The Labrador Retriever, or just Labrador, is a large type of retriever-gun dog. The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
A favourite disability assistance breed in many countries, Labradors are frequently trained to aid the blind, those who have autism, to act as a therapy dog, or to perform screening and detection work for law enforcement and other official agencies. Additionally, they are prized as sporting and hunting dogs.
A few kennels breeding their ancestors, the St. John's water dog, were in England. At the same time, a combination of the sheep protection policy in Newfoundland and the rabies quarantine in the United Kingdom led to the gradual demise of the St. John's water dog in Canada.
In the s, the 10th Earl of Home and his nephews the 5th Duke of Buccleuch and Lord John Scott, had imported progenitors of the breed from Newfoundland to Europe for use as gundogs. Another early advocate of these Newfoundland dogs, or Labrador Retrievers as they later became known, was the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury who bred them for their expertise in waterfowling.
During the s, the 3rd Earl of Malmesbury, the 6th Duke of Buccleuch and the 12th Earl of Home collaborated to develop and establish the modern Labrador breed. The dogs Buccleuch Avon and Buccleuch Ned, given by Malmesbury to Buccleuch, were mated with female dogs carrying blood from those originally imported by the 5th Duke and the 10th Earl of Home. The offspring are considered to be the ancestors of modern Labradors.
The modern Labrador's ancestors originated on the island of Newfoundland, now part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The founding breed of the Labrador was the St. John's water dog, a breed that emerged through ad-hoc breedings by early settlers of the island in the 16th century. The forebears of the St. John's Dog are not known, but were likely a random-bred mix of English, Irish, and Portuguese working breeds. The Newfoundland (known then as the Greater Newfoundland) is likely a result of the St. John's Dog breeding with mastiffs brought to the island by the generations of Portuguese fishermen who had been fishing offshore since the 16th century. The smaller short-coated St. John's Dog (also known then as the Lesser Newfoundland) was used for retrieval and pulling in nets from the water. These smaller dogs were the forebears of the Labrador Retriever. The white chest, feet, chin, and muzzle – known as tuxedo markings – characteristic of the St. John's Dog often appear in modern Lab mixes, and will occasionally manifest in Labradors as a small white spot on the chest (known as a medallion) or stray white hairs on the feet or muzzle.
In the early years of the breed through to the midth century, Labradors of a shade we would now call "yellow" were in fact a dark, almost butterscotch, colour (visible in early yellow Labrador photographs). The shade was known as "Golden" until required to be changed by the UK Kennel Club, on the grounds that "Gold" was not actually a colour. Over the 20th century a preference for far lighter shades of yellow through to cream prevailed; until today most yellow Labradors are of this shade. Also fawn has been a common colour in the yellow lab variety. The paler shades of yellow are undesirable in working gundog lines as they are more easily seen by quarry than black and darker yellow dogs.
Interest in the darker shades of gold and fox red were re-established by English breeders in the s, and three dogs were instrumental in this change: Balrion King Frost (black, born c. ) who consistently sired "very dark yellow" offspring and is credited as having "the biggest influence in the re-development of the fox red shade", and his great-grandson, the likewise famous Wynfaul Tabasco (b. ), described as "the father of the modern fox red Labrador", and the only modern fox red Show Champion in the UK. Other dogs, such as Red Alert and Scrimshaw Placido Flamingo, are also credited with passing on the genes into more than one renowned bloodline.
Jack Vanderwyk traces the origins of all Brown/Liver/Chocolate Labradors listed on the LabradorNet database (some 34, Labrador dogs of all shades) to eight original bloodlines. However, the shade was not seen as a distinct colour until the 20th century; before then, according to Vanderwyk, such dogs can be traced but were not registered. A degree of crossbreeding with Flatcoat or Chesapeake Bay retrievers was also documented in the early 20th century, prior to recognition. Chocolate Labradors were also well established in the early 20th century at the kennels of the Earl of Feversham, and Lady Ward of Chiltonfoliat.
The bloodlines as traced by Vanderwyk each lead back to three black Labradors in the s—Buccleuch Avon (m), and his sire and dam, Malmesbury Tramp (m), and Malmesbury June (f). Morningtown Tobla is also named as an important intermediary, and according to the studbook of Buccleuch Kennels, the chocolates in this kennel came through FTW Peter of Faskally ().
The AKC describes the Labrador's temperament as a kind, pleasant, outgoing and tractable nature. Labradors' sense of smell allows them to home in on almost any scent and follow the path of its origin. They generally stay on the scent until they find it. Navies, military forces and police forces use them as detection dogs to track down smugglers, thieves, terrorists and black marketers. They are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, as a result of being bred to retrieve game such as waterfowl. They are prone to chewing objects (though they can be trained to abandon this behaviour).
