    Default Is "brindle" a possible lab color?

    Funny question I know. I was under the impression labs are black, chocolate, and yellow. Not brindle. So here I am asking the experts. Help.

    Purebred labradors can be born Brindled. It is a mismark. I have seen several brindled puppies pop up in my dogs lines. They make wonderful pets and usually are the first to be picked from puppy people since they are unique. That said they are not worth any more or less than any other puppy in the litter of acceptable color.

    Ps. You have to scholl down a bit to see the pics.

    Maggie's sister is a mismark....slight white ring on her chocolate tail and you can see a bit of flecking through her coat (not very noticeable but its there). Mom did throw all chocolates and one white in the litter and does carry the blond gene.

    My sister owns the mismark pup which is nice because we get to compare the two...I cannot believe the size difference. Her girl is built like a tank...almost pitbull like lol!!! And our Mags is so petite next to her...very muscular but lean.

    I once saw a purebred Lab with Rottie black/tan markings. The dog even had the trademark Rottie "eyebrows". I didn't believe the lady until she showed me the dogs papers!

    Me, too, only the one I saw was a chocolate. I thought for sure the dog was a Lab/Rott mix (he was rather large for a Lab, too). His owner told me she bought him in NC, and he was a purebred Lab.

    I thought that the brindling mismark wasn't complete, and was usually just on the limbs? Or do I have that wrong?

    This is so interesting, I would've thought they were mixed breeds also. Well, that is my thing I learned for today ;D I want one now
