Yellow Lab?

Postby djlynn03 » Mon Oct 19, 2020 11:37 pm

Would I be correct in assuming that this is not a yellow lab? It does not have the black fin colorations and instead has a lighter coloring on its fins. It also has red eyes if that is important. I bought it from a local pet store as a yellow lab.

This doesn't look like mine (the link sir keith provided). I think this is your run of the mill lab/red zebra hybrid.

It does look like it has a lot of orange for a yellow lab which is typical of the lab/estherae hybrid. Red eyes might be an anomaly from the usual cross.

I’ve had many yellow labs before and this definitely doesn’t look like a yellow lab. :)
