"My lovely dog Blues at 5 months old. His father is a Labrador and her mother is a Shiba Inu. Blues has a blue tongue, rather blue with some pink spots. She's Beautiful. My lovely dog."
The Shiba Lab is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Shiba Inu and the Labrador Retriever. 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.
