    They are the same breed. Labrador is short for labrador Retriever.

    Um I think they are the same. If not, the labrador retriever probably retrieves sticks and toys more then a regular labrador. Have fun with your new dog!

    A retriver is a ‘type’ of dog - like terrier.

    There are a number of different types of retriever - labrador, golden, flat coated, curly coated etc….

    They were originally working dogs who were bred for their ability to retrieve!

    Whilst terriers were bred to terrorise! )

    Same breed Labrador and Labrador Retriever are the same dog. Lab, Labrador are just the short vocabulary. The are two style of Labs, English and the American same breed same registry the look different and the American type has more energy as they are use for the field trials. The English are stocky with a "block type head. And you will see that style in the confirmation ring.

    They are the same breed. However, you can get labs that are working lines, pet lines and show lines. Working labs can be hard work and need to be given a job to do at all times. Make sure you find a good breeder - read up on puppy mills etc. to make sure you do not fall into that trap and remember pet shops source their pups from the same place, which results in cruelty and poor pups. Look at the kennel club website.
