So I saw my first "Red Fox Lab" yesterday. Her name was ginger and she was gorgeous. I told the lady that I also had a yellow lab, she was said "oh no hon this is a red fox lab, they are very hard to find." ::) Ginger was a very red color, very pretty lab.

Isn't that wonderful! She must be so proud of herself.

Wonder what she will feel like IF and when she finally finds out she's been had?

Wait, I thought Fox Red was legit? I know it's a very dark/off shade for yellow, but aren't they still referred to as Fox Reds?

They are pretty but sounds like she got a puppy mill dog and paid for it :( I hope the dog is happy and healthy.
She looked healthy. She was 3 years old and she def. had a lab personality. She was very friendly, kissed me to death and her tail never stopped wagging.

This is the litter I am getting my yellow girl from ;D. You can see the variations of color within the litter. I was hoping the dark yellow was a girl...unfortunately that is not the case, the yellow girls are the one with the purple collar and the uncollared one furthest to the right by mama's hind leg. They are only about 4 hours old in this picture. Dad is coal black.

The puppies on that site are cute, but they don't look like purebreed lab to me.

We no longer breed for Chocolate or White labrador puppies.

Isn't that just a variation of yellow? Not all yellow labs are the same shade.

"Oh sheesh, you have to use an example from a puppy mill?

Here is a history of the Fox Red

While not rare, they aren't common either.
As Laura mentioned, you can read all about the fox red shade of yellow on our web site:

I certainly is not a common shade but not what I would call extremely rare either. If anyone is interested, this is a litter of our all fox red puppies a couple of weeks before they went to their new homes:
