Silver Labrador Retrievers

Very rare! Beautiful Silver, Charcoal and Champagne Labrador puppies for sale! KC registered, incl. health test. Parents are international champions.

Some things you ought to (re)consider before you acquire a “silver”, “charcoal” or “champagne” Labrador Retriever:

  • Labrador Retrievers only come in the coat colors black, yellow and chocolate.
  • The Labrador Retriever breed does not carry the dilution (dd) gene which causes the dilute coloration of so-called “silver”, “charcoal” and “champagne” Labradors.
  • Any dog carrying the dilution gene is NOT a purebred Labrador Retriever.
  • Any pedigree certificate from a Kennel Club which states that a dog carrying the dilution (dd) gene is a purebred Labrador Retriever, is a worthless piece of paper.
  • The dilution gene in the Labrador Retriever is a very controversial matter. Stricter rules and regulations are on the way, and it’s only a matter of time before your expensive and special “silver”, “charcoal” or “champagne” designer dog will officially be a mutt.
  • You and your diluted dog are not welcome in the Labrador world. You will not be able to enter official dog shows. Your diluted dog will immediately be disqualified.
  • The dilution gene came from other dogs than the Labrador Retriever, like the Weimaraner. With the introduction of these alien genes into the Labrador Retriever breed, it’s very likely that other traits, characteristics and diseases were introduced in these dogs, which are equally alien to the Labrador Retriever breed.

Did you acquire a “Labrador Retriever” carrying the dilution gene with an official pedigree certificate from the American Kennel Club (AKC), or any FCI-recognized Kennel Club, and are you disappointed because you thought you bought a purebred Labrador? Please contact us! Your statement might be important in future court cases.

Are you not sure if the puppy or adult Labrador you plan to buy is a carrier of the dilution (dd) gene? Let the owner or breeder produce a certificate from a recognized genetic veterinary laboratory, which states that the dog is free from the dilution (dd) locus. Are you still not convinced, then don’t hesitate to contact us.

“Dear Mr Vanderwyk,
Gosh, how I love your articles… all of them!! I love how you just, “tell it like it is!”
I am here today because of the NO TO SILVER Labs” Action Centre. I have been following it (and you) for some time and now I’m here to ask your permission to help boost it along in CANADA!

There is no such thing as a Silver Lab.

Terms such as "golden", "silver", "blue", "white" or "grey" as variants are not recognised. The term "Golden Labrador" has been used both as an incorrect term for yellow labradors of a golden shade,[26] and also for any Labrador-Golden Retriever crossbreed of any colour, including black.[27] White is a light shade of yellow (officially referred to as 'light cream' or 'pale yellow' in the standard),[10][28][29] and silver is either not recognised or registered as chocolate (though regarded as a major fault and not up to confirmation).[20][10] Claims that some "rare" variants exist or have been verified by DNA testing, or the like, are widely considered to be a 'scam'.[10][30]
