Aussie and Yellow Lab Hybrid?

Hello, Our neighbor has a litter of puppies who come from a pure breed Aussie and a pure breed Yellow Lab. Does anyone have experience on how these dogs develop: size, temperament, color etc? We are looking at a few of them both boys and girls and are curious to know more about how they may turn out. Thanks in advance for your replies.

I've had two Lab Aussie mixes. I think it's a nice cross (not that people need to be breeding mixed breeds or purebreds for that matter... there are enough homeless dogs already) But as a mix I got two nice dogs. One was much more hyper like his dad than the other. A lot really depends on the PARENTS, personalities. They DO shed a lot worse than Aussies. Mine were both short haired Merles. Good luck.

I have had both breeds but not a mix. They were wonderful and ultra smart.. They are both uber active. but you know that going in. Both breeds love to play, play , play.. We have had 2 sets of 2 aussies now.. They are great friends and they love each other and us too. They need a nice yard to run in and good brushings. I don't think you can pick better breeds!!! We laugh and say they are each others chew toy but seldom hurt each other and then accidently. If 1 yips the other stops and they bump noses. Amazing

I have a half lab half Aussie and she has a wonderful temperament. Very loyal and very affectionate.
She looks much more like the lab and is a red Merle with a short hair coat but has many traits of both breeds. I think each dog is an individual with personality so go off of the way the dog interacts with you and make sure you research both breeds; they may end up with all the traits of both or sometimes just one!
