The guy said it's because they were from German lines?

In any case, they're adorable... I've seen some golden/newfoundlands mixes too, it's my two favorite breeds so needless to say I would love to have one, lol!

Wouldn't that be considered a HUGE flaw in this breed's standards? Lol it even has golden in their names.

Yes. That's why I guess if breeders get them, they destroy them. Sounds like it is possible... that a recessive gene comes through...

I Have A So Called "black Retriever" It Is Really Called A Flat Coated Retriever. The Reason It Is Called Flat Coated Is Because The Greek Word Flate' Meaning Black In English, And The Word Coated Meaning "all Or Whole" In Other Words The Entire Body.

I'd love to meet a flat coated ! They've only been recognized for 15 years.

''I also have a friend who breeds BullMastiff's, she has been breeding for years top show quality dogs. She recently had a long coated BullMastiff pup...it was given to a pet home and her kennel name was not attached to it as per an agreement between the new owner and breeder. I have also met a Blue Merle Rottweiler, this was a recessive gene that sprung up in this line years down the lineage.''

Well, I can understand a bullmastiff having a long haired pup because originally weren't all mastiffs today started from the Tibetan mastiffs that are long a long haired breed? But even still I would imagine that by now it wouldn't be common and if it was there's obviously something very wrong. I think its more likely to be a mutt than a purebred showing a recessive trait that's from 100+ years ago.

A flat coated retreiver is pretty much a black golden retreiver. My dad has a friend of his who has an old Flatty named Bert and I always thought he was a golden mix but he informed me of what he really was and i even met a breeder of flattys once.
