Brindle coat on puppy?

We recently got our girl (9 weeks) and were told she was purebred Golden Retriever, and she certainly looks like she has Golden in her - but after reading the standards we feel she is a mix- She has white paws, chest and slightly brindle coat. I realize the white in her isn't going anywhere, but is it possible for puppies to have brindling in their coats? Is it something that will fade as she gets older? Plus she has very light almost green eyes...
Has anyone heard of an Italian Golden Retriever?
Any thoughts appreciated!
Emily

She's a lovely puppy, but there are a number of things about her that indicate she's probably not a full Golden (coat, color, pigment, eyes, head, ears, etc.). White mismarks are very possible on a GR, most commonly on the feet, chest, and head, but I've never heard of a brindle coat nor the brownish tint to your pup.

There's also no such thing as an Italian GR, unless you mean a GR who lives in Italy.

You were definitely lied to by the person who sold you the dog. Did this person claim AKC affiliation or any other kind of membership or affiliation with a purebred dog group or a Golden Retriever club?

Obviously, you won't give up your dog now that you have her, but you may be entitled to get some or all of your money back from this person, and at the very least they should be reported to whatever organizations they claim to be a member of. You can also post the breeder's kennel name here so others can find it and avoid being defrauded like you were.

I have to agree with Tippy, here. My first thought was that this is not a purebred Golden puppy. She is cute as a bug though

She is absolutely adorable, but I also agree with Tippy. If you were charged a price for a purebred golden retriever, I think you need to pursue getting some of your purchase price back.
I'm sure you will love her just the way she is. Welcome to the forum!

I couldn't agree more with the above posts. She's so darn cute and I hope that you'll love her no matter what, but I don't even think she's a golden mix. Did you receive AKC paperwork with the puppy? If so, I'd report them to the AKC so you might be able to get some $ back.

I also think she's a mix, but definitely a golden mix. She's really darn cute, and her eyes are very pretty.

I see this kind of dog in your pup - maybe only partly from weimaraner...but noticable to me.

Wow....The eyes......she's going to be a great addition to your family.
Just for fun do one of those Canine Heritage dna tests....costs about 70$ but it would be interesting to see the results and also good info if this ever goes to court.
And yes, I'd stomp on this "breeder" real hard.

Oh, and if the "breeder" told you she was an Italian Golden Retriever......ask them if they've ever heard of the Brooklyn Bridge being for sale.....

There is a breed of spaniel called an italian... something. I can't remember the name of it but a man in my neighbourhood has one but she looks almost like she could be part of that. I'll try to find a pic and the breed name haha. Shes adorable though!

Agree with everything said above and would follow up with the person who sold you this pup as a pure bred golden. However, she is super cute and your girls seem to love her. I also love the pic of her cuddling up with your boxer. They look like best friends already.
