Black Labrador Retrievers make wonderful family pets and hunting dogs. I personally think black labs are fabulous animals. I saw a woman at the park while attending a concert. She had a very large partly lab mutt. This dog was mostly black lab, but his chest and legs were white with black spots. I asked her if he was part Dalmation, she said no "he's part Shetlon Sheepdog and part lab and he's the best dog I ever had." She was also holding another small dog on her lap and she covered his ears when she complimented the lab. But I kept watching her and her dog throughout the concert and that dog was the most obedient and affectionate dog I've ever witnessed. He also had some other blood line in him as he was about 3.5 or 4 feet high standing on all fours- very large. I can't imagine how much food he must eat!
Actually there are three colors the lab comes in: Yellow, Black and Chocolate. And, you may be aware, there is a new trend called "designer dogs" and there is a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle called a Labradoodle.
I'm hoping that by the end of this article, you also believe that black labs are FAB!
