I held a few white ones that were born out of black parents, or a black and yellow bred...they were almost always stillborn. without the strength to take a first breath. I would be very careful how i invested my heart here.

There are some very light goldens.....some are close to white at birth...If the tip of their ears are darker, this will be their true color. Pigment is the thing. Dark nose, dark around eyes etc. Liver pigment is bad breeding.

I don't know a whole lot about labs. But i heard in England or Britain or something like that they have a breed of lab which is white but i think is called something like a Royal Lab im not sure i saw it on animal planet awhile back.

Oh wait sorry that was a white golden retreiver *duh*

There is in Dog Fancy an add in the back about white labs. I only wish my ol boss was still around to see this. It was always his dream to have the white lab, but he never breed for color, always for intellience and temperment. He loved the light ones that had the black eyes and nose. The ad in dog fancy is exactly that. Old Boss's breeding was excellent. You can't look at my charlie without seeing a prime example of the best qualities a lab can have,,,,big boxy head..etc. I would study, investigate, talk to people that own them what ever it took before i risked my heart. Bronki was the unusual one for the gs pointer. His white color is what made him so beautiful visual..and it is what made me have to put away the best friend i ever had and the one thing that loved me most in my whole life....at 7 years old. I would have given anything..just anything to have him with me for the rest of my life. He was more than a dog to me...a little girl once said she thought of us as 1...smkie and Bronki were a unit...and now i don't have him with me anymore..his intelligence was supreme..his genetic buildup was weak. Tell your friend that for me please. Bronki was not bred to be his color. It was an accident of nature. If someone is breeding them weak they are hurting the one that will love you most..don't support it....if they can in a contract in sure that their dogs are as strong as a black dog out of black parents then maybe it is ok. I simply do not know how they arrived at that color without breeding weaker strains of a breed. I can tell you what is to see a newborn puppy die in the palm of your hand because his little heart is just to weak to pump his blood and his lungs to weak to take more than a few breaths of this earth. I don't know why white is this way...i don't know why i am so drawn to white dogs..finding them artiscally pleasing. There is a great dane..big, black and white that takes my breath away they are so handsome..but i have to wonder..is that why the dane in the gallery is deaf? Too much white? Did someone do this to him just to get the color? It isn't right.

Deafness seems to be a problem that haunts Danes. I don't know if it's tied to the mostly white ones or not, but the Harlequins aren't, I don't think, so inclined to deafness.

Nicco has photos of her Amira, a gorgeous Harlequin, in the gallery, and Torizmojo has the beautiful deaf Dane.

No GREAT BREEDER would sell over the internet!!! Championship dogs get these prices and their breeders are very choosy whom they sell to. A $2000. dog on line is a scam !!
