I've had my dog now for almost 4 months, and loving her...she's such a sweetheart. Now i'm fostering her, and she will be a breeder dog, she's not fixed. She's 3 yrs old, and already set in her ways on certain things, but she's a good dog, and loves her cuddling, and belly rubs. Thought I would join the dogforums.com site to perhaps sometimes get some advice on raising our dogs, and read other's opinions. Here are a few pics i have of my LuLuBelle ;)

I thought she looked like a Schnauzer, but I didn't know they came in white.

Fostering? I don't think I could ever give her up! She seems perfect! (And it sounds like you're quite attached to her)

they don't (or aren't supposed to)....AKC standard for colour:

Color
The recognized colors are salt and pepper, black and silver and solid black. All colors have uniform skin pigmentation, i.e. no white or pink skin patches shall appear anywhere on the dog.

Salt and Pepper - The typical salt and pepper color of the topcoat results from the combination of black and white banded hairs and solid black and white unbanded hairs, with the banded hairs predominating. Acceptable are all shades of salt and pepper, from light to dark mixtures with tan shadings permissible in the banded or unbanded hair of the topcoat. In salt and pepper dogs, the salt and pepper mixture fades out to light gray or silver white in the eyebrows, whiskers, cheeks, under throat, inside ears, across chest, under tail, leg furnishings, and inside hind legs. It may or may not also fade out on the underbody. However, if so, the lighter underbody hair is not to rise higher on the sides of the body than the front elbows.

Black and Silver - The black and silver generally follows the same pattern as the salt and pepper. The entire salt and pepper section must be black. The black color in the topcoat of the black and silver is a true rich color with black undercoat. The stripped portion is free from any fading or brown tinge and the underbody should be dark.

Black - Black is the only solid color allowed. Ideally, the black color in the topcoat is a true rich glossy solid color with the undercoat being less intense, a soft matting shade of black. This is natural and should not be penalized in any way. The stripped portion is free from any fading or brown tinge. The scissored and clippered areas have lighter shades of black. A small white spot on the chest is permitted, as is an occasional single white hair elsewhere on the body.

Disqualifications - Color solid white or white striping, patching, or spotting on the colored areas of the dog, except for the small white spot permitted on the chest of the black.

The body coat color in salt and pepper and black and silver dogs fades out to light gray or silver white under the throat and across the chest. Between them there exists a natural body coat color. Any irregular or connecting blaze or white mark in this section is considered a white patch on the body, which is also a disqualification.

that's why i asked if she were white....w/ using her for breeding....actually, even the silver is not acceptable, tho i have seen them that colour....i guess she could be a real light salt/pepper but i still wouldn't want to use her....
