  2.  <blockquote cite="https://petsroof.com/smallest-labrador-retriever/">       <h3>Miniature Labrador: The Smallest Labrador Retriever</h3>           <p>A mini labrador? What kind of special breed is it that makes our beloved Lab appear in miniature form? If you’ve heard about the smallest Labrador Retriever lately and are wondering what this craze is about, this article will surely help you.</p>           <p>So let’s first deal with the question of what the smallest Labrador Retriever actually is…</p>           <h2>What is a Mini Labrador?</h2>           <p>A Miniature Labrador is a special breed of Labrador that only reaches a size of 40 to 45 cm. The Miniature Labrador does not differ from a normal Labrador except for the size. Its friendly nature and family-friendly character are the same.</p>           <p>Miniature Labrador Retrievers aren’t actually a breed of dog in their own right.</p>               <p>They exist because resourceful breeders bred them so small. Incidentally, with questionable methods and a number of possible problems that the dogs and their owners can face later.</p>               <p>Unlike other dog species, there are actually no Labradors in miniature format. Especially not as a recognized breed, as is the case with schnauzers, poodles or dachshunds, where there are actually recognized “teacups” or “mini” breeds.</p>           <h2>Mini Labrador Retriever Size</h2>           <p>A Mini Labrador Retriever usually does not grow taller than 40 cm to 45 cm. With this size they reach a maximum weight of up to 20 kg.</p>               <p>So they are not quite as small as one would imagine. A dog with a size of 45cm also needs space, a means of transport in the car and is by no means a sofa buddy like the very small dogs.</p>           <h2>Miniature Labrador Experiences</h2>           <p>There are no real long-term experiences with miniature Labrador Retrievers. The breeding of this Labrador Mix is ​​simply too new for that.</p>                         <p>However, there are very controversial discussions about how artificial small-scale breeding affects the health of dogs and what problems they will have to endure in their development later on.</p>           <p>To understand this a little better, one has to look at how miniature Labradors are bred in the first place.</p>           <h2>How are miniature Labrador Retrievers bred?</h2>           <p>Now comes the part of the article that I’m going to make a lot of enemies with.</p>               <p>Namely with the breeders who currently breed and offer Miniature Labradors.</p>           <p>The reason for this is relatively simple: As a visitor to my blog and dog lover, I can only explain to you what the reality is when breeding miniature Labradors.</p>               <p>I can neither speak nicely nor approve it.</p>           <h2>Breeders use the small stature of the parent animals</h2>           <p>Short stature occurs not only in humans, but also in dogs. It actually results from a genetic flaw that causes bone growth to slow down significantly.</p>               <p>End of the story: Too little bone growth = short legged Labrador Retriever.</p>           <p>I’ll explain it in a very simplified way and one or the other breeder will probably scold me. *wink*</p>               <p>Miniature Labradors are bred by crossing two Labrador Retrievers that have this exact genetic disorder. If both parents have a natural short stature and pass this on in their genes to the next generation, in the end a puppy is born that never reaches the full size, but remains a short legged Labrador Retriever.</p>           <p>If you were to do that with people, there would be a huge social outcry. And rightly so!</p>               <p>Nobody would dismiss that with a “but they are so cute”.</p>           <h3>Crossbreeds with small breeds of dogs</h3>           <p>There is a second variant that breeders use to be able to breed the smallest Labrador Retriever at the end of the day.</p>                         <p>And that is mating with smaller breeds of dogs. A Labrador Retriever is crossed with a smaller but similar breed of dog.</p>               <p>In the end a smaller dog is born, but it is not purebred. To offer this dog as a pure-bred “Miniature Labrador” would almost be a deception. Because he is not purebred.</p>               <p>In addition, this type of breeding can lead to diseases and long-term consequences that do not make your four-legged friend’s life more pleasant.</p>           <h2>Health Risks for the Smallest Labrador Retriever</h2>           <p>By now we’ve talked a lot about the potential health hazards of Miniature Labs, but I haven’t pointed out any possible consequences directly to you.</p>               <p>Labradors are inherently a breed of dog that presents relatively few health problems.</p>               <p>Mini Labradors are very special breeds that bring a few risks.</p>       <p><strong></strong> https://petsroof.com/smallest-labrador-retriever/ </p>     </blockquote>
