Other Names



The Labany is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Brittany Spaniel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Phoebe the Lab / Brittany hybrid at 3 years old—"This is Phoebe. Her mother is an AKC Black Labrador Retriever. Her father is an AKC Brittany. She has silky, wavy fur with feathering on her ears, legs, abdomen and tail. She is 3 years old in these photos, a natural pointer, and was an excellent pheasant hunter by the end of her first season. Her second season, she pointed 45+ birds the first day and began flushing on command. She is kind of a prissy, though, as she doesn't ’charge’ headlong into the brush, like my Labs do. She carefully and quickly picks her way through. She is a quiet, lazy, lovable family lapdog in the house and all business in the field. She loves everyone and is excellent with other dogs and cats. She only barks if someone comes to the door and frequently will come to you and ’verbalize’ with modified whines when she wants something."

"This is my precious Labrador Retriever / Brittany Spaniel mix. Her name is Valkyrie, but we call her Kyrie for short. On your website, her hybrid is called a "Labany," but we've always called her a Brittador. The mother is a Lab and the father is a Brittany. This pic is of Kyrie curled up sleeping. You can see her cute pink nose! Our Kyrie has the golden color of a Lab, but she is smaller and more petite. She's also got the cutest pink nose that she gets from her Brittany papa. We've had her for 3 years now and she was my mom's Christmas present to our dad when Mom was supposedly at choir practice. We'd moved a couple years ago and had finally gotten into our own house and missed having dogs terribly. So Kyrie was the Christmas surprise for everyone!"
