Okay so my neighbor has 2 yellow labs.. When I compliment what beauties the are and that I love yellow labs, he gets defensive and says that only one is yellow.. The other is white ??? The other is just a lighter shade of yellow in my opinion. But I also knew a guy who had a "blue lab" I think that the lab was just soooo black and shiny that he looked blue when the light hit him just right..Then I read an article about a "red" lab.. which appeared to actually just be a light yet rich colored chocolate lab...The guy with the blue lab paid a small fortune for his dog.. and I wonder if there really is such a thing as a Red, White, or Blue lab???I figure if anyone would know, you guys would
No, according to the breed standard, there are only, Yellow, Chocolate, and Black Labs. Yellow can range from White to Fox Red, and Chocolate can range from Milk to Dark, and Black can be different shades of black. (just like humans). Anyone who pays more for a "rare" colored lab needs to be better informed. Even though the probably wont listen.
Thats what I thought.. Thank you!
You can go to the AKC website and print out the breed standard for backup. It might help you in the future.
My two babies are yellow labs; one is white and the other a more champaign color down his back.

The red labs are actually a variation of yellow...Originally Posted by ShadowDancin
Suckers. They are everywhere, and you cannot reason with them.
I'm obviously no pro at all here.....but Callie was my first yellow, but people insisted she was called a "fox red" lab, no matter how much I argued there was no such thing:
Callie the yellow lab
Riley the yellow lab
