Labrador Retriever
A Labrador retriever puppy is an iconic image of the American family dog. These wiggly bundles of fun make a great addition to almost any family. The Labrador retriever ancestors can be traced to 16th century Labrador in Canada. The dogs were bred to help with hunting by retrieving birds from both land and water. As the breed was perfected, the modern Labrador retriever was recognized in the early 19th century in Newfoundland. Labradors were first recognized as a breed in 1903 by the English Kennel Club and in 1917 by the American Kennel Club. Today, there are twice as many Labrador retrievers registered in the United States and United Kingdom than any other breed. The Labrador is famous for its love of water, which is no wonder as it was a helper for fishermen, fetching nets and rope or retrieving fish escaped from the nets from the icy sea.
The Labrador has been the most popular breed of dog in the United States for 24 years running. Its affable nature, loyal and helpful disposition, ideal size and strength for assisting people in everything from search-and-rescue to hunting to service animal has kept the Labrador as the top dog. But before the Labrador gained fame as a perfect all-around dog, the breed nearly disappeared.
