Did you know that different colored labs can be born in same litter?
It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that I adore Labrador Retrievers. My fondness for them went up exponentially when we adopted our pup, Django, last year from New York’s North Shore Animal Center.
She is the perfect blend of friend, companion, and fun for our crazy family. But I’m not the only one who has a special affection for Labs. In fact, the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds for families year after year.
If you are considering a medium to large-sized dog to introduce into your family, here are 10 reasons why Labs are just awesome:
Their coats are incredibly easy to care for, and they only require a bath here and there. No hair cuts or any extra grooming required, and their fur dries off in minutes because their thick outer coat naturally repels water.
