    Send out the canine forensics team to the Susquehanna affix for solid evidence. (Sorry, Richard, couldn't resist.)

    Yes.....



    This is Grandmother - Mother - Son.

    We currently have 3 fox red yellows in our household.

    There are several very nice lines that have produced the darker shades of yellow.

    Dave Combs brought this dog to our May 5-6 test

    I thought it was a fox red Lab but it could have been a Pigment of my imagination.

    LH,
    The "fox red" color is not recognized by AKC or UKC. Fox reds are considered yellows.

    From the Labrador Retriever Standards on AKC web site:
    "Color
    The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable. White hairs from aging or scarring are not to be misinterpreted as brindling. Black--Blacks are all black. A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog. Chocolate--Chocolates can vary in shade from light to dark chocolate. Chocolate with brindle or tan markings is a disqualification. "

    They do recognize it, but all yellow dogs are registered as yellow, the particular shade of yellow isn't denoted on the pedigree.
