    DefaultMiniature Labs

    Wow, just came across this site from another forum. These "labs" look off. Not right at all. And check out the code of ethics page : I think that says it all

    I don't see a link, but maybe that's a good thing.

    Ugh, what's next, "Shiloh" or "King" Labradors? Well, actually, I guess we already have those...* :

    I think it´s a mixbreed after all... lab is always a lab, big or small....but 16 to 19 inches?

    : Atleast they dont have any "silvers"
    What colors are Miniature Labradors?

    Miniature Labradors come in three colors. Black, Chocolate and Yellow. There are
    no other allowed colors for Miniature Labradors.
    Miniature labs weigh on average of 40-55lbs. And are 16"-19" at the shoulder.

    I didn't go to the link, but is it that they are breeding labs from smaller lines, and have eventually come up with a pint sized line?

    I wonder what the complications of this are on the joints, organs, etc?

    Thats what Im thinking too. Im sure that the health of the lab in the long run wont be that good. And Im sure they are selling them for an arm and a leg because they are "rare" :

    I've seen this site before. The dogs actually have decent pedigrees and the breeders have normal sized dogs that they show. I assume they produced a few smaller dogs and thought that it would be a good marketing ploy to advertise the smaller size for people who want that and they probably charge more. The funny thing is that a smaller sized dog from a normal line can produce much larger puppies. People could pay the extra for a "miniature" dog and get nothing of the sort. It's really stupid.

    Bingo! Since I decided to get a Lab several months ago and have been researching the breed since, I have come to believe some will do anything to sell a "rare" sub-breed, not only for Labs but any breed. They just use some "rare" breed as a marketing ploy. The quickest way to stop people like this is for folks to educate themselves on the dog they want and how to select their dog and not buy on a whim.
