy. Take care!

Amy H.

This is one of Ember and Hunter's puppies!

Hi Judy!

Just wanted to send you a few recent pics of Nesta. She has entered the insanely mouthy party of puppyhood, but we still love her!!! She's so smart and doing so well in puppy class. She can sit and lie down and come and she doesn't mind having her toenails clipped.

She is obsessed with other dogs and has found some great playmates.

Thanks again! We adore her.

Dear Judy,

Here is Our little dog named Jack! He was born January 7, 2014!

Is just about to go on the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Morris, Illinois. As you can see his smile is from ear to ear! That is how his 'fun-meter' is pegged! Thanks again for such a nice addition to our Family!

Mark & Lisa Morris, IL

Hey! I've been meaning to email you this week. Uma is doing great! She was potty trained in 10 days! She loves our German Shepherd and our son Rowan. They are all so funny together. We just adore her! Thanks Judy!


Here Mala gets the jump on her older sister Zayda with who gets to ride on the sled first!!

Hello Judy & Family,

Another year has gone by since we have updated you on our precious Rottie boy, Hoover's Dozer, affectionately known to us as "Dozer" He turned 3 on December 4th - a male pup from Zen & Caesar's Dec 4, 2012 litter.

Time sure does fly right on by. Dozer remains his mommy's sunshine through it all!! He still has his many "puppy" moments where he forgets what listening means, but he is finally starting to take direction and commands from other family members (not just his mom). He also still remains the happiest Rottie we have ever owned, and his mom calls him the King of Smiles.

Here is a recent pictures for you, including Dozer's new favorite hobby of snowmobiling! Yes, if you look closely you will see that he is actually riding on the snowmobile. He also loves to run after it, as most dogs do, but his absolute favorite part is when he gets to climb on it and go for a snowmobile ride with his dad! :)

We wish you a very Merry Christmas, and much health and happiness in 2016!!

The Hoover Family


Hello there! We hope you are doing well and you and your family are ready to enjoy Thanksgiving together this week. I just wanted to share what we've been up to with Trevi this past month!

We are having so much fun having Trevi in our family. He is really laid back, lovable and very smart. He has already graduated from "Puppy Training" class and I've enrolled us in "Intermediate" basic training starting in December! He is a "celebrity" everywhere we go, and I sing your praises when they ask me where I got him. Most days, Trevi and I walk to pick the boys up at school, where most of the school children and the local crossing guard know him by heart. When he's not playing with kids in the backyard, we have walking paths with lakes and streams and he just loves running in the water when we go on long walks. He sleeps through the night in his crate, is mostly potty trained, and has not destroyed any furniture..............that is success in my book!

I thought I would share some recent photos of him playing in the snow with my boys. Just wanted to keep you updated and informed, thanks again for providing us with the best dog in the world!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Zac and Zoe are getting ready for the holidays!! Too cute! Thank you for the photos!!

Enzo just turned 3 on November 5, 2015, whelped from Ceasar and Gloria. Here he is with our daughters two Great Danes. If people think dogs cannot reason, think on their own and do not have feelings they must not have met a fur baby from Fabrizius Farms. Enzo continues to be the best most lovable awesome dog we could have possibly hoped for to be a part of our family.


November 18, 2015

Hey there!

Thought I'd say hi! Zac and Zoe are doing awesome!! Zoe is 3.5 and Zac just turned 3! These two are the best Rotts ever! So sweet and great with kids and other dogs too. They go to day camp twice a week and play with all size dogs! The photo by tree is Zoe, isn't she gorgeous! She was from Reese's litter.

Hope you are well and liked the pictures.

Here is Smokey! Turns 1 November 29, 2015! Hes a special dog! Just wanted to send you some updated pictures! Last we checked he was 100lbs! Still growing!


The Justen Family

Hi Judy, wanted to send you some updates on Shandy. She's about 95% house trained, has learned to bark at the door, and has mastered 2 commands from just working with her at home. She is also a fabulous walker! We have started walking her without a leash and she is so good! Our vet has had nothing but good things to say about her and she is SUCH a good girl! I had a question for you, I have some family that live in Arizona and are looking to get a lab. I was wondering if you had any contacts out there that I could refer them to?

