About Us

We are excited to announce that we have found a perfect family that will continue to keep Enchanted Desert Labs (EDL) open for many years to come. We have the upmost confidence that the Ortega’s will keep Al’s love, respect, and excitement for Enchanted Desert Labs going with each litter to come in the future. The new owners had a very special bond with Al over labs, breeding, hunting, teaching, photography, and the great outdoors. Over the years, they became dear friends, and we are excited to have them take over this business for Al and Bev.

This Ortega family has been apart of EDL for 5 years after they picked out their first lab, Aspen, from Chip and Habi’s litter back in 2018. With much education and dedication, The Ortega family will continue to provide you with high quality AKC champion bloodline Labradors. They currently own 4 labs from different litters that were produced from Enchanted Desert Labs. Matthew, Kc, and their children currently reside in Bosque Farms, NM.

In the coming weeks the Ortega family will introduce themselves as the new owners to Enchanted Desert Labs.

  1. Bella (Cate) was so calm on the 2 hour ride home! She has such a wonderful temperament. We love her more today than yesterday! Thank you for the wonderful puppy. Am following your site looking for some chocolates!!

  2. A remarkable breed of Labs with top notch inherent abilities/skill-set for both the field & family room! I’ve hunted over hundreds of labs in my Waterfowling Career all over North & South America and Al & Bev’s dogs are unquestionably the best of the best. If I ever acquire another, EDL is one of two places in the America’s that I would shop for my next hunting/family canine.
    To be even more specific, early in my relationship with EDL/Al&Bev it was my honor to hunt over “Chili”…..the best all around Lab I’ve ever spent time with!! I’ve literally described Chili to many in my travels as “The Wonder Dog”!!!
    Best wished for continued success EDL “The Hidden Jewel of the Dessert”

  3. Thank you thank you thank you for our beautiful boy. He’s a great addition to our family. This has been the best experience I’ve had getting a dog. Jake is big, healthy and fit. He knows when to be calm and when to be excited. I can’t express how happy I am working with both of you getting him. I’ve emailed you some pictures of him and hope you agree he’s gorgeous. Everyone that sees him comments on how beautiful he is. I tell them where to look for one close to him. I’ve already told my husband when we get another dog we’re coming to you. Jake has even gotten his first tittle in obedience! He loves everyone and can make a dog hater into a dog lover with his antics!

  4. We purchased a puppy 12 years ago from you. Lucy was the beautiful dog. Love caring compassionate loyal athletic and family friendly. She made our family and lived complete. She passed last week and she left a huge hole. First I want to thank you for allowing us to have Lucy and make her part of our family. We are interested in getting another puppy. Please keep me in formed about availability. If I could post a picture I would. Thank you again!

  5. My Dad, George Whitaker got a yellow lab from you in April of 2018. In mid 2019 he moved to Alabama with Titan. Unfortunately my Dad passed last month but Titan is now back in New Mexico. He is a big boy, 115 lbs!!! He is a great listener with a wonderful personality. Thank you for giving my Dad a dog he loved with all his heart. Titan truly was his baby!

  6. I want to say goodbye to Al, he was an amazing man who bred the best pups. He was an instant friend to all, and was always eager to talk about his exploits in Alaska. I also want to offer my heartfelt condolences to Bev, his lovely and gracious wife. RIP Al, till we meet again in the happy hunting grounds!
