Why are Labradors so preferred for apartments?

Why are Labradors so popular in India, where most ppl live in apartments and small houses. They are an active breed and require exercise.

Thats was the good question actually, yes they are active but you know labs love to live inside house, my lab stay calm when he is inside the house and he spends most of the day in just roaming inside my small house there and there and then sleep but the case is opposite if i keep him outside the house. He also exercise himself in my house by playing fetch game for 1 hr with me in evening inside that some house itself and apart from that he need min 30 minutes walk a day to meet his natural instincts. What i feel they are popular is they have huge big dog appearance which make intruder to scare enough but inside having a kid mentality. There are also one popular saying about lab in "Marley and Me" movie i.e. "Lab heart is bigger than their stomach", such a lovely dog it is.

Regarding being active and requiring exercise, the space they live in doesnt always have a impact on the same. A dog living in a farm may be cooped up in a kennel all day whereas a dog living in an apartment may be walked thrice a day and one hour off leash play.

Also there is a great degree of conditioning involved, some breeds and some dogs adapt, some don't, some do eventually and some just some carry on with some problems.If you look at humans too, once they too were active, living a nomadic life, hunting, in open spaces and but would you now prefer living in a cave or at home sweet home?

Labs too are just a choice one makes, there are other breeds, size dogs too which are not traditionally native but are kept as pets.
