Why did EA not include the world's most popular dog breed with TS3 Pets?? I don't know, but now your Sims can have three lovable Labrador Retrievers.

Bear
Bear is a big boy, who's really a big softy. He's game for any adventure, and will play all day long. He's not the brightest dog around, but he's the perfect friend for a Sim on the go.
Traits: Adventurous, Playful, Clueless


Winnie
Winnie is a fun, friendly girl. She lives to swim, and she will make friends with everybody at your Sim's parties. She does love to eat, though, so make sure to watch her weight.
Traits: Likes Swimming, Friendly, Piggy


Shelby
Shelby is a little "energizer bunny" who's always ready for action. If your Sim is in need of a loyal friend, look no further, for Shelby will stick faithfully by her master's side. If she doesn't get enough exercise, she may take her frustrations out on your couch.
Traits: Loyal, Hyper, Destructive

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

It blew my mind when ts3 did not include labs. Thank you so much for sharing your labs. I sadly lost one of my two labs this year from some sort of illness, and his sister I'm afraid I'll lose her soon due to a large tumor appearing on her side (which vet says is cancer :'(). I can now have both my labs in my game now thanks to you .

Thanks so much, I actually spent at least half an hour looking for a lab in the breeds section... I was shocked when I found out they never included it. I did notice that they included a pharaoh hound

Thank you. I will only consider requests if you PM me, but it just so happens I will eventually be making a set of goldens. That may not be for a while, so please be patient with me.

The meadows are in bloom:
who has ever seen such insolence?

I was shocked as well when I carefully went through the breeds.. I mean come one Ea.. The Labs are the most popular breed in the USA.. And they didn't include them??? Ea at its finest.. Even as they are including rare breeds from around the world. Some how miss the most popular one in the US market.

But that is Ea. Even as they get it right. Still some how manages to screw it up..

Also have inclkuded them.. They will make a fine a fine addition to my game... :D