Take care,


Hi Judy

Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Sparty. He is doing great and spoiled and loved dearly! He just completed a bootcamp training program and is now training for our invisible fence. He is extremely smart but stubborn too! He currently weighs 51 lbs!

We love him!

Thanks! Kim N.

Hi Judy

This is Lambeau born May 20 th 2012 to Reese and Caesar...she turns 3 this year....she is the love of our life and the lives of many. At age one she qualified for Therapy Dogs International.

She visits schools as a reading dog , assisted living facilities, libraries and is soon to visit a veterans facility...she is the friendliest most loving dog ever ...

I have worked hard in the area of discipline and performing many extra tricks....

I'm sure you hear many good stories about your dogs & I just wanted to share one more. This picture is one of many school kids that read to her they love her. Thank you for giving us such a beautiful girl.


Patsy F.

Congratulations to these two beauties on winning these awards! Maggie passed her canine good citizenship test and Joey was first in his class at another barn hunt trial. Great job Mary on their training! We are proud of all three of you!

Hi Judy,

My name is Julie. In 2001, we brought home a chocolate lab (born on April 21st, 2001) from your farm that my husband and I named Zoey. Zoey was our first baby and a part of our family. We have since had 2 children a boy and a girl that are now 11 and 8.

Zoey was with us for 14 years and she just left recently. We are heartbroken but grateful for the many years that we had with her. We were so blessed, she was the best dog ever! We loved her so very much. I attached a few recent pictures here of Zoey.

I was on your website today and see that you currently are not expecting a litter. Will you let me know when you would anticipate another Chocolate litter? Our home needs a puppy to love and we would love to get another from your family.

Thank you,


Hi Judy,

I got my Rottie from you 4 years ago today. She is just a wonderful dog! She is a lover not a fighter and definitely a giant lap dog. She is a great family dog. She is also an awesome bird dog. I take her with me on my birding adventures and she has spotted owls, hawks and other great birds. She found me my first Barred owl and Broad-winged Hawk!

So today, I just want to say thank you for breeding such wonderful dogs. I attached a photo of her with an Osage Orange in her mouth.

Sincerely, Barb V.

Dozer (born 12-4-12) asked us to send you a message wishing you a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Here he is in November 2014 & just last week cuddled up with his mom by the Christmas tree.

Dozer turned 2 years old less than 2 weeks ago, and I cannot imagine how we ever lived without him in our home. He is the happiest Rottweiler we have ever owned! He loves everyone he meets & loves to play, play, play. He is very much loved by us all, but he is still very much a momma's boy and there is no place he'd rather be than cuddled with his mom (his mom agrees!)!

Thank you again for our beautiful boy!

-Kim & family.

Hi Judy � wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know Nikita is doing great, and we just love her�.hope things are well with you.

Here�s a recent picture of her and the girls! Our Christmas photo�.

Take care,


We all would like to thank you again, we are our in love with our Piccolo! He has met all the kids and grandkids. We had the first bath at his home,learned warm blankets are great and loves his cage. We went to our oldest grandsons football game, and a trip to our family cottage in Wisconsin! He is a fast little puppy, our youngest calls him a Ninja!

Thank you so much!



As a first time dog owners I cannot express how happy we are!! His bath went really well. After we took him to show him off to some friends and then to bed. He let us know at 5:30 this morning that he wanted to go out. LOL!! He seems to like his crate and his new toys!! My wife and I want to thank you so much for this.

Thank you,

Jason & Carol


This is our girl Lola whom we purchased from you. She was born 11/21/2010. Just wanted you to know she's doing great! I can't believe how fast time is flying by. She's such a cuddler.

It is hard to believe that Rufus is almost one year old. He wanted to wish his Mother a Happy Mother's Day!!

Dear Judy,

This year, March 1st marks the 7th birthday of our chocolate lab Cooper. As I do every year, I think of Fabrizius Farms and our spectacular experience with you all as we met your dogs Sugar and Buddy, and picked our sweet puppy to take home. If I remember correctly, he was one of eight males in his litter! Not quite sure how that was seven years ago, time sure flies. Cooper is such a great dog. We live in the city, but he has an active and healthy life. A 15 acre park is just one block away and he loves it, along with lake vacations and beach time here in Chicago. However, we've also brought home three babies in the last few years, who I'm sure are making him go grey. :) He is a sweet boy, sometimes a bit neurotic - but a puppy at heart!

I've attached two pictures for you, one of my husband (with Cooper) and me at your farm, and one of Coops today.

I hope this finds you and your family doing well and expecting some springtime puppies!


Maggie and Chris S.

We celebrated Enzo's first birthday recently. At one year old he is amazingly calm patient and attentive. He has yet to meet a cat, dog, adult or child that he doesn't just love. He is registered as a national service dog so he travels with us regularly and we make sure to brag on his breeder.

It is almost unbelievable to say but Enzo is becoming more loving calm and gentle the older he gets. This dog is amazing and I know most owners think so of their own dog but Enzo is special. Everywhere we go he accepts love from all ages and is the center of attention. We are so in love with our boy.


Just relaxing in the couch!

The cutest pair ever!!

Today DOZER is officially 4 months old. Here are a few pictures of him for you. He is doing great in his puppy manners class, loves & is loved by everyone he meets, does great at the vet, loves going to the horse barn nightly, loves playing outside & LOVES his bones!! He is growing leaps and bounds, weighing in at almost 45 lbs., but he is still a mama's boy!! :)

Hope all is well with you!!

Thanks again!

Ken & Kim

Hi Judy! We purchased these two girls from you in December of 2012. In this picture, Rigby is on the left and Demi is on the right. Rigby is at a whopping 40lbs and Demi is 35. The girls are pretty well potty trained and they know how to sit,stay, and lay down! They keep us on our toes but overall they're great girls! Thank you so much for blessing us with our new additions to our family.

Louis is doing great, he is hell on wheels of coarse (LOL) but we love him madly! He is a big baby (pushing 60lbs already!), he likes to lay in between us in bed and have his belly rubbed. He spoons with me and he lays his head on my shoulder or on my pillow!!! He's only a little spoiled! Thank you so much for breeding these beautiful best friends!!! Catie

Bear is a great addition to our family, he is beautiful and very affectionate. Although he is under the impression that he is a little lap dog! :)

This is one of Sadie and Tanner's daughters.

I bought a precious Yellow Labrador puppy from you a about 2 years ago and since then have received so many compliments on him! I thought I would shoot an email over to say hello! I've attached a few pictures of him now. He was from an October 2011 litter. I believe he was born October 20th and he is just a littler over 2 years now. I have nothing but good things to say about him. A good looking healthy happy boy we have!! Thanks again and hope all is well. Jamie

I can't say thanks enough for our loving Rot Enzo. He has brought so much laughter and joy to our family. He is very smart and sweet! At 12 weeks he follows commands "sit, down, stay, and come." He is potty trained, and has such good manners in public. Here is a picture of him when we stayed at the Cheshire Inn, St. Louis. The staff and guests loved him.

Enzo's parents are Gloria and Caesar.

This is the only way to go.

Zoe at 8 months old.

Zac and 3 months old.

This is ZoeBella at 8 months old with my 8 year old nephew. Zoe's parents are Reese and Ceasar. She is such a good girl, extremely smart, you teach her something one time and she never forgets it. She is so well trained and we haven't even started anything formal. She loves my 2 nephews and is so gentle with them, and she is great with her 3 month old buddy Zac, my second Rottie I got from Fabrizius Farm. Both fantastic very smart dogs, 2 of the best I have ever have! Thanks for breeding such great dogs.

Here is a very sweet One Year Old Birthday photo of Ella and Murray's son!!

Congrats to Kadi for receiving her award!!

Norco, who is one of Zen and Caesar's sons. He is nine weeks old in this photo.

TeaJai is so smart! At almost 11 weeks of age, she already knows how to sit, stay, come, lie down! She went to the back door to tell me she had to go out for the first time tonight! I really stink at training so believe me she catches on so fast! Tomorrow I'm going to teach her how to give paw.


I can't resist showing this to you. TeaJai has her little curtsy down pat. I'm still working on "sit pretty" but she needs better balance. What is really great is that my neighbor got a puppy around the same age as TJ, and they get along great, so we are making play dates for them around 3 times a week. A tired puppy is a happy puppy is a well behaved puppy, lol.

