    DefaultWhat makes her look mixed?

    My latest foster is a purebred lab- I foster with a guide dog organization, so the dogs aren't bred for conformation but I do know that she is purebred. What in her face makes her look almost shar-pei or pit? Just curious... I'm sure she's nowhere near proper conformation but I'm trying to pinpoint it. Her ears are the right size(as in they stretch to her inner eyes when extended)... is her earset just too high?




    when her ears aren't "excited" she looks much more labby. Any thoughts?

    Yeah, the ears do seem to be set a little high. But, who cares? She's a doll!

    Oh I definitely dont mind! Bubba (in my signature) was my previous foster dog, who just went to final training today and I just got her. I was forever comparing his features to labs but he was half golden so who knows what came from where. As soon as I realized she wasnt a cross I started analyzing, just for fun

    I see what you mean - it's the mid face area, through the eyes that is different than some other Labs. She does not have a soft expression. But - she is a cutey regardless and I am sure she is a great worker.

    She is adorable! Yes, I would say that it is her high ear set that gives her that look. Have fun with her!!!

    Just a few more! Shes beginning to look a lot more labby to me when I glance at her, not that it matters. She has been amazing! One week in and she literally has not picked up a single object that isnt one of her toys- for an 11 month old lab, I think that's pretty amazing

    She's all Lab and adorable. The pigment is what is making her seem different and I would bet money she simply has a chocolate recessive gene in her and that pigment. Good for you for keeping her!!

    I think it's the ears in the first picture that makes her look mixed. Congratulations on your new dog!
