    DefaultLab puppy noses

    Just curious if anyone knows when a yellow lab puppy's nose darkens. Looking at a pup and she is 3 wks old with a brown nose and want to know if it will darken. thanks!

    I'm not exactly sure. Looking at the pictures his breeder sent, Caleb's litter had black noses at 3 weeks, although one's wasn't quite as dark (that's the one we're pretty sure was Caleb). This was him at 6 weeks.

    NO. This puppy is what is considered a Dudley. This puppy has liver coloring. Here's a helpful article. Both of the parents likely carry chocolate.

    Your pup will always have a brown nose. Dozer has a chocolate nose.

    That pup will probably always have a liver colored nose, even her paw pads are pinkish. Rush has a pinkish nose and eye rims and lips. She is my sweet dudley girl. Even her paw pads are pinkish when they are clean.lol

    Yes that puppy is a Dudley. It is a yellow that has chocolate bloodlines. He´s eyes look green now and will turn a very light brown / hazel when he grows, his nose will be liver/ flesh colored, a little lighter than a chocolate lab´s nose.

    Yes, likely. She is quite a bit lighter than Dozer. He has a very dark chocolate nose, lips and around his eyes. His mom is chocolate and his dad is yellow.
