Re: [hunter] Anyone know if this a Labrador??
[In reply to]
I would not totally rule out the possibility that this dog is a black labrador, as the facial features closely resembles with a pure bred black lab.
its coat also seem rather short and densed from the photo, also another characteristic of a pure black lab.
you should also check if she carries an otter tail.
as for the body, it would be better if there is a side view of the dog. though the dog seem small boned compared to black labs we usually see, it could also be due to poor breeding. we would never know.
i disagree with virgil that the dog is the same with princess. aside of both of them being black and being females, i do not see any other resemblence of both dogs. princess's coat is seemingly shorter and different from the puppy's. the clear part that we can see she's a mixed breed is at her head, as she has a seemingly longer muzzle and a different eye expression from the puppy. in this case, the puppy's head and facial features truly looks like a black lab's (to me).
also as you might noticed, i referred your dog as a puppy as i do believe she still will grow. she looks like a 5-8months puppy to me from that pic. as virgil mentioned you can predict the age of the dog's by checking the teeth. perhaps ask the vet to give you a hand on this :)
are u keeping her? if yes then i applaud you for giving this abandoned girl a home. what happened to her sister?
attached some photo of pet black labrador for your viewing (hence they will not be as big boned as show dogs)
Wah, a professional post ! viewing photo posted by npk. and your picture, I would say its difference, Virgil was right saying it was a mixed breed. You were right saying it has the look and feature of a Lab. I said the dog is not a pure bred Lab.leg is very thin and not the shape of a Lab though, nose, ear and hair looks alike a Lab , wonder about the otter tail, if exist, npk should be happy that it is a mixed Lab with other breed. At the least, Lab's blood in it, so not a chap pa lang....
npk dont have to feel sad whether pure or mixed, its a dog but dunt take it so serious about pure or mixed. I like hunter description about the breed, wah, really a dog trainer (professional) must learn from you.
Puppy ? I thought puppy meant for those newly born dog ? Wah, big big size already still a puppy ? How come ?
Samuel also gila .posted picture like that what for, can not see clearly, better keep it. you also keh po, if you want to post picture, do it like Hunter better and more professional. go learn from hunter. I will also learn from him, we learn togather OK ?
Black dog, good, very unique and hard to find all black colour dog. some people dislike black but many prefer all black because the black dog can scare away Hantu .All White dog will invite Hantu.
If what hunter said it is a close to pure breed Black Lab why they abandoned the dog ? what a waste !
