Chicago: Labrador retriever

The intelligent and friendly labrador retriever is the most popular dog in the United States overall (for the 20th straight year) and a popular breed in many cities, including Chicago. With its yellow, black or chocolate fur, the labrador retriever comes in a few colors and is also very trainable. Just be sure to keep your labrador retriever well-groomed since this breed tends to shed.
