    Later.
    The labrador is one of the most widespread breeds and if you stick them on a chain in the backyard they easily can become vicious.

They go out and play in the yard and the kids don't even realize that the dogs are herding them from one side to the other and back again. Pretty amazing watching the natural instinct. Easiest dogs I've ever trained too. So smart and eager to please.

    Smart and eager to please... wish this post was about my kids.

    I'm on a roll tonight.
    I have a mix too but I don't tell him. I always remind him he is as pure as they come so his feelings don't get hurt.



    He can't see very well but I don't think it has anything to do with his eyes. When I put his hair up in dreadlocks he does much better but then he isn't a labradoodle, he's a rastadoodle.
    Thanks from Madeline, boontito and Blues63

    Can't imagine the upkeep on that fellow.

    Looks like a great dog though.

    Grats.

    Yeah my basset hounds have some serious nail issues.

    They grow amazingly fast and they are so thick you need a professional to cut them.

    They were bred for badger hunting so are designed to dig in dirt.

I disagree, for every aggressive one you have more nice ones..Pits who are raised like children.
    You don't know what the hell you're talking about.

    wtf...why because the police hold on to dogs until they decide if they will be put down? I do not get how the dogs in the video got out of police custody and into shelters.

    A black tongue is the give away for chows.

    They aren't in police custody. Animal control has them.
