My favorite breed is a Labrador. I had a chocolate lab and a yellow lab. The chocolate lab saved my life when I was little girl when two bigger stray dogs decided to wonder into my yard and became very aggressive. My Lab stayed between me and the two dogs even though they towered over him. Luckily my dad heard me screaming and came to the rescue before too much damage was done. But my Lab saved my life. They truly are self-sacrificing, loyal, loving dogs.
