DOG BREED DESCRIPTION:
The Labrador Retriever descended from dogs taken to Newfoundland by explorers, fishermen and settlers and evolved by natural selection. Excellent retrievers of fish and game, they often sailed with fishermen and in the early 1800s, English sportsmen acquired a few of the hardy dogs.
Labradors, Retrievers, or simply Labs, are highly respected and popular therapy, guide and assistance dogs with high intelligence and gentle, eager-to-please, welcoming spirits. The Labrador Retriever comes in three different colours: yellow, black and a beautiful chocolate hue. They are very affectionate with both children and seniors alike and are ideal for families. Labradors are great swimmers and waterfowl hunters. It is said Labradors are so gentle they can carry an egg in their mouths. That said, Labradors can be be prone to chewing objects and require lots of outdoor action!
