Is the Labrador Retriever / Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Rhodesian Labrador

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Rhodesian Labrador is a cross between a pure Rhodesian Ridgeback and a pure Labrador Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the precise traits of a mixed-breed are never guaranteed, the pairing of these two large, energetic breeds is almost certainly going to create a dog that wants to get out and exercise. Couch potatoes need not apply for ownership of this animal.

Appearance / health:
While the appearance of the Labrador Retriever / Rhodesian Ridgeback can vary quite a lot, expect a large, active animal that thrives on exercising with you.

Behavior / temperament:
The personality of a mixed breed can never be guaranteed. In the ideal world, the lovable Labrador and the determined Ridgeback would donate the genes for a truly superior pet. In the real world, you will want to be sure you have time and the experience required to train and socialize this large, active dog. If you're too busy, you could have an escape artist or a destructive chewer on your hands.
