There are several names used for a dog that is a mix between a Labrador Retriever and a Pit Bull Terrier including "Labrabull," "Pitador" and the most commonly used "Labrador/Pit Bull mix." Unlike the Puggle and Cockapoo, this mix typically is not given a designer dog breed name.
The Labrador/Pit Bull mix is one of the most common mixes seen today, as both breeds are popular. These large, strong dogs require training from an early age to eliminate unwanted behaviors, such as dog aggression, destruction and fear aggression. Getting a Labrador/Pit Bull started early in training classes promotes socialization with other dogs and people. Because the dogs are a mix of two breeds, the Labrador/Pit Bull mix varies significantly in appearance. They weigh between 45 and 100 pounds and come in an assortment of colors including black, brown, yellow and brindle.Learn More
