Silver Labradors for sale Texas

There is a lot of controversy today surrounding the Silver Labrador Retriever. I assure you they are a purebred Labrador. The AKC has done many studies regarding this including DNA mapping and no cross breeding of this breed has ever been found. There’s a group of people I refer to as the “Flat-Earth” believers who cant seem to accept the hard facts and evidence presented by the AKC. But, this isn’t the first time such controversy has surrounded the wide ranges of colors in Labradors today. It took almost 100 years for the yellows to be accepted and many more years before the chocolates were accepted. In the early years of the Labrador breed, yellows and chocolates were “culled” or disposed of at birth. This sounds a lot like the same issues we have today surrounding the Silvers. There is such thing as hidden or dormant gene. It happens all the time. it happened when the Yellow Lab come about and the chocolates. You see in the 1800’s when the breed was created, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Newfoundlands, Foxhounds, Greyhounds, and Border Collies were used and interestingly enough, they all carry a silver dilute gene. Dilute Labradors are registered by their base color, which is their genetic color. This was a decision by the AKC and LRC in the 1980’s. Because the standard states that chocolate varies from light to dark Chocolate, it was decided the dilute Chocolates met the requirement of a “light” chocolate Labrador and should be registered as such. You can find the the AKC’s stance in silver labs on their website, Id also urge you to give them a call if you have questions. Don’t believe the “flat-earth” believers. Do your own research and ask the right people. Unfortunatly, the “flat-earth” Society who refuse to acknowledge the AKC’s acceptance of silver labs, continue to confuse the general public by making unfounded accusations about the purity of the Silver Labrador Breeding. All conclusions in the many investigations performed by the AKC have always been the same” there was no reason to doubt that the dogs were PUREBRED SILVER LABRADOR RETRIEVERS”.
