Fox Red Labrador Retriever temperament
Friendly: The Labrador Retriever breed is known for its friendly personality. Labs love making new friends and being with other people and animals! For this reason, they don’t make the best guard dogs.
Obedient: Labs are eager to please their owners and are easy to train. Dr. Stanley Cohen’s testing shows that Labs can complete known commands with a 95% or better success rate!
Intelligent: Fox Red Labs are in the top 10 intelligent breeds and can learn many commands.
Energetic: Energy paired with intelligence means this breed can accomplish (or destroy) a lot! Without proper outlets for their energy, Labs become destructive. They make excellent working dogs and excel in therapy, as guide dogs, or in search and rescue. Plan to give your Fox Red Lab about an hour of exercise every day.
Loyal Companion: Fox Red Labs know who their family and main tribe are. They also love being involved with whatever their owners are doing and will want to be near you whenever possible.
Fox Red Labrador Retriever Breed history
The Labrador Retriever originated in Canada as a fisherman’s companion and a duck hunter.
The Labrador’s thick coat allowed it to tolerate the icy waters of the Atlantic ocean. Its drive to retrieve and love of swimming made it an excellent companion for duck hunters and fishermen who worked near water.
In the early 1800s, some English noblemen visiting Canada spotted these remarkable dogs and took some Labradors home.
Thus began the Labrador Retriever’s climb to popularity!
The English refined the Labrador Retriever and created breed standards, and in 1903, the Labrador Retriever was added to England’s Kennel Club.
America added the Labrador Retriever to the AKC registry in 1917.
In 1991, the Labrador Retriever became AKC’s most registered dog breed and has been at the top of the list every year since!
Three colors of Labradors Retrievers are recognized by the AKC: Black, Yellow, and Chocolate. The Fox Red color is technically a shade of yellow. Think of it as “dark golden.”
Originally, most yellow labs were a fox red or dark golden color. However, in the mid-to-late 1900s, light yellow and cream Labradors became popular, and the fox red color took a backseat.
In the past 10-15 years, the fox red shade of Labradors has become popular again, as it is a fresh and unique shade.
Although the Fox Red Lab is accepted in show rings, judges usually avoid extremes within a breed and typically favor the common shades of black, chocolate, or lighter yellow. If you are hoping to show your dog, a Fox Red Lab may not do well in a show ring because of their color.
However, if you are looking for a gorgeous, athletic, and joyful doggy companion, a Fox Red Lab is a perfect fit!

Average Fox Red Labrador Retriever lifespan
The Labrador Retriever breed usually lives for 11-13 years.
Fox Red Labrador Retriever body features
Fox Red Labrador Retrievers have a striking red or rust-colored coat, dark eyes, and black or brown noses.
Like all Labs, the Fox Red Lab has a thick double coat that keeps them warm in harsh weather or while swimming.
They have a square, sturdy build, webbed paws, and an otter-like tail, making them excellent swimmers.
grooming Your Fox Red Labrador Retriever Puppy
The thick, double coat of a Fox Red Labrador means they will shed heavily twice a year. During their heavy shedding seasons, they’ll need frequent brushing and bathing.
The rest of the year, Labradors shed moderately. A thorough brushing once a week and a bath when needed will be sufficient for the lower-shedding seasons.
Check your dog’s ears regularly for redness, swelling, or itching. Since a Lab’s ears hang down on the side of their face, their ears can hold moisture and can become infected. After bathing or swimming, make sure their ears are dry.
Your dog will also need its nails trimmed and teeth brushed regularly.
Keeping Your Fox Red Labrador Retriever Puppy Healthy
Labrador Retrievers are an overall healthy breed and don’t typically require any unusual care.
However, it’s essential for dog owners to be aware of conditions that may affect their dog.
Conditions that may affect Labrador Retrievers include:
Bloat, A Life-Threatening Condition
Bloat is when the stomach becomes twisted and the gases in the stomach are unable to escape. The pressure from these gases affects the blood flow to the heart and can be fatal.
To prevent bloat:
- Avoid feeding your dog right before or after heavy exercise.
- Feed them a few smaller meals a day instead of one large meal.
- Learn to recognize the symptoms of bloat so you can take action immediately.
Some owners choose to have surgery done to tack their dog’s stomach in place and prevent it from twisting.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Like all dog breeds, they are at risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues in dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the thigh bone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip and can result in limping, lameness, or arthritis if it’s not addressed.
Hip and elbow dysplasia can be genetic, or it can be caused by environmental factors such as overeating or injuries.
Here are some ways to prevent hip dysplasia in your puppy:
- Ask the breeder for an OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip Clearance. Dogs with hip dysplasia shouldn’t be bred.
- Talk to your vet about the right food for your puppy and stick to the correct amount to prevent unhealthy growth.
- Keep your puppy from running or jumping excessively on hard surfaces and from standing on its hind legs.
Protect Your Labrador from Obesity
You can protect your dog from one of the most common health problems: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.
Typical Fox Red Labrador Retriever Allergens
Allergies are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the fur that dogs shed.
Fox Red Labradors (and any kind of Labradors) shed enough that they are not an allergen-friendly dog breed.
Regular brushing and bathing can help to keep allergens lower.
If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.
