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.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! Now that was rare indeed! 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.*
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.so are you saying my dog isnt healthy or whatt??!! cuz im pretty sure she is!
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.yeahh i understand where you coming from! but i wanna chocolate lab puppy from her((
