|☆ AKC Registration of "Silvers" ☆
Labrador Retrievers that express the dilution gene (dd) are recognized and
registered by the American Kennel Club (AKC) based on their foundation genetic
colors, Black, Yellow, or Chocolate.
- Labradors that are descriptively called “Silver” are registered as their base
genetic color Chocolate.
- Labradors that are descriptively called “Charcoal” are registered as their base
genetic color Black.
- Labradors that are descriptively called “Champagne” are registered as their
base genetic color Yellow.
The policy of registering light shades of the breed standard-described colors was
established after a joint investigation by the AKC and Labrador Retriever Club of
America (LRC) in the 1980’s, wherein breed purity of “Silver” Labradors was
The use of descriptive color names is not new to the Labrador breed. Most
common is the use of "White" for genetically Yellow Labradors that lack most of
their pigment in the hair. The old breed studbooks contain many other
descriptive iterations of the accepted colors, jet=Black, slate=Black,
champagne=Yellow, cream=Yellow, butterscotch=Yellow, liver=Chocolate,

☆ Health Guarantee ☆
All of my pups come with a written 26 month genetic health guarantee & a 72
hour business day vet check full refund genetic soundness/health guarantee.
Dew claws are removed at 3 days old. They are also vaccinated starting at 5
weeks & every 2 - 3 weeks thereafter & wormed every 2 weeks. They will come
with a Puppy starter kit, a sample of NuVet Vitamins & micro-chipped.
Our 26 month genetic health guarantee is for a replacement pup only & applies to
life threatening genetic disorders only. Puppy must be vetted within 3 business
days of receipt of pup, after that this guarantee has no cash value. As do many
breeders, I require that "Sterling Creek" be used as a prefix or suffix in your
puppies AKC name. Your puppy must also be registered by 4 months of age.
PUP MUST BE MAINTAINED ON THE NUVET VITAMINS & ordered using my
breeder's code (52900) to keep your health guarantee in FULL FORCE. Many
breeders have started requiring this because, unfortunately, the majority of dogs
and cats are not receiving a complete, healthy diet and many become ill and die
prematurely. NuVet Labs™' main purpose is to help increase your pet's longevity
and quality of life. NuVet is loaded with cancer fighting vitamins & is dynamic for
skin allergies and dull coats. They also promote a healthy immune system &
increases longevity and activity levels in older arthritic dogs as well. Give these
as a treat for only
20-30 cents a day!
