    DefaultDoes this look like a purebred lab to you?

    I love this pup, but his fur is a little longer than I've seen on other labs and his tail seems bushier...do you think he's a full lab or does he look mixed? (you can see him better in the video link). I'm pretty sure the other pup in the video (caleb) is from the same litter.

    Could be, but I keep thinking I see a little German Shepherd in them.

    Yeah, my h pointed out how his tail curls up sort of like a husky. We're thinking mix too.

    The curly, furry tail indicates he's a mix. They're really cute and it would be great to adopt him!

    Definitely a mix, but who cares? You're not planning on showing or breeding and he needs you - go for it!

    I was worried that a mix may affect temperment. We have 3 kids and decided on a lab because of their temperment. I guess the foster parent of the dog could tell me more about that particular dog.

    He's a cutie - you should go meet him. His foster will know what he is like and you will be able to get a feel for his personality.

    On the mix affecting temperament idea - I would disagree. The very best dog I ever had was a collie/lab cross. You can find temperament issues in purebred dogs as easily as you can find them in mixes. If a breeder is not careful to select for temperament it does happen - there are nasty Labs.

    That puppy is adorable and I agree with Sharon; any dog can have a bad temperment. This one needs a home, go meet him, talk to the foster family and you may well end up with one of the best dogs possible. There is a reason he was put in your path...
    Good luck!

    Cute puppy!! I agree with the others - don't write a dog off because s/he is a mix. Now if you found out the dog did have issues with kids, then obviously keep looking. But I would suggest contacting the rescue and finding out if the puppy has been around children. Foster homes often have a TON more info than what's listed on the Petfinder page.. otherwise there would be a 5 page novel per dog!
