Many people in Canada are not familiar with the unique colours of Silver and Charcoal Labrador Retrievers. In fact our local vets were pleasantly surprised to learn of these colours.
By the end of the Twentieth Century the frequency of Silvers increased in North America due to the numbers of Chocolate labs in the Labrador Retriever gene pool. Extensive DNA testing and mapping was carried out at the end of the Twentieth Century to prove to disbelievers there is such a colour in the gene pool of Labrador Retrievers, which is obtained through diluted recessive genes.
Charcoal labs are Silver factored yellow labs. Charcoals occur randomly through any Lab - Lab Breeding - or - are intentionally produced by breeding a Yellow lab with a Silver lab.
There is no difference in temperament, hunting abilities, health or other attributes between Silver and any other coloured labs.
Regardless of colour, Labrador Retrievers are wonderful family pets and are excellent hunting dogs and devoted companions.
NOT SURE IF SILVERS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU...?
COME HAVE A LOOK AND BE YOUR OWN JUDGE.

Sadie is an English styled lab. She is as perfect as they come and we are looking to see her off-spring in 2014.
Molly comes to us as a 8 wk. old puppy from Horizon Labradors out of Georgia, USA.
This beautiful Champagne lab absolutely loves the water. She is always the first one in the pond and last one out!!! She also sports keen retrieving abilities.
