Labrador Retriever Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 6/14/2005
We bred a blonde male and a chocolate female and got all black puppies. One had white on her chest. Now, one of those males fathered puppies and one of his offspring in two different litters had a little bit of white on the feet. Not sure if front or back. Where is this coming from. I know the early labs had white on them and it was bred out. Is this coming out after generations?

8/19/05 Thank you for your question! The white chest is a birthmark that can be bred out, but it may take several litters to do this. Most of the time the white chest will won't show up on the yellow labradors but if bred with a black or a chocolate you stand a very high chance of passing on the gene. As for the breeding a yellow and chocolate.... well most of the time she will throw black pups. Again it's all part of the genes. Choclate and blacks will throw all colors, black and chocolate may throw black and choclolate pups and on occation a yellow. Good luck and I hope I answered your questions. I have more info on my web site. Dan Daniel & Stacey
