    My favourite colour for a Border Collie is a nicely patterned blue merle.

    Though the colour of my favourite dog is blonde/white :cool:

    I prefer dark colors whenever possible, preferably all one shade.

    If it can't be all a dark color, I prefer dark dogs with either dark markings (like a black Rottie with dark brown points *swoon*) or minimal flashy white (like a pinto colored Akita *swoon*).

    The exception to this is dogs that come in red merle. I love me some red merles.

    Oh. And my favorite dog is a certain brown dog. ;)

    I don't really know if I have a favourite anymore. I am more attracted to a certain type of dog or breeds vs. colours. But I like contrasty dogs and I prefer dark eyes. I like dark, rich colours. Tri colours and bi colours are nice though. Some brindles. Certain merle patterns. My favourite colours in my favourite breeds are...

    Aussies: Black tri and dark red tri. Darker merbutifjulie either colour but preferably no bi eyes or blue eyes.
    Tollers: Darker orange and not really particular about markings, but prefer a small snip of white on the face and four white paws. I kind of want a black nosed toller next whenever next toller happens.
    Koolies: Dark solid red/red bi, dark red Merle, black tan/black bi/black tri.

    Depends on the dog. I like rich, mostly solid colors. Reds, blacks. Tris. Certain merles, so long as there's white with tan/copper trim. Some brindles. Fawns with dark masks.
    My favorite dog is a red sable. ;)

    I don't have a favourite in most breeds, Bouviers is one of the few, I LOVE fawn, but if I ever get one colour will be the last thing on the list :)

    Poodles, I love the way Partis look, I so which they were accepted in the show ring.

    One more, Domino and Black and Tan on Afghans..to die for.

    ESS-tricolor. I always used to be a traditional Irish patterned black/white/tan girl. But those richly colored English marked liver/white/tan dogs get me now.

    Tollers-I prefer a flesh colored nose with a rich red (not buff).

    Aussies-dark merle with no tan.

    English Shepherds-sable

    Belgians Tervs/Mals/Laekens-full DARK black mask with black shading on the body.

    I like Merle! It's like playing the cloud game on your dog they are so unique and easy to photograph since he's a light Merle

    I am a big fan of black and tan or brindle (brindle with or without white). I have others I like, but those are probably my favorite.

    My favorite color for a dog is silver/grey ...
    however, my "favorite dog's color" is black.
