Default Wirehair / Lab

I'm in the market for a new pup. I'm wanting a Wirehair Pointer cross with Lab. Anyone know of any out there, or if someone will have a litter?


Shoot me a PM if you know. Thanks!

Wirehair is the perfect dog. Why the cross?

I had one 25 years ago, and it was the best dog I've had! I love the Wirehair for the stamina and go, and the look. The mix with the lab, seemed to "mellow" it down and it wasn't the BIG runner. The dog I had could hunt anything from devil birds to geese.


I'm getting slower in my years, and need a dog that I can keep up with that is strong, and has drive. This will more than likely be my last dog so I also want it to be a companion I can take anywhere.

Agreed they can be knotheaded. First couple years with mine was frustrating until I gave into the shock collar. A little tick would let him know his bounds. Also by age 3 the puppy mellowed. I also found if I ran him hard early season by mid October he was good through end of season in January.

All breeds can be boneheads! especially from the time you bring them home to about 2-3 years old. When I was about 6 years old, we had a pair of Shorthair Pointers. They were huge, dark brown with the ticking. Mosegart (spelling??) line from what I remember. Those dogs would jump out of the boat at Strawberry res when the boat was 30yds. from the dock.
