When we moved here, the most common mix in this county were lab mixes, of which I've had several. Labs mixed with everything.
Then, some years ago, that changed, and the predominant dogs that you can adopt are 'pits' and their mixes, still some herders and their mixes, and Chihuahuas, and their mixes.
Of the lab mixes that I've had, rarely did they have the lab coat.
Also, the 'labbier' ones were like Charlie; loved carrying something around, like his ball. :-)
