One of the most popular Lab crosses is the gorgeous Labradoodle, which combines the Labrador and the Poodle. Labradoodles generally have curly hair but can also inherit the Lab’s coat, which is straight and sheds frequently. Their coat and shedding frequency will determine if they’re suitable for owners with allergies.

Labradoodle owners describe them as having incredibly trainable, heartwarming personalities. They are so wonderful with people that many Labradoodles are trained in service roles, helping people with emotional and physical struggles.

The Australian Shepherd Labrador Retriever can display several coat colors and may have a genetic trait that gives them one blue eye. This occurrence is called heterochromia. The Aussiedor is a very adventurous hybrid that is always on the move and alert. Because of their energetic nature, they do well with complicated training. They thrive in homes where they have tasks to perform.

The Afador can have shorter hair, like the Lab parent, or long-flowing Afghan hair. They are a bit shorter and stockier than the Afghans but are still graceful in their stride. They form close bonds with people in their immediate family.

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 with a wonderful personality. They are smaller hybrids due to their Boston Terrier traits. 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 balances these traits well, but some might still be a little feisty occasionally.

Final Thoughts

How many incredible Lab mixes did you write down for additional research? There are several to choose from, and picking a favorite can be challenging. 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 can visit shelters and rescue to find Lab mixes that need forever homes. It’s less expensive to adopt a dog instead of buying a pup from a breeder.
