re pictures of golden retriever

Sorry I have no more pics as of yet, but she looks just like the first pic that mona b posted.
Someone once told me that if the dog has a solid color on the roof of their mouth it is purebred. Does anyone know if that is true?

No that is not true at all.Old wives tail.

All dogs have a solid colour.Even mixed breeds.But there are some who have a spot of black.That's what's called a pigment.It is also on the tongue.My sisters Border Collie has a black spot on the roof of her mouth.

When you get the chance,post some more pics.
