hey guys. i was wondering if you could help me try and determine the breed of Lucky. I really don't know whether she's a pure labrador or a mix, nor do i really care (just curious). i have my guesses, but they are onlt guesses. i really do not know for sure what she is. i've never had testing done or anything like that. does she look too small to be a full lab? she has a very short coat too. what do you guys think?

Something to keep in mind, there's ALWAYS a chance there is much more than two breeds mixed together. Rarely is a dog a 50/50 mix.

Yes, this is very true indeed. Those are the two prominent breeds I see in her.

Have you ever tried one of those DNA kits that you send in to find out the breed. I think their a bit expensive though.

I'd guess either lab/pointer or lab/pit or a combo of all three! Definitely not a purebred though :smile:

Maybe lab/boxer? I think if he was lab/pit, he'd be a bit stockier.
the first pic looks like your dog, no?

yes they do look alike. Lucky uses her hands (paws) a lot too like boxers do. i was thinking pit. when she pants, she really has a wrinkled forehead and a skull of a pit.

here are some lab pit mix photos i found that i think look like her;

Might be all three: pit/lab/boxer, who knows?

Oh yeah I could see boxer mixed in there as a possibility for sure! Boxers have really weak genes so if they're crossed with anything that smooshy face goes right out the window.
