The history

Labrador was recognised in England as a Kennel Club breed in 1903. They were  first registered by the AKC in the United States of America in 1917.  Originally called a St. John’s Dog or lesser Newfoundland dog. The breed was in Newfoundland in the 1700’s and imported to England beginning the early 1800’s.  Although the Labrador’s exact origin unknown, some speculate the Greater Newfoundland dog or the French St. Hubert’s dog is part of the cross that made the St. John’s dog.
