Breed Spotlight: Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are the lovable, family-friendly dog we all know and love! Labs have been the most popular breed in the United States for 25 years running. One of the older recognized breeds, Labradors were originally bred to be strong, active retrieving dogs that excelled in hunting and swimming. The breed, named after the Labrador Sea where it originated, continued to be developed throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and was recognized by the AKC in 1917.

Today, these dogs are known for their outgoing and energetic personalities, and are extremely intelligent and devoted pets. The Labrador Retriever is consistently warm, loyal and good-natured, making it a wonderful companion for individuals and families of all ages. Muscular and athletic, these pups have a fairly high energy level and therefore require a significant amount of exercise.

Labs are an incredibly versatile breed, as they can excel at anything from K9 police work to agility to service work for the disabled. Full grown labs are medium sized, typically weighing in at about 55-75 lbs. Labs have short, low-maintenance coats and only require minimal bathing and brushing.

Did you know?

This breed comes in three colors—yellow, black and chocolate. While today it is America's most popular dog, Labs were almost extinct by the 1880s, until English fans of the breed saved it.
