The Labrador Retriever is sweet, gentle and loving. No wonder it’s one of America’s most popular dogs. This puppy is prized as an intelligent and gentle family pet. The Labrador’s social and obedient nature, combined with the cleverness inherited from their hunting lineage, makes this breed a favorite choice as a therapy or assistance dog.

The Yellow Labrador Retriever has a long and storied history in North America. Their ancestors were first bred as a fishing dog on the chilly, northern island of Newfoundland, now part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The Labrador was bred from the St. John’s water dog, a large and hearty fishing dog bred by the settlers of Newfoundland as far back as the 16th century. In the 19th century, this breed transitioned from a fishing dog into a specialized gun dog used for hunting and retrieving game.

By the early 20th century, Yellow Labradors were much a much darker butterscotch yellow. Over the latter half of the 20th century, breeders began selecting Labs for a lighter color. Eventually, Yellow Labs were bred to meet the standards of the lighter yellow we see in modern Yellow Labradors.

The Lab was first recognized by the AKC in 1917 and grouped as Sporting.

Yellow Lab Puppies Temperament

The Yellow Lab is a friendly and outgoing breed of dog that is well-suited to life in a family home. They are good-natured and even-tempered, which makes them a popular choice for families with young children.

Labs are known for their enthusiastic tail-wagging and their boundless energy, and they will often approach strangers with a wagging tail and a friendly face. However, they can also be boisterous and excitable, so they may not be the best choice for those looking for a calm and quiet dog.

Since the Lab was bred as a hunting dog, this lovable giant will need lots of vigorous, outdoor exercise to keep him calm and centered. Yellow Labs are usually a big fan of fetching and chasing games, and enjoy a good romp in the yard with their family. Yellow Labradors also enjoy walks with their master, and are good swimmers that enjoy lakes, rivers, pools, and the beach.

Overall, the Yellow Lab is a friendly, energetic breed that makes an ideal companion for those who are looking for an active lifestyle.

Yellow Lab Puppies Health Considerations

Though generally very healthy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 10 to 12 years — our Yellow Labs for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Yellow Lab puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones. Yellow Lab puppies are at somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Progressive Retinal Atrophy
  •    Cataracts
  •    Hip & Elbow Dysplasia
  •    Obesity

Allergies are also a common issue for Labs. If your dog is constantly scratching or seems to have irritated skin, they may be allergic to something in their environment – like pollen or dust mites. Your vet can help you identify the source of the allergy and recommend the best course of treatment.

Yellow Labs are also prone to ear infections due to their long, floppy ears. Be sure to check your dog’s ears regularly and clean them as needed to prevent infection. And if you notice your dog shaking their head or scratching their ears more than usual, make an appointment with the vet right away.

Finding a Yellow Lab puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Yellow Lab Puppies Coat & Coat Care

The Yellow Lab is a beautiful dog breed with a thick, glossy coat. The coat is typically yellow, but can also be ranging in color from light cream to fox red.

When it comes to coat care, the Yellow Lab is relatively low-maintenance. The coat does not require trimming or special haircuts, although it does need to be brushed regularly to prevent tangles and mats. Labs also enjoy spending time outside, so regular baths are generally not necessary unless the dog gets particularly dirty. For those who want to keep their Yellow Lab looking their best, regular grooming sessions will help to maintain the coat’s healthy appearance.
