    DefaultStrange white fur on Bart

    Posting a couple of photos of Bart. The small patch of white fur is on his inside back leg. Our vet says Bart is not 100% pure lab. White spot and the fur is not course enough. Not a big deal for us nevertheless he is a rescue from an unwanted owner. Wondering if anyone elses labs have a small spot of different color fur?

    A little patch of white doesn't mean he's not a Lab ! It's just a mis mark !

    Jasper has a black spot on his rump the size of a fingernail and he's purebred.

    Kolby is a purebred chocolate Lab and he has a white arrow on his chest.

    Of course none of us knows if your dog is a purebred. It obviously has a lot of lab if it isn't, but white on a black lab is not in itself anything that would point to being a mix:

    Ok thanks for the info. I was just wondering. Like I mentioned he is a rescue from a jack*** and he is my first lab so I am still learning the ins and outs.

    Dio is 100% lab and he has a white thin stripe down his chest and his 2 back feet have white patches. He was the only one in the litter that had them, but he was chosen for us and we love him anyway! He's just always dressed up in his tuxedo, that's all.

    A vet once told me that Angus was part Chow because he has black on his tongue.

    When I joined JL years ago, I learned that this is fairly common in Labs (and other breeds as well). It's just a concentration of pigment - like a freckle.

    White hair can also be caused by trauma to the area. Simon has little white hairs here and there around his neck from bitey-neck that got a little too, er, spirited.

    My Sally has a white patch on her chest as in this pic:



    She also has one white toe on each of her back feet. You can see those white toes in this pic:
