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
Labrador puppy price depends on many factors. Some of the most common are coat color, pedigree, and breeder experience—meaning you may see otherwise similar-looking puppies listed for different prices. When you begin your MatchMaker questionnaire, part of what we do is match you with breeders and businesses who fit your budget, too.
Companies and Lab breeders in the Uptown network are familiar with shipping puppies all over the country—in fact, most families choose to have their pooch shipped instead of picking them up in person. Puppies can be flown in the cabin to your nearest major airport, in any state except for Alaska and Hawaii.
Our team is constantly receiving and reviewing breeder and company applications to join our network, but our strict vetting process means that fewer than 10% of applicants make it through. We look at factors like breeder experience, legal compliance, animal care, and much more—find out more details at our Breeder Pledge.
You have nearly unlimited options when it comes to finding a puppy online, but it’s tough to guarantee that the breeder or puppy you choose is truly who they say they are. We created a place where families can easily connect with loving, humane breeders and businesses, and where finding a great dog is easy.
Puppy mills are basically factories that produce litter upon litter of puppies. These dogs are raised in horrible conditions—mills are 100% focused on making a profit, and care nothing for the health and wellbeing of their animals. When you buy a mill dog, expect to pay an average of $5k in extra vet bills during the short life of your dog.
With Uptown Puppies, your dream Labrador is a lot closer than you might think. Once you begin your MatchMaker process, we’ll help connect you with our top choices for breeders and Lab businesses who have litters that match your interests and criteria. From there, you’re just a step away from bringing home your dream dog.
MatchMaker is the system we created to make sure dogs are going to homes where they’ll be a perfect fit—and likewise, to help families find the perfect dog. Using your answers from our simple questionnaire, we’ll be able to send you your best matches for companies and breeders near you, making your search for a puppy quick and simple.
With so many puppy mills and dishonest breeders out there, it’s tough to screen before you buy. Breeders and businesses in our network love dogs as much as you do—take a peek at our reviews and Puppy Alumni and you’ll see the difference that ethical breeding and a little love can make.
