Labloodhound Build Information

The Labloodhound is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Bloodhound, so many of its characteristics are derived from either or both of these two breeds. Physically, this dog generally will have a deep chest, with powerful shoulders, along with obvious loose skin in the areas around the upper back and the neck. Colors most often run to black, brown, or a combination of white and brown. Ears are often longer than their Labrador parent, but not always as long as those of the Bloodhound.
