14 Interesting Facts About Labradors

#4 Many people consider Labs to be a hyperactive breed.

While Lab puppies are indeed very lively, most will calm down a little over time. However, they usually remain fairly active throughout their lives.

#5 While Labrador Retrievers aren’t known for being runaways, with the right motivation—like a special smell or something tasty—even a Lab will bolt. Make sure your Lab has an up-to-date dog tag and microchip.

#6 The Lab is America’s #1 dog breed, meaning many people breed Labs who are more interested in filling the demand for Lab puppies than breeding healthy dogs that have good temperaments.

To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, a mass breeder, or from a pet store. Look for a reputable breeder who tests their breeding dogs to make sure they don't have any genetic diseases that could be passed on to the puppies and that they have solid characters.
