I do think shelters get it wrong mot of them time. A black dog with short hair isusually a lab or lab mix, a golden dog with longer hair is usually a golden retriever or a golden mix, etc, etc. My ex DIL got a "black lab" from a rescue and the only thing lab about him was his black color. Andit isn't just shelters. My Sophie is pure golden retriever, but she is what is called a "red golden" or a "field golden". Goldens rage from almost pure white to deep mahogany. I have had 3 of the golden, 3 of the red, and two of the red were a darker red and so many have called them "fish Setter". Only their colort looked Irish (and I have had had two Irish Setters, so I know). You can't go on color, markers, etc alone, but also on body parts totaled up. I would hav no idea what 90% of the dogs in pounds were..unless goldens, Pyrenees, Irish Setters, English Setters, Pointers--dogs have had owned and been around for my entire 70 years.
