These dogs also have a particular affinity for the outdoors. If you love hiking and other outdoor activities, these dogs will gladly accompany you on the trip. This breed may not work with smaller pets, but they seem to get along awesomely with kids over 6 years old.

These dogs might fare okay in apartments, but they can be a little vocal. They do, however, work very well with kids and older adults.

These dogs are typically very family-friendly and get along great with other pets. Since both parent breeds are sometimes too intelligent for their own good, they are highly trainable with a love for new tasks.

These dogs are perfect matches for growing families, older adults, and singles. They mesh with just about any stranger, child, or creature. But keep in mind, every dog is unique, and some may be more reserved than others.

These dogs form intense bonds with owners and they take their roles in families seriously. However, because they are so large, they do best with older children. Especially when they are young, they might not exhibit body control during play.

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner
Height: 21 – 24 inches
Weight: 60 – 100 pounds

Labmaraners are packed with energy, so they will definitely benefit from having a job to do. These dogs are best fit for people who have active lifestyles so they can burn off some steam. This breed can get nervous and develop bad behaviors if left for long periods with no stimulation.

Because of their large size and vitality, they work best with older children and aren’t the best recommendation for older adults. They might also exhibit a high prey drive, rendering them incompatible with smaller pets.


24. Springador (Labrador Retriever x Springer Spaniel)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Springer Spaniel
Height: 18 – 24 inches
Weight: 50 – 90 pounds

Height: 25 – 28 inches
Weight: 55 – 100 pounds

However, the friendliness and even-tempered nature of the Lab bring a sweet element of tameness to this creature.

Looking for an agreeable temperament is paramount. These dogs will require lots of interaction with people and animals of all kinds.


27. Lab Pei (Labrador Retriever x Shar Pei)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei
Height: 18 – 25 inches
Weight: 45 – 60 pounds
Coat Colors: Fawn, sable, yellow, brown, black
Character: Reserved, cautious, loyal

The adorable, wrinkly Lab Pei is the product of mixing the Lab and Shar Pei. While every puppy can take traits from its parents, this combo seems to even the puppies out. They carry the amiable nature of the Lab to cancel out the potential aggression of the Shar-Pei parent.

These dogs can be great protectors and usually have good judgment. However, we recommend the Lab Pei for older kids.

Height: 24 – 27 inches
Weight: 75 – 85 pounds
Coat Colors: Brown, red, gray, black

The Labrakita is a very confident dog that works well with protection duties. If you want to have a dog who will guard the door and listen to commands, they fit the bill. But their Akita side can make them somewhat stubborn, which can make training difficult.

These dogs work best in households with older, mature children. They love being on the go, making them perfect hiking or outdoor companions.

Height: 25 – 27 inches

Character: Sensitive, ornery, independent

The Rhodesian Labrador is a combo of two beauties—the Lab and Rhodesian Ridgeback. These dogs are physically stunning, with athletic bodies and even coloring.

These dogs can be a challenge for novice dog owners because of their strong-willed nature. But people with previous dog experience can find the breed quite rewarding. Many puppies level out since they take on traits of both parents, but this breed is best for children 6 and older.


30. Schnauzador (Labrador Retriever x Schnauzer)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Schnauzer
Height: 12 – 20 inches
Weight: 30 – 45 pounds

These dogs are explorers at heart and absolutely love the great outdoors. Because of their inclination for nature, they do best in homes to come in and go out as they please. These dogs are excellent for any sized family—but not any size of living space.


32. Labraboel (Labrador Retriever x Boerboel)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Boerboel
Height: 23 – 28 inches

These dogs can be kind to children—and many females will even act motherly toward them. They take pride in keeping the little ones safe. They are playful but lazy and reserved but interactive. The Labraboel might be incompatible in same-sex pairs.

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Bloodhound

What do you get when you combine a top-notch sniffer with webbed toes? You get the Labloodhound. This dog has hunting roots so deep, you’ll never get them out. So don’t make the mistake of thinking they won’t always be sniffing and chasing potential ‘prey,’ even just during play.

These dogs are workers in the field, but they also love their human companions. Cuddly and affectionate, these dogs will lather you with love. This breed is best suited for country living.


34. Beagador (Labrador Retriever x Beagle)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Beagle

Coat Colors: Tricolor, black, chocolate, yellow, cream

Beagles and Labs both get tons of praise for being people-friendly, mild-tempered dogs with amiable personalities. So, it’s really no wonder this makes such a fabulous union. These dogs are small to medium-sized and will work well in plenty of homes.

This combo would make a terrific “first puppy” for the kids. However, they can make just as good of a fit for older adults or those who live in busy communities. Since they do have Beagle roots, they might howl a lot—so be mindful of this possibility.


35. Boxador (Labrador Retriever x Boxer)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Boxer
Height: 21 – 25 inches
Weight: 55 – 60 pounds

Character: Family-friendly, peppy, affectionate

The Boxador is a cheery companion animal that will keep you entertained. Both parent breeds have fun, goofy personalities that translate into this breed. They are generally inquisitive, happy-go-lucky, and free-spirited.

But we do have to mention that sometimes these dogs can show aggression if they aren’t socialized properly. Also, lack of stimulation might lead to unwanted destructive behaviors. These dogs are quite social and enjoy being around others at all times.


36. Afador (Labrador Retriever x Afghan Hound)

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Afghan Hound
Height: 24 – 27 inches
Weight: 50 – 70 pounds
Coat Colors: Black, red, cream, chocolate, yellow
Character: Aloof, silly, curious

The Afador is an exciting dog with various genetics at play. These dogs can have shorter hair, like the Lab parent, or long-flowing Afghan hair. These dogs are a bit shorter and stockier than the Afghan parent but are still graceful in their stride.

These dogs form close bonds with people in their immediate family. They can be accepting of newcomers once they become familiar—but they are generally standoffish with strangers until they get to know them.


37. Cavador (Labrador Retriever x Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)

These dogs can work well for apartment living, permitting they meet the weight requirements as adults. They also make great matches for small kids and retirees alike.

Hybrid: Labrador Retriever/Boston Terrier
Height: 13 – 17 inches
Weight: 17 – 20 pounds
Coat Colors: Black and white, black, merle, chocolate, yellow
Character: Bold, affectionate, attached

The Boston Lab is a chipper companion animal with wonderful personalities. These dogs are typically a smaller size, fitting somewhere between both parent breeds. They are perfect companion animals but might wag a tail at a robber rather than sound the attack.

Both parent breeds are amiable, but Boston Terriers can be a little bossy sometimes. The Lab half does a good job balancing these traits, but some might still be a little fiery from time to time—but usually, it’s all in good fun.

Final Thoughts

How many of these incredible Lab mixes did you write down for additional research? There sure are a lot to choose from. Labs lend a ton of personality and energy into the mix, leveling many dominant or finicky traits in other parent breeds.

If you love any of these dogs, you might be in luck. Lots of shelters have many lab mixes that need homes forever. It wouldn’t hurt to search if you would be willing to adopt instead of buying a pup from a breeder.
