The gentle, intelligent, and family-friendly labrador retriever from Canada continues to be the most popular breed in the United States, according to AKC registration statistics.
This versatile hunting breed comes in three colors -- yellow, black, and chocolate.
Because of their aptitude to please their masters, they excel as guide dogs for the blind, as part of search-and-rescue teams, or in narcotics detection with law enforcement.
An ideal sporting and family dog, the labrador retriever thrives as part of an active family or as a trusted hunting companion.
Because of their even temperament and trainability, labrador retrievers are owned as pets by millions of Americans. The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc.
