I just bought a min pin puppy that is 14 weeks old. He is my first min pin to own. He is solid dark red all over, but his nose and toe nails are also red, and his eyes are an amber color red as well. He is registered CKC. Now, I have been researching colors of the min pin online, and I can't seem to find this color combination. Can anyone help me out? Is it it possible I don't have a pure bred min pin? I am just curious. I love him so much, it doesn't matter if he isn't up "to standard", but I just wanted to know. :)

Here is a quote from the AKC website regarding min pin colors :
Solid clear red. Stag red (red with intermingling of black hairs). Black with sharply defined rust-red markings on cheeks, lips, lower jaw, throat, twin spots above eyes and chest, lower half of forelegs, inside of hind legs and vent region, lower portion of hocks and feet. Black pencil stripes on toes. Chocolate with rust-red markings the same as specified for blacks, except brown pencil stripes on toes. In the solid red and stag red a rich vibrant medium to dark shade is preferred. Disqualifications -Any color other than listed. Thumb mark (patch of black hair surrounded by rust on the front of the foreleg between the foot and the wrist; on chocolates, the patch is chocolate hair). White on any part of dog which exceeds one-half inch in its longest dimension.
