Thread: Whats My Puppy?

  1. #1

    Default Whats My Puppy?

    i have had my puppy (Nikki, 9 months) since december last year. when i got her they had advertised her as a pure labrador but i new she wasnt because she looked too fluffy!
    her mum looked like a black lab but her coat was just a bit longer and her dad was defintaly a pure yellow lab.
    because of her fluffyness i always thought maybe she had golden retriever somewhere but she has curly fur on her ears so that didnt make sence.
    today when i was looking up different species of dog i found one called a flat-coat retriever and she looks like that exept for more stocky like a lab so maybe she has that in her?
    what do you reccon?

    There is no way of ever knowing, and you are bound to get different results depending on who you ask. I'd just be happy to accept that she is a Labrador x.

    If I were to guess, I'd say she could have Retriever in her.

    Well she is clearly just a Lab X so when people ask that is your answer....
    "She is a Lab cross"
    As Anne said you will get lots of different answers from lots of different people in the end you will never know as it is impossible to tell.

    Perhaps you could think of a story that will help you to accept that people will ask... say something like;

    "Well...... we believe her mother was a Chihuahua and her father was a Poodle. Obviously, that's wrong. I think her Dad was a Bulldog. Now I know why people say you should only buy purebred dogs from reputable breeders!"

    End with a laugh and leave it at that.

    Alternatively, you could just say the truth. You thought you were buying a purebred Lab but she obviously isn't and you do not know what other breed she has in her.

    but the dad was a lab... and he was yellow
    had both black and yellow puppys
    i dont really think shes golden retriever because they dont have curly fur on there ears but flat-coats do

    Actually every Golden Retriever I know who is around your dogs age have curly fur on their ears Including the pure bred papered ones that I have met

    Hmm, she looks like she definitely has some sort of retriever in her - from the little thumbnail of the first pic I was going to say she looks like she has cocker spaniel ears. But once it was enlarged, and alongside the other photos.. nah, no cocker!

    I've got a little poodle x something, and whenever people ask I just say poodle cross, or 'poodle-y type thing' haha She was bought 10 years ago as 7/8ths poodle, 1/8th bichon but looking at her, she looks more like a scruffy terrier/poodle blend than anything. So I've got no idea - she's my special little baby though, so I don't care
