About Labrador Retrievers
When you’re talking about the world’s most popular dogs, Labrador Retrievers have got to be in the running—they’re definitely America’s favorite! And why not? As loyal, intelligent and friendly dogs, what’s not to love about Labradors?
Easy to Groom
Owners of Labrador Retrievers adore the breed’s super short hair, which makes grooming your puppy an absolute breeze.
Labrador Retrievers aren’t just popular because of their great personalities—they’re also some of the cutest dogs ever!
Your Lab probably won’t make a very good guard dog...unless you want your puppy to attack strangers with hugs and kisses.
Labs are forever young, and play like puppies throughout their entire lives—even when their fur is turning white.
Labrador Retrievers are intelligent dogs, renowned both for their smarts and their obedience in learning new tricks.
Fun for the Whole Family
Labs are one of the most iconic family pets. These pooches are the perfect match for both adults and children.
We only work with ethical breeders and companies who pass our ultra-strict vetting process. Come meet the elite 10% who’ve taken our Breeder Pledge.
How Uptown Works
Uptown Puppies is a matchmaking service that helps connect puppy-loving families like yours with carefully vetted, ethical breeders and companies across the nation. We’re here to help you meet the dog of your dreams.
Step 1: Application
Tell us a little about yourself and what type of pup you’re looking for. Discover the perfect pooch based on breed, size, gender, color and disposition.
Step 2: MatchMaker
We’ll scour the Uptown breeder network to find current and upcoming litters from vetted breeders and companies that match your profile and needs.
Step 3: Connect
We’ll help you connect directly with your matches via call, video chat or direct meeting where you can finally meet the dog of your dreams.
The Uptown process is totally free (and always will be). Are you ready to meet the ultimate puppy from an ethical, trustworthy breeder?
Still have questions about Labradors? We have answers.
As with all puppies, breeders offer Labrador Retriever Seattle and Labrador Retriever Washington in a wide range of prices. Cost depends on many factors such as breeder experience, puppy coat color, dog pedigree and more. As part of our MatchMaker process, we’ll help you connect with breeders who fit your price range—so don’t sweat it.
Absolutely. Families are always welcome to pick up their puppy in person with their Labrador Retriever breeders in Washington state, but we know that’s not always possible. Breeders and businesses in the Uptown network can ship your puppy by air to your nearest major airport (outside of Alaska and Hawaii), meaning you’re closer to your dream dog than you might think!
We screen breeders based on a variety of factors such as experience, breeding knowledge, animal care, facility cleanliness and quality, and much more. Less than 10% of applicants to our network are approved, meaning that every company or breeder you see on our site has been thoroughly vetted beforehand. Check out the Breeder Pledge for more details.
With the internet, finding a puppy is easier than ever—but finding a healthy, well-bred puppy is harder than ever. The internet makes it easy for dishonest breeders to take advantage of buyers, and we wanted to even the playing field for our fellow dog-lovers. Our job is to connect you with humane, ethical breeders and help you find your dream dog.
Puppy mills are like filthy, cramped factories that produce litter after litter of unhealthy puppies. Puppy mill dogs are much more likely to suffer from debilitating genetic and behavioral issues, more likely to require expensive veterinary care, and more likely to pass away years younger than average.
With the Uptown network, adorable Labrador Retriever puppies are never far away. Start your search by completing our MatchMaker process below, and we’ll comb the Uptown network for upcoming and current litters that match your preferences. After that, you’re steps away from finding the dog of your dreams!
MatchMaker is great for two reasons—it helps you weed out bad Washington state Labrador Retriever breeders, and it helps you find puppies that fit your home, personality, preferences and price range. All you have to do is tell us about your dream Lab, and we’ll connect you with our best matches from our vetted network of humane breeders. And it’s free.
Strict vetting processes, a legally binding Breeder Pledge, and our MatchMaker system combine to give you a simple, easy path to finding your ideal puppy. Together, Uptown and our thousands of customers are helping to eliminate puppy mills and inhumane breeding practices. Just take a peek at some of our reviews and recent puppy alumni.
