Among the many pets, dogs occupy a place of prime importance.  They may be security guards at home because it is very particular about their territorial domain. But most importantly it is one of the most loyal pet one could ever have.

But certainly, they are dogs that are not so loyal and well-worn and look for some people. In addition, as many in fact, dogs can be very clear in terms of her appearance. For dog lovers would really want to show dogs or intelligent dog. With these properties mentioned the very first dog breed that hits the mind is a Labrador retriever, or “lab”. There are primarily two types of variants in Labrador Retrievers. This is the English Labrador Retriever and Labrador Retriever American. Although some will say there is no as such distinction between an English and American labs, but there really are significant differences between the two kinds.

    The author’s knowledge of Labs – specific strains, their appearance, temperament, & characteristics is non-existent, which resulted in an incredibly inaccurate article.  I won’t spend time challenging every statement, but will say that I’m unfamiliar with “ferocious” American Labs weighing 70-120 kg = 154.2 to 264.5 lbs or “quiet” English Labs weighing 60-85 kg = 132.2 to 187.2 lbs.   And that’s coming from the Mom of a 65 lb, English-strain Black Lab who barks when the wind blows & a 45 lb, hi-octane – but quiet, American Black Lab-Chow mix. 

    I would strongly suggest the author (& I use that term loosely) keep their day job!
