Description

Labrador retrievers are loving animals who work hard to help their human companions. In this narrative treat for dog lovers, readers will meet Pearl, a black Lab who was trained as a disaster service dog. When a catastrophic earthquake occurred in Haiti in January 2010, Pearl and her handler went to the island country to help search for survivors trapped beneath rubble. Like other Labs, Pearl was focused, energetic, and easy to train, traits that may have come from the breeds ancestors, who got their start helping Canadian fishermen in the 1700s. Today, the loyalty and playful nature of the Labrador retriever has made it the most popular dog breed in the United States. Labrador Retriever: Most Popular is a perfect read for dog lovers that includes amazing, real-life stories about these huge dogs while also recounting the breeds history and how that determined the animals physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet.
