If you have decided, that you would like to adopt a rescued Labrador, please contact your nearest Area Coordinator in the first instance, after which you will be asked to complete a prospective home questionnaire here or fill in our online form. This needs to happen before you can be considered as an adopter. Once the Area Coordinator has received the completed questionnaire, one of our Helpers will contact you to arrange a home visit at a time when all members of your household are available to chat.
The foundational breed of what is now the Labrador Retriever was known as the St. John’s water dog, St. John’s dog, or Lesser Newfoundland. When the dogs were later brought to England, they were named after the geographic area known as “the Labrador” (they were known as Labrador Retrievers because they “retrieved” in the Labrador Sea) or simply Labrador to distinguish them from the larger Newfoundland breed, even though the breed was from the more southern Avalon Peninsula.

I love labs because of their big hearts. They are amazing dogs that are so in tune to our human emotions. I love my yellow lab really more than anything. I am my happiest when he is with me, no matter what we are doing.
Labrador Retrievers, more commonly known as Labradors or ‘Labs’, love to be with their family. They are high energy dogs that need lots of exercise and training, particularly when they are young. Being one of the most popular breeds Labradors wear many ‘hats’ from working dog to companion animal. As a breed they are fun-loving, even-tempered and ideal for families that consider their dog to be part of every day life.
Think about your favourite people. Now condense their finest traits: gentleness; tendency to observe and listen; sensory delight in the world around; unmitigated joy at communion with nature and intuition for the way you feel. That’s your labrador.
Inca, who died in 2012 having accompanied me to the island of Taransay when I was a contestant on the BBC’s Castaway programme, my wife’s dog, Maggi, and our new family puppy, Storm, have turned me into a barking crazy labrophile. Kind, loyal, diligent, hardworking, biddable, gentle and faithful: I may be biased, but it’s no surprise that the Labrador is by far the most popular breed in the UK and indeed the world. One estimate puts the population in this country at more than 500,000. Jack Russell terriers, the second favourite, number 376,000.

So the Labrador has gone from being a fisherman’s companion to a specialist wildfowl retriever to the world’s most popular domestic dog. Now, just like Inca, Storm has started joining me as I work but her life is a long way from her ancestors’ who worked those nets off Newfoundland 300 years ago.

A Labrador Retriever has the kind of versatility that other dogs only dream of. He can be a companion, show dog, hunting dog, canine athlete, guide dog, service dog, sniffer dog, search and rescue dog, and therapy dog. He enjoys jogging (health permitting), boating, swimming, hiking and more. If it’s active, outdoors and with his people, the Lab is ready and willing to participate in any activity.
by September B. Morn, Pam Tanzey (Illustrator). Virtually every aspect of training is covered, including housebreaking and paper training, basic obedience, teaching the animal to obey both verbal commands and hand signals, retrieving, and walking on a leash. Also covered are humane methods of breaking a dog’s bad habits, such as begging, jumping on people, unnecessary barking, and biting or showing other forms of aggressive behavior. The typical Labrador Retriever is relatively easy to train. The author takes readers step-by-step through her method, which emphasizes positive reinforcement. Filled with instructive full-color photos. Paperback, 176 pages.
All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, don’t walk, from any breeder who does not offer a health guarantee on puppies, who tells you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or who tells you that her puppies are isolated from the main part of the household for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur in her lines. Here’s a brief rundown on what you should know about some of the medical conditions that can affect the Labrador’s health.
Registered Puppies have the guarantee up to 30 months for any Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, PRA-PRCD, RDOSD, EIC, CNM, and Refractory (near sightedness). If any puppy is proven to have any of these diseases, the owner has the option to keep the dog but you must neuter your dog. Most owners have grown attached to their dog and I understand this. I will be happy to give you another puppy out of a similar breeding at your convenience. I strive for the best breeding possible, but as much as I may strive, Mother Nature has her own course and with that being said this means that oddities do happen occasionally. I apologize now if this ever does happen to you. Trust me as much I love these 4-legged Angels on this Earth more so than humans, I will be just as upset if not more, over your dog having anything at all wrong with it.

My 15 year old chocolate lab woke up one morning and could barely walk. Mind you, the day before she was running after tennis balls. Took her to the vet. X-rays showed spurs and arthritis. She also started peeing and pooping. Vet said Kaopectate,WORKED GREAT.

Ken Bailey: “Art and painting always came easy to me. I started painting in the seventh gradeand was quite serious about it from the beginning. My formal art education was the University of Utah. However my degree was in Geography which has helped me tremendously with my landscapes paintings.”
Labs typically have litters of six to eight puppies. Most breeders like to keep puppies until they are at least eight weeks old. This gives the puppies time to learn how to behave toward other dogs and gives the breeder time to evaluate the puppies’ personalities so she can place each one in just the right home. A bonus is that puppies of this age are more mature and more easily housetrained.
Labrador Retrievers are often categorised in one of two ways: English labs or American labs. The differences are principally behavioural, though there are differences in appearance as well. Behaviorally, English labs tend to be more easily trainable, and are often considered better for non-professional owners to keep as pets or hunting companions. American labs tend to be more energetic and, having been bred to compete in field trials, are better suited for professional owners with more experience and time to devote to training. In terms of appearance, English labs tend to more prominently exhibit the ‘blocky’ heads for which Labrador Retrievers are known, whereas American labs tend to be leaner and longer-legged.
We became inseparable. Our relationship was made stronger through isolation and the pressures of life on that Outer Hebridean island. When it all became too much for me, Inca and I would retreat together. When, a year later I emerged into the real world, we were a team.
Some Labs like to get to know new people before becoming their friend. So as your dog grows up, be sure to take him lots of places. Socializing your pup from an early age will help him become comfortable wherever he goes.
Labrador detractors (How is there such a thing? What is wrong with you people?) will say I can’t possibly know that they are the best breed of dog because I have nothing to compare them to, but I’ve known skittish, yappy, excitable, bouncy dogs with short attention spans and know that the solid presence of a slightly-overweight lab brings a type of faithful calm that says: I’m here. I’m here.
Not all of these conditions are detectable in a growing puppy, and it can be hard to predict whether an animal will be free of these maladies, which is why you must find a reputable breeder who is committed to breeding the healthiest animals possible. They should be able to produce independent certification that the parents of the dog (and grandparents, etc.) have been screened for these defects and deemed healthy for breeding. That’s where health registries come in.
