I recently purchased a pup through a reputable breeder who has had puppies in the past born with the green eyes and the light nose/muzzle. It isn't common, but it does happen in the pure-bred.
Here is an interesting article regarding 'Dudley pigmentation'...it is a genetic trait, and the article adequately explains that trait with regards to the colouring.
(Disclaimer: this is not advertising the breeder who supplied the information, nor did I purchase from the breeder).

Yes this is a dudley lab. Which means one of the parents was a chocolate. There is nothing wrong with the dog and no mutation. It is actually becoming more common. Dudley means their nose and around the eyes are the pink color and tend to have lighter color fur. So that is still a purebred lab, gorgeous one at that. Most dogs when they are pups will have green eyes but change when they get older. But when they have a chocolate gene in their line they can tend to have green/light hazel eyes. I have had two Purebred Chocolate Labs both had greens eyes, just gorgeous.

i have seen labs over the years with the lighter eyes.... but had no idea that there was a name for the coloration.... where did "dudley" come from??

and my bailey definitely had green / gold eyes until she was about a year or so old...... now the more typical doggie-brown......

The "dudley nose" is considered a fault because true pink-pigmented noses can sunburn.

So it's alright as long as you aren't breeding and the breeder didn't do this on purpose and isn't breeding for color.

Dudleys are getting more common because they are becoming more popular (since they're "rare" *eyeroll*) and more backyard breeders are creating them intentionally.

Calypso my chocolate lab has light eyes. They were greener when she was young but now are more of an amber color.

I call her my demon-in-a-dog-suit. Couldn't manage to get her picture here but you can see her in my album if curious.

Default Green Eyes today

This is an updated picture of my beautiful lab taken today, 10 months after the original post. He doesn't always stare, only when there is a camera around.
