I was looking at a husky/lab mix at the pet store today and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this type of dog. Behavior, adult look etc.

Were you thinking about buying a puppy from a pet store? I think your best bet would be starting your research on why not to buy from a pet shop. There are 3,755 Husky mixes and 30,628 Labrador mixes looking for homes listed on petfinder :( . Would you consider adopting a puppy or dog that's at risk of euthanasia rather than supporting the sale of puppies for profit by a store? In addition, a reputable rescue and/or shelter would be your best bet to guide you in the individual needs and personality of a particular dog and breeds. http://www.petfinder.com/pet-adoption

Both Huskies and Labradors are extremely high energy dogs who need hours of exercise per day. Labradors are classified as sporting dogs while Huskies as working dogs. Several short walks or a romp in the back yard aren't going to cut it for these guys. They also need appropriate training.
