Labradors are truly man’s true best friend—these lively, loving pups make great dogs for active families. because they always want to be in on the action!

The Labrador Retriever lifespan is similar to that of other large breeds at 10-12 years.

The most oldest Labrador lived to be 27 years of age.

There are two key categories of factors that impact your Labrador’s life expectancy.
