Not a dudley, She has pigmentation and a dudley has none. I'd guess she has quite a bit of the chocolate gene in her. She is very similar to my old Beth who was out of a chocolate mated to a yellow. See her photo below. As to if she is pure bred, thats impossible to say, but certainly I'd say she has a lot of Labrador in her.

No, not dudleys, the nose and the skin around the eyes is too brown. It would be a light pink for a dudley, also the eyes are usually blueish in colour rather than the usual brown. Chocolate dogs generally have brown pigmentation and blacks have black. Yellows can have either brown or black pigmentation depending on the dogs behind them.

Pigmentation is what gives the skin colour. In a Labrador either black or brown. Dudleys lack that pigmentation so the skin is a natural pink colour. The lack of pigmentation can cause a dog problems such as getting sunburn.
