New Member and New Golden(Pics added)

Hi , i recently got a golden retriever pup ( atleast that's what the breeder says) but i think he is a golden labrador but still he is the best. I had a spitz before and he died of old age a long time ago.
I am hoping that the members here can help me decide wether he is a golden retriever or a labrador.





The name is DUDE

I'll let breed experts chime in because I can't tell! He sure is gorgeous though. You could do DNA test to find out Welcome to GRF!

Labs are retrievers as well.

Sometimes it's harder to tell when they're so young. Don't let the short hair fool you. I've seen goldens with short hair (not as short as a labs though).

She might be mix between the two.

He is adorable! I'm not an expert either but he looks like he has Golden in him. Was he sold as a purebred Golden?

yes he was sold as a purebred golden. The breeder himself is amazed becoz i sent him these pics and he said that he double checked the parents are pure golden retievers.

Welcome, your pup is very sweet. Looks Golden Retriever to me as too feathery and fluffy to be a labrador and has the typical Retriever lines on the face but could be a cross too I guess. The second photo is very Retriever looking. Whichever he is, he's lovely!
