Have you ever wondered what dog you should get? This article will tell you all about Labradors, Newfoundlands, Beagles, and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
The Labrador Retriever is a good family dog, and if you don't have one you should get one. The males weigh 65-80 lbs. and the females weight 55-70 lbs. The height of the males is roughly 22-24 inches, and the height of the females can reach up to 21-23 inches. Their coat is smooth, short, dense, and straight. Labradors are good at helping disabled people and were originally bred for hunters who needed a dog to retrieve birds.
The “Newfie” is a hard working dog which tends to be very large. The males can weigh around 150 lbs. and females can way about 120 lbs. That is twice the wieight of a Labrador! The average height is 28 inhes tall for the males and 26 inches tall for the females. The coat is thick and straight and colored black, brown, gray, or white with black spots. The American Kennel Club says that Newfoundlands are devoted, patient and sweet.

Some of the common nicknames are “Cav,” “Cavalier”, and “Cavie.” This breed tends to weigh between 11 and 13 lbs. The average height is around 12 to 13 inches. Its average life span is 9 to 14 years. It is common for it to have a silky coat and for its colorings to be black, white, and tan. The American Kennel Club says that these dogs are affectionate, gentle, graceful.
