    DefaultHelp my LAB pigmented!

    Hello! I have a yellow Labrador at 7 weeks, but has no nose black.

    This is normal? It'll be all black?

    That is such a cute pup. He also has no pigment around his eyes or mouth. The would make him a Dudley. Not a bad thing, just a not so uncommon marking defect. He won't do well in the show ring. But he will probably make one of the best pets in the world. Something I have never seen before is that he does have a portion of his nose with the black pigment. Maybe it is something other than the 'Dudley' defect/feature. Maybe someone with more experieince could comment.

    I agree with above but have to say that they splash of black on his nose makes him adorable.

    I don't know about the pigmentation, but I do know he is adorable.

    Here's a link to Laura's mismark page. While none quite like yours, the mosaics and black spots are pretty close.

    Adorable pup though!

    He has no pigment, not even chocolate pigment. I would suspect vitiligo, but it doesn't look like others that I have seen. Very strange.

    I thought it was pretty odd too. Almost like an albino puppy, but with a little bit of pigment in the nose. Do you think that selectively breeding for whiter yellows could lead to this (and maybe the kind of problems you see with white dogs like deafness)?

    It looks like he also has spots on his foot pads?
