    Defaultnose colour

    From my last litter my black lab mated with a yellow boy. We got 4 yellow boys,2 yellow girls,2 black girls and 1 chocolate boy. From the yellows all the noses were black except for 1 yellow boy. I kept a yellow girl who s nose was black. Now is is around the rim black and underneath black and lips black and around eyes black but the middle of the nose is not black. It is light brown. I know what is call snow or winter nose how it changes with the season but her nose darkened but not black in the summer and has now lightened again. The only time the nose was black was when she was born

    For a breeder, you should know more about colors and how snow nose works. With doing a breeding that produced a NBP puppy, you won't get good pigment in general.

    Actually producing a dudley (NBP, chocolate pigmented yellow) has NO affect on quality of black pigment on other puppies.... it simply means the two dogs carried both yellow and chocolate.

    OP... yes this is snow nose and it probably wont ever go back to jet black. I absolutely agree that you should have done more research on the the breed BEFORE throwing two dogs together. Please rethink that in the future.
