For the 20th consecutive year, the Labrador retriever is the most popular purebred dog in America.
There's a reason why Labs are the most popular purebreed in America. The Labrador retriever thrives as part of an active family or as a trusted hunting companion. A double-coated breed, Labs sheds seasonally and require regular grooming to keep their coat at its water-resistant best. Because of their even temperament and trainability, Labrador retrievers are owned as pets by millions of Americans.
