He was just about to vanish in the 1880s but the Malmesbury family and others have spared the race. Extinct in Newfoundland, the breed made it in England and the Kennel Club recognized the Labrador Retriever as a different breed in 1903. The prevalence of the race truly began to take off after the Second World War, and in 1991, the Labrador Retriever turned into the most famous breed in North America and England. The first known yellow Labrador was Ben de Hyde, born in 1899. Chocolate Labradors got to be more predominant in the 1930s.
