☆ 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 also confirmed.”

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,
brown=Chocolate, etc....
