< back to Dog Breeds A to Z
The Labrador is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Great Dane breeds. Loyal, affectionate and playful, these puppies have inherited some of their parents’ best qualities. Labradors are known to be gentle giants who bond with adults and children alike. The breed is very social and will always be willing to hang out with you. The dog’s extra large size makes it a hit with passers-by when out for a walk. Just remember that this is a very large dog, and he will need adequate space both inside your home and outside for exercise.
The Labradoodle emerged during the designer dog craze of the 1980s. According to some accounts, its origin was an attempt to capitalise on the tendency of owners to want smaller dogs, rather than giant breeds such as the Great Dane. The Labrador was formerly called the St. John’s dog and was often used by fishermen to help retrieve the day’s catch that had escaped. Despite being a designer dog breed, many Labradors, unfortunately, end up in shelters. So consider contacting local rescue groups and shelters if you are thinking of adding the Labradoodle to your home.
