There are few dog breeds that are as popular as the Labrador Retriever and there is good reason for this. The Labrador is a high-spirited, medium-sized breed that makes for an exceptional retriever, gun dog, and companion. Not only are Labradors terrific in the field, but they are also very reliable guide dogs for the blind. Labradors have a dense coat that comes in black, yellow, and chocolate.
