Puppy #5 Boy White Labrador

PLEASE NOTE: Labrador Retrievers, according to the breed standard written by the National club (LRC, Inc. - Labs have only three accepted coat colors. Those colors are black, yellow and chocolate which can have many different shades but these shades do NOT include silver as there is no "silver" or "blue" gene in pure-bred Labrador Retrievers. There is no such thing as a "polar white" puppy or a "silver" Lab! A "polar white" Lab would fall under the definition of the color yellow. A reputable breeder who has an occasional Lab with more white than acceptable, brindling or a silver-appearing chocolate will NOT try to sell you the puppy as show or breeding quality and will ask you to spay/neuter the puppy. Beware of those trying to get more money for a "rare color" of dog, they are not ethical breeders. For more information on genetic possibilities for coat color please see this wonderful web site on Coat Color in Labrador Retrievers. There is a second site that is also very informative about in correct Coat Color if you wish to learn more.

A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog.
