|There are NO "half-wolf, half-lab" dogs out there. Any dog being called that is from owner ignorance. a lot of people think any nordic-type dog is a wolf-hybrid, my Ginger got called one several times (usually got called a coyote mix, but heard wolf too.) And there may be cases of actual wolfdogs (NOT pure wolves) breeding with Labs, but again, not common. Most "wolfdogs" being advertised for sale are of questionable heritage, and often have little or no wolf blood.
Wild wolves don't breed with domestic dogs, let's put that one to rest. Pure wolves in captivity are unlikely to breed with dogs either. Even real wolfdogs being sold are almost always f2 or lower.
The dog offered as a "wolador" on that site likely has no wolf blood at all, much less be an F1 wolf-lab cross. They got snookered, like most "wolfdog" owners!
Here's a neat "how to spot a real wolf" article (from Wolf Park):
