The crossing of the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Labrador Retriever resulted in obtaining a breed called the Labrabull or, at times, also known as the Pitador. Being a mixed breed, the Labrabull can be a surprise with regards to the combination of physical and personality characteristics, as every puppy has unique doses of intelligence, temperament, looks and health conditions, depending on how the genetic information from the parents is combined.
Probably the friendliest and most sociable breeds of dogs in the world, the Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever were crossed to obtain a similarly sociable and people pleasing dog, the Golden Labrador.
Devoted, affectionate and with a high energy reserves level, the Goldador are renowned for their trainability. Excellent family members as they get along very well with children and other pets, these dogs are also doing very well as guide and service dogs, as well as in the bomb detection activities.
Labradoodles as a breed first emerged back in 1989 when Wally Conron, an Australian breeder, crossed a Standard Poodle and a Labrador Retriever for Guide Dogs Victoria. The aim was to get the best characteristics of both of them in one dog – to combine the trainability and gentleness of the Labrador with the Poodle’s low shedding coat. Conron wanted to use the Labrador’s abilities to be a great guide, an assistant and a therapy dog together with the fur of the Poodles so that people with allergies could also use them.
A German Shepherd and Lab mix (the so called German Sheprador) can be quite unpredictable, as you can expect from any other combination between two different breeds. Check out the pictures below to see what kind of dog you might get if you mix the friendly Labrador dog with a German Shepherd, a dog that is great for service jobs. Both breeds are highly intelligent (top 5 more intelligent dog breeds), so there is no question that a German Shepherd Labrador Mix will result in a smart dog. The only question is how will it look like.
