Sonny is the only brindle Labrador I ever produced. In fact Sonny is the only Labrador with a coat defect I ever produced. Some people regret that, because they love brindle or black and tan Labradors, but if you are a serious breeder of Labrador Retrievers you try to avoid breeding dogs with a coat defect. To be able to breed Labradors with a coat defect, both the sire and the dam need to carry the gene for this particular defect. So once I knew who the carriers were, I stopped breeding them to each other.

If you want to know if your Labrador carries brindle or tan point, you can have its DNA (K-locus) tested by VetGen, and probably by other firms as well. Just go to your vet and let him send your dog's blood sample to VetGen.

 Hi,
Found the picture of Sonny on the net and would like to send you a picture
of my Labrador called Yuna. She looks so similar! I chose her because of her
mismarks which I find really beautiful. As I don´t intend to show her, it´s
fine for me. And the whole family is totally in love with her..
Many regards,
Silke from Germany, Hamburg
