Labrador Hound mixes are difficult to describe and predict when it comes to things like their size and physical features. There are way too many variables especially the fact that the mix can be with a number of unique hound breeds that come in different sizes, shapes, and colors.
However, looking at the most common pairings involving hounds like the Basset Hound, Bloodhound, and Coonhound, there are a few features that you may expect. Here is an overview of what you have to look forward to.
Labrador Hound mixes vary from medium-sized dogs to large pooches depending on the hound they are mixed with.
When Basset Hounds are used for the mix, the resulting Bassador is likely going to be smaller than a purebred Labrador Retriever and will usually range between 40 to 60 lbs in weight and 13 to 20 inches in height.
If the mix is with a Coonhound, on the other hand, the Lab Hound mix will fall in a 50 to 80 lbs and 20 to 22 inch size bracket.
The largest Labrador Hounds result from mixing with the bloodhound. These mixed doggies can grow up to 100 lbs and 30 inches.
Both Labradors and members of the Hound group are very athletically built. The Lab Hound mix takes after this with a muscular form that may be compact and proportional like the Labrador and the basset’s or a bit longer and narrower as is the case with sighthounds like the greyhound.
Facial And Skull Features
These are the most unpredictable of them all as Labradors are drastically different in appearance to all hound variations. The best way to summarize this is that the final result in the Labrador Hound mix’s appearance depends entirely on genetics and chance.
