    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.

    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...

    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..:p

    ps. the explanation of the difference was more for anyone reading that is actually interested rather than a reply :p ;)

    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.

    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.
