Yellow lab is a subtype of labrador retriever breed dogs. The coat-color of the dog is yellow or similar shades, in fact it is a dark, almost butterscotch color. The shade was known as "Golden" until required to be changed by the UK Kennel Club, on the grounds that "Gold" was not actually a colour. Over the 20th century a preference for far lighter shades of yellow through to cream prevailed, until today most yellow Labradors are of this shade. Also fawn has been a common colour in the yellow lab variety. Check out the below list for more options of yellow labradors dog names.
