You've been holding out on us! :nono: She is stunning.
thank you,,she is out of an imported slovakian narcotics dog and male east german/czech sar who has so many other titles I can't remember half..Shes pretty high energy, smart as a whip, but as with czech dogs, can be rather defensive...She's been alot of fun to work and play with ))
APBT also cannot be white albinism is not standard in any breed right?
Boerboels come in a few colours; some not so accepted by the various registries.
They can be masked or no-mask; but because black pigment "everywhere" is so important; the masking helps with the "pigment" look.
Dora is considered light yellow with black mask
Her mom is red.
This is Egoli Majoor - lovely dark brindle -- good quality dark brindles that look like Boerboels and not boxers are hard to come by; Majoor was nice.
Boerboels also come in piebald; not a popular colour with the registries (due to concern with lack of pigment) but popular with some breeders due to it's historic link and popular with some puppy buyers
Black in boerboels is a controversial colour with it just recently being allowed back in the registry; I haven't seen too many who are what I consider exceptional in type; but since the bloodlines tend to be older - farm type dogs; could just be a not-familiar look
Blue in Boerboels is frowned upon but some of them are very hard to tell. Again; the lightening of the pigment is an issue.
Brown is also found; as well a dark overlay is very popular; but not seen quite as much.
Beagles come in a huge array of colors. Tri are the most common, most recognized. But any typical 'hound color' is acceptable. A beagle of color (tri type) is not required to have a black saddle. They also come in red/white, lemon (very pale yellow/orange type color) there can be a fine line between a light red and a dark lemon. There are also blue/tan/white:
Any true hound color.

*sigh* sammy's only come in white...or biscuit..or white and biscuit. Ozzie has a llittle biscuit on the tip of one ear. My aussie is a blue merle. he's--my new favorite word--piebald!
Wow, the only boerboels I've seen were the tan or red ones with the black mask. I had no idea that they came in more colors. Very interesting.
Manchester Terriers have pretty much no variation in color. They are just classic black and tan--no dilute colors at all. The standard does get pretty specific about the description of the tan markings --but the distinguishing feature for the Manchesters is a marking I believe is called thumbprints on the front of the front legs. These are black sooty marks that vary in size and darkness from one dog to the next --but they have to be there to be in standard. Its also one good way to disntinguish a Manchester from a min pin. If you look at Zippy's front leg in the pic you can see a light thumprint marking.
Poodles come in lots of colors.
Yorkies have a very specific standard.
They not only have to be steel blue and tan but the colors must fall in the right places...
You dont see a lot of yorkies that fit the standard... many have turned a silver color, and there are some that are almost all dark tan (almost looks red).
Many people call the yorkie black and brown dogs... however, it is a dark blue if you look close enough.

1. Which color(s) can be found in your breed?
black, red, fawn (blue) - all can be with or without tan points and cream.
they can also have white markings and still be purebred.
Black and Tan
Red and Tan (My favourite)
Fawn and Tan (My other favouritem - plus I just love the look of this dog)
You also used to see saddle'd kelpies or tan masked kelpies but they don't seem to show up as much anymore. I found a couple of pictures ages ago but can't track them down now.
2. Which colors/markings are considered unacceptable?
I would say none, I'm sure the ANKC has some unnaceptable colours but I have no interest in ANKC Kelpies.
