Can you tell an American Lab from an English Lab?

Labrador Retrievers not only come in many colors, but also different shapes. In addition to being black, chocolate, yellow, silver, or fox red, Labs can also be American or English.

Though kennel clubs and other national registries do not differentiate between the two types as separate breeds, these Labradors are noticeably unique.

However, many people--even veterinarians and Lab owners--confuse the two types. A quick Google search can steer you in the wrong direction if you're not looking at a reputable site.

To save you the hassle of ever confusing the two again, we've put together a quiz to test your knowledge on the differences.

As their namesakes suggest, the English Lab tends to more of a household pet in the U.K. whereas the American Lab is more common in the U.S.

Not only are English and American Labs mixed up, but some people mistake Chesapeake Bay Retrievers for Chocolate Labs. (You can test your knowledge of that here.)

But one thing all Labs have in common is their lovable, smiley nature.
