What makes up the Labrabull breed?
Labrabulls are a mix between the labrador retriever and the American pitbull terrier. They are a wonderful mix, it is a shame they are not recognized as purebred category in their own right.
My own experiences with a labrabull..
I own a labrabull named Alex, his mother is a black lab and the father is a brindle pitbull terrier. His coloring is awesome with black and white stripes sometimes called the cow patch. He shares physical features of both breeds. His temperament is those of a guard dogs, his protective instincts kick in if a stranger approaches. He does not bite but barks and makes a protective stand. The long defined nose of a labrador’s gives him the scent advantage. He picked up his weight from his father’s side and only weighs in about 56 pounds. Pictures of my labrabull are posted along with this post.
Why labrabulls make great pets..
Labrabulls are the best of both breeds, they are highly intelligent and very protective of their family. Their guarding instincts come from the pitbull side of the family. Labrabulls are very gentle with children and other family members just like the labradors. Their coats are short like pitbulls and dense like labradors which makes it very silky smooth and soft. Labrabulls do not tend to stray from home and make great companions. Labrabulls are very affectionate, easy to train and make great family dogs.
Labrabulls are not for you if you can’t cope with the following..
One draw back is that their weight and height are not predictable and can reflect either mother’s or father’s side. Temperament will depend on how the dog is raised as they may share the pit bulls hardy qualities. You have to show leadership qualities and set them straight at a young age. They do not handle separation very well, they will clock your daily routine. They will be irritated if you do not come home on time so if you take long vacations be sure to either bring him or her or leave him or her with family.
What colors do labrabulls come in?
They can come in a variety of colors hence you can even find a chocolate Labrabull. They usually share mixed colors so there is one for everyone. You can find many of them at your local animal shelter so if you can rescue one more props to you, there is nothing like saving a life.
