British Labrador breeders Tina Davis, 62, and her husband Martin Davis, 63, are enjoying success – they've managed to breed a dog that can give birth to puppies of three different colors in one litter. It was a long and difficult experiment, and it has not been over yet.
Here they are, record-breaking puppies – an extremely rare mix of black, yellow, and chocolate pups in the same litter
The puppies have been born perfectly healthy, which can't be said about their mom – it's her first and last pregnancy
The breeders came up with this idea 15 years ago when chocolate Labradors were extremely rare.
Moreover, according to the breeder, "Chocolate Labs are not renowned for being good gun dogs and we wanted to prove that with the right breeding, they could be up to the job. Things just progressed from there and we started breeding a variety of different colored Labs."
Now they can breed dogs that produce all three colors!
"Only a tiny handful of Labradors have the genetic predisposition to produce all three colours, and even less are mated to a partner dog to make this happen. Labradors can often carry a lot of genetic problems so it's not just about the colours, you have to make sure your producing a healthy puppy too," Tina explains.
All the pups don't have any genetic problems and only differ in color

Alas, the labor was difficult and the pups had to be delivered by C-section, so Zola would no longer be used in the experiment to avoid risks. However, she passed on her unique genes to her daughters and in a couple of years, when they grow up, they will continue to participate in the experiment – the world needs more beautiful puppies of all colors!
