It seems every dog I meet that is of unkown breeding (i.e. mix from the pound) they say it's lab/x. There are few exceptions to this.
Would this be because there are so many labs out there it makes sense alot of mixes have lab in them? Or are we just labeling everything "lab X" because labs are known to be "safe" pleasant dogs?
I'm not expert but sometimes I just scratch my head because the "lab" part of the dog is not obvious!

We always joke around about this...seems that many people when faced with an unknown breed, stick to labeling it lab mix :-\
I think them saying a dog is a Lab X is become a catch-all for the ones they have no clue what they are. Then again, maybe they think by saying it is a Lab X will get them adopted faster, cause some many people love labs.

I agree with wha Lexis Mom said, but there are more lans in the US than any other breed.

I know for sure these two that I picked up are Lab X's. They look just like Bo... lol
When we adopted Bella from the shelter (almost 6 years ago), they called her a lab/rottie mix. We've never been too sure about the lab part - she does have a fairly labby head, but not much in terms of lab behavior (she has no retrieving drive at all). She definitely seems to have a more of a rottie personality.
