This album is dedicated to the Labs that are bred by, owned by, and loved by, Seifert Labradors.
Did you know that Labs have webbed feet and Otter tails? Their webbed feet are needed to propel them through the water while their Otter tail acts as a rudder steering them in the direction they wish to travel.
Did you know that Lab puppies eyes are a Blue-Grey when they first open? Their eye color will continually change as they grow and mature into varying shades of Brown as adults.
Did you know that adult Labs do not have Blue eyes? Their eye color should be brown in black and yellow Labradors, and brown or hazel in chocolates. Black, or yellow eyes give a harsh expression and are undesirable.
Did you know that a Labs coat is a distinctive feature of the Labrador Retriever? It should be short, straight and very dense, giving a fairly hard feeling to the hand. The Labrador should have a soft, weather-resistant undercoat that provides protection from water, cold and all types of ground cover. And, a slight wave down the back is permissible.
Did you know that the AKC (American Kennel Club) only recognizes 3 official Labrador colors; black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable. White hairs from aging or scarring are not to be misinterpreted as brindling. Black--Blacks are all black. A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog. Chocolate--Chocolates can vary in shade from light to dark chocolate. Chocolate with brindle or tan markings is a disqualification.
Did you know that Labs love water and are retrievers by nature? Labrador Retrievers, originally from Newfoundland, were initially used in work alongside fisherman, helping to pull in nets and catch fish that escaped from fishing lines. After being crossed with Setters, Spaniels and other Retrievers, the Labrador Retriever honed its skills as a true retriever. From this point in the breed's history, "Labs," as they are affectionately called, were bred primarily to perform as an efficient retriever of game, with a stable temperament suitable for a variety of activities beyond hunting.
Did you know that The Labrador Retriever is one of the prime breeds selected as guide and rescue dogs?
Now you ask...is a Labrador retriever right for you? The Lab is an ideal sporting and family dog, the Labrador Retriever thrives as part of an active family or as a trusted hunting companion. A double-coated breed which sheds seasonally, regular grooming keeps his coat at its water-resistant best. Because of his even temperament and trainability millions of Americans own a Labrador Retriever as a pet.
