Rescuing a Purebred Dog

A prospective owner tries to find a purebred Labrador Retriever to adopt.


Q. I am looking for a chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy. I’m considering adopting a dog who needs a home instead of buying one from a breeder. However, I do want a purebred Lab. By looking at this picture, do you think this puppy is purebred Lab or a mix?

A. Of course, I can’t see this puppy’s proportions, outline or tail, but with its long head and muzzle, ears and long, lean legs, it looks more like a solid liver-colored German Shorthaired Pointer to me than it does a chocolate Labrador.

I can't see the whole body of the dog from this picture but looking at his long muzzle, face and ears I would say he's a pointer but I can see a hint of lab in him too, I just can't explain it, I love labs and you can usually tell a lab when you see one and this cutie is either pure pointer or he has lab in him, but that's just my opinion, he's a nice looking pup and would be a good addition to your family either way.

There is no way to know for sure unless you have papers in hand. There good hearted people who want there animals to have a good home and sometimes A bit of the devil shows up ...
