Me and my wife just got a "black lab mix" puppy from the spca. Bo was a drop off at the spca so they don't know for sure what his parents were but I have been looking at a lot of pictures online of black lab puppies and I am really wondering if maybe Bo isn't a pure lab. Some of the pictures I've seen of pure blooded black labs around Bo's age look pretty much identical to him to my eye but I'm certainly no expert.
I wanted to get opinions and figured this would be a good place to do it....I know pictures can only go so far but based on what you can see of him is there anything that would make you think he's not a pure black lab? The spca said he would probably reach between 60 and 80 pounds when he's full grown and he is currently about 8 and a half weeks old.
I appreciate any responses, it's not really a big deal but I am curious about him now.
I was thinking Boxer as well, because of his 'high' ears and his tail seems to be very thin rather than a 'lab like' otter tail lol. Otherwise he looks pretty much identical to a lab. He is a cutie pie!!! Love him :P
I would have to chime in with everyone else about the ears being a little high. Boxer maybe, but I think there are a couple of hounds that have those ears too. If there is any hound you'll know it when he barks. Believe me, we have one.
