Default Confused about Golden Lab / Yellow Lab

see now im confused ......... ive always said saffi was a golden labrador........... here in england we never say yellow labrador , always golden ........... no way has saffi got retriever in him , he is pure labrador with 12 champions on his fathers side and 17 champions on his mothers side, yet im seeing posts that are saying golden labs are cross?? , please can someone explain to me cos im all confuddled now pic of saffi shown (first pic is saffi at six weeks second pic at 16 weeks third pic at one year, we have all the appropriate papers to say that saffi is a pedigree pure lab ............ ummmmmm please dont think im complaining cos i dont care if saffi is a little ragamuffin cross bred 50 times over , we didnt get him to show or be in competitions or to breed so his papers are unimportant to us....... it was him we fell in love with and its him we adore...........ima just curious after being confused by posts

Looking at Saffi he LOOKS like a pure Labrador Retriever. It may be a question of terminolgy- people in the US sometimes (maybe?) say "Golden Lab" to refer to a Golden/Lab cross.

But if it makes you feel any better, Labs can have all kinds of "mismarks" and still be purebreds, including stripes,, points, etc. Take a look here:

In england we DO say yellow! lol. Labradors come in yellow, choc or black, then theres the GOLDEN retriever (different breed). You have a yellow labrador retriever. if someones calling something a golden lab, they mean a yellow lab. Labs, goldies and various other breeds are all RETREIVERS.

Yes, fellow brit - I always call Bonnie a Golden lab (she's purebreed too) but it doesn't make a iot of odds - technically you do say chocolate, black and yellow - but golden sounds better maybe

Beautiful photos!!

It might help solve your confusion if you look at the UKC & AKC sites & compare Labrador Retrievers & Golden Retrievers.

In UKC, look under the Gundog Category for breed standards (including color info where they refer to "yellow"):

UKC Breeds

In AKC, look under the Sporting Dog Category: (pics here too)

Golden labs gets confusing, normally when someone says "golden lab" they simply mean "yallow lab" the confusion is that some people call a Golden Retriever X Labrador Retriever a "Golden lab". Golden lab does NOT always mean mix, but to avoid confusing people, I would tell people your dog is a yellow lab, not a golden lab.

I agree ... I'd guess Saffi to be 100% Yellow Labrador Retriever.