You know Judy, I have to mention to you, I was bringing TJ to this "puppy playtime" that some training school offered, and it was great, and I will take her there for training in April.

Anyway, TJ is really becoming a GREAT dog, and I'm serious. Plus, with the great weather and daylight savings time, and the 2am dead of winter puppy pees outside at an end, this is going to be a great spring/summer. Hope all is well with you! Thanks for a great dog!



Wanted to drop a line to let you know how great Bear is doing. He is such an intelligent dog. He knows his name, sit, stay, leave it, & the come commands, working on shake, lol. Walks on a leash very well. He is a bundle of joy in our lives. Today is his 12 week check-up at the vet. Thank you for such great breeding. He will always be the love of our lives.

Best Regards,


The love of a young boy and a chocolate lab!!

Hey there, I thought I would send you some photos of Rocco! He is now 30 pounds and growing! He has been such a great dog and loves to play with the kids and with other dogs as well. All of our friends can not believe what a great dog he is! He is great in his cage and stays in there quietly. Just thought I would send you an update. Thanks and I hope you are all doing well. Hugs & Kisses, Mary Jo

Hey! I wanted to send you these pictures of Max. He is now 7 months old and weighs 94.4 lbs. He is a really tall and seems to be all muscle. Which we feel when we play w/ him or when he wants to sit by us on the couch. We get sooo many compliments on his looks and his GREAT temperment. He loves our five grandsons and has a favorite that he will not let out of his site if he ventures off on his own. He did really well in his beginning obedience class and we will take him to the advanced class in the fall. We really love this big guy !!! Thank-you for a great dog !!! Debbie K.

Just wanted to let you know our Chocolate Lab Hershey has been doing great. She seemed to get acclimated overnight. Great temperament. Even with the 5 kids and all of their friends all over her and in her face, she is so calm and well mannered. Potty training is going very well. She walks into her crate every night on her own to go to sleep. We have even began some early training with sit, stay, come and walking on a leash. People cannot believe what she can do at such a young age. She has been getting tons of love and exercise from everyone. Thanks again for a great dog.

I just wanted to say hello and tell you that our little girl is doing wonderfully! She couldn't be a better pup - it is great. She has latched on to our other chocolate lab like glue and they really love one another. It is truly amazing. She was potty trained in less than a week and really catches on to everything due to my other labs. We ended up with the name Lilly versus Abbey. Abbey wasnt rolling off my tongue for the first few days and then one day, she sat down while I had her in the back yard, and fell asleep on a Day Lilly... . And I thought ....Lilly- perfect! She's our Easter Lilly! I think she is starting to look alot like Nia. We love her.

Dear: Just wanted to drop a quick note to you to let you know how happy we are with Lola. Everyone truly enjoys her. She has a great personality. She's doing great in her puppy class. Makes me wish that I should have purchased her brother. I keep telling my husband, I want another one. Thanks!! Hope all is going well!!

Hersey and her new family!

Here is a photo of one of our yellow labs that is ready for the holiday season!!

I highly recommend this breeder. We are very happy with our 4 year old chocolate lab that we got as a puppy here. He is very healthy and smart. He loves kids! "

This is Sydney who is one of Caesar and Abby's Daughters. Growing up with a Rottweiler is the only way to go!!


I just wanted to show you how much Bowser has grown. Today is his 1st Birthday!(9/21/10) He was from the Emma and Ceasar litter! He is happy and healthy and we love him very much!

Hi! Just wanted to give you an update on one of the black male puppies we adopted from you last June that we named Logan. Logan is now 44 pounds (18 wks) and is an absolute tribute to his breed. All the wonderful qualities that labs are known for- intelligence, retrieving, trainability, eager to please etc. We take him almost daily to the dog park where he happily retrieves and socializes with all the dogs. Logan's obedience training is going extremely well and he heels nicely on a loose leash most of the time and is almost ready for the intermediate puppy class. I find him smart (he housebroke almost overnite), calm (the vet even commented on how impressive Logan's calm demeanor was), willing and of course he is beautiful! Whenever we go anywhere he is like a people magnet with everyone wanting to know where we got him and remarking how healthy and classic "lab" he is. I've given many people your name and internet address. My daughter- Olivia is absolutely in love with Logan and takes an active role in his exercise schedule and training. Logan walks with her very well and has proven to be a wonderful companion.

