    Labs and Golden are very simliar. Maybe it's a Lab? Labs have short coat. If your dog is a rescue, it could also be that it's coat was shaved before you got it and is still in the process of growing back.

    Also, dogs with full coats often don't come in to their adult coat for a while. She could still be in her puppy coat. Or you could just be mistaken and she's a yellow lab.

    How short do you mean? My Golden has a shorter, thinner coat than most other Golden retrievers. She's still A Golden, but her coat is shorter & thinner. I'm actually quite happy about it because she rarely sheds.

    must be a lab...the only difference is the length of fur