Labradors have a reputation as a very even-tempered breed and an excellent family dog. This includes a good reputation with children of all ages and other animals. Some lines, particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field (rather than for their appearance), are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear may require training and firm handling at times to ensure it does not get out of hand—an uncontrolled adult can be quite problematic. Females may be slightly more independent than males. Labradors mature at around three years of age; before this time they can have a significant degree of puppy-like energy, often mislabelled as being hyperactive. Because of their enthusiasm, leash-training early on is suggested to prevent pulling when full-grown. Labradors often enjoy retrieving a ball endlessly (often obsessively) and other forms of activity (such as agility, frisbee, or flyball).
Although they will sometimes bark at noise, especially noise from an unseen source ("alarm barking"), Labradors are usually not noisy or territorial. They are often very easygoing and trusting with strangers and therefore are not usually suitable as guard dogs.
Labradors as a breed are curious and exploratory and love company, following both people and interesting scents for food, attention, and novelty value. In this way, they can often "vanish" or otherwise become separated from their owners with little fanfare. As a breed they are highly intelligent and capable of intense single-mindedness and focus if motivated or their interest is caught. Therefore, with the right conditions and stimuli, a bored Labrador could "turn into an escape artist par excellence". Many dogs are also stolen. Because of their curious nature and ability to "vanish," along with the risk of being stolen, a number of dog clubs and rescue organisations (including the UK's Kennel Club) consider it good practice that Labradors be microchipped, with the owner's name and address also on their collar and tags.
The steady temperament of Labradors and their ability to learn make them an ideal breed for search and rescue, detection, and therapy work. They are a very intelligent breed. They are ranked No. 7 in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs. The AKC describes the breed as an ideal family and sporting dog. Their primary working role in the field continues to be that of a hunting retriever.

Once again, the Labrador Retriever is the nations most popular dog breed. People don’t just love them, they’re obsessed with them.
If you’re already a fan, then you know all about the breeds many charming qualities. But if you’re still wondering how the Lab continues to dominate the competition year after year, the photos below illustrate why thousands of Americans cant get enough!
1. Because Lab puppies are heart-meltingly adorable.
2. Because they come in all different colors…
…and they’re all stunning.
3. Because they’re Olympic-quality athletes in dock diving
Labrador Retriever Mixes: 51 Different Lab Crossbreeds
The friendly, faithful Labrador Retriever has long been the number one choice of family pet for many American families and currently occupies the #1 slot on the American Kennel Club’s breed popularity chart. That’s why the creating a Labrador Retriever mix became extremely popular during the creation of designer breeds in the s.
The Labrador Retriever is energetic, trainable, loving, and gets on great with kids and other pets of all species. The Lab is also a working dog that excels in the hunting and shooting field. Also, Labrador Retrievers love to participate in canine sports, including dock-diving and obedience, making these versatile all-rounders the perfect canine companion for families who enjoy life in the Great Outdoors.
However, purebred Lab puppies can be very expensive to buy, especially if their parents have a good show or competition pedigree. Labrador Retriever mix puppies can be a little cheaper to purchase, and that could fit your budget better.
Labrador Retriever Lines
The modern Labrador Retriever is bred in two distinct lines. The English Lab, and the American Lab. They are also referred to as Bench vs. Field. The English Lab matures later and is stockier in build than the American Lab who is more agile, leaner and is often easier to train.
So, with that in mind, remember to ask the breeder what kind of Labrador Retriever parent was used to create the mixed breed you’re considering buying. That way youll have a better idea into what type of mix you may have on your hands as your pup ages.
Labrador Retriever Mixes
So, which is the best breed of dog to cross with the Labrador Retriever? This article looks at 51 Labrador Retriever mixes that you’ll likely come across at your local shelter or at an F1 crossbreed breeder. Some of these designer pups are very popular and easy to find. However, we’ve included a number of the more unusual, seldom-seen mixes too.
When choosing a mixed breed dog, remember that your puppy takes genes from each parent. There’s no way of knowing how big your dog will be, what he’ll look like, and whether he will grow up to be a good fit for your family and lifestyle. It’s really just a matter of potluck!
Not everyone wants to take on the challenge of raising a puppy, and not everyone likes surprises! So, if you would prefer to know what you’re getting right off the bat, you might want to consider fostering an adult Labrador Retriever mix from a shelter or rescue.
Offering a foster home to a dog allows you the ideal opportunity to see if the pup will settle in well with you and your family. If all goes well and you and the dog are the perfect fit, you could offer the unwanted pup a loving, forever home.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever
The Goldador is a cross between the Golden Retriever and the equally famous Labrador Retriever. These are large dogs, usually weighing between 55 and 80 pounds. If you take on one of these pups, you’ll need a large house with plenty of outside space. Also, these are energetic, working dogs that need plenty of exercise every day to keep them fit and mentally happy.
