(Ogden-AP) -- The Ogden City Animal Shelter has an overabundance of black Labradors and is looking for the public's help in getting them good homes.

The shelter says as of Friday, they have about 28 Labradors. Twenty-three of them are black and include two litters of puppies.

Shelter officials say the black Labs are hardest to adopt out because folks want different colors.

The American Kennel Club says Labradors are good with children and adapt to new surroundings easily.

The shelter charges 100 dollars for the dogs, which includes spay or neutering, health exams, vaccinations and a microchip.
