I am actually a very proud owner of a Dudley. It usually occurs when a chocolate Lab is bred with a yellow Lab resulting in a yellow Lab with no black pigmentation around the eyes. mouth and nose. So more or less the color around the eyes, and mouth and the nose color is not black but a tan pink.
When the nose is a brown/red colour.
It was also the name of the dog in Wacky Races ^_^
"A Dudley Lab is a Labrador retriever that lacks pigmentation on the eyes, eye rims, muzzle, and nose.
This is a genetic trait that is very rare and affects only the yellow Labrador retrievers.
This trait can't be considered as an abnormality of the genes.
Usually yellow Labs have black pigmentation on those areas while Dudley Labs don't"
A yellow lab may have a light nose, snow nose, and not be a dudley. Dudley refers to the lack of pigmentation of more than just the nose, including the gum tissue and eye rims. If it does not lack pigmentation, the dog is not dudley.
