The Shar Pei Lab Mix, an Independent yet Loving Family Dog

Last Updated on 
The reserved Shar Pei and the outgoing Labrador Retriever (Lab) have different personalities, but these two popular dogs come together in the one-of-a-kind Shar Pei Lab mix.
Also called a Lab Pei, the Shar Pei and Lab mix is loyal, loving, and protective of its family. Let me tell you what you need to know about this excellent family dog

What is a Shar Pei Lab mix?

A Shar Pei and Lab mix is the first-generation crossbreed of the Chinese Shar Pei and the Lab. This hybrid usually displays a good combination of the Shar Pei’s and Lab’s qualities when it comes to appearance and temperament.
Most Labrador Sharpei dogs have almond-shaped eyes and black or dark brown noses. Many of them inherit the loose facial skin of the Shar Pei, but the skin won’t be as wrinkled as the purebred’s. Their small, folded ears are reminiscent of those on the Labrador.
The coats on Lab Shar Pei crosses tend to be short and straight, with a coarse texture like the Shar Pei’s. (Did you know that the Shar Pei’s name is derived from sā pèih, which means ‘sand skin’ in Cantonese?)

These dogs come in a wide variety of coat colors ranging from cream to black. If you’re looking for a chocolate Lab Shar Pei mix or a yellow Lab Shar Pei mix, you have a good chance of finding a dog with the coat color you want..
