i think you are right
Thats cool Claire I personally like the chocolates and blacks! Ive seen alot of mixs around but never a purebreed lab. My brother went to a hunting house were a breeder breed them for working, he got to meet a litter of pup!
I cant wait to get my puppy/dog in the future. If I get a lab I wanted to train it for working but not actually take it on shots!
I have to say I like American Akita :blush: It looks just like the one I saw!
Not True, I know 4 different golden retrievers and only 2 look similar. I'll gather up some photo's for another day
Unfortunately, not a good example. Working goldens are quite different to show/pet goldens.
Aw.. bordy - are you bored tonight
Cannot comment on what they would be like but what I will comment on is the advert. I personally would not touch those pups. No health tests mentioned etc...
Theres are slow three different types of goldens
American, English, Canadain i think.
I personally know a lab/akita cross. He is a lovely boy but a bit loopy.
He looks like the one on this page someone posted Designer & Mixed Breed Dog Community - Picture Gallery
He is akita built with a bit of a lab head but an akita nose with lab ears, akita tail. He is also quite stubborn and takes a firm voice to make him come back from the woods.
Yes it is going to be a bit of a lottery, same with all cross breeds though.
Why not a good example? or why are they different?
If the latter, goldens from working lines are much lighter boned, taller and much darker in colour - the show goldens are heavier boned and and usually a paler cream colour. Quite a distinct difference between the two due to the fact that the lines are quite different.
If the former... I'll leave it to you to work it out..
ps. the explanation of the difference was more for anyone reading that is actually interested rather than a reply
my friends is heavily boned and a great working dog
I'm referring to working lines.... not whether or not they can or do work
it is from working line
working lines doh
Woahh thats sooo amazingly cute !
My concern is that Akita and Labs are very diff dogs, with different characters, its not a good cross on paper at least.
well i never knew they were different dogshmy:
which working lines..... doh
Still there's always one that breaks the mould.... just like our bordy
This has made me laugh! :lol: :lol:
Obviously there are two different dogs, but the character, the history and physical traits of the two dogs are they different, hence why on paper they dont make a good cross. Comapred to say a Labrador Retriver - Golden Retriver cross, for example which is a good example of a cross breed which would work well.
