I have a black lab/pit mix. I picked her up from the pound when she was 8 weeks old. Not knowing what I had gotten I quickly realized that she was not full lab. She is about 7 years old now and a amazing dog! I can tell you that this mix of breeds needs a lot of exercise and many toys that have rewards. They are extremely smart and I have found that they Love training and being challenged! Now that Angel is older and have been thought almost every situation you can image she is very obedient. But it has taken lots of work and many chewed things. Just remember your dealing with lab which loves to run and chase things and a pit who is very smart and loves a good challenge. Welcome to owning one of the best mixed breeds in the world! Good luck!
