Welcome to Popway Labradors
Before you get too impressed with any dogs titles, ask questions, as some breeders use registries other than, or in addition to AKC, that do not have the same stringent requirements. All placements, points, and titles listed on this website were obtained at American Kennel Club (AKC) events.
"The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable."
The above quote is from the AKC Labrador Retriever Standard. There are only three recognized colors in Labradors. A white spot on the chest is permissible. NO other colors are recognized. However, other colors can, and do, occur. Brindling, black and tan, dilution of the chocolate gene which gives a chocolate a gray (or silver) appearance. These colors are a disqualifying fault, and are incorrect for the breed.
Do not be fooled into buying a puppy in any breed that the breeder claims has a "rare" color for that breed. A reputable breeder will tell you if a puppy has a mismark or incorrect coloration and will require you to spay or neuter that dog to prevent the reoccurance of the disqualifying fault.
"A dog is like an eternal Peter Pan, a child who never grows old
and who therefore is always available to love and be loved."
