About Silver Labrador Retrievers, Charcoal Labrador Retrievers, Champagne Labrador Retrievers

Although the AKC acknowledges the many different colors of the versatile Lab, including Silver and Charcoal, it is true the AKC only recognizes the Yellow, Black and Chocolate in the Show Ring.

 

"Labrador Retrievers that express the dilution gene (dd) are recognized and registered by the American Kennel Club (AKC) based on their foundation genetic... colors, Black, Yellow, or Chocolate.

 

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Silver” are registered as their base genetic color Chocolate.

 

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Charcoal” are registered as their base genetic color Black.

 

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Champagne” are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.

 

- Labradors that are descriptively called "Fox Red" are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.

 

- Labradors that are descriptively called "White" are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.

 

The policy of registering light shades of the breed standard-described colors was established after a joint investigation by the AKC and Labrador Retriever Club of America (LRC) in the 1980’s, wherein breed purity of “Silver” Labradors was also confirmed.

 

 

Arkansas Silver Labs
Many times people ask us about the hunting and training quality of our dogs. We let our puppies and videos speak for themselves. This is Steele, a silver lab pup at 8.5 weeks old. His new family has been working with him for only 2 weeks and he is already following commands.
