Is this dog right for you?

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.

To preserve the unique qualities of the Mountain Cur, this mix probably shouldn't be performed intentionally. But accidents do happen, and you may find the Labrador Retriever / Mountain Cur Mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Lab  or the Mountain Cur traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
It may be appealing to imagine that the Labrador Retriever / Mountain Cur Mix could not only track and tree the squirrel but climb up and retrieve it too. However, genetics doesn't always work this way, and there is no guarantee that the mix will be a particularly good hunting dog at all. Get to know the animal in question as an individual. Some will only be suitable to be family companions.
