The Labrador Retriever originated in Newfoundland, Canada. The earliest examples of the Labrador breed were black and medium in size, with significant skills in retrieving game and were extremely helpful when working with fishermen. The dogs were excellent swimmers, having no problem swimming in the icy waters of the North. While the breed died out in Newfoundland, many Labradors had been taken to England in the 1800s. These dogs, as well as other crossbreeds, were able to evolve and earned a reputation for upland game retrieving.
The Boxer is thought to be a descendant of the Tibetan Mastiff, while other theories put him as a distant relative of the Dogue de Bordeaux. Prized as a hunter and fighter, he was thankfully allowed to move on to bigger and better as time went on. A companion, military dog, and even a show dog were this breeds future jobs.
