Hiya im going to get a Golden retriever puppy in a couple weeks and I've been getting weekly updates of my chosen pup.
My question is that she seems to have a couple skin folds where her muzzle is (she is 5 weeks old).
I looked up videos on 5 week old golden retrievers and they didnt seem to have any skin folds.
IS THIS NORMAL IN A GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPY?????
The woman told me the skin folds will grow out when the pup grows, but I wanted other peoples advice just incase.....

By skin folds do you mean like a sharpei puppy? and are both parents of the puppies purebred/ and have been seen with the puppies? Its not something ive seen, but it could just be extra skin for your pup

Well, not as intense as that at all. The puppies skin folds are only on the muzzle (between the eyes and tip of it's nose)
The golden retriever puppy will be KC registered, the mum and dad are both golden retrievers (have seen pictures) and I've seen the mum with pups but I don't know if KC registered means its a purebred.
They are on the darker side when it comes to golden retrievers (red) and lean more towards the field type goldens. I just wanted to know if I should be concerned about the skin folds or not

That sounds completely normal if both parents are present. Especially if its just the one puppy that has it
