Don’t Adopt A Labrador Retriever. Here Are 10 Reasons Why

October 27th, 2017

If you’ve ever had or come in contact with a Labrador retriever you’ll know exactly why they’re the most popular breed of dog in America.

Despite the fact that they are a fairly young breed of dog that is believed to have been recognized in the late 1800s, they were voted as America’s favorite breed of dog for 26 years in a row.

The Labrador retriever actually originated from an unofficial breed known at the St. John’s Water Dog, which is now extinct. They got their names from being working dogs in the Labrador Sea. Not only are them extremely intelligent, but they are super friendly, playful, and adorable.

Here are 10 reasons Lab owners wouldn’t want any other dog.

1) They hate to swim

Labrador retrievers have no idea how to do the dog paddle and will never jump at the chance to get wet and swim around.

8) Labrador Retrievers Have No Energy

And sometimes they are so boring that they won’t play. I guess you could say they are the opposite of the Energizer Bunny.
