Some people believe labs come from Canada, while others believe Greenland, England or Newfoundland. I don't believe they come from England or Canada. DogFancy is featuring them for their June issue....but with so many different "options" they could be wrong, LOL.

Any breed of dog can bite. They've all got teeth, meant to rip flesh. But just because they can doesn't mean they will. Sure Labs have attacked people, but not all labs are untrained, as most all aggressive dogs are. My lab hasn't ever bitten a human. Ever. I think in the eight years she's lived with us, she may have growled around five times. And only when she was extremely annoyed or it's a play growl.

I have never heard of a mean lab in my life. I'm sure they are out there. But my husband got her because of they're exceptionally good temperment. He knew the mother a little, not the father but the father grew up with children of all different ages. My Hannah doesn't mind having her ears and tail messed with she's very tolerable of anything.

Most Labs are very tolerant, making them a very popular breed. We always joke that you could play tug-o-war with May's ears and she'd just sit there wagging her tail .

Yeah, Hannah's the same. Ofcourse she then thinks our other dogs like when she bites and tugs at their ears then too. She's very playful, more so with our other dogs than us. She just likes to cuddle and sleep with us.

My Canaan Dog mix, Colby, enjoys wrestling with Mayberry. I remember one time, she was attacking May, nipping at her, and May just sat there for a few minutes dealing with it. Finally the Lab got annoyed, and, with ease, pinned Colby to the ground and sat on her, LOL! Colby was squirming and yipping at her and May just sat there on top of her, sniffing the air.

That's funny. I'm hoping my Hannah will be like that too. It's too hard to tell what she will be like now she's WAY to hyper.

The only difference I have every noticed is that English-bred Labs tend to be heavier in the neck and shoulders and gain weight easily. American-bred Labs are more evenly proportioned. They're all Labs, though, so don't worry!

I wasn't really worried. It was just some people told me that the English labs were calmer than American labs.
