Labrador Retriever are part of the water dog family. That includes Labs, Golden Retrievers and Chesapeake Retrievers. They are all great family dogs because they are very gentle with children and very smart. This video shows both attributes.

I have had two Golden Retrievers and they both lived for our love. They wanted nothing more than to please us. My neighbors had Labs and they had these same attributes. This video features a Yellow Lab trying to make friends with a little boy with Downs Syndrome. The little boy wants not part of the lab at first but the lab does not give up. He gently makes friends with the boy. This video will touch your heart.
