Mismarked Golden Retriever Puppy

Hi Everyone,

I was just curious as to peoples thoughts on this. We have recently brought home a "mismarked" golden retriever puppy (she will be 10 weeks old tomorrow) and is an absolute joy.

I have done some research on mismarking and can't find very much on goldens (its mostly on Labs). I have heard of having some white on the chest or toes, but mine is pretty heavily mismarked. The mother is a purebreed golden. The father (who is also mismarked) is also a purbreed- but not registered. The story is that he is from registered parents, all of his littermates were registered but he wasn't because of his markings.

I have included 4 photos.
1. Our pup (10weeks old)
2. the parents (mother is the golden, father is the golden mismark)
3. Our pup at 17 days old
4. The father as a puppy.

Is it possible to have a golden this heavily mismarked, or do you think there is a distinct possibility there may be another breed mixed in?

I would love everyones thoughts/expertise - mostly out of curiosity!!!

I'll let the experts comment on the breeding aspect... but from a golden lovers aspect, he's ADORABLE and as long as he's your sweet fur baby and full of love, that's the important thing. Give him a hug and scratch fromthe golden crowd at our house.

I'm curious, why did they breed the male who is clearly not within breed standard?

Your baby is adorable.

Your pup is very cute. and Welcome!
I don't know much about breeding but I would think there has to be some other breed mixed in there.
The parents are nice looking dogs. The mother is a beautiful golden.
I wonder why they didn't breed her with a registered golden or was it an "accident"?

He sure is a cutie-pie. Our little golden mix has white on his face which kind of makes him look older than he is but love him just the way he is.
