These puppies are so cute, but just to clarify about labs:
American type labs are traditionally considered from American Field Trial lines. They are often very slim, very energetic, and have a very high prey drive.
My American FT lab is an intact male yellow going 60lbs. He is 3 years old.
British labs are often more blocky and heavier than the American counterparts. They are often a bit easier for the average joe who wants a couch dog. British dogs bred for field work are bred to pick up feathers AND fur... Which you might want to consider if you have beloved pet rabbits.
BENCH BRED labs are the show dogs in America. They are super heavy dogs, going 100 lbs or more, blocky, typically have no desire to hunt or really retrieve.
They are nice for a sofa dog.
These pups look a bit heavy to be from true working American lines which is actually a good thing if you want a calm cute pet lol.
