The Labrador Retriever, despite his name, did not come from Labrador, but from Newfoundland. The area was populated with small water dogs, who, when bred with Newfoundlands, produced a breed referred to as the St. John’s Water Dog, a prototype for the Lab of today. Early in the 19th century, the Earl of Malmesbury reputedly saw one of the dogs of this type and had it imported; in 1830, the noted British sportsman Colonel Hawker referred to the Lab as "the best for any kind of shooting...generally black and no bigger than a Pointer, very fine in legs, with short, smooth hair...is extremely quick running, swimming, and fighting...and their sense of smell is hardly to be credited."

I haven't read the rest of this thread yet, but they say that people sometimes pick dogs that resemble themselves, even if it's unconscious. Whenever I watch dog shows, I admit it that I admire the longer haired dogs like the Afghan Hounds and the like more than the shorter haired breeds. But I have to admit that I get the biggest kick out of looking for Fox Terriers in the shows to compare my dog to them. You just don't see Fox Terriers outside the show ring, and it's a shame. They're hilarious dogs - they're one of the main breeds that go into Jack Russel/Parsons Russel terriers. Not quite suited for the average family looking for a family dog - better for the family with the ADD hyperactive kids who have more energy than they know what to do with. Sonic would have been a perfect dog for me as a kid. :D Dogs with Big Hair

All dogs with skin (which is all of them) produce dander. So there is no such thing as dog, big or small, that doesn't produce it and is therefore totally safe for allergy-sufferers. However, because small dogs have less skin, they produce less dander. It is also thought that breeds who are low hair shedders also shed less dander.
