    Some says he's a pure lab. Some says he's a mix lab and pitbull. Some says he's a box and lab.

    Are we really trying to judge his breed by a tiny non-head shot in an avatar? lol Could you post more photos? I see no pit bull.

    It's possible it's some kind of pit bull/lab/shepherd mix... Hmm... My opinion changes per photo.

    He looks like a pit bull mix. He is super cute. :) FYI - APBTs are a medium breed, they are not supposed to be huge or have big heads. :)

    Thanks for the info guys. He's temperament is surely from a pitbull because of his aggresiveness. He also like to jump on people and he "humps". He also likes chasing small animals like cats, rats, cockroaches and kill 'em..

    Humping and jumping on people is not aggression, it's a training issue not aggression. So you need to work on stopping that. :) Him chasing small animals is normal. Most dogs do it.

    Yeah, jumping on people and humping are training issues, nothing to do with being part pitbull. And if you are talking about aggressiveness in terms of other dogs/animals that would make sense, but pitties are not supposed to be aggressive to humans at all...

    Thanks for the compliment @stafinois

    im sorry guys. i thought jumping and humping are bad behaviors in dogs. its my first time to own this kind of dog. he's very energetic and playful. i just hope that his biting will be gone a.s.a.p. he bites too hard sometimes.

    Coming from a pure-bredd lab owner...he is definitely not pure lab.
    He does look like a pit/lab mix possibly.
    He is adorable though!

    To avoid Pit "hysteria", you might want to make something up, like I did to avoid the former dog warden's involvement and just to prevent people from judging him as "bad" because he was half Pit. We told people he was a Golden Ret/Bassett Hound mix. Some people suspected but never said anything, some did say something, but most just accepted it and never thought about it again. When he was near the end, we told everyone who had met him over the years what he was, and it shook up quite a few of them when they realized they, or their kids, had hugged and/or kissed a "Pit!"
