Labrador Retrievers originated on the coast of Newfoundland in the 17th century. They were trained to bring in the fishing nets through icy waters. Thier short, sturdy limbs and short dense coats made them ideal water dogs. At this time they were known as St. John's water dogs. They were imported to England where breeding continued, and by 1900 were recognized as the Labrador breed.
