PUREBRED???

When we got our new puppy Paige about 5 weeks ago she was said to have a purebred Lab as the father AND the mother was said to also be a purebred Lab.

DO YOU FIND ANYTHING INTERESTING ABOUT THESE PHOTO'S OF HER?
(Note: All three photo's are blurry because a lab puppy lacks the ability to stay still for photo shoots.  These were the best shots out of about a dozen I took.)




As noted above, the question of whether or not Paige is a purebred...well you be the judge.  Below are some images of Lab puppies that are close to the same age as Paige.  Did you notice the ears on the puppies below compared to Paige's above.



It's a good thing we didn't get our puppy with the idea in mind of having her bred.  We have certainly  bonded with her and there is NO WAY we would give her back.  We like her just as she is, which might be that she has 'non-labrador' genes in her.  Do ya think???

I think someone was pulling your leg a bit...but that is one cute dog! Better than a pure lab anyway! ;D

She is adorable but definitely does not have lab ears - but she is a sweetie. Did you get her from a breeder? and did she have papers? I think she is adorable the way she is but shame on a person for lying to you!

Jo,
We only paid $10 for her so we really can't complain. If I had wanted her for breeding purposes I would be really ticked off. It was a situation where some people were given a "spayed female Lab" which turned out to be not only unspayed but not full Lab either. The only reason they asked $10 each was so that they could take the money and have her spayed.

Regardless, she is adorable. I love her perky ears!

Nope, not a pure bred. But pretty cute!

Look how cute...even if she isn't a pure bred.

Her head looks a little Pit Bullish. Now the thing with dogs is some of those puppies very well could be purebred but the little lady may have had a thing with a tramp as well....

Regardless you have an adorable puppy!

Lab....not entirely....Cute? YES!!! I love puppies!!

Aw, she's awfully cute. We're still on the fence and have decided to wait awhile, but if the opportunity came by we'd probably say yes to a lab puppy. I look forward to more of your puppy stories.
