Breed Details

General

The Labbe is a playful, cheerful animal that attaches and becomes loyal to his owners. The Beagle ears on an otherwise Labrador head and body is distinctive of the breed. Naturally confident and curious, the Labbe socializes well with other animals, given the proper exposure.

Color

The Labbe can take after the colors of either parent breed. The Labrador usually shows in solid colors of yellow, white, brown or black, sometimes with white tufts, while Beagles are often tri-colored or with 2 colors, the darker one being the saddle.

Coat

The coat will be short, smooth, and dense. This affords the Labbe (and its parent breeds) cover against harsher elements. If the Labrador coat is inherited, the Labbe will have an overcoat and a shorter, softer undercoat.

Personality

The Labbe, like its Labrador and Beagle parents, also has a tendency to gobble up everything in sight, and is thus predisposed more than other breeds to obesity.

Care

A short coat will need brushing once a week, and bathing every month or so. Ears should be checked for ticks and dried out, to prevent infections.

Training

The Labbe will need an experienced owner or trainer. Food reward will work well, but training at the beginning should be constant, to ensure the desired behavior sinks in.

Activity

Vigorous activity is not needed to release excess energy, the Labbe has stamina, but it is not a hyper-active breed. Daily exercise is recommended, though, to help offset its huge appetite. A leashed walk or jog is best, as the Labbe enjoys exploring new and unfamiliar scents.
