The Black Labrador Retriever is a popular breed of dog that is admired for its friendly temperament and loyalty. The breed originated in Newfoundland, Canada, where it was used as a working dog for fishermen. Labs were bred to be strong swimmers and have webbed feet, which helped them to assist in hauling in nets of fish. The original Labs were black in color, and this remains the most common color for the breed today.

Black Labs are intelligent and quick learners, which makes them excellent companions for families. They are also active and energetic, and need plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy. Thanks to their many wonderful qualities, Black Labs have become one of the most popular dog breeds in the world.

Black Lab Puppies Health Considerations

Though generally very healthy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 10 to 12 years — our Black Labs for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Black Lab puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Black Lab puppies are at somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •   Progressive Retinal Atrophy
  •   Cataracts
  •   Hip & Elbow Dysplasia

Some of the most common health concerns for Black Labs include hip and elbow dysplasia, allergies, and exercise-induced collapse. Hip and elbow dysplasia are both hereditary conditions that can cause joint pain and mobility issues. Allergies are relatively common in dogs, and Black Labs are no exception. Symptoms can include itchiness, redness, and hair loss. Exercise-induced collapse is a relatively rare condition that can be triggered by strenuous activity. Symptoms include weakness, dizziness, and collapse. While these health concerns can be daunting, many of them can be effectively managed with proper care.

Finding a Black Lab puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Black Lab Puppies Coat & Coat Care

The Black Lab is a versatile breed, prized for their hardworking nature and lovable disposition. They are also one of the most popular breeds in the United States, in part due to their beautiful black coat. The Labrador’s coat is thick and weather-resistant, making them well-suited for life in colder climates. And while the coat does require some maintenance, it is relatively easy to care for. Weekly brushing will help to remove dead hair and keep the coat looking shiny and healthy. Labs also benefit from occasional baths, which will help to remove any dirt or debris that has become trapped in their fur. With proper care, a Black Lab’s coat will be the envy of all your friends and family.
