Pigmentation in Labs mostly occurs in yellow Labradors. Recessive genes cause pigmentation. Pigmentation in yellow Labradors normally shows up in the tail, feet, lips, nose, gums, and around the periphery of the eyes. The color of the pigmentation is usually black or liver. With age the yellow Labradors nose may turn pink.
