About Labrador Retrievers
The Labrador Retriever is insanely popular. In fact, it’s one of the most popular breeds on the planet! These obedient, affectionate, smart pups embody all of the best values we search for in a dog, a companion, and a lifelong friend.
Easy to Groom
Labrador Retriever owners love the breed’s short coats, which make grooming a breeze. Talk about low maintenance!
These dogs aren’t just popular for their sweet personalities. They also happen to be some of the most adorable puppies around!
While Labrador Retrievers definitely don’t make the best guard dogs, they are great at giving plenty of hugs and snuggles.
Your Labrador Retriever will be a puppy at heart, even when its hair is turning white. These dogs are as playful as they come!
Labrador Retrievers are renowned for their intelligence and obedience, making them respond well to training.
Fun for the Whole Family
The Labrador is an iconic family dog. These pups get along great with adults and kids of all ages.

Still have questions about Labradors? We have 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.
Looking for Labrador Retriever puppies near me? Begin our MatchMaker process below! All you have to do is tell us a little bit about your dream pooch, and we’ll use that information to scour our network for nearby breeders and businesses who match your preferences perfectly. Before you know it, you’ll be adopting your new best friend!
MatchMaker is how we help match great families with great puppies. After telling us a little about your ideal puppy—using preferences like gender, color and breed—we’ll comb our network for breeders who may have matching litters. It’s really fast, really simple, and really free—and it’s the best way to meet your dream puppy.
There are countless puppy scams out there, and online, it’s tough to tell the legitimate breeders from the bad ones. We help you screen out the dishonest breeders using our strict vetting process and Breeder Pledge, only allowing the truly elite to join our network. Will you help us end puppy mills and inhumane backyard breeders?