The Goldador typically has the thick, double-coat of both parent dogs and is a very popular Golden mix. Goldadors shed all year round, having two heavy shedding periods during the spring and fall. Ordinarily, you’ll need to groom your Goldador every other day and daily during heavy shedding times.
Goldadors can live from ten to 12 years. You should note here that both breeds can be prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, so you must ask to see clear health screening documentation for both your puppy’s parents. The Goldador is a friendly, lively breed that gets on well with kids and other pets.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Doberman Pinscher
The Doberdor is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Doberman. These are big, powerful dogs that can grow to weigh up to pounds when full-grown. Doberdors are a mix that need lots of exercise to keep them fit and healthy. Again, you’ll need a spacious home with a large backyard or garden to comfortably accommodate one of these dogs.
Generally good with other dogs and children, the Doberdor is a friendly pup thats easy to train. The breed is also very alert and makes a superb watchdog. Doberdors usually have a short coat that sheds seasonally and requires brushing once or twice a week to keep it clean and tidy.
The Doberdor is a pretty healthy breed that has a lifespan of up to 12 years. However, hip and elbow dysplasia can be seen in both parent breeds, so be sure to ask the breeder to show you proof that your puppy’s parents have been health screened for these conditions.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd
The German Sheprador is a mix between the Labrador Retriever and the German Shepherd. This is truly a breed that’s super-impressive in the popularity stakes; the Labrador Retriever is #1 on the AKC charts, and the German Shepherd is right behind at #2!
The two parent breeds that are bred to create the German Sheprador are somewhat different in their temperament. The Lab is usually friendly and sociable, whereas the German Shepherd can be more aloof and suspicious of strangers.
The German Sheprador is a medium-sized dog that can weigh up to 90 pounds, standing up to 24 inches tall at the shoulder. The German Sheprador’s coat is usually thick, short, and double-layered. So, you can expect year-round moderate shedding and two extra-heavy shedding periods in the fall and spring.
Shepradors have a life expectancy of up to 12 years. Both these pups’ parent breeds are working dogs, and their offspring need plenty of exercise. That said, the breed is very loyal and makes a great family pet and guard dog.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Poodle
The Labradoodle is designer dog royalty! These pups are one of the most popular and frequently seen poodle mixes around. The Labradoodle is created by crossing a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. The breed is quite long-lived, having a life expectancy of up to 18 years.
Labradoodles come in three sizes, standard, medium, and miniature, depending on the type of poodle parent that’s used to create the mix. So, your dog could stand from 14 to 26 inches tall at the shoulder, weighing between 25 and 95 pounds.
The Labradoodle is a friendly, easygoing sort of pup that usually fits in well in homes where the family includes small children and other pets. That said, these dogs do require plenty of exercise every day and are not couch potatoes! One of the primary reasons that Labradoodles are so popular is their very low-shedding coat, making the breed a good choice for a family with pet allergies.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Pitbull Terrier
The Pitador is a cross between a Pitbull and a Labrador. These are large, muscular Pitbull mixes that can weigh between 30 and 80 pounds, having a lifespan of up to 16 years. The Pitador’s grooming requirements are modest, as the coat is short. However, these dogs do shed moderately year-round.
Pitadors are known to be loyal, friendly, intelligent, and make good family pets, as long as they are properly trained and well-socialized as puppies. Training a Pitador is usually pretty straightforward, as this hybrid is extremely smart and eager to please.
If you decide to take on a Pitador puppy, ask the breeder for evidence of good elbow and hip scores for both parents, as well as an eye test carried out within the last year.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Rottweiler
A cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Rottweiler is called a Rottador. Like most Rottweiler mixes, These are large dogs, weighing anywhere between 55 and pounds and standing up to 27 inches tall at the shoulder.
So, you will need plenty of space in your home to accommodate one of these pups. Your Rottador could live for up to 12 years. These are intelligent pups who are willing to learn and eager to please, making the Rottador a cinch to train!
That said, these are lively dogs who need plenty of exercise. A bored Rottador can become destructive, so be sure to provide your pup with plenty of toys to keep him entertained when you’re not around. The Rottador usually has a short coat that sheds moderately year-round and needs grooming once a week or so to keep him looking smart.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Chow Chow
The Chabrador is an unusual mixture of a Chow Chow and a Labrador Retriever. The Chow Chow is best known for their characteristic deep facial folds and signature neck ruff that gives them a lion-like appearance.
Whereas the Labrador Retriever is a happy-go-lucky, friendly character, the Chow Chow can be more aloof and reserved, especially with strangers, and can be a one-person dog thats best suited to a couple or singleton with no children in the family. Your Chabrador can live for up to 12 years.
