A Labraheeler is a cross between a black lab or any Labrador retriever and an Australian cattle dog, also known as a "blue heeler." It is classified as a hybrid due to its origination from two different canine breeds.
The Labraheeler is recognized as a sporting and herding breed that reacts well to whistles and verbal commands. Labraheelers are generally affectionate and gentle, while also being very intelligent. These hybrids have short, dense coats of fur that can be any combination of white, gray, brown or black. The canine's body weight ranges from 35 to 79 pounds, with an average life-expectancy range of 12 to 16 years. Labraheelers require lots of physical activity in order to remain mentally and physically healthy.
