Golden Retriever Coat Color genetics –

According to some sources, the coat color of golden retrievers is influenced by two pairs of genes: B/b and E/e12 The B gene determines whether the dog is black or brown, and the E gene determines whether the dog expresses the black or brown pigment.

If a dog has at least one dominant B gene and at least one dominant E gene, it will be black. If a dog has two recessive b genes and at least one dominant E gene, it will be brown. If a dog has two recessive e genes, regardless of the B/b genes, it will be yellow.

The shade of yellow can vary from cream to dark gold, depending on the intensity of the inherited gene3 The Golden Retriever ancestry brings only shades of cream, apricot and red to the breed.

Therefore, dark shade golden retrievers belong to any country where golden retrievers are bred with two recessive e genes and a high intensity of the yellow gene. Light shade golden retrievers belong to any country where golden retrievers are bred with two recessive e genes and a low intensity of the yellow gene.

Some sources suggest that dark shade golden retrievers are more common in America, while light shade golden retrievers are more popular in the UK. However, this may not be true for all breeders and regions.
