About the Labbe
The Labbe is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Beagle and the Labrador Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Labbe is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.
