The Labrador is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Bernese Mountain Dog. Affectionate, intelligent and friendly, these puppies have inherited some of the best qualities of their parents. The Labrador is a very large breed that makes an excellent and affectionate family pet. They are exceptionally friendly and very sociable, to the point that they can develop separation anxiety if left alone for too long. Therefore, if you have a boisterous and always active family, the Labrador could be a smart addition to the household. Because of the breed’s size and energy level, they require a lot of exercise. If you have a runner at home, they will soon become running companions.
Laberneses are mixed breed dogs. The most common color of the Labernese is black, although the breed can also have patches in shades of chocolate, white and yellow. The Labernese’s coat is of medium length and is usually described as dense and somewhat wavy in texture. This is a breed that sheds a lot – you will want to commit to daily brushing sessions.Labernese dogs and children are a natural pair. This breed is social and friendly and will love to engage in play sessions with children. But be careful: due to the dog’s large size, supervision is advised when playing with very small children.Like most large dogs, the Labernese will need plenty of exercise to keep in top condition. A fenced yard will be great, but even better will be access to a park with off-leash hours.
The Labrador’s history dates back to the 1990s, when the Mira Foundation of Canada began breeding the dog with the intention of creating the best possible dog to help disabled and blind people. The Labrador Retriever also originated in Canada, where it was bred to assist in hunting and retrieving before being recognised as a guide dog. Today, the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dogs in the United States. The Bernese Mountain Dog was originally bred to assist in livestock work in the Swiss Alps. The Labrador has become 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 Labernese to your home.
