    DefaultHad to laugh at this listing for Lab puppies

    Last weekend we traveled to a small central Texas town for a wedding. I was reading the local paper and in the classified section was this ad:
    "Labrador Puppies, AKC, Championship bloodlines, yellow and black/brindle"
    OK we now have Brindle Labs from Championship bloodlines.

    Omg!!! I wonder where you were at in Texas, because I saw an ad for brindle labs locally near where I live too, and slapped myself in the forehead and laughed as well, thinking "Good grief, I am embarrassed to live here sometimes!!"

    I hear the brindles are the best at turkey-herding. They're bread for it....

    It happens. Kirsten produced one that I use on my website. Brindle is in the Lab genes and will pop up every once in awhile.

    I too have learned something new about Labs. Genetics can be complicated but for those of you with a knowledge of genetics here is an explanation for the brindle color:
    LABRADORNET - THE GENETICS OF BRINDLE AND TAN POINT LABRADOR RETRIEVERS
    And here is some photos of one:
    Brindle Labrador Retriever – Dixie

    And my apologies for laughing at the ad. OK, but can we still laugh at Silver Labs?

    I do believe you guys on the brindle in labs etc, although I do not claim to understand genetics, hahaha. But it has been my experience since living in Texas that usually when people advertise brindle labs they are just pit or boxer crosses. Did start a rather interesting thread tho, whether they are purebred or mixed!! Very informative. I am loving the stuff I am learning on this forum~!!
