About Labrador Retrievers
Labrador Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, and for good reason. These loyal, trusting, obedient and affectionate pooches embody all the values we look for in a companion and lifelong friend.
Easy to Groom
The short coat of the Labrador Retriever makes grooming a cinch—perfect for families looking for a low-maintenance puppy.
Labrador Retrievers are some of the cutest dogs on the planet—come on, just try to say no to that face.
Labrador Retrievers are extremely friendly—even with strangers. They might not make the best guard dogs but they LOVE cuddling!
Labrador Retrievers always seem to be puppies at heart, and never get tired of playing games and having a blast with their families.
Labrador Retrievers make training a breeze—these dogs were bred to respond quickly to commands, and they make great students.
Fun for the Whole Family
Labrador Retrievers are outstanding dogs that get along really well with both kids and other animals.

Questions & Answers
The price of a Lab puppy you’ll find online comes down to a number of factors, such as breeder experience, puppy pedigree, coat color, type (American or English), and more. While prices vary, part of our MatchMaker process involves connecting you with breeders and companies who fit your budget, too.
Our network runs from sea to shining sea, but we won’t always have an ideal match for you nearby. Luckily, businesses and breeders in the Uptown network can easily make travel arrangements for your puppy to fly to your closest major airport (excluding Alaska and Hawaii), meaning your dream dog is always within reach.
Countless breeders and businesses have submitted applications to join our network over the years, but we’ve admitted less than 10% of them in order to uphold our strict standards. Take a look at our Breeder Pledge here for more information on how we select and vet our top partners and businesses.
Although the internet is great in that finding a puppy is easier than ever before, we’re alarmed by the number of puppy scams the average family will encounter as they begin their search. We created a network that brings together awesome families, breeders and puppies, bringing an end to unethical breeding and helping you meet the companion of your dreams.
A puppy mill is a dog factory where Labrador Retrievers (and other breeds) are treated like machines and products rather than living animals. When you buy a dog from a mill, you’re running a higher risk that your puppy will get sick, become nervous or more aggressive, cost you thousands in extra vet bills, and even die.
Begin your MatchMaker process below, and we’ll scour our network for matching breeders or businesses with both current and upcoming litters who fit your preferences and expectations for the ultimate dog—whether you’re looking for an elusive silver Labrador Retriever, an English Lab, or whatever else you can think of.
MatchMaker helps us connect the right families with the right breeders and businesses to find the right dogs. Using a handful of questions to learn more about your puppy preferences, we’re able to connect you with our top recommendations to help you find your dream doggy with zero headaches and zero hassles.
We know just how common online puppy scams are, and we want to make it easy and fun for families to find happy puppies from ethical breeders. Just take a peek at some of our Puppy Alumni and reviews from recent customers, and you’ll see what a huge difference it makes to breed dogs with love and care.
