Young gray doesn't mean anything. I am 74 and my husband FINALY found about 5 gray hairs when he was washing my hair when I had a splint on my hand. My brothers all had gray whiskers by 50. My golden girl, Sophie had so little gray at almost 13 it was unreal. Here she is with her teddy bear. And Buck, he died of heart attack at 12 1/2 and he only had a little gray. Our other goldens re gold and gray didn't' show much. Sophie in the first two pictures was 11 when we adopted her.

Bentley my 8.5 yr old has zero white as of yet. People often mention they cant believe hes already 8.5 and shows no whitening yet.

My new signature picture is of the boys just last week. One of the neighborhood goldies is only 4 and is very white already on his face.

I guess its different for every dog.

I like to think its cause hes so loved by everyone.
