I have a white golden retriever, and she is absolutely registered with the AKC. Why would you state otherwise?


The American Kennel Club only allows registration for goldens under the following standard colors: dark golden (registration code 080), golden (registration code 093), and light golden (registration code 119). There is no white golden option as it's not a color currently accepted by the AKC standard. If you registered a white, you most likely had to register under light golden and had the pup's parents registered with the AKC. Technically, you can "register" a white this way, but it's not accurate.
