Sweet Mother Mary how much does that beast weigh/eat? Adorbs though you gotta love St. Bernards.
Although that pic is just one I found online, the heaviest one I ever had weighed about 100 kg...the floor would creak when he walked across it.
That’s not a dog that’s a horse
Lucky? Pretty much this,
he's a little scrabbleweasel always running around so I haven't gotten a pic of him yet.
Meh not so much impressed
I think I might get this breed when I finally get a dog, I want a pet :/
Did I already tell you about petfinder.com? You should use that instead of going for a specific breed
Dude labs and lab mixes are so worth it! They’re smart and loyal. They love to play and are the perfect dogs. Especially if your lifestyles active man they will love you forever.
Get the lab, no regrets. What do you know about doggos?
I know that they sit in shelters waiting to be adopted and sometimes end up getting murdered because no one wants them
Nothing wrong with having breed preference, but don’t overlook the mutts that need your help. Most mutts (where I’m from anyways) are mixed with lab anyways.
No, I don't think so. But I want a specific breed! I want that dog from Lost I think it's a lab
The thing is I can't go for a dog yet since I'm in shared accommodation, got to wait till I've finished uni and got my own place which is like 5 years from now Life isn't fair
When buying a dog, do people still go to a shelter and choose which dog they like? Or is that just in movies? I'd probably end up buying the oldest and ugliest dog in that case, I'd feel guilty if I didn't
That’s what I did with Cola lmao.
Also my sisters dog is adopted. Someone found her wandering around half dead when she was a few months old. We got a DNA test and she’s mostly lab.
The sad thing about genetics is if you want a good one chances are they need to be purebred, unless you’re one of the lucky ones and happen to find a really good mutt that haven’t been muddled down to much. Also it’s not fair to feel obligated to get an animal that someone else didn’t want to be responsible for. Nothing like raising your own animal from the beginning stages of life. Just my opinion.
Actually, a lot of purebreads have health problems and are inbred. Mutts have a wider variety of genes which = less chance of genetic problems. That’s why royal families have royal diseases, like hemophilia.
Technically yes but the chances these days of getting an inbred purebred in this sense would be Pretty rare unless your buying the dog from a trailer court. But I also do not want to discredit the mixed dogs because they are just as amazing.
Hip dysplasia is one of those things that purebred labs and retrievers often have, and I had a purebred with it. He was on a lot of medication and had to be put down from the pain when he was older. I wouldn’t ever say that purebreds are bred to be healthy animals, they’re bred to look and act a certain way.
