    Default White Labrador

    Hello All,

    We moved to Perth 4 years ago and had to leave our beloved Golden Lab Chloe behind with my father on his farm in NZ.
    We have promised both our 10 and 12 year old daughters another lab once we are settled in our own home.
    We are just about in a position now to purchase our first home here in Perth.
    Our eldest daughter is wanting a white labrador. I know that these are not a registered colour but I know that they do exist. If anyone knows of a breeder around Perth we would be forever grateful.
    Our daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy 10 days after moving to Perth so my husband and I are very determined to do this one special thing for her.

    Thank you all in anticipation

    Carmen

    pure snow white labradors don't really exist, and pale cream/yellow that look white are the best to hope for from a registered breeder.

    Try here, though I will warn you that it's best to leave color as a preference rather then say it has to be a certain way otherwise we wont take it.
    I'm not saying this out of my opinion but because a LOT of breeders get annoyed by people who are set on a specific coat or eye color and will not want them to have one of their pups.

    Good luck finding your new family addition

    EDIT: Just want to say I agree with post above, you wont find a white labrador, though you will probably be able to get a cream/yellow one.

    Moving overseas with an animal is very expensive, long, hard and stressful. They left her with family who I'm sure loves her very much, they didn't dump her at a pound or shelter. Of course taking your pet with you is ideal but sometimes it just isn't practical. We have had to move between Australia and New Zealand before and have had an older pet who just wouldn't handle the stress of travel, quarantine etc. plus not having a stable home to live also makes it very hard, we were living in hotels and cheap unit rentals until we were established enough to own another house so having a pet was impossible and that pet was very happy in a familiar environment left with family.

    Have you considered adopting a lab instead? I have owned both 'breeder purchased' and adopted labs and must say that the adopted just has that something 'special' about her, she just appears to be much more grateful and loyal and is just beautiful. There is also a great heartwarming feeling that you get knowing that you have saved a life. After I have rescued, I'm never going back to 'buying' a dog again- the benefits of rescue is just so great.

    Have a look here if you're interested Search all dogs

    I had a quick look and what about something like this dog? Sam HD222 - Large Male Labrador in WA - PetRescue

    Or this beauty? Sammy - Large Male Mix in WA - PetRescue

    Hi Elle burns,

    I am assuming from your comments that you are obviously very young and without children.
    Enough said......

    no actually im not very young and what does having children have to do with it?

    a dog is a LIFE LONG COMMITMENT...when you take a pup into your home you make a promise to care love and nuture this animal no matter what..If you cant afdford to take your dog when you move...DONT MOVE.
    like i said you wouldnt leave a human family member behind why is your "beloved lab" any differant?
    And dont even get me started on the "white lab" bull
    bah im sick of people treating dogs like accessories!

    You are very young, you only need to read your comments to figure that out.
    Being without a human family you really aren't in any position to comment. I must say that I hope for your sake that these judgemental comments are a "one off" otherwise I would imagine that your life will be extremely lonely.
    Like I had said earlier our Golden Labrador went to live with my father who adored her just as much as we do. We adopted her at a year old and she lived with us for 10 years before the move to Perth so an accessory she was definitely NOT.
    Anyway, I am over justifying myself to you. It was just a simple question that I had, that required no sarcasm or nastiness.

    To everyone else who commented, thank you so much for your understanding.
