The Labrador Retriever originated in Newfoundland in the 19th century. They were then imported to England and used as water hunting/fishing dogs. The breed, as we know it today developed additionally in Canada where it was crossed with Setters, Spaniels and other Retrievers.

Labs weigh an average of 55 to 75 pounds, and are gentle, family-friendly and intelligent making them perfect as guide dogs, search and rescue dogs, law enforcement dogs, hunting dogs and of course, companion.
