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.

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.

Questions & Answers
Labrador Retriever puppies vary in price, depending on many factors such as breeder experience, coat color, parent pedigree, and more. One of the great things about our MatchMaker process is that we don’t just match you with great breeders—we also match you with puppies that fit your budget!
While you’re always welcome to pick up your puppy in person, breeders in the Uptown network ship to all major airports in the United States except for Hawaii and Alaska. Puppies fly in the cabin (and not down with the luggage), meaning your dream Labrador Retriever is just a quick flight away—even if there are no American Labrador Retriever in San Jose CA.
We get dozens of applications every day from businesses and San Jose Labrador Retriever breeders who wish to join our network. Because of our strict vetting process—which covers breeding facilities, puppy care, breeder experience and more—less than 10% of applicants are approved. Have a look at our Breeder Pledge for more info!
The internet makes it easy for anyone to sell their puppies online. This environment makes it all too easy for dishonest breeders to take advantage of customers, and we’re not OK with that. We’re here to help you avoid the heartbreak that comes with buying a poorly bred puppy, and to help you find a companion you’ll cherish for years to come.
Puppy mills are like factories and prisons, where dishonest breeders churn out hundreds of sick, poorly raised puppies to sell for cheap. Puppy mill dogs develop crippling health and behavioral problems easily, can cost you thousands in added vet bills, and tend to die far too young compared with properly bred animals.
