ABOUT BREED

At one time, almost all Labradors were black. Black is the breed’s genetically dominant color and still one of the most popular color choices today. However, Labs can also be yellow, chocolate, red, cream, silver, and even white.

Temperament

If you want to buy a Black Labrador Retriever puppy, it’s smart to do a little research first. Like many hunting breeds, Labs are gentle, good-natured, loyal, and very intelligent, which makes them easy to train.

Labradors need lots of vigorous, outdoor exercise every day. If they are not mentally and physically challenged, they become bored and can become destructive. Because they were initially bred as water dogs, they are famously good swimmers. They enjoy dog paddling in lakes, rivers, pools, and the beach, even when the water is quite cold.

These pups do very well with children. The big dogs are usually tolerant of climbing and tugging by small children and love to be spoiled. This confident yet tender pup is social and easy-going around new people. Their overall demeanor and companionship make this breed one of the most popular breeds in America.

 

Health

If you’re considering adopting a Black Labrador Retriever puppy, make sure you understand this breed’s special health considerations. The average life span is between 10-12 years. While this is a robust breed, one of the most common health issues is Hip Dysplasia, which can be brought on or aggravated by excess weight.

Other health issues to watch for are:

  •   Progressive Retinal Atrophy
  •   Cataracts
  •   Elbow Dysplasia

Obesity is a common issue with Labs, so observe your dog’s diet and give your pup plenty of vigorous exercise. With all breeds, it’s essential to stay current on all shots and vaccinations and to take your pup in for regular vet checkups.

 

History

This breed is one of America’s most beloved dogs. This breed descended from a black fishing dog known as the St. John’s Dog on the Canadian island of Newfoundland. In fact, they got their name because they were water retrievers from the Labrador Sea, off the coast of Newfoundland. In England, breeders developed this Retriever throughout the 19th century, and breed standards were developed. At that time, Labs were found to be good hunters and quickly became a favorite gun dog.

At one time, almost all Labradors were black. Black is the breed’s genetically dominant color and still one of the most popular color choices today. However, Labs can also be yellow, chocolate, red, cream, silver, and even white.

Today, the English bulldog makes a fine family pet. The AKC recognizes the breed simply as the bulldog.
