|The site provided is good but there are some errors. There is actually a large difference in the English and American labs. Most obvious difference is size. English labs are a bit shorter and a lot more muscular looking. Most Americans are taller and don't quite have as muscular build. English Labs also come is a few more colors than Americans, there are the traditional Yellow, Black and Chocolate, and then there are also Red and Silver. English Labs will also have a more "Blocky" looking head. In addition to looks American Labs are more of a show dog than a working dog, in England the Labs are used in field trials, although it is becoming more popular with American Labs as well. Both the English and American Labs make great family dogs, they are extremly loyal and love to play. They make great hunting companions and are comfortable in water and strong swimmers. They are also great with kids and other dogs.
A great breeder with an Excellent reputation is the Pro K9 Academy in California. Susan and Ken Welch run the academy and have several pure breed English labs of their own, I am very greatfull for the training they have given to both my dogs. On occasion they have a litter of English Labs available with Excellent blood lines and all the papers, history of the Sire and the Dame, disposition, you name it. Their website is: www.prok9academy.com
I am sure they will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have as well, they were a huge help to me.
