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.

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).

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.
