We didn't have any trouble finding a place that would allow dogs - just be upfront about it.
But, having moved from a house with a big fenced yard, nothing we found outside of a landed house is terribly convenient. Consider the distance/time it would take for your dog from door to suitable outdoor area to relieve themselves.
Also be considerate of your neighbors - for muslims, dogs are about the lowest form of animal. So try to avoid situations where you'd have uncomfortable encounters (would advise low-rise vs high rise for both of the above comments).
Well, a couple more to add:
1) be prepared to see a few taxi drivers refuse your hire, if you have your dog with you, and that's not just muslims, so if you can, get a car.
2) Muslims, well, not all muslims are like that, in Singapore. There is a minority who harp on the teaching that says the dogs are the lowest form etc. etc. but a fair majority in Singapore are beyond such ancient words.
3) larger dogs (like your lab) generally are feared here, since most people live in congested environment. Smaller dogs are pretty much welcome, and there is a large and thriving dog lovers community here.
