Description

The Labradinger is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the English Springer Spaniel 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.

Princess the chocolate Labrador / Springer Spaniel mix (Labradinger) puppy at 3 months old—"Her siblings looked more like chocolate Labs. One had a white spot on his chest. Another was darker brown/black with brown markings on her face. Our “Princess” was the only spotted one. Her mother was the Springer Spaniel and she only had a small area of spots and was mostly black. So far, Princess has a great personality and is calm but playful especially in the morning. She taught herself to retrieve items at 2 ½ mos. She does love to chew on things. She also has one brown eye and one blue eye."
