Description:  The Labrador Retriever is a strongly built, very active dog.  Wide over the loins and strong and muscular hindquarters.  He is easy to train and is good with children and other dogs.  The Lab is good natured, loyal and hardworking.  He should never be aggressive.  He makes a good gundog and domestic pet.
History:  The Labrador was brought from England to Newfoundland Island, Canada in the early nineteenth century.  He worked collecting fish that fell out of the nets.  He was also used as a retriever for water birds.  At one time Labradors were only black, now yellow has become more popular.  He remains one of the most popular breeds of dogs.
