Silver Pointing Labradors for Sale from Kansas
Prior to 1987, there were breeders who were unable to produce silver Pointing Labradors in their bloodline and as a result, started to protest. Because of this, silver Labs would begin to show on their AKC registration certificates and the color charts simply as “a shade of chocolate”. Nearing the end of the twentieth century, silver / gray labs increased in North America thanks to an incline of chocolate labs in the gene pool of Lab Retrievers, thus creating massive controversy within the community of Labrador Breeders. This slowly began to subside minus a few of the older more ignorant breeders, who are now be compared to those in the “flat earth society”. At Lankas Labs we are proud to offer silver Pointing Labs for Sale from Kansas.
History of Silver Pointing Labradors
Similar to many other breeds, Labradors evolved from wolves and despite the name, came from Newfoundland and not Labrador. Details about the coloring of silver and charcoal pointing Labradors comes from the American Kennel Club, who stated that “color is secondary to type, structure, and soundness. Recognized Newfoundland colors are black, brown, GRAY, and white and black.” History of the Newfoundland as also taken from the AKC, “There is much uncertainty about the origin of the Newfoundland. Some say that his ancestors are the white Great Pyrenees, dogs brought to the coast of Newfoundland by the Basque fishermen.”
Charcoal Labs for Sale in KS
Lankas Labs is also proud to breed charcoal Pointing Labs. For decades, charcoal Labs were commonly referred to as “Smoky Blacks” by breeders. Charcoal Pointing Labradors are available for sale from our land here in Kansas. In the past, charcoal Labs either occurred randomly in Lab to Lab breeding or be intentionally bred by breeding a yellow and silver Lab. If breeders were to combine two charcoal labs, it is common for this to result in a little or ¼ silver labs and ¾ other colored labs. It seems as though breeding charcoal Pointing Labradors is more of a science these days than anything else! From smoky blacks to their simple name, these charcoal Pointing Labradors for sale get cuter by the decade.
