How do Labrador Retrievers look like?What are Labrador retriever characteristics? I know you will all say very handsome, very sweet and each one see his Labrador the best-looking dog:)but here I want to talk to you about their characteristics.
How many colors are Labrador retrievers?
The pure breed Labradors are only 3 colours: yellow, black and chocolate. Sometimes we can see almost red colour or polar white but these are just variation from the yellow colour.
Mixed colour in Labrador retrievers is not possible. And how you obtain a certain colour?
If you mate two yellow Labradors you will have only yellow labs, no chance for a black or brown. I will not go in the genes thing. I will try to make it simple.
Two brown chocolates will never do black puppies, only yellow and chocolate.
Two black labs can have yellow, chocolate and brown puppies.
Mating a yellow Labrador with a chocolate one we can have all puppies black, yellow and black pups, yellow, black and chocolate, yellow and chocolate puppies, black and chocolate all or puppies chocolate. These are the possibilities.
From mating black Labradors we can have all tree colors puppies.
The tree different colors are associated with different roles. When you choose a puppy, of course, you chose the color you like but the yellow labs are usually, used as guide dogs for blind people and generally therapy dogs, black Labrador for hunting and chocolates for pet homes and show ring.
End some other details about their coat. Our furry friends in the past had to be protected from the cold water when they help the fisherman to find their fish so Labradors have a double coat, water resistant, straight and short.
What are their size and weight?
Labradors are large sized dogs. The males dogs height should be from 56-61cm (22.5-24.5inces) and the females 53-58cm (21.5-23.5 inches). Of course, the height is important only for the show ringsJ we love our friends as they areJ) love doesn’t need perfection.
The males Labrador weight should be 27-36kg (65-80 pounds) and females 25-32 kg (55-70 pounds)
What is their appearance?
Labrador retrievers are strong, sportive dogs, with a broad head and a wide muzzle. They have very friendly eyes that you can’t resist when are begging for food 🙂
The chest extends to the elbows and they have straight strong legs but not heavy. Their body is strong, sturdy but agile.
Labradors years are floppy, sweet, pendant and we have to clean them softly, careful very often with a cotton ball and a veterinarian-approved cleanser.
Their tail is thick, covered with short hair .It is medium length.
With one word…beauties:)
