Labrador Retriever Breed Basics

Labrador retrievers are a favored family dog due to their mild disposition and affectionate nature. They make a great pet for owners who spend time on or near to the water. They are also prized as gun dogs, and their ability to retrieve game fowl from water. Labs are are frequently used as guide dogs or to provide aid for the disabled or as therapy dogs Their smelling abilities and intelligence also mean that they are often used by law enforcement and military organizations - a truly versatile breed.

The Labrador is descended from the St John's Water Dog first bred in an area near Newfoundland Canada They were brought to England in the 1820s, where owners gave them the name Labrador to distinguish them from the Newfoundland (a gun dog from a near area). Originally the dogs were black only, and yellow and chocolate varieties were not accepted until the early 20th century. Labs are usually bred for confirmation at show events or as field dogs. The former tend to be chunkier and calmer, while the latter tend to be taller and thinner.

They are great family members. The Purebred dog is regarded as kind, outgoing, gentle, loyal loving. affectionate and even tempered - always eager to please their masters. A great all around family dog.

The Labrador Retriever's coat is short and dense, but not wiry. The dog naturally has a slightly dry, oily coat that is water-resistant, so the dog does not get cold when taking to water in the winter. Although the AKC refers to the official colors as being either Chocolate, Black or Yellow, it may vary quite a bit. The yellow can range from an almost white cream to fox red. Chocolates can vary from medium to dark brown. They weigh between 55 and 80 pounds
