About Labrador Retrievers
Were you looking for the ultimate four-legged friend? Then you might be looking for a Labrador Retriever! Labs are one of the most popular and beloved breeds in the entire world, and it’s easy to see why.
Easy to Groom
Yes, Labs do shed—a lot. But their fine, short coats make them really easy to groom, brush and bathe.
To us (and many others), Labrador Retrievers are one of the most adorable breeds in the entire world.
Even with strangers, Labrador Retrievers are super friendly with everyone they meet. Sure, they’re not great guard dogs—but they love to cuddle!
Lab puppies never seem to grow up completely—these dogs are young at heart and always up for a game of fetch.
Labrador Retrievers possess all the qualities you need in an avid canine student—obedience, eagerness to please, and intelligence.
Fun for the Whole Family
One of the biggest reasons that Labs are so popular is because they are one of the best family dogs around—and they love kids.
Picking an amazing Labrador Retriever puppy shouldn’t be hard. We only partner with businesses and breeders who pass our stringent vetting process—meet some of our friends below.

Still have questions about Labrador Retriever puppies Austin Texas or Labrador Retriever breeders Austin Texas? We have 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.
