The Chabrador is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Chow Chow and Labrador Retriever dog breeds. Loyal, friendly and independent, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents. Chow chowers are also known as Labradors and sometimes chowbradors. You can find these mixed breed dogs at shelters and breed-specific rescues, so remember to always adopt. Chabradors make excellent family pets if you are looking for a dog that is equal parts companion and guardian. These dogs also adopt some of the lower maintenance traits of their parent breeds, requiring much less in the way of grooming and exercise needs than the Chow Chow and Labrador Retriever respectively.


The Chabrador is a mixed breed dog. They are not pure breeds like their Chow Chow or Labrador Retriever parents. In general, you are likely to find Labradors that come in colors that include light tan, black, gold, cream, blue, and a reddish brown. The coat is usually solid, although it is sometimes spotted. Chabradors have a dense, double-coated, waterproof coat of short to medium length. This breed has a lot of shedding. Brushing sessions should be done at least twice a week. The Labrador can be an agile canine when performing guard dog duties. They also tend to be wary when strangers approach them for the first time. A well-trained Labrador can be a great addition to a family and will form strong and loyal bonds with your children. Their guarding instincts will also be activated if strangers are nearby. In general, Labradors need moderate amounts of exercise. As long as you can commit to regular walking sessions, these dogs can usually adapt to living in smaller homes.


The paternal heritage of the Chabrador is highly esteemed and revered. As for the Chow Chow, we are talking about one of the oldest dog breeds dating back more than 2,000 years in China, where they were especially loved by the ancient emperors. These dogs were often used as guardians of sacred temples, and their scenting abilities were used in hunting. As for the Labrador Retriever, this breed originated in Canada and was originally known as the St. John’s dog. A highly skilled hunting and working dog, the Labrador Retriever is often cited as the most popular dog in the United States today. The Labrador has become known as a designer dog breed, but many of them, unfortunately, end up in shelters. So consider contacting local rescue groups and shelters if you are thinking of adding the Labrador to your home.
