Is the Boston Terrier / Labrador Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Boston Lab

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 Boston Lab is a cross between a pure Boston Terrier and a pure Labrador Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create a highly social family pet.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but you can expect a good-sized and highly energetic animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, you know going in with this mix that you're almost certainly getting a high energy dog that demands to be trained using lots of positive reinforcement. Don't let this active animal get bored, or you could have real problems. They do love to learn, and if you like to play games outdoors, they'll be delighted to join in.
