overview of the White Labrador Retriever Dog Breed
Are you looking for a friendly, athletic dog with a striking white coat?
See our White Labrador Retriever puppies below!
The Labrador Retriever breed has been one of America’s best-selling breeds for years, and they are famous for a reason! These easy-going dogs are friendly to people and animals, love to be outdoors, and are easy to train.
Labradors with white coats are strikingly beautiful and are more unusual than the classic black, chocolate, or yellow Labrador Retrievers.
White Labradors are actually very light yellow labs – bred intentionally to appear white or cream-colored.
White Labrador Retriever puppies will darken slightly as they mature and may be a cream or pale yellow as an adult. You can get an idea of the color they will become by looking at your puppy’s ears.
Remember when choosing your white labrador puppy that temperament, health, and intelligence are more important than color!You can also view our Black, Yellow, Chocolate, or Silver. You can also view our other puppies for sale!
White Labrador Retriever temperament
Friendly: The Labrador Retrievers are known for their friendly personalities. Whether it’s strangers or other animals, Labs love making new friends and being with other people and animals. For this reason, they don’t usually make the best guard dogs.
Alertness: While not typically aggressive, Labs can be good watchdogs due to their alertness and tendency to bark when they sense something unusual or unfamiliar.
Loyal and Affectionate: Labs often form strong bonds with their families. They are loyal companions who enjoy spending quality time with their owners. Their affectionate nature makes them great family pets.
Outgoing: Labs are not shy! They are full of energy and love to be involved in whatever is happening around them.
Hard-working: Labs love to hunt and retrieve, and they also fit other roles such as guide dogs, search-and-rescue, and therapy dogs. They are most happy when they are busy, especially when they’re helping their owner!
Energetic: Labs have an exuberance for life, and Labrador Retriever puppies need regular training when they are young to help them properly harness their energy and enthusiasm. Without sufficient exercise, they will keep themselves busy — destroying anything they can find. They make excellent running, biking, swimming, and hunting partners!
Smart: Labrador Retrievers are an intelligent breed, and their eagerness to please makes them easy to train.
White Labrador Retriever Breed history
The Labrador Retriever breed has its origins in Newfoundland, which is off the Canadian coast. Labs were originally called “St. John’s Dog” after the capital city of Newfoundland. Hunters and fishermen used these dogs as retrievers in the water.
It is thought that the St. John’s Dog was crossbred in the 1700s with the Newfoundland Dog and other smaller water dogs.
British sailors who visited northern North America noticed the speed and ability of these dogs, and they began bringing them back to England. One of the most notable British to bring back one of these dogs was the Earl of Malmesbury. He took his new dogs hunting in the swamps and water of his estate.
The breed continued to grow in popularity, and in 1903 the Labrador Retriever was officially recognized by the English Kennel Club. The American Kennel Club recognized the Labrador Retriever in 1917.
The AKC recognizes three colors of Labrador Retrievers: black, yellow, and chocolate.
Since white labradors are actually yellow labs with the lightest pigments and intentionally bred to look white or cream, they are considered “yellow labs.”
White Labrador Retriever Average size
Labrador Retrievers generally grow to be 22-25″ tall at the shoulder and weigh around 65-80 pounds as adults.
Average White Labrador Retriever lifespan
White Labrador Retrievers have a typical lifespan of 10-12 years.
White Labrador Retriever body features
Labrador Retrievers have a strong, sturdy build, expressive, kind eyes, and a thick “otter tail” for swimming.
White labradors are usually yellow labs with the very lightest pigments – bred to look intentionally to look white or cream-colored.
White labs have thick, short, waterproof coats.
grooming Your White Labrador Retriever Puppy
Bred for the water, Labrador Retrievers have a double-layer waterproof coat that protects them from cold and moisture.
The topcoat is a shorter coat that is straight, and the undercoat is a softer and water-resistant coat.
As with any double-coated breed, they shed seasonally twice a year and moderately the rest of the year.
Thankfully, their coats are easy to groom, and most Labrador Retrievers are receptive to grooming, especially if started at a young age and done consistently. Labs should be groomed several times a week and daily if kept inside.
Keeping Your White Labrador Retriever Puppy Healthy
Labrador Retrievers are an overall healthy breed, and they typically don’t require any unusual care.
Due to their floppy ears and their love for water, you will want to check regularly behind the ears for infection. To prevent infection, make sure the ears completely dry out whenever your White Labrador Retriever becomes wet.
Like all dogs, Labs are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia. Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.
Typical White Labrador Retriever Allergens
In talking of allergen levels with Labs, it is important to know what causes allergens.
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that is shed.
With their heavy seasonal shedding, White Labrador Retrievers are not an allergen-friendly dog. However, you can minimize allergens with regular bathing and brushing.
If allergens are a concern with you or someone in your family, please talk to your family doctor before purchasing a White Labrador Retriever puppy.

- 1. Are White Labs rare?White Labs are certainly not as common as other colors. If you want a White Lab in particular, your puppy search may take a bit longer.
- 2. Are White Labs more expensive than other colors?Whether or not a White Lab is more expensive than its littermates is up to the discretion of the breeder. However, some breeders may sell White Labs at a higher price because they are rarer than other colors.
- 3. Is it difficult to keep a White Lab clean?That depends on your lifestyle and where you keep your Lab. If your White Lab is a housedog, it shouldn’t be difficult to keep him clean, but if he roves all over the countryside (as Labs are apt to do) he’ll probably get a lot dirtier!
- 4. Are White Labs the same as Yellow Labs?That depends. Most White Labs are just Yellow Labs with very pale coats. These dogs are exactly the same as all other Labs, except for the light color of their fur. However, a few White Labs’ white coats are the result of albinism. Albino Labs are very rare, and you can tell them apart from other White Labs because they will lack pigment in their eyes and nose as well as their coats.
- 5. Is there a personality difference in Labs depending on the color?Some claim there are personality differences between the different colors of Labs. However, coat color in Labs is determined by two genes that have nothing to do with personality, and there is no evidence to back up the claim that coat color affects personality.
- 6. What colors of eyes can White Labs have?White Labs typically have brown eyes. Any other color is extremely rare and is probably a sign of impure genetics.
- 7. What color are adult White Labs?Most White Lab puppies will darken slightly as they mature. A pure white puppy may become a pale yellow or cream adult dog.
- 8. What is the rarest color of Lab?Most dog lovers agree that Silver Labs are the rarest color.
- 9. Is white a popular color for Labs?White Labs are not common, but they are highly prized for their beautiful white coats. The average dog owner may not seek out white labs because they are rare and may be more expensive than other colors.
- 10. What other colors can Labs be?Black is the most common color for Labs, but they can also be yellow, chocolate, fox red, and silver.
