Labrador puppies – cute little roly poly creatures that you just want to pick and snuggle. Well, at least, that’s how most dog owners feel about their puppies. They are the most popular breed in the United States, and have been holding that ranking, or somewhere close, for quite a while. But this can lead to problems when it comes to breeders. It’s important to be knowledgeable when it comes to buying a new labrador puppy.
When something becomes popular, there is the likelihood of mass production, which unfortunately is the case with many pets. Simply saying, due to the popularity of the Labrador breed dog, a lot of self-proclaimed breeder will eventually come out of their shells. Be wary of breeders, particularly in such popular dogs. One of the problems that you may encounter with professed dog breeders is that, they would usually claim that the puppies that they have which are up for grabs are registered and pedigree, however, they are just faking it. It is very important to see to it that the puppy that you will buy is healthy, full of energy and clean looking so that once you will take it to the veterinarian, everything will turn out just fine, but in the case that the newly bought puppy/puppies gets sick or showed some injuries after buying it, then prepare for a return of payment from the breeder.
Labradors come in three colors – yellow, black, and chocolate, to which there can be seen many variations. From creamy colored to almost red in yellow labs, and silvery to a charcoal color in chocolate Labrador puppies, there is a lot of potential when it comes to color. Nevertheless, despite of the three different variations of Labrador puppies when it comes to their color, there are really some colors which are quite hard to find, however there are also color which you can easily purchase in different trusted breeders. You can ask a breeder what color of puppies are available, as Labrador retriever puppies of various colors can be born in one litter.
