Breed Spotlight: Meet the Labrador

Our breed spotlight series begins with the Labrador Retriever, recently voted the nation’s favourite dog breed. Originating from the coastal regions of Newfoundland, the Labrador Retriever was bred to be both a friendly companion and a working dog, helping fisherman retrieve nets and lost lines. Today, the breed is still as loyal and hardworking and often works as assistance and rescue dogs.