Although the breed’s exercise requirements are pretty modest, you will need to have plenty of time available for grooming your dog, as the Chabrador has a thick double coat that sheds constantly.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Corgi
If you’re looking for a smaller dog, you might want to consider the Corgidor. The Corgidor is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Corgidors weigh between 30 and 80 pounds, standing up to around 15 inches in height or taller, depending on which parent the puppy most takes after.
Like most Corgi mixes, these pups are usually very family-friendly, living for up to 13 years and suffering very few serious health issues. Bear in mind that both parent breeds are working dogs, so the Corgidor does need plenty of exercise and playtimes too.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Siberian Husky
The Huskador is a cross between a Lab and a Siberian Husky. The Huskador can grow to weigh up to 80 pounds, standing up to inches tall at the shoulder. You can expect your pup to live for up to 14 years.
Like all Husky Mixes, these are friendly, people-loving dogs who are very smart and quick to learn. However, the Siberian Husky is a pack dog and can suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for long periods.
The Siberian Husky is well-known for his thick, luxuriant coat and is a heavy shedder. So, you can expect your Huskador to shed year-round with two heavier shedding periods in the spring and fall.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Springer Spaniel
The Springador is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and an English Springer Spaniel. These are quite large dogs, standing up to 20 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing between 40 and 80 pounds.
Springadors are high-energy dogs that usually have a very strong prey drive. That means that these pups don’t mix well with small furries, such as rabbits and cats, although they do get along with kids of all ages.
Although trainable and willing to please his owners, the Springador needs to be included in every aspect of family life, and he doesn’t cope well if left to his own devices for long periods of time.
Unfortunately, both parent breeds can be prone to suffering from similar health conditions, and that could present the risk that their progeny could be similarly afflicted. For that reason, you must ensure that your Springador pup’s parents have been health-screened. The Springador typically lives for between ten and 14 years.
Both parent breeds have long, double coats that shed year-round and more heavily in spring and fall, so regular grooming is required to prevent the coat from becoming tangled and matted.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Pointer
If you’re looking for a dog that has a true sporting pedigree, look no further than the Pointerdor. The Pointerdor is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Pointer.
Both breeds are hunting, sporting dogs, so one of these pups would suit you perfectly if you enjoy taking part in field sports and want a canine companion to join you in your country pursuits.
These are energetic dogs that do need plenty of exercise every day. A bored Pointerdor will howl and dig to amuse himself! For that reason, you can’t leave this breed alone for long periods.
The friendly, loyal Pointerdor has a short coat that’s easy to maintain, although he does shed continually, so might not suit someone who can’t tolerate dog hair over their home and clothes. Pointerdors usually grow to stand around 20 inches high, weighing between 40 and 80 pounds. This crossbreed is usually pretty healthy and can live for between ten and 17 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Afghan Hound
The handsome Afador is a very unusual and seldom-seen cross between an Afghan Hound and a Labrador Retriever. These are tall, athletic pups that need lots of exercise to keep them happy. A full-grown Afador can grow to weigh up to 75 pounds.
The Afador lacks the friendly, outgoing personality of the Labrador Retriever and is usually a little aloof, taking after the Afghan parent. Although these pups make the perfect family pet for families with older kids, they are not suited to novice dog owners, as they can be willful and tricky to train.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Basset Hound
The unique-looking Bassador is a medium-sized dog that’s a cross between a Basset Hound and a Labrador Retriever. The Bassador is very loyal, although he can be a tad stubborn and challenging to train. In general, Bassadors love to be the center of attention in their human family.
They also need to have a home with plenty of outside space where they can roam and indulge their passion for sniffing and following interesting scents. The Bassador parent breeds both have high prey drives, meaning that your furry friend may have a tendency to chase after small pets, including the family cat!
However, as long as you train and socialize your Bassador properly from puppyhood, he can quickly learn to behave appropriately around the other members of the family.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Boxer
The bouncy Boxador is a mix between a Lab and a Boxer. These super-lively dogs grow to be quite large, weighing up to 80 pounds and standing up to 18 inches at the shoulder. The Boxador’s coat is usually short and sheds continually, although regular grooming can help to keep mess around your home to a minimum.
The Boxador is the life and soul of the party at the dog park! These pups are protective, kind, and loyal to their human family, behaving like overgrown puppies most of the time. Consequently, you’ll need a large home with plenty of outside space where your Boxador can burn off some of his excess energy between walks. A healthy Boxador can live to between ten and 12 years of age.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The chirpy, happy-go-lucky Cavador is a mixed breed that’s created by mating a Labrador Retriever and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Cavadors are medium-sized dogs that can weigh up to around 55 pounds. These are wonderful family canine companions who get on well with other pets and children.
