About Labrador Retriever
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Labrador retriever is
originally from Newfoundland Canada and was
brought to England in the early 1800s. The
dog was once known as “St. John's Dogs”,
and is one of the most popular breeds in the
United States. The dog is not from the Labrador
Islands. These dogs were used as retrievers
of fish that fell off the hooks of fishermen
in the icy waters around Canada and also helped
to haul in swimming lines and fishing nets.
They are known as strong swimmers and small
enough to haul small two-man boats. The dog
breed may have been influenced by several
breeds of dogs from France, Portugal and the
native Indians of Canada.
