We are new to Dogster and wondering if there is a way to tell if a dog is purebred or mixed? Leila is black lab, but unknown father. All I can see is a very large lab. I see alot of the Show (English) Lab, I'm told maybe a husky mix? Any ideas? Is there a way to tell for sure? Thank you!

    If you want to pay a lot of money then there is a gene test for you. I really don't care what my dogs are (it wasn't my idea to have pure breds) and I like just guessing. I can't tell because there are only two pictures, if you upload more pictures I'd be happy to help.

    Thanks. I will post more pictures as soon as I can get her to stay still long enough! Lol! I'm just curious. I don't plan to breed her or show her so I couldn't care less what she is. She is a wonderful dog either way. I just think it's neat to try and figure it all out :)

    Black Lab, Yes.......Husky, No. I don't see any husky at all.

    No not Husky, she looks like a pure black lab. If she is a mix (though prob. not) I would guess BC from the size.

    max is dog rescue and since we adopted him we were told he is a lab mix. but some people in the park say he is pure breed. not that it really matters but just curious if someone can tell if he is pure breed or if mix, what breed is he mix with. :q

    I don't see any husky in her. She looks full lab to me.

    She sure looks like a pure bred black lab to me. I do not see any husky at all. By the way she sure is beautiful!

    She may be mixed but I think she pure Labrador.
