Are Silver Labs Pure bred Labrador Retriever?
DNA testing and
mapping of silver labs was done during the close of the Twentieth Century
and meticulous investigation of each silver labs ancestry was conducted by
investigators from AKC. All conclusions were the same, i.e., "there
was no reason to doubt that the dogs were purebred Labrador
Retrievers," (see conclusion issued by AKC). Amazingly, the Flat
Earth Opponents of Silver Labs counter these scientific conclusions with
the incredibly insane accusation that the "cross-breeding" which
allegedly produced the Silver Labs was either covered up by line breeding
or happened to long ago to be detected by DNA testing. If anyone ever
needed an indication of just how ignorant opponents of Silver Labs are,
this statement should be the key. Every K-9 carries in its genes a
complete history of its ancestors going all the way back to wolves.
Silver Labs are pure bred
Labrador Retrievers and their ancestry is beyond reproach. Fortunately,
kennel clubs around the world do not have the political pressure from
mercenary American breeders of "normal" colored labs and
already accept silver labs without all the political fuss and pressure
being applied to AKC (the original standard for a lab has always been
"a coat of a solid color"). If a person should come upon one of
the remaining "Silver Lab Hate sites" on the net and develops
ANY doubts about Silver Labs, that person should go directly to AKC and
ask the pertinent question to learn the facts.
Why The AKC Registers Silver Labradors As Chocolate
"In 1987 we
conducted an inquiry into the breeding of the litters that contained the
dogs that were registered as silver and one of our representatives was
sent to observe several of the dogs that had been registered as silver.
Color photographs of these dogs were forwarded to the office of the
American Kennel Club where the staff of the AKC and the representative
of the Labrador Retriever Club of America examined them. Both
parties were satisfied that there was no reason to doubt that the dogs
were purebred Labrador Retrievers, however both parties felt that the
dogs were incorrectly registered as silver. Since the breed
standard describes chocolate as ranging in shade from Sedge to
Chocolate, it was felt that the dogs could more accurately be described
as chocolate than as silver."
We feel it is just a matter of time before the AKC recognizes the Silver Lab color as it's own separate color.
