Appearance
The Labrador Retriever is a handsome, sturdy, and robust dog that is large in size. He has dark, wallowing eyes, and an eager and intelligent expression. The coat of the Labrador Retriever is short, close fitting, and sleek, and the coloring can be black, yellow, or chocolate. The weight of the Labrador Retriever is around 55-70 pounds for females, and around 65-80 pounds for males. In terms of height the Labrador Retriever reaches around 21-24 inches for females, and around 22-25 inches for males.
 

Temperament
The most popular of all the AKC breeds, the Labrador Retriever is a good natured, loving, and loyal dog that makes a wonderful family pet. These dogs are intelligent, responsive, and obedient, which makes them one of the easiest breeds to obedience train. The Labrador Retriever is well suited to both inexperienced and experienced dog owners. He is very quick to learn, and is friendly and sociable, with a mild manner and a very amiable attitude. The temperament and personality of the Labrador Retriever reflects his number one position on the AKC popularity list. He is full of energy, loves to join in with a wide range of activities, and has plenty of love and affection to shower upon his family.

The Labrador Retriever is not a dog that is suited to those with little time for their pets, as these dogs thrive on companionship and affection from their loved ones. Some do have a tendency to chew, and in particular can indulge in destructive chewing if neglected. Although these dogs have plenty of spirit and some can be quite independent, they are usually easy to train, as they are clever and eager to please. This breed gets along with just about everyone, from children and strangers to pets and other animals. These active dogs do require regular exercise, and will fare well with a secure, safe area in which to play and enjoy some exercise.

 
History
There are many theories as to the origin of the Labrador Retriever. It is believed that the Lab's ancestors were brought to Newfoundland by explorers, fishermen, and settlers from England and other European nations. One theory suggests that the Labrador descended from the Newfoundland dog. However, there is no evidence that any dogs existed in Newfoundland prior to the arrival of the fishermen or explorers and, in fact, it is thought that the Newfoundland dog itself was brought to the island by fishermen from Europe. Today, based on Canadian Kennel Club and American Kennel Club registrations, the Labrador Retriever has been the most popular breed in Canada and the U.S. for the past several years.
 
Health
A Word of Caution: In part due to the popularity of the breed, the Labrador Retriever is, unfortunately, at risk of irresponsible breeders attempting to cash in. If you are considering the purchase of a Labrador Retriever puppy, be especially selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder.
