About Labrador Retrievers
Labrador Retrievers seem to have everything going for them. These lucky dogs are super smart, obedient, loving, loyal, playful, and downright adorable. Maybe that’s why they’ve become one of the most popular breeds in the entire world!
Easy to Groom
Grooming your Lab puppy’s fine, short coat is super simple, and hair cleanup is a breeze, compared to dogs with thicker shedding coats.
Sure, Labrador Retrievers have endearing personalities—but these pups are totally cute, too! They’re as huggable as can be.
Labrador Retrievers are friendly and affectionate, making them the perfect companion for your outdoor romps and afternoon naps alike.
Labrador Retrievers are energetic dogs, and never get tired of running and playing—especially their favorite game, fetch!
The brainy Labrador Retriever will make training a breeze, whether you’re teaching basic obedience or more complex tricks.
Fun for the Whole Family
Whether your family is big or small, Labrador Retrievers are the ultimate family dogs and get along great with everyone!

Still have questions about American Labrador Retriever breeders Connecticut or Labrador Retriever puppies in Connecticut? We have answers.
When you browse puppy listings online, you’ll likely see very similar looking puppies listed for different prices. That’s because factors like pedigree, breeder experience, and even coat color all go into puppy pricing. Luckily, there are tons of breeders in our network—and we’ll help match you with one who fits your ideal price range, too.
Labrador breeders and businesses in the Uptown network are total pros when it comes to shipping puppies, and can send your new best friend to your nearest major airport (outside of Hawaii and Alaska). And yes, your pup will be flying up in the cabin, not crammed down in the baggage hold.
Our team is constantly reviewing applications from new breeders and puppy businesses, but the truth is that less than 10% of applicants have what it takes to pass our stringent vetting process. What do we look for in a partner? Well...experience, love of dogs, top-notch facilities and legal compliance just to name a few. Peek at our Breeder Pledge for more info!
You’ve got almost unlimited options when it comes to adopting a puppy online, but it’s hard to really be sure that you’re getting a healthy puppy from a reputable breeder. We created Uptown to give great breeders a place to shine—and to give families a fast, easy, and fun way to find their dream dog.
Puppy mills are almost like puppy factories, where profit is king and the welfare of your puppy is rarely a priority. Puppy mill dogs live short lives full of behavioral issues, health problems and more—not to mention the countless, costly vet visits. Luckily, there are NO puppy mills or unethical breeders in the Uptown network.
No matter where you live, it’s easy to meet your dream puppy when you go through Uptown. With our MatchMaker process, you’ll have access to many of the nation’s top breeders and puppy businesses at your fingertips, screened and vetted—and with shipping to all of the lower 48 states.
MatchMaker is our simple but powerful method of matching customers with breeders, businesses, and puppy litters that perfectly match your preferences and expectations from your ideal puppy. With just a short questionnaire, you’ll get connected to our top recommendations, ready to meet your dream dog.
With online puppy scams getting out of control, it’s hard to vet breeders before you buy. Businesses and breeders in the Uptown network love puppies just as much as you do—read over some of our glowing reviews and meet our Puppy Alumni to see the difference a little love can make.
