Bella the Australian Kelpie x Labrador Retriever mix breed dog at 4 years old—"I got Bella for myself as a graduation present and she continues to amaze me everyday. She was so easy to train and picked up small tricks like shaking, get a drink, into bed, so quickly. She is very obedient, never barks, is always friendly to people and other animals and absolutely loves the beach and park. Shes also a very cooperative model as you can see in the picture. Her big smile, gorgeous brown eyes and happy nature make her a big hit with everyone she meets."


The Kelpie Lab is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Australian Kelpie and the Labrador Retriever. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
