Can you define a dudley for me? Cause I have no idea as to what that is. Besides that, it looks like you have a yellow Lab to me. She looks a bit darker, but that's it. And welcome to the forum. :)

thankks! well from research just on google a dudley is a yellow lab that has pink pigmentation on the nose eyes and lips and gums! this comes from that a dudley has a chocolate gene in its DNA! so thats what im trying to find out if my dog has chocolate gene so i can breed her and have chocolate pups??!

and yeah she seems a little darker! but is that normal for yellow labss??

Yes Yellow Labs can be light or dark. I've seen some, on the internet, that are silver! Just to fair warn you, not everyone here, myself included, are a fan of people breeding their dog. There are so many unwanted dogs in shelters, why would you want to breed and create more unwanted pups? That's a rhetoric question and you don't have to listen obviously and I'm not saying that at all harshly. But if you want to breed, I would say please please please do your research before starting and make sure, when you get a male, that he's caught up on all his shots and is healthy. And that please again you two aren't in it for the money.

*For others who read my post....I'm not promoting breeding. But if Robert01 wants to do it, I'm just asking him to please research all options and do research plainly first.*

Editing here: Just learned from a friend that Silver Labs don't exist. Sorry about that.

You know, you probably need to find a good mentor in labs to help you make breeding decisions. Especially if you don't evwen know if her coloration is normal. Of course, more important than the colors you get would be getting the necessary health clearances like OFA or Penn Hip cleared hips, clear elbows, normal thyroid, normal eyes, etc.

That's because silver labs arn't labs ;) The first kennel they came from also bred Weims.... but I ain't going to get into that discussion.

If you don't even know if your pup is a dudly or not, are not going to hunt or do some kind of venue with her, spend the thousands of dollars for health testing do not breed her.

so are you saying my dog isnt healthy or whatt??!! cuz im pretty sure she is!
We are not saying your dog isn't healthy just that you shouldn't breed her. The things pawzk9 said are common problems in labs that should be checked for if you are going to breed your dog. And that gets pricey. So breeding her would do nothing but hurt the lab breed not help it.

yeahh i understand where you coming from! but i wanna chocolate lab puppy from her:(((
!
Don't breed her and get her fixed. Simple. Yes, you want a pup from her but it can be un-healthy for the mom. Plus what if there is an emergency? You just said you wouldn't pay thousands of dollars, that could happen if you breed her.


history on what?

I think that yellow labs can range from White to Fox Red. I don't know Lab color genetics or which sex determines color, but I believe out of a 10 pup litter you have a chance of a rainbow that ranges from white to yellow to red to brown to black. I don't know the distribution.

I believe that the other postings wanted to inform you that even with a healthy father and mother, if they carry the common Lab genes for some pretty nasty structural issues, then you can have a 25% - 50% chance of getting pups with gene combinations that aren't healthy... this could mean that 5 pups out of 10 turn out to have problems. Genetic testing for your pup and the stud can eliminate that potential, improving the chance for continuing a line of healthy pups.
