Labrador retriever

a medium-sized, strongly built gun dog with broad head, drop ears, thick tapered tail, and short, very dense coat in black, yellow or chocolate. The medium length tail has a thick base and is covered in the thick coat, but not feathered; sometimes called an 'otter' tail. The breed is predisposed to inherited cataracts, progressive retinal atrophy, cystinuria, hemophilia A, osteochondrosis and hip dysplasia.
