When many people think of dogs, the image they hold in their heads is that of a Labrador Retriever. This classic sporting dog boasts qualities that make it a favorite of families, athletes, hunters — anyone, in fact, who enjoys a dog with great energy, a sense of humor, and a true love of people. The Lab excels at every kind of job dogs can do, and when he's done working, he's ready to play. Small wonder then that the Labrador is the most popular dog in America.
It's not often that a dog's name says exactly what it does, but that's so in the case of the retriever.
