The website lists it as golden retriever / setter mix. It looks like flat coat to me? Any opinions?

It looks like a flat coat, but without seeing how tall and how long the ears are, those could be the clues leading them to believe he/she is part setter. Very cute!

It certainly looks a bit like a flattie, but they're actually fairly rare, and lots of lab/golden crosses and other mixes can have longer black coats and be about the right size without having a drop of flat-coat blood. So I'd guess lab/golden, just based on likelihood.

He looks like a keeper to me. I know you have been looking for a companion and I think if him and Puf get along take that sweetie home. Gorgeous dog.

Years ago we had a lab / spring spaniel mix ( at least that is what they told us he was ) that looked alot like that.

ditto

would a golden-setter X be that dark?
They can be. Black coat genes can override golden and liver genes. You don't usually get a blend.

Edited to add: I misread the original post. I was thinking of a lab x golden. I don't see how a golden x setter would be that dark.

Perhaps if it was mixed with a Gordon setter (which is primarily black)

Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately I don't think I can take him just yet. I want puf to be at least 1.5 years old before I bring home another dog. Although I am not sure how I will wait the 9 months ;)

(I am also not sure I could deal with the crazy lady who runs this place. She's one of those, "I love animals but I can't stand humans" people)
