Black Labrador Figurine | Mini Black Lab | Black Labrador Replica - 3.75in. x 3in. - 1 Piece (sl253429)
This is a black labrador figurine from Safari Ltd.(r). All labrador retrievers (black, chocolate, and yellow) come not from Labrador in the far east of Canada, but from Newfoundland, an island to the south of Labrador. On the islands, small water dogs were bred with medium sized Newfoundlands, leading to the labrador breed so beloved today. Many were imported to England for use as gun dogs, a job many black labs still perform today. The breed was acknowledged by the American Kennel Club in 1917, just before the end of World War One. The black labrador, or black lab, was bred for hunting purposes and is a very active and intelligent dog. Standing 21 to 24 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing between 55 and 80 pounds when fully grown, the black lab is classified as a large breed. He has a short coat. This black labrador replica is made out of hard plastic that has been hand painted with fine detailing for a realistic look. The plastic is BPA/phthalate/lead free. This mini black lab figure is realistic, educational, and fun, and is suitable for a range of interests, including collectors, enthusiasts, teachers, and kids. Admire it on a shelf, use it in the classroom, or simply enjoy playing with it. Sold as one piece per package that measures approximately 3.75in. x 3in. For ages 3 and up.