Can't thank you enough for breeding such a fabulous dog. He's everything we had hoped he would be! Thought it would be nice to give you an "update" on one of your babies! Hope you had a wonderful summer and Fall finds you and your family healthy and happy!


Hi Judy! I have been meaning to contact you for a bit now- just wanted to give you an update on one of your puppies who we welcomed into the family Fathers Day 2010. (Buddy and Coalie)

Our black lab who we named Logan is w/o a doubt one of the best dogs I have ever seen or had the pleasure of interacting with! He is so "classic" lab with all the wonderful qualities that the breed represents. I enrolled Logan in obdience training at about 3 months of age and he obtained his Canine Good Citizen by age 6 mos. We have gone on to train in Rally/Obdience and 3 weeks ago both "my" Olivia and myself competed in our first Rally trial in Spring Grove, IL. Logan titled with Olivia, receiving 2 scores of 199 (out of 200), a 196, and a perfect 200! I also titled against more experienced dogs in groups no less than 10 and received 3scores of 209 (out of 210) and 1- 206. In run off's we placed 2nd, and 3rd out of 14 dogs! Logan received Outstanding Level of Achievement certificates and the judges commented on what a wonderful personality and temperment he had! I received many inquiries as to where he was bred and was happy to give out your name and web address to many. I routinely receive strangers at dog parks etc. approaching me to complement how handsome he is also. Again- always let people know who you are! As a family companion we could not have asked for a better dog. He is gentle, willing, smart, patient, low key,affectionate and devoted! He wants nothing more than to do his jobs (bring in the paper every a.m. and assist with the mail). He is athletic and excels in his retrieving skills as well as jumping up to catch frisbees and balls. I don't know when we will be ready for another dog as yet but when we are your farm is our stop.

Thank you for bringing such a wonderful animal onto this earth. I hope to do some therapy work with him and obtain his Therapy title. He is such a great ambassador for the breed. Love the pics on your website. You have a beautiful family and I can see everyone takes great pride in running the farm. I'll be glad to post any reviews for you and your dogs ever. Even Olivia's teacher has your name because they are thinking about another lab for their family and have seen and heard us rave about Logan.

Take care-

Thanks again!

Lynn L.

Hi! Bailey is doing very well! I wanted to send you some pictures of her! She is soooo pretty and so smart! She has a cute personality! She loves to give high-fives, lay in the shade, sit on our front stair and look out the window, and even tries the Wii fit!! Thank you again for such a sweet puppy! She's the absolute best! I never thought I could love an animal so much!

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know again how pleased we are with our chocolate lab, Daphney. She was born on Mothers day 2008, from Nia and Buddy. She is the best dog ever, and we really love her a lot. If I could I would buy 10 more I would. Thanks again, you do a great job! Mary L.

This is Shelby. This photo was taken after a long day of having fun with her new family!!

Just wanted to send you a recent picture of Shelby. She's doing great...getting big. She's 10 lbs. and she's a lot of fun. She chases squirrels in our yard, but hasn't caught one yet because she leaps at them like a gazelle. It's pretty funny to watch! When we go for a walk, she picks things up in her mouth and carries them home. Rocks, sticks, pinecones...we have a small box in our garage where we make her drop her "treasures" before she comes into the house. She's a great puppy and we love her very much. Hope all is well! Debbie

This is a testimonial from one of our past owners:

I was just woken up by the friendly nose (and soggy play toy) of my best little girl Grace, and I am compelled to thank you guys again for your good works. She is my pride and joy from her perfect little toes to the little hairs hanging from her cropped tail. She has many neighborhood friends(although not Chicago aldermen, they want to require $100,000. insurance policies on "fighting dogs." She is just such a perfect, sweet girl and we will be forever your testimonial to Fabrizius Farms. We will send a picture in Dec. on her 1st birthday.

Sincerely, Carolyn & "Grace"
