The Labrabull is a hybrid breed. His parents are the Labrador Retriever and the American Pit Bull. He is a medium-sized dog, albeit he is on the large end of the scale. He is generally a friendly dog; however, he may require some socialization in order to learn what is expected of him. He is not a good "first dog," and most experts believe that potential owners should have some experience with dogs before owning a Labrabull. He is also a rather active dog, much like his Labrador Retriever parent. He might be prone to some weight gain if he is not given ample daily exercise. He does well in an apartment or in a fenced-in yard; keep in mind that he may tend to wander without a fence.

Labrabull Breed History

There is not a lot of information regarding the history of the Labrabull itself; however, we can learn about the history of the two parent breeds in order to understand the origins of the hybrid breed. The Labrador Retriever can trace its origins back to the Newfoundland area of Canada. He was originally referred to as a St. John's dog, and later, he was interbred with local water dogs and the Newfoundland dog to produce what we know today as the Labrador Retriever. Labs are one of the most popular breeds in the United States today, but in the 1880s, the Labrador Retriever was on the brink of extinction.. The Labrador is invaluable as a drug or explosive detection dog, therapy dog, and assistant to the handicap. Of course, he remains a great hunting companion. The American Pit Bull is often associated with negative connotations, and he was originally bred for bull and bear-baiting. Eventually these sports were labeled inhumane, and the dog was used as a farm dog. He was a superior guardian and provided companionship to his owners. Some use the American Pit Bull for boar hunting. The history of the parent breeds contributes to the personality of the Labrabull seen today; active, intelligent and brave are traits seen in the hybrid.

Labrabull Breed Appearance

The exact height and weight of the Labrabull is dependent upon the dominant parent breed. Some Labrabulls weigh as little as forty-five pounds; others weigh up to ninety pounds. He typically has short hair, and he may be a variety of colors. He may be white, gray, brown, yellow, or silver. He may also be any of these colors mixed with white markings. He will have a powerful, strong head and neck. Often, he will have medium-sized ears that hang on either side of his head. He may have a black nose or may be seen with one that is brown in color. This is another trait dependent upon the parent breed. Some variations in coat are black with white spots, especially a white blaze on the face and chest. He will have a long, straight tail. His body will be muscular and sturdy, though agile.

Labrabull Breed Maintenance

The Labrabull is generally a low-maintenance dog. He will have short hair on a dense coat. Nevertheless, he is not hypoallergenic. He will need to be brushed at least once a week with a bristle brush to loosen and get rid of the dead hair in his coat. Bathe him only when necessary, but, should you be concerned about doggy odor, you can bathe him with a dry shampoo. Check his ears for odor and redness; these are signs of infection. Once every two weeks, use a damp cotton ball to wipe out his ears. Trim his nails every two or three weeks; in fact, if you hear his nails clicking on the floor, it is time to clip his nails. Brush his teeth two or three times a week in order to prevent bad breath or dental disease. Begin grooming him at an early age in order to get him used to the process.

Labrabull Temperament

One great way to get an idea of how your Labrabull will act is to observe his parents. Should you be unable to do this, be sure to give your pup as much early socialization as possible in order to teach him how you'd like him to behave. The Labrabull can be a very friendly, affectionate dog - even with strangers. He generally gets along with other dogs and people too. He is good with children, and is often very protective of them. However, if he feels threatened (by a stranger), he may become aggressive. He truly wants to please his owner and will go to great lengths to do so. He does have a great deal of energy, and he needs regular exercise. He loves to have fun with his family.

Labrabull Activity Requirements

The Labrabull is a highly active dog. He will need at least one hour (maybe more!) of daily activity in order to work off any nervous energy. Remember, a Lab loves to chew - so does the Labrabull. Activities that stimulate his mind might also be a good idea. He will enjoy trips to the dog park, and he will enjoy playing with other dogs. He loves fetch, and he will play tug of war until you are worn out. In reality, he should have a large home with a big backyard in which he can play, but he can live in an apartment provided he is given ample exercise.

