Ben the Labrador Retriever / Pitbull Terrier mix at 15 months old
The Labrabull is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the American Pit Bull Terrier. 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 any of the breeds in the hybrid. 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.

"This is Titan, our yard statue. He is a seven-year-old Pit Bull / Lab mix and is the biggest baby you’ll ever meet! He loves to play with his pink Care Bear and sit on the edge of the front porch watching cars and people go by."
"My dog is Solo; she is a Pitbull / Lab mix, shown here at 1 year old. I got her when she was 10 weeks old from a rescue shelter where she was born.
A little info:
- VERY playful with a lot of energy
- tries to befriend almost any animal (cats, dogs, lizards, rabbits etc)
- very friendly with people, children and elderly (jumps a little when young, but never has on children)—even very gentle around newborns and infants
- LOVES the water and snow
- not good for small apartment life
- will bark if something is heard in nighttime, or if there is a knock at the door, but not a big barker
- VERY easily trained, LOVES to do tricks for treats, smart! (not many puppy problems—housetrained in 2 days)
- sheds normal amount
- high pain tolerance, and strong (and FAST!)
-comedian dog, likes to make you laugh
- has only become protective when another dog tried to fight our Jack Russell; other than that she loves all other dogs.
- at 1 year old she weighs about 55 lbs.
- her brothers and sisters were black, black and white, tan, grey and brown
-very affectionate, shows most affection toward owner rather than everyone."
"This is my best friend Eli. He's about 9 months in this picture. His mother is a chocolate Lab and his father is a Pit Bull. I'm not sure where those crazy ears came from, but they're his most charming feature. Eli has made me a former Pit Bull-a-phobe (yeah, I made that term up). I was one of those people that insisted Pit Bulls were mean by nature. Nothing could be further from the truth. I used to have a purebred yellow Lab, the prototypical "family" dog. Eli has all the legendary Labrador energy, intelligence and love of life, combined with an unbelievably sweet, affectionate disposition and tons of loyalty that my old "family" dog never had. He's a great watchdog too—very alert and on top of things when strangers come around, yet he'll immediately relax and go into good doggie mode the instant he gets the sense from me that this person is okay. I won't deny there are plenty of wonderful breeds out there, but when asked, I recommend the Labrabull every time. He likes a lot of exercise and loves walks, especially when I can let him off his leash to run. The bottom line: Best...Doggie...Ever!"
