    Coat of many colors

    So the APBT has many variations in color, probably almost every excluding a few.

    Inspired by GSD forum thread about variation . . . .Share other breeds with a wide range of color.

    APBT
    Black
    Black & tan
    Black & tan w/ brindle points
    Brindle which can come in a variety of colors and density Black, Gray, Brown, Red, Tan, Sable/smut, Buckskin, Fawn, Seal w/ under lying brindle, ect
    Brown
    Buckskin
    Fawn
    Liver
    Red
    Sable/smut or dirty buckskin
    Seal
    Tan

    "red nose"
    Chocolate
    Chocolate & tan w/ brindle points
    Chocolate, Red, Buckskin, Tan, Red smut or Fawn brindle
    Buckskin
    Fawn
    Liver
    Red
    Red smut
    Tan

    "blue nose"
    Blue
    Blue & tan
    Blue & tan w/ brindle points
    Blue brindle which can consist of fawn, buckskin, ect base coat and Blue smut brindle
    Blue buckskin
    Blue fawn
    Blue seal
    Blue smut
    Blue tan

    Dogs w/ both red(liver)/blue(dilute)nose genes
    Lilac
    Lilac & tan
    Lilac & tan w/ brindle points
    Lilac brindle
    Lilac smut

    Champagne
    Champagne brindle

    Several colors can vary in shade from light to dark

    Additionally dogs can have white markings, mostly white w/ patches or be solid white.

    Black mask (or respective blue, lilac or chocolate)

    In a previous thread I made the color markings I couldnt figure out might be urajiro (is that what it was). It could be same genes or just look the same.

    There is also the silvering around the muzzles in some dogs.

    There are really tons of color and pattern variations

    LOL I was just going to say this. I don't think there's an "unacceptable" color in the breed....

    Re: Coat of many colors

    There are lots of different recognized (I don't mean recognized by the show ring - just known) coat colors as well as genetic mutations and unusual coat patterns caused by recessive genes. They are quite unusual and very attractive, nonetheless:




    This might be an result of Vitiligo in dogs

    All these different coat colors can be born in litters even from champion blood line pure bred dogs and can appear in every breed (even with blue eyes). Quite interesting. I love genetics!

    But, I know that the breed I have, the borzoi, can come in almost any color imaginable, except for merles. There is no disqualification for any coat color and or combinations.
    Just to name a few:

    All white
    white with spots (of any color - brown, red, blue, brindle, etc)
    Tri colored (commonly black, white, and tan)
    Self colored and self colored with points (solid colored points, brindle)
    Any self color or white with any colored spots (tan, brown, black with brindle points and or black masks)
    The list can go on and on and on!!! It's amazing.
    Also, there are no rules for markings. Borzoi can have any markings in any pattern/position on their body.
    For example: My borzoi has an all white left side, but a totally splotched and spotted right side (blue and tan spots)

    Re: Coat of many colors

    WHAT is up with that Rottie?? WOW! We had a black lab come into the clinic a few weeks ago and I wanted to take a picture of him (he was quite ill though, so I didn't want to be rude), his head was mostly white.. not quite as extreme as that Rott pic you posted, but similar. It was bizzare!

    I think Chihuahuas can come in nearly every colour..

    Re: Coat of many colors

    I think the white spots on the dogs look friggin' awesome! The rott has the most extreme case of it, but it's often less so then that:




    Seems like it appears in black and tan coated dogs more so than other coat colors.

    Wow that Rottweiler! And the first one is... a Labrador? The second one is a GSD with 'panda' coloring, I've seen those before (on the internet, not IRL unfortunately). I'm still amazed by that Rottweiler.

    My breed only comes in white, so not much to add there. Only differences in color is eye color (light brown to dark brown/black) and nose color (black or liver colored, though black is preferred).

    Yes, the first one is a labrador. It's a somatic mutation:



    Here are some more panda G.sheps:


    Pretty cool!

    There is a "Panda" shepherd breeder that lives about 2 hours away from me. I am IN LOVE with their dogs, and one day when I'm rolling in the dough I DEFINITELY want to get one. I <3 GSD's.

    Insanely cool.. the Dobe looks like he knocked over a paint can!

    Are there health issues, or anything, that is linked to these colour mutations?

    My favorite is Stella on this page: http://www.gis.net/~shepdog/BC_Museu...lorTicked.html

    I saw her run at a USBCHA trial a few years ago.

    I think if it exists, Dachshunds come in it.

    Re: Coat of many colors

    Aussie are only allowed to be registered if they are Black or Liver And they are allowed to have the genetic modifiers of merle, and have tan points, and irish white. Those genetic combinations are the only things ALLOWED in the breed (doesn't mean people don't lie about the color of their dog and register it as a different color). The E masking gene is also allowed tho it is not mentioned in any way in the standard.


    Aussies have been born as (not including the above)
    Sable (like a GSD sable)
    Saddle back black and tan
    Dilute Black
    Dilute Liver
    ee Yellow
    Pie bald (this is probably the most common "issue" that pops up in normally bred litters)
    Brindle
    Harlequin (a modification of merle)

    Re: Coat of many colors

    No, none of them are weims.

    Here is what they are in order

    Greater Swiss Mt. Dog
    Rhodesian Ridgeback
    Schipperke
    Great Dane
    Labrador Retriever
    Dogue De Bordeaux
    Poodle

    I also like these

    Not a off-colored dog, just like it:


    Not a Samoyed:





    Not a DQ, just very undesirable


    And these are

    Dunker
    Keeshond
    Boston Terrier
    Bulldog
