A Red Fox Labrador costs between $1,000 to $1,500.
This is quite expensive not only for Labradors that go for $500 to $1,200 but also for dogs in general. However, there are many factors that explain and justify this price tag. Here are a few.
Red Fox Labradors are relatively rare
Red Fox Labradors are relatively rare. To be fair, they are far from being the rarest of Labrador Retriever variations. However, you are more likely to find other variations like the Black or Yellow Labrador Retrievers.
Their rarity results in low supply compared to the high demand for these incredibly desirable pooches. As a result, many breeders and individual sellers set high price tags.
Red Fox Labradors are unpredictable to breed
It is very tricky and difficult to breed Red Fox Labrador Retrievers. As already stated, they are a variation of Yellow Labradors which are themselves a result of expression of a recessive gene.
This means that you need the right combination of genes from Labrador parents to get your desired Yellow Labrador trait which is the same case with the Red Fox variation. To make matters more complicated, the Red Fox Labrador is just one of the many often unpredictable variations of the Yellow Lab.
This means that without two Red Fox Labradors to breed, breeders will not enjoy a higher success rate of getting the right color variation of Labs. This complication makes breeding such Labs extremely difficulty and expensive to succeed.
They are awesome family dogs
All the trouble breeders go through and the price you have to pay for Red Fox Labrador Retrievers is all made worth it by how amazing these dogs are as companions and family pets. We shall take a loot at some of the personality traits that make this dog ideal for family settings.
