    DefaultLooking For The Perfect Lab

    Im having a hard time finding the right breeder for me. I want a "sexy" Hunting lab but most of the field kennels don't meet my standard, neither do the show kennels. Im looking for a breeder who's dogs are breed to hunt but have a stockier build without looking "Fat". i've found a breeder in the UK (Graham Roberts, Riversway Gundogs) but am wondering if there are any breeders like him in the U.S. (preferably in the Southeast). Thanks!!

    Last time I checked, "Sexy" was not in the breed standard.

    Many conformation (bench) breeders produce dogs perfectly capable of hunting. Your best place to start is with your nearest Labrador breed club.

    Re Sexy: Just get a lab with a good hunting back ground and dress it in a negligee.

    What do you mean 'Sexy'? I have never thought of a dog in those terms and it makes me a bit uncomfortable.

    There are so many different ways to respond to this first time poster. At this point, I'll just let it ride. Do you want a good looking hunting dog? Something to...whatever?" Please carefully expand on what you want.

    Umm... not even sure where to begin. Can't say I've ever seen the word "sexy" used to refer to a labrador retriever.

    Would love to see the OP return and expand further on what he is looking for in this dog.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    You took the words right out of my mouth.
