Fox Red Labradors are a rare-colored version of the Labrador Retriever. As with the Silver and Charcoal Labs, they are currently not recognized by the AKC based on the Fox Red color. They may, however, be registered as a purebred Yellow Labrador Retriever as the dark color of their coat is not a disqualifying factor. The beautiful, eye-catching color of the Labrador is a rare find and continues to become more popular.
There is a reason that year after year; the Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the United States. The history of the Labrador Retriever dates back to the early 1800’s in Newfoundland, just off the Atlantic coast of Canada. Todays “Lab” is a product of the breed being imported to England by the First and Second Dukes of Malmesbury and the 5th and 6th Dukes of Buccleuch as Water Fowl Retrievers. Had these families not played a vital part in the continuation of the breed, the loving and affectionate Lab we have all grown to love may not exist today. Common uses for today’s Labs are as Service Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs, Hunting, and by far the most common, a Loving Companion breed.
