I think it's disgusting what people are doing. They are clearly crossing weimaraner x labrador, and then come with this b******t that it's "genetic". Funny that this "genetic" only seems to happen in the U.S. Regards,
Karen said it all: Fast money. While they sell pure labradors for $500, $600, the "silver labs" are sold by $1.000 $1.200, only because people are stupid and know nothing about labradors before buying a puppy. I just hope that this disgrace don't come to Brazil. Regards,
You would think those that can afford to pay that much would want all the "kosher" paperwork that goes with a pedigree lab too? Or do they have more money than sense? I am surprised a the low $ price for a lab tho. Here in France a good lab can cost anything from €850 to €1,000!
it is still a purebred lab, there is a gene which dilutes the original colour which is how you get the very pale yellow but almost white labs too, that has got into the chocolate colour too and so genetically they are chocolate, I dont mind them to be honest but I wouldnt choose to own one, but them I wouldnt choose to own a choccie either, doesnt mean that theyre not lovely dogs. However I feel dogs should be bred for their health and temprament rather than aethetic values or price, for instance in the last 10 years I feel choccies have grown so much in popularity (certainly in Southampton) and I know more choccies walk there than yellows or blacks and some of them are badly bred in an effort to get chocolate pups rather than yellow or black, that is wrong. at the end of the day a lab is a lab is a lab and there all sweethearts who make their owners very happy and thats what matters.
Proving that they are doing dodgy stuff, they never put the full pedigrees of the dogs in their websites. One of them has even the cheek to charge $10 to send you a copy of a pedigree if you want to see it. And, not happy in creating these "silver labs", they also created the "charcoal lab", which is a darker version of the "silver lab". Maybe soon they will be showing blue and green labs and swearing they have genetic accidental colour changes. Regards,
vogue was 500 from a professional breeder as a pure lab however richey was 125 from a home breeder (the bitch came into season earlier than expected) and although his dad is pure lab and his mums pure goldie his a mixed lil boy, i love them both the same tho!
