Species group: Mixed Breeds
Other name(s): American Bullador
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 American Bullador is a cross between a pure American Bulldog and a pure Labrador Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the American Bullador can vary in size. Be sure you are ready to handle a large animal, because some individuals can weigh well over 100 pounds.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the American Bullador can be especially problematical if you thought you were getting the sweet, goes-to-anyone Lab personality. You might get that, in which case the dog might be a failure as a guard or protection animal. You might also be getting a protector personality that can be aggressive if not properly socialized. Be a responsible and observant dog owner prepared to give your pet the training and socialization it requires to make the best possible companion.
