    DefaultNew Mom To My First Lab

    I bought myself my pup Dexter (picture down below) for my birthday. I've been reading online not that it matters but that yellow labs usually have dark eyes and a black nose. Dexter has green eyes and a brownish nose, I was wondering if my pup is a pure breed lab or is it possible he could be a mix ?

    He's not a mix. He's what they casually call a "Dudley". Or a No Black Pigment Labrador.

    Labs come in Black with black pigment and Chocolate with chocolate pigment. Then there is a gene that turns off the coat color making it yellow. So you have a yellow with chocolate pigment.

    Just like with people, labs and dogs in general inherit traits from their parents. If you cross a dog with black skin with another dog, some of the puppies will have the dark skin under their coat. But some labs have lighter skin. There are all kinds of combinations possible and your beautiful pup is no exception. He is definitely a lab. My boy looks the same!
