The Labrador Retriever originated in Newfoundland and Labrador, a then-British province that is today part of Canada. This breed descended from a now-extinct dog breed called St. John’s Water Dog. These dogs were highly skilled divers that supported fishermen with retrieving fish that had fallen off their lines. The breed was imported to England in the 19th century, where it was developed by royalty (the family of Earl of Malmesbury) into the Labrador Retriever dog.
Labradors became recognized by the Kennel Club of the UK in 1903 and by the American Kennel Club in 1917. Given their intelligence and high energy levels, these dogs have become popular working dogs and hunting dogs. Their friendly dispositions have also made them one of the most popular family companions worldwide.
Labrador Retrievers are fantastic family pets. In fact, they have been the most popular dog breed in the United Statesfor over 30 years! This breed is friendly and outgoing and enjoys spending time with people. Labs also make good companions for families with toddlers or small children. They are high-energy dogs and so benefit from living in larger homes with outdoor spaces or being taken out for exercise frequently if living in a smaller space. Labs are highly intelligent and trainable, which is why they are often used as therapy dogs, service dogs, and for search and rescue missions. Adding a Lab to your family is like adding a smart, loyal, and caring family companion.
Labrador Retrievers are prone to specific health and genetic issues. Some of the most common health problems in Labradors include:
There are three recognized types of Labrador Retriever: 1. The American Labrador Retriever 2. The English Labrador Retriever, and 3. The Canadian Labrador Retriever. All three are types of Labs share many similarities, but there are some differences in size, form, and personality across them:
Labs are a popular breed and can be commonly found at shelters and rescues. Your best bet for finding a Lab to adopt is by searching your local adoption agencies. If these organizations do not have Labrador Retrievers available, you can then extend your search to regional or national organizations. Examples of reputable organizations are: Lab Rescue LRCP and American Lab Rescue. You can also look at state-specific agencies such as the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida and Lab Rescue Inc. Oklahoma. If you find a more local organization, do additional research to understand their philosophy and practices, including any vet care or behavioral training they provide their Labs while under their care.
Given the popularity of this breed, it is important to be vigilant to avoid purchasing from puppy mills or backyard breeders. We recommend taking the following steps to find a reputable Lab breeder:
