Black Lab Mixes

Hardworking, friendly, and affectionate, Black Lab mixes are some of the best pups for canine lovers of all walks of life. These dogs are versatile all-rounders that will be more than happy whether on an outdoor adventure or a cozy time at home.

The Pugador is a compact pooch with the Lab’s proportionate body shape and a Pug’s signature overbite. If you prefer a hypoallergenic black Lab mix, then a Labradoodle is a fine choice with a Poodle’s tight, low-shedding curls. Huskadors, on the other hand, are for active folks who love an agile and active pooch.

Get to know more about these Black Lab mixes – they may come in just one shade, but their personalities are every color of the rainbow!

The Labrakita has the muscular build of an Akita and the distinct puppy-dog eyes of a Labrador. It also possesses a fox-like appearance, such as a long snout and triangular, erect ears. Think of an Akita in a black coat, and that’s how we picture a Labrakita to be!

Although this pooch has a short coat, some shedding may still be expected. Daily brushing is ideal for keeping the fur under control.

Boradors are a combination of Labradors and Border Collies. These pooches are medium-sized canines that can grow up to 80 lbs, since both parents are not your small and compact dog breeds.

Because of their dense double coats, these dogs are moderate shedders, with more shedding going on in the fall and spring. They require regular grooming to keep them looking nice and sharp.

44. Goldador: Black Labrador + Golden Retriever

When you mix two of the world’s most popular dog breeds – the Black Labrador and the Golden Retriever – this results in the gorgeous Goldador. They are large and robust pups weighing as much as 90 lbs.

Bright and sunny, Goldadors are excellent companions for your outdoor adventures. They need a couple of hours of exercise daily to keep them physically fit. Training is also relatively easy with these dogs because of their intelligence and eagerness to please their owners.

43. Beagador: Black Labrador + Beagle

Think of a Beagle’s floppy ears and rectangular face in the body of a Labrador (except more compact), and you’ve got a charming Beagador. If you prefer a small four-legged pal, this Black Lab mix is perfect, as it should not go over 24 inches tall and weigh about 40 lbs.

Folks with limited space in their home and yard should be perfect fur parents to this mixed breed. A Beagador, however, can be a challenge to train because of its stubborn streak, so an experienced owner is a better fit for this pooch.

Tall and lean, the Malinois Black Lab mix possesses the Malinois’ lean and muscular build and a Labrador’s big, floppy ears. This dog is pretty large, which is why a roomy yard and indoor space are a must to keep them happy and content.

These short-coated pups are a good choice for people who don’t like dealing with many shedding issues. They still shed but only seasonally and not as profusely as densely-coated canines.

40. Whipador: Black Labrador + Whippet

A Labrador crossed with a Whippet results in a streamlined Whipador. This pup looks like a lankier Lab or a more meaty Whippet. The head is bulbous with upright ears, somewhat in-between rounded and long.

If you want a dog that loves the great outdoors, then you will find the Whipador a fine choice for you. This is the kind of pooch that you can go hiking and running with or take on your road trips because of its adventurous spirit.

39. Woflador: Black Labrador + Grey Wolf

Image from Instagram:@breannaleigh88

The Wolfador is not your ordinary Black Lab mix. This pooch is quite rare and with an unpredictable personality, depending on which parent has a more dominant gene. For instance, it may look more like a wolf with a denser coat and pointy snout or closer to a Lab’s appearance with a shorter coat and drop ears.

As for the temperament, Wolfladors may either be outgoing as a Labrador or more reserved and shy like a Grey Wolf. Early training is a must for these pups, especially while living with younger kids and other household pets under the same roof.

Scruffy like a Shih Tzu and with a well-proportioned body shape like a Labrador, a Labratzu is one unique pooch. It is a compact, hairy fellow that should fit perfectly well in a modest-sized home.

Easy-going Labratzus should not be a problem with younger children as these dogs are mellow-tempered and patient with little ones. They should be fine with moderate exercise daily and would be more than happy with quiet times at home.

36. Labernard: Black Labrador + Saint Bernard

Image from Instagram:@brunothelabernard

Massive and bulky, the Labernard is a fascinating combination of Saint Bernard and Black Labrador. Think of it as a hairier and larger Labrador, yet with a puppy-like personality. In fact, most Labernards behave like giant lap dogs because of their affectionate nature.

Although these dogs are not quite as densely-coated as a Saint Bernard, Labernards still shed more than a purebred Lab. They need daily brushing and grooming to keep the shedding under control and away from your furniture.

35. Rottador: Black Labrador + Rottweiler

Image from Instagram:@mama_and_the_goslings

Rottadors are large-pawed, round-faced, bulky-bodied pups that are a fascinating mix of the Black Labrador and the Rottweiler. They have rounded ears as a Rottweiler but floppy as a Lab. As for their build, they are large and powerful with defined muscles.

34. Pitador: Black Labrador + American Pitbull Terrier

Unlike a purebred Pitbull, the Pitador has a narrower face and a more proportionate body. It still has a Pittie’s muscular build but is less stocky and leaning more toward a lanky body shape as a Labrador.

Affectionate and loving, owners can easily fall in love with a Pitador’s sweet demeanor. They do require ample exercise daily to prevent boredom that leads to undesirable behaviors.

33. Chabrador: Black Labrador + Chow Chow

Image from Instagram:@chowbradorblu

Chabradors are like fluffy Labs because of Chow Chow’s dense and profuse coat. They possess a Chow’s neck ruff and deep facial wrinkles, making them look like black lions. With that in mind, heavy shedding issues are to be expected from these doggos.

In terms of personality, Chabradors are reserved and independent fellows. They are not quite happy-go-lucky and laid-back as a Lab but a bit more aloof as a Chow Chow. This is why they are better off in a home without other pets or young children around.

32. Pointerdor: Black Labrador + Pointer

Image from Instagram:@randy_thelabpointer

If a sporting dog is what you look for, then the Pointerdor is a perfect match for your needs. This pooch has a Pointer’s lean body and a Labrador’s round eyes and floppy ears. The coat is short and smooth, which makes it low-maintenance and requires minimal grooming.

Alaskan Maladors are thick-coated pups that can be as tall as 25 inches at the shoulder and weigh a little over 100 lbs. They have a double coat that needs frequent brushing. With that being said, this is not the kind of pet for folks with allergies.

Smart and trainable, Maladors can easily learn new tricks and commands. They are, however, more suitable for experienced owners because of their stubborn streak.

A fun mix between a wrinkly-faced Bulldog and a short-coated Lab, this pooch is a charming crossbreed for canine lovers. This is a fairly low-maintenance pup that needs very minimal grooming and weekly brushing.

7. Springador: Black Labrador + Springer Spaniel
