Is the Chow Chow / Labrador Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chabrador

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.

What do you get when you breed a Labrador Retriever, widely regarded as one of the most personable dogs, with the Chow Chow, one of the most temperamental? Your guess is as good as anyone's. The reality is that your crossbred puppy could be more like the Lab, more like the Chow, or something of an unpredictable blend. The Chabrador is beautiful, but it may be best in the hands of someone who has previous experience with Chow Chows or a similar temperament. Some owners describe Labrador / Chow mixes that are almost Labrador-like in their sweetness, but you never really know until you get to know the dog in question. They are truly individuals, and you cannot make assumptions.

Appearance / health:
There's some variation in the appearance of this crossbred dog since it isn't a pure breed, but they frequently have beautiful coats.

Behavior / temperament:
If the Lab personality dominates, owners are known to gush about the sweetness and loyalty of their dogs. However, some of the more Chowlike individuals can also be sweeter than a purebred Chow, but it's your responsibility to make sure your dog is properly socialized.
