99 Meaningful Names for Male Yellow Labs

About Labrador Retrievers

Labs of all colors originate from Newfoundland, where they assisted fishermen by retrieving errant fish that had fallen free of the nets, as well as by helping to haul nets from the icy waters.  In the 1800's the first Labs were brought to England via Labrador, thus the confusion in the breed's name and place of origin.

Once in England, the breed was crossed with a variety of setters, spaniels and retrievers to improve upon the dogs' natural retrieving instinct.  The modern Labrador Retriever is an affectionate, good tempered dog that is excellent with children, making them the favorite dog breed in the Untied States, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia and Canada.

Labs also possess a keen sense of smell. As one of the ten breeds with the best sense of smell, they are used for search and rescue, bomb and narcotics detection and now in medical diagnosis.  Their gentle temperaments make them ideal therapy dogs and seeing eye-dogs for the blind as well as family members.
