Golden cross Labrador

Hello guys... we have thought of adopting a new puppie and member of our family.
we have seen a golden cross labrador, but we have hesistates about this, because I have heard sometimes that the golden cross labrador can be dangerous or bad dog. this is true?

I don't really approve of mixing breeds intentionally, because you lose a lot of the consistency and predictability you get from matching up two good dogs of the same breed. That said, I can't think of any reason a Golden/Lab cross would be dangerous.

I am agree with you when you say "mixing breeds intentionally" but we have seen that 8 puppies (golden/lab cross) have been abandoned... and we have thought of this chance... I really love the pure golden breed and it's the reason why I have wrote this post!!

I know that a lot of people use to talk without knowing what they are saying...and maybe here there's someone who has a golden/lab!

Oh, heck, if they're already alive and in need of homes, go grab one! You can temperament test puppies pretty reliably if you're concerned about it.

i wonder how a rumor would start about the two best breeds suddenly being "bad" when together

i own a golden/lab mix and i can tell you she's the best dog in the world. wonderful temperment, very affectionate and loving. now, she's got an energy level that will tire out even the most energetic person, but, if you are ok with that i can't imagine not helping one of those puppies find a home.


my cutie -


A quote from Trixie - Am thinking about bacon. Bacon is very good. I am good too, me, Trixie Koontz, dog. People call me "good dog, very good." Bacon is very good. But I am not bacon. Why not? Mysterious.

My very first dog as a kid was a golden retriever/yellow lab mix and he was the greatest dog. He lived to be 12. Most of them are very energetic, but I think it's one of the greatest mixes of 2 breeds. I have never heard of them being aggressive. Ours certainly wasn't, but he could play fetch for hours and hours. Just like with any breed, it all depends on the individual dog and how it is raised. If these pups are in desperate needs of good homes, go for it.

Bogey's best friend Tessa is a golden/lab mix and we LOVE her. They get together every weekend and get along great. She was a 2-year old rescue, and her family just had a baby 5 weeks ago. She is an angel with the baby, and she did NOT come from good beginnings. Here are a few pictures of the two of them playing. The fourth one is just her - I love the white patch on her chest.

Of course every dog has their own personality, but I have been so impressed with Tessa. She reformed nicely and is the most loyal dog I know.

Tessa was brought into their home when they already had an 18-month old lab. She fit in just fit - the first few weeks were tough to teach her the rules, but now they can't imagine life without her.

Actually, many service orgs prefer these mixes to purebreds. I don't know why, but I have heard that in some of the research I did to help a friend find an assistance dog.

I say GO GET ONE!

A cross of those 2 wouldn't bother me in the least.

I would take one of those pups in a heartbeat. Havent ever heard of them being bad dogs. In fact NelliesMom here has a black lab golden mix and she is gorgeous. Black with the long hair like a golden and Pudden (here) is a golden lab mix. I think they are great breeds.
