The Labrador Retriever, despite his name, did not come from Labrador, but from Newfoundland. Labs, as we know them today, were developed in Britain from the excellent water dogs of nineteenth-century Newfoundland Island. During the war, the Labrador served as a mine detector, then as a guide dog and police dog. Intelligent, and devoted, Labs are good with children and make prized pets.
