Height And Weight
The size of a dog will have an influence on the kind of care and attention the dog requires, so this is definitely something you want to know before adding a new four legged member to your family. So, what is the average weight for an English Lab?
The English Lab is a relatively large dog breed. The average male English Lab has a height of 22.5 to 24.5 inches, while the average female will stand between 21.5 to 23.5 inches.
The English Lab is also generally heavier than the American Lab, with the average male weighing between 65 and 80 lbs. Females are slightly smaller and will weigh between 55 and 70 lbs.
The English Lab has a very unique look that most people will recognize easily.
The pooch is characterized by a handsome, well chiseled head, large, kind eyes, folded ears, a strong neck, a deep and broad chest, an athletic body, powerful and muscled legs, and a thick and heavy tail that points downwards.
Having originated from the freezing climates of Newfoundland, and with a history of having been a fisherman’s companion, the English Lab developed a thick, waterproof double coat. This is one of their key differences with the American Lab, who usually have a single coat.
The coat of your English Lab will have a solid color, usually black, yellow, or chocolate. If you notice an English Lab with a bi or tri-colored coat, there is a high chance the dog is a hybrid.
