Labradors are the most popular dogs in the U.S., according to the American Kennel Club.
They’re versatile dogs that make great service animals or home companions and are useful helpers on hunting expeditions. Labradors with yellow, dark brown or black coats weigh between 55 and 75 lbs.
The even disposition of male Labradors makes them ideal family-friendly pets.
Male Labradors are favored as helpful, socially well-adapted and loyal companions, especially by older and disabled persons.
