These dogs are highly intelligent and active, and they tend to retain their puppy-like behaviors even well into adulthood.
Can Flat-Coated Retrievers be yellow? Flatcoats come in two recognised colours: black and liver (thankfully not yet renamed as chocolate). However, yellow flatcoats are by no means rare, a reminder of the fact that, historically, all the retriever breeds have been interbred.
