Like people, some Labrador Retriever puppies seem to have nothing but good luck, while others have nothing but bad luck. That is, of course, if you believe in luck.
Labrador Retriever puppies in Louisiana have been among the latter group in the past few years. Hurricane Katrina was a disaster for people and their pets. Labrador Retriever puppies were some of those pets.
A cry went out from the Labrador Retriever Club, pleading for people to foster the stranded and abandoned Labrador Retriever puppies and dogs. Classified ads in cities far from the Hurricane zone sought homes for Labrador Retriever puppies that had been found as strays on the streets of devastated towns.
In the years following the hurricane, Labrador Retriever puppies in Louisiana continue to be plagued with natural disasters: flooding, tornadoes, etc. Yet, Louisiana is a good place for Labrador Retrievers.
Labrador Retriever puppies in Louisiana have plenty of opportunity to become good gun dogs. Louisiana’s land is rich in wetlands where dogs can be trained to retrieve. If you get a puppy from Louisiana, its sire and dam should be hunters, excelling in field and hunt trials.
