The Labrador Retriever is America's #1 Favorite dog, and with that, we're not going to rehash the development or temperament of the breed. Labradors are super common and most know what a Labrador is. We are firm supporters that the true Labrador Retriever comes in the three main colors, Black, Chocolate, and Yellow, with yellow varying in shade from the lightest cream to the darkest fox red. Fox Red is a focus in the Liberty Run Labrador program. Confusion does come with the Fox Red color. Fox Red is simply a shade of yellow, and as such, they are registered as Yellow Labrador Retrievers. The Fox Red shade of yellow has been in the breed since it's beginning, and should never be classified as incorrect. Mentioned specifically in the description of yellow in the AKC Official Standard for the Labrador Retriever, Fox Red Labs can be shown in AKC conformation, although it is difficult to finish championships. Not only is the Labrador ring extremely competitive, being the unusual color in the ring is difficult. Our goal is to achieve this at some point in our future, and with that we are working on improving the strength of our Labrador program.
