I recently got a black lab puppy from a someone on craigslist because I'm a cold heartless monster. He showed me pictures of the parents but I never actually saw them. I don't really think he lied about the puppy being full lab and the parents looked like perfect, classic black labs, BUT this is my first lab and her hair is sort of long, straight and fluffy. She's just over 11 weeks old now, she has a white medallion on her chest, and she has the typical english lab head shape. It's amazing how sweet and well behaved she is, but I still can't get it out of my head why she has this coat! When I look up long-haired lab puppies they all seem to have wavy hair but her's is straight. Anyway, it ultimately won't change anything but I really must satisfy this curiosity about whether this guy lied to me, it's just a genetic abnormality, or she is actually a mix. What do you guys think?
