Labrador Mixes: A Guide To 26 Different Lab Mix Breeds

Sharing is caring!

The Labrador Retriever has been the favorite dog of families around the world for many years. These dogs adore their owners, especially children, and do not like to be left alone for too long.

Labradors are medium-sized, athletic dogs. They are known for their mild characters and tenderness, but behind the beautiful temperament, hides a dog that was once a hunting dog.

Therefore, Labradors are still working dogs and are excellent in jobs such as rescue, search, and working as police dogs. Although Labradors are mostly family dogs today, these dogs still love to be busy!

Given the great characteristics of this dog, the popularity of the Labrador Retriever is not surprising.

Some dog lovers adore Labradors but would like to change or add something to them, for example, they would like them to be a little smaller, to have slightly different fur, or have some of their character traits more emphasized.

For this reason, the Labrador has been crossed with a large number of other dog breeds, thanks to which, we have various Labrador mixes today.

Beagador dogs get along with children and other pets too. They are very loyal and protective, so you can relax because your doggy will take good care of your property!

A Beagador’s body structure is more like a Beagle, rather than a Labrador Retriever. The important trait of this dog’s character is his loyalty, which goes so far that a Beagador will usually be very sad if you leave him alone for a couple of hours.

Some of them might even suffer from separation anxiety if they don’t see their owner for a longer period of time. This is why this mixed dog is not the right choice for people with a busy schedule that spend most of their time away from the house.

Since one of the Rottador’s parents is a Rottweiler, you must be asking the same questions for this mixed dog breed, too.
