regardless of their mix, there are just as many Golden Retrievers with just as much prey drive as a dog who is 1/4 Pit, maybe less. A 9 year old Golden Attacked my dog and left scars on his ear, it may have been that my dog was a rambuncious player, but a week or 2 later the Golden then turned on the submissive JRT that was also in our Training class, they had initially been friends.
I know that I/We have to be extra cautious with our Pits because of public perception, but its not as if the other "non-bully" breeds are exempt from aggression. If they were, then my Pit Bull might not be dog-reactive today, in fact, of the dogs who have picked on Oscar, not one of them has been a Pit.
I'd be more concerned about the puppies looking more pit bull as they get older, and if they are in a BSL place they could be confiscated. I see the pit bull in Mom's ears and jaw musculature, on her "head on" pics.
As an ACO in a BSL area the things I look for are body style, jaw musculature and ear set, mainly. It doesn't matter if their papers say they are "lab mix" or whatever, if they display characteristics and an ACO can show that, it doesn't matter what their papers say.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
