Flatcoats come in YELLOW/BLACK/BROWN for more info go to:

The Flat-Coated Retriever is one of the least known purebred breeds. While many people are familiar with the more popular Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever, the Flat-Coat has similarities as well as differences from those Retrievers. The similarities are the happy-go-lucky attitude, the playfulness, and the strong family bond it makes.

However, there are 3 major differences between the Flat-Coat Retriever and the Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever:

#1: Flat-Coated Retrievers do not have an undercoat to shed; therefore, they shed less than the Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever.#2: The Flat-Coat is considered to be relatively inactive indoors, whereas, the Goldens and Labs are moderately active indoors.#3: Goldens and Labs, due to the thicker bone structure, weigh more than the Flattie.
