I have a black pittie, and got her at 7 weeks old and she looked very similar. I think she may be part black lab, and she looked nearly identical! I have two pits and ran a rescue and I am 95% sure that’s lab and pittie! ADORABLE!! AHHH!! Puppy fever!!!!!! 🙂

I see Pit Bull in her face too!

Very cute! I’d say it’s too soon to tell though. (I may be overly cautious on this but on any and all official records like the vet, etc. I would just list him as a Lab or Lab mix even if you decide he might have pit in him. Breed Specific Legislation is a nasty thing.)
Besides, you can pretty much call him whatever you want. Case in point, this adorable “Bernese Mountain Dog/Heeler mix” I met over the weekend. Smile, nod and say, “Oh! I never would have guessed that combination!” 🙂

I’d say lab or pit/lab mix. Our is a pit mix and I just tell everyone she’s an “all American” dog, or a brown dog. What kind of dog is she? Sweet and nice.

I would say pit, maybe boxer, but looks more pit to me. You might be able to tell more when he gets older. Your vet could probably have a pretty acurate guess too.

What a cutie! I agree his face looks like there could be some pit bull in there somewhere, but who really knows? We have our own lab mix (Barney) who was an adult when we adopted him, and we have zero info on his origins. The shelter thought he was a lab/golden retriever cross, but the droopy face has caused a lot of people to say there must be some bloodhound or St. Bernard in the mix. My future mother in law dotes on our dog, and gave us money to have his DNA checked–our vet says it will cost $60. She’s so funny, her rationale for the test is that he might have traces of a larger breed, and we could therefore feed our 83-pound beast even more! 😉
