IVAN
We 1st became interested in the silver-charcoal color approximately 7 years ago.  At this time most of the dogs we found were more of the American type Labradors.  Their heads were not as big and blocky as the English type, which I much preferred, and their bodies were a lot slimmer and not as bulky as the dogs I like.
Through selective breeding and much help from other reputable breeders, I have finally come up with a look (and health clearances) that I would like to pass on to many more generations of silver-charcoal Labs.
​This is Ivan.  Him and his sister Tila, are the foundation stock for most of our Charcoals.
They are both beautiful specimens of what I am trying to accomplish with my silver-charcoal breeding program.  They are both great looking dogs with wonderful personalities, good hips and eyes, and great temperaments.

When you breed a dilute (silver-charcoal) Labrador to a yellow, black, or chocolate Labrador, you will not get any silver or charcoal puppies.  Instead, you will get black, yellow, or chocolate pups and they will be silver-charcoal factored.  This means that they carry the dilute gene and if bred to another Lab that carries the dilute gene, they may get silver-charcoal puppies.
Hoof-n-Paws Johnelle L Bean (Bean) is a charcoal factored black Labrador.  We have been breeding him with with our dilute factored females and we are getting fabulous results

A yellow Labrador with the double dilute gene is called a Champagne.  A champagne Labrador can vary in color from almost white to red.  This is Asti, he is a Champagne.  His mom was Charcoal and his dad was Silver.  He is a yellow that carries 2 dilute genes.
