So we have a new sales associate at work who has 4 dogs, one of which is a chocolate lab puppy. They have found a breeder of "silver" labs in southern Ohio who is selling puppies for $1200 and now they want to buy one and start breeding, obviously for money. I've gently told her that silver isn't a recognized color for labs but of course, the breeder is advertising them as registered AKC. So rather than going off on the "what do you know about being a responsible breeder" argument, I've suggested to her that she talk to a Lab club about the silver color, see what they tell her. The pictures I've seen on-line look like labs mixed with Weimeraner. Any other suggestions I could throw out? It irks me when someone has a registered dog so they think it's ok to get into the puppy business. But at the same time, I will be working very closely with this person and don't want to alienate anyone because of their personal life.
