A couple decades ago, I brought home a black dog, half golden retriever, half black Lab. I named him Lupo.

Lupo was AMAZING. This was the smartest dog I ever had. My sweet departed Fenris, bless his heart, was going to be just as smart, but he died at age 11. Lupo lived 'til almost 15.

I brought my future wife over to my house one night, and when she was getting ready to go, I turned to Lupo and told him, "Go get HER shoes." and emphasized the word her. He'd been getting MY shoes for years, and that one word change was all it took for him to immediately grasp what I wanted. I was frankly, shocked, when he did exactly that. He went and got her shoes.

I am getting another half-lab-half-golden. He'll be coming home September 10th.

Lots of lab mixes in shelters - definitely, if a mixed breed is your preference... please adopt.

I did look at the local shelter first, but the current lot is nearly all pit bull mixes. Our future dog is a deliberately bred gold-lab mix. He's black, although most of his siblings are gold/yellow.

I even have a name for him.

They could do a DNA test on their dog to see what breeds are in it. I have seen Gollies that are black. Golden Border Retrievers can also be black or partially black. Golden Labradors are another cross that can be black. So, it's kind of impossible to pinpoint what breed the dog could be mixed with based on the color. Golden Cocker Retrievers can be black. It's no telling what the dog is crossed with. Spangold Retrievers are usually black. Australian Retrievers are often black tricolor. Goldmaraners are usually black (they are a newer cross between a Golden Retriever and Weimaraner). Bernese Golden Mountain Dogs are usually tricolor.