We got butterscotch as a puppy and trained the chase instinct out of her by playing fetch (okay to chase a ball, not okay to chase cats, dogs ect). She took to training very well and can do several basic tricks for praise alone. She is very lean and active, seriously the fastest dog playing fetch I've ever seen, we get compliments on how fast she runs everytime we go to the dog park. The biggest problem is that she is so driven in playing that she blew out her left ccl (dog's version of the acl) which required a 6k dollar surgery a year ago, she is fully healed from that operation and it doesn't seem to have slowed her down at all, however recently she seems to be limping on her right leg and we are afraid that she may have blown that one out as well. We have seen other apbt have this problem too, I'm assuming it's their excessively high energy level and their ability to ignore pain when in play mode. I will be looking for another labrabull in the future, despite the ccl problems she has just been so great with everyone she meets, especially our little nieces and nephews who like her have that limitless energy to play together.

Stewart is very lazy. He is friendly to every one and everything he comes in contact with. He is the type of dog that you could put in a room with a bunch of toddlers and he would lay down and take whatever they had in store. Stewart is very good driven and will do just about anything for a snack. He is a creature of opportunity, if you are an unsuspecting child with a donut... he is watching you. He is a snorer and does not like to cuddle while he sleeps. Stewart loves to take long walks and go on car rides. He is also very large, weighing in at 125lbs. His vet thinks he is English Labrador / Pit.

We had a 13 year old labrabull. Best dog you'd every meet. She got skin cancer, and after a year fighting it, we ended up having to put her down. We recently rescued a puppy a few months back. She is young, but is proving to be every bit as wonderful of a dog as Lucy. Same great temperament.

I got stitch when he was 8 weeks old he came in biting and peeing all over the place, his puppy months were horrible and no one in the house wanted him but me. I worked very hard to end his chewing phase, he stopped around 6-7 months old but he was never agressive just very nippy. Stitch has made major improvement recently, he's matured alot. He is about 80 pounds, not very tall. He is the sweetest most loving dog towards people. The only agression I've seen from him was towards unneutered Male's, as he is unneutered himself.

This is my second labrabull that I’ve owned and the similarities are strikingly similar. Major is on the bigger end of the spectrum but that doesn’t stop him from being the biggest love bug on the planet. He is very friendly and loves to play with other dogs. I am very happy to have such an awesome dog. He is very energetic and loves to be taken outside constantly, even if it’s just to go run and play for half an hour. He is very well mannered but struggles with training due to past bad habits his previous owners gave to him.

My Labrabull is my favorite dog of all time. She is smart, loyal, funny, easy to train even at 4 years old, and she loves her family and would do anything to protect us. She also loves cuddling and she can never get enough pettings in. She is super great with little ones and adults however she is very timid of other dogs at first and doesn't care too much for male dogs. You will find that this breed of dog will quickly become your best friend and you will be wondering how you were able to live life without them before. Definitely a great family dog or just a dog for someone who is looking for a super cute, fun, and extremely loyal dog.

I adopted Kaden from an animal shelter. When i first got him, he was very very timid and quite. He did not bark until about two weeks after I got him. He is a very active dog and i take him to the park, walk him around my neighborhood, and things like that. He never barks when other dogs are around and he doesn’t like when dogs bark at him. If a dog barks at him he will run back to me and wait until we walk away or the dog does. But he does interact with dogs. If he deems the dog acceptable and none- threatening then he will engage. The main issue im having with him is that his nails grow so fast. I have had him for two months and had them trimmed twice and he has an appointment to get then cut again in a week. He loved to play so his nails hinder that sometimes. Training him has been hard ao i would definitely insist to have a professional train your labrabull.

She is the least aggressive dog I've ever had. Very easy going, affectionate does not even cover it...she LOVES her people. Even likes new dogs coming to her house to play. She can be very excitable though and I have to keep an eye out with her around small or older people (not for fear of bites but more getting knocked down when she plays).
