The Labrador Retriever is a type of gun dog, one of several kinds of retriever. Even-tempered and well-behaved around young children and the elderly, Labradors are athletic and playful, and are possibly the most popular breed of dog. It's ancestors originated on the island of Newfoundland, Canada, with the St. John's Water Dog around the 16th century with the modern breed being stabilised in England in the 19th century.
They can be yellow, black or chocolate colored with significant differences between show and field-bred dogs. Show-bred dogs tend to be more heavy with shorter legs than the field-bred Labradors with their more functional athletic build.
Their temperament is often described as kind, intelligent, pleasant and even-tempered making them excellent family dogs. Their sense of smell allows them to follow most scents to their path of origin, generally staying on the path until they reach it.
These characteristics also lend them to becoming great working dogs, with roles including hunting, tracking, disabled assistance and guide dogs.Mugs | iPhone Covers | Bags |