Lively and inquisitive, the Cavador does need plenty of exercise. On the plus side, these guys don’t need a huge amount of grooming to keep their silky coats in good condition. A healthy Cavador can live to around 15 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Border Collie
The Borador is a Border Collie mixed with a Labrador. The super-energetic Borador is a medium-sized dog that can weigh between 30 and 80 pounds, depending on which parent the pup most takes after.
Boradors have thick, double coats that shed continually, especially during the spring and fall when heavy shedding takes place. For that reason, you’ll need to brush your dog at least twice each week to get rid of any loose and dead hair and keep your pet’s coat in good condition. The Borador is a generally healthy breed that can live for up to 15 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Weimaraner
The Labmaraner is a cross between a Weimaraner and a Labrador Retriever. These are large, lively dogs that are powerful and athletic, needing lots of exercise to keep them fit and healthy. If you and your family enjoy spending lots of time in the Great Outdoors, a Labmaraner could be the perfect fit for you.
The Labmaraner usually weighs around 55 to 90 pounds, standing up to 20 inches at the shoulder. Their coat is short and easy to groom, shedding lightly all year round and more heavily in the spring and fall. Typically healthy, the Labmaraner can live for up to 13 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Alaskan Malamute
The unusual Alaskan Malador is a cross between the beautiful Alaskan Malamute and a Labrador Retriever. These pups are usually very affectionate, active family pets that get on well with pretty much everyone, including kids and other pets.
The Alaskan Malador is a working dog that needs plenty of exercise. Also, these pups typically have a double coat that takes lots of maintenance and grooming. These dogs wont suit you if anyone in your household has a pet allergy, as they do shed continually, especially in spring and fall.
The Alaskan Malador is a smart, trainable breed that will love learning tricks and commands, making them the perfect pet for a family with older children and teens who fancy themselves as dog trainers! You can expect your puppy to grow to weigh between 65 and 85 pounds, standing up to 25 inches at the shoulder.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and American Bulldog
The American Bullador is an unusual crossbreed that’s a mix between a Labrador Retriever and an American Bulldog. The size of the American Bullador varies tremendously, depending on which parent the puppies most take after.
Typically, American Bulladors stand around 25 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 55 and 85 pounds. The American Bullador’s coat is short and low maintenance, requiring brushing once a week or so. Coat colors and markings vary, but the most common colors tend to be brown, black, red, tan, or yellow, often combined with white.
You’ll find the American Bullador to be a loyal, brave, protective dog. Early socialization and patient, positive training from puppyhood are essential, as the American Bulldog parent can be strong-willed.
Be aware that if your puppy takes more after his Bulldog parent, his muzzle may be short and flattened. That can predispose the dog to a range of respiratory problems, including brachycephalic syndrome.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Australian Shepherd
The Aussiedor is a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Labrador. These are medium-sized, extremely active pups that need lots of exercise to keep them happy. Also, you’ll need to have a home with a large backyard where your dog can romp and play.
The parent breeds of this Lab mix are poles apart in personality and temperament. If your Aussiedor takes more after his Labrador Retriever parent, you can expect him to be friendly, sociable, and easygoing. However, an Aussiedor with more Australian Shepherd traits will be shy, reclusive, and very protective of his owner.
Both parent breeds are highly trainable and energetic, and the Aussiedor is, therefore, best-suited to an active family who spends lots of time outdoors. Also, the Australian Shepherd is a herding dog, and Aussiedors can exhibit those behaviors too, which could be an issue if you have young children or other pets. The Australian Aussiedor has a life expectancy of up to 14 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Beagle
The Beagador is a Beagle thats been mixed with a Labrador Retriever. These pups are quite small, making them suitable for you if you have a bijou home with limited outside space. That said, the Beagador is a lively chap who does need plenty of exercise and attention.
Fun-loving, loyal, and friendly, the Beagador can make an ideal furry friend for families with kids and other pets. However, if the Beagle parent is dominant, your puppy may be easily distracted and challenging to train. The Beagador can stand between 18 inches and 24 inches in height, weighing from 24 to 40 pounds.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Bloodhound
The Labloodhound is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Bloodhound. These are large dogs, standing up to 27 inches tall and weighing between 70 and pounds. The Labloodhound is gentle and friendly and usually loves everyone, although they can suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for long periods.
These pups don’t shed much, so grooming requirements are minimal. However, thanks to the Bloodhound genes, the Labloodhound is a slobberer! You’ll need to enjoy walking, as these dogs do need plenty of exercise.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Boston Terrier
The Boston Lab is a Labrador Retriever thats been mixed with a Boston Terrier. These are medium-sized dogs that usually have a happy, playful nature, being very affectionate and loyal. The Boston Lab is very trainable, eager to please, and loves kids, making this breed a great choice for the first time dog owner.
Socialization comes naturally to the sociable Boston Lab, and a trip to the dog park is always a winner with these pups! The Boston Lab is usually a healthy breed, although they can be vulnerable to hip dysplasia and intervertebral disc disease.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Bullmastiff
The Bullmassador is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Bull Mastiff. These large dogs can weigh up to pounds and are typically tall too. So, you’ll need a large house to accommodate one of these pups.
That said, despite their size, these dogs don’t require a huge amount of exercise, being content with one long walk every day. The Bullmassador loves to be around his human family. These dogs are loyal companions who make very efficient watchdogs. They are quite trainable, but may not be the best choice for a first-time dog owner, largely due to their size.
The Bullmassador can live to be 12 years old. They are generally healthy, although the breed can be prone to joint problems, mast cell tumors, and lymphoma.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Cane Corso
The Labrador Corso is a cross between a Cane Corso and a Labrador Retriever. Cane Corsos are also known as Italian Mastiffs, and they are quite large. These are sizeable canines, standing up to 28 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing between 55 and pounds. Male dogs are usually bigger than females. So, you’ll need a large home with plenty of outside space to accommodate a Labrador Corso.
The Labrador Corso is a very smart, trainable dog. However, the Cane Corso parentage demands that their owner is kind and calm but firm, as the breed has a tendency to be dominant. With a life expectancy of up to 12 years, the Labrador Corso is generally a fairly healthy mix.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Dalmatian
Dalmatian mixes are always going to be interesting due to their spotty coats. The unusual and beautiful Dalmador is a cross between a Dalmatian and a Labrador Retriever. The Dalmador is a medium-sized dog with a very active, lively nature. So, this breed will fit best in a family that enjoys the outdoor life, including plenty of long walks.
Labs have little in common with Dalmatians. But when you cross them, you end up with very social characters who loves to be around other pets, dogs, and kids. Highly protective of their human pack, the Dalmador makes a great guard dog too.
Dalmadors are very smart. This means your puppy will need a consistent approach when it comes to training, as he can be something of a handful. The Dalmador has a short, dense double-coat that sheds continually with two heavy shedding periods in the spring and fall.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Shar-Pei
The Lab Pei is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Chinese Shar-Pei. The medium-sized Lab Pei usually inherits the sweet, crumple-faded look of his Shar-Pei parent and makes a super family dog, as these pups love to be around children and other pets.
Although the breed is protective of its family and will bark to warn of strangers on their territory, these pups are generally not aggressive. Intelligent and keen to please, the Lab Pei is easy to train, thriving on human attention and wanting to be at the center of any family activity.
Lab Peis usually live to between eight and ten years. Although the breed is pretty healthy, their facial skin folds must be kept clean and dry, and they may suffer from entropion. These pups are heavy shedders and need twice-weekly brushing, especially during the spring and fall.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Cocker Spaniel
The quirky and unusual Spanador is a mix between an American Cocker Spaniel and a Labrador Retriever. These affectionate, fun-loving pups love to be around their human family, and they get along great with everyone, including kids and other pets. Although both parents are working breeds, the Spanador is just as happy curling up on your lap as he is running through the fields on an adventure.
Spanadors are trainable too, and they love to take part in canine agility sports, including agility and dock-diving. An adult Spanador can grow to stand 20 inches tall at the shoulder, weighing between 20 to 50 pounds. These good-looking, healthy pups can live for up to 15 years and are a healthier Labrador mix.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Bernese Mountain Dog
The friendly Laberner is a Labrador thats been mixed with a Bernese Mountain Dog. Although the Laberner usually has a calm temperament, these dogs can be aloof and suspicious around strangers thanks to the Bernese Mountain Dog parent’s guarding ancestry. So, you’ll need to be sure to socialize your puppy from day one. Because of that, the Laberner is best suited to an experienced dog-owning home.
Unfortunately, the Laberner is not as long-lived as many other Labrador Retriever mixes, having a life expectancy of around eight to ten years. Also, both parent breeds can be prone to joint problems in older life, and that’s a problem that a puppy could inherit.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Akita
The Labrakita is a Labrador Retriever thats been mixed with an Akita. This is a large dog, standing up to 27 inches tall and weighing up to pounds, so you will need plenty of space to accommodate one of these super-sized pups.
The Labrakita is pretty healthy, although the breed can be prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, so be sure to check that both parents have clear health screening results for these conditions.
Labrakitas make excellent guard dogs and can do well in a family setting. However, the breed is very protective and distrustful of strangers. The Labrakita is not suitable for a family with young children and must be well-socialized as a puppy if he is to get along with other pets.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Australian Cattle Dog
The American Lattle is a mixed breed that’s created by mating a Labrador Retriever and an Australian Cattle Dog. This is a very unusual, seldom-seen breed that can make a wonderful family pet, provided they are given plenty of exercise and lots of training.
After a hard days hiking, hunting, or taking part in dog agility events, the Lattle loves nothing more than to curl up in front of the fire and settle in with his family for the night. Lattles do shed continually, so these pups need brushing at least once a week.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Dachshund
The super-cute, cuddly Dachsador is a cross between a Labrador and a Dachshund. The Dachsador is motivated and energetic, making them a wonderful companion and family pet. These little guys are low-maintenance when it comes to grooming requirements and don’t need a huge amount of exercise to keep them fit.
Many Dachsadors err on the small side, standing between 15 and 25 inches in height and weighing around 30 to 40 pounds. The breed’s body shape generally takes after that of the Dachshund parent. These are generally healthy dogs, although they can be prone to hip dysplasia.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Great Dane
The noble, majestic Labradane is a Labrador Retriever thats been mixed with a Great Dane. This big softie loves playing with children and other dogs, making the Labradane a great choice of a family pet. The breed is relatively rare, but these are sweet-natured dogs that get along with everyone.
Tolerant and eager to please, the Labradane has a heart of gold and loves human company. For that reason, these pups don’t do well when left alone for long periods and can suffer from separation anxiety. The Labradane has a life expectancy of eight to 12 years. These dogs are pretty healthy, although they can suffer from hip and elbow dysplasia.

The Pugador is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Pug. This is a very unusual crossbreed that’s not often seen at the dog park! The Pugador is usually a small or medium-sized dog, weighing up to 50 pounds.

The breed is usually friendly and good with children and other pets and loves to be around his human family. The average life expectancy of a Pugador is around 15 years.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Blue Heeler
The Labraheeler is a friendly and active pup. In the Labraheeler, you have one-half Labrador and one half Blue Heeler. Labraheelers are very energetic and will keep you on your toes in their first few years. Inheriting the energy level of both parents, they dont settle down until around 3 or 4 years of age. The good news is that they are very friendly, and usually get along well with both kids and other pets, provided they were raised with them at an early age. Labraheelers will weigh between 35 and 50 pounds when fully grown.
Labraheeler owners should have a larger sized yard. Yes, they can live in an apartment. But they will do much better with land to roam, as their heeler parent is primarily a herding dog. Sprinkle in some Labrador energy, and you have a very active breed that will find its way into some mischief without daily exercise. If you have a smaller yard or living space, just make sure your Labraheeler can get a good minutes of walking in per day.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Greyhound
Labrahounds are a combination of the Greyhound and the Lab. These pups are going to be taller and leaner than a purebred Lab, but slightly shorter in stature than an actual Greyhound. Labrahounds are excellent family dogs, as both Greyhounds and Labradors are very family-oriented dogs. They are great with kids, and other dogs. Depending on which parent your Labrahound takes after, they may not do well with other pets. Labrahounds will weigh between 50 and 75 pounds when fully grown.
The Greyhound parent of the Labrahound means that this mix will more than likely have coursing instincts hardwired into their personality. This means they will chase prey, possibly including the family cat. They should have a decent sized yard to go out into, and should be exercised daily. Labrahounds can suffer from separation anxiety, and are very sensitive. Harsh training is not recommended with this mix. Overall, the Labrahound makes an excellent family dog and can adapt to most living situations, as long as they have adequate exercise each day.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Rhodesian Ridgeback
Rhodesian Labradors cross the Rhodesian Ridgeback with the Labrador Retriever. Rhodesian Labs will end up weighing more than their Lab parent, and will have slightly more protective instincts due to their Ridgeback parent. They will have shorter coats than most Labradors, but will still shed about as much. Both parent breeds are active, which means your Rhodesian Lab will likely be the same.
Rhodesian Labs can weigh anywhere between 60 and 80 pounds, depending on if they are male or female. They will be slightly more protective of their family and loved ones than a Lab will be. Their Ridgeback parent was bred to fight lions and be a protector. As a result, your Rhodesian Lab is going to have a strong-willed temperament, and will be a challenge to train. We dont recommend this mix for first-time dog owners. They also will have a stronger prey drive, and may not do well with other family pets.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Great Pyrenees
Pyradors combine the beautiful Great Pyrenees and the Labrador Retriever. Pyradors are a very balanced companion. Their Pyrenees parent has a more subdued temperament, which helps to calm down some of the higher energy levels their Labrador parent has in their early years. Pyradors are one of the more expensive mixes on this list. You wont be likely to find a Pyrador in a shelter, and more likely to have to pay a premium to find one at a breeder.
Pyradors are large dogs. Its not uncommon for Male Pyradors to top pounds or more. They are generally very healthy when compared to both parent breeds, and have less genetic health defects. Pyradors are friendly dogs, but because of their guardian instincts, they are slightly more reserved with strangers. They are also excellent with families, although be mindful if you adopt a Pyrador when you have small children, simply due to their size.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Chihuahua
Labrahuahuas are a combination of the Chihuahua and the Labrador. This mix is created with a Labrador mother, and a Chihuahua father. Their size makes this virtually the only way this mix can happen, unless you have an undersized maternal Labrador and an oversized paternal Chihuahua. Labrahuahuas are usually medium sized, weighing anywhere between 20 and 40 pounds depending on the gender of the dog.
Labrahuahuas are active dogs. They are resilient pups, and can live in a variety of different living conditions. Labrhuahuas will do well in just about any living situation, as long as they are near their owners. They are excellent family dogs, and shouldnt exhibit any of the aggressive traits that their Chihuahua parent notoriously carries. They are inexpensive dogs, and will likely live a long time, carrying very few (if any) of the health defects that their parents genetically carry.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Saint Bernard
Labernards combine the Saint Bernard and the Lab. This mix can be quite large, inheriting that size from their Saint Bernard parent. If they have a larger Labrador as the other parent, its not uncommon to see this mix get close to pounds or more. This is especially true with male Labernards who can run large.
Labernards are great family dogs and they are much more mellow than a purebred Labrador. Because their coats are longer, they will shed more frequently. Both parent breeds have double coats, and the Labrador is a well-known shedder. Labernards will do well in a house with a yard. They can handle apartment living, but because of their size are better with a little room to roam. Because of their size, they are better suited for families with children aged 5 and up.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Boerboel
Labraboels are a rarer mix, and occur when a Boerboel is crossed with a Labrador Retriever. Boerboels are typically not crossed with many other breeds. They are somewhat rare in the United States and they originally a South African dog breed. Because of their costs, they are less likely to be deliberately bred with a Labrador as a designer dog. Rather, they are likely to happen out in as nature during chance meetings. They will weigh between 60 and 90 pounds, depending on gender.
Labraboels are somewhat unpredictable, like their South African Mastiff parent. They have guardian instincts and will be deliberately protective of their families. Because they are a crossbreed, Labraboels will not inherit many of the degenerative health issues that both parent breeds carry. Labraboels need a big yard, preferably acreage to roam on. South African Mastiffs were bred to protect their land, and combined with the energy of the Labrador, these pups will need space to run.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and English Mastiff
Mastadors are one of the more common Mastiff mixes. They are typically adopted by owners looking to adopt a dog with Labrador traits but with a Mastiffs size. Mastadors are bigger dogs, typically weighing in upwards of pounds or more. They are even tempered, and can do well in just about any living situation.
Mastadors will have medium length coats. They can come in a variety of different colors, with Black being the most common. In fact, they are commonly mistaken for extremely large Black Labs. Its also possible for them to carry a lighter coat, or even a brindle colored coat. Mastadors are well suited to apartment living. While they will be more active when they are young, they calm down after year one and are essentially couch potatoes thereafter. Mastadors are wonderful with kids, and are generally healthy pups.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Schnauzer
The Schnauzador is a less common mix that blends the Giant Schnauzer and the Labrador. The Schnazuador will shed less than a purebred Lab, and have a shorter, wiry coat. They are easier to groom than their Lab parent and their coats also require less maintenance.
Schnauzadors are large dogs. They will end up weighing anywhere from 60 to 80 pounds when fully grown. Males will be larger than females. Schnauzadors are loyal family dogs that will do well with most families. If properly socialized early on, they will also get along quite well with other household pets.

Anatolian Shepherds are a unique breed that originates from Turkey. These shepherds are farm dogs that are used to protecting livestock. When crossbred with a Labrador, it produces the Anatolian Lab mix. The Anatolian Labrador will be more reserved with strangers and are very protective of their families. Once a stranger has been welcomed into the home, they will treat them just like family. Anatolian Labs will weigh between 60 and 90 pounds when fully grown, unless their Anatolian parent is on the smaller side.
Anatolian Labs need room to roam. Because of their Anatolian Shepherd parent, they are used to having farmland to roam, and livestock to protect. Anatolian Labs are very active dogs, and not suited to apartment living. As farm protectors, they will get along with other animals if properly socialized at an early age.
Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Vizsla
The Vizslador is a mix between the Labrador and the Hungarian Vizsla. This pup is often mistaken for a Weimaraner, as they are about the same size, and have similar coats. The Vizslador will vary in size, usually running about 40 to 60 pounds. Vizsladors are athletic dogs and extremely active, especially up until they reach about 3 years of age.
Vizsladors are versatile. Both parents are hunting dogs, so they will make an excellent hunting companion. They also do very well with families, and with other pets. Vizsladors can adapt well to apartment living

She was in another, more beautiful robe, her slender bare feet were spanking on the linoleum. And as usual, I gazed at this beautiful young woman. Naturally, then Mom allowed me to insert my fingers into her pussy when she stood with her back to me. I also brought her to orgasm, and she jerked me off before getting out of the bath.
