What Color is my Dog?

I get many calls , a breeder has a dog, she said it was lilac,

it looks like a chocolate dog, what colors is it?

Ok well colors of a dog are denoted by the color of the nose,

blue dog , blue nose.

  Blue dog- blue noseDSC_0452

                                                  5280 Simone

can be brindled, and brindling can be reversed,

this occurs when the tan lines are wider than the blue lines in the brindling

blue brindle – blue nose – blue base coat/ gold stripe or can be reversed  bluesable

                                                                                                                                                                             5280  Bristol litter  Brindles Chocolate and Blues/ 5280 Briley

 

 

 

 

Chocolate is a dilute!!

Chocolate dogs have chocolate-liver noses.PIC_0930

Chocolate Fawn will have a 8471300c

Chocolate nose / Choc mask and look tan or fawn otherwise

Looks like this  bb/ay   Very Red Chocolate

 

Chocolate Brindle will be Chocolate Base /DSC_1045

                                                                                                                           5280 Bristol puppy

Chocolate nose / Gold stripes/ Colors can be reversed

Point is Chocolate nose / Chocolate Dog/ you just have to figure out what else from there

Other Dilute Genes

Dilute Genes

Lilac  can only be double blue/chocolate , bb/dd ,

no way around it, it is in the genetics

Lilac dogs will always have a purple nose and pads or

Presley1

5280 Presley ( retired from 5280 )

look mauve or bluish tinted dog will have two coats of color,

either coat can show

may  can look light tan to creamy tan color.

PIC_10415280 Ranger ( retired from 5280)

 

luca

5280 Luca ( Ranger’s offspring)

 

It can also be Lilac Merle

 toad1

5280 Toad ( Grand puppy to Poppy)

or Lilac Brindle

 

If you want to see all colors possible

in the Lilac color look up Weimaraner litters

( another double blue, double chocolate dog),

this will give you a good indication of all colors that can be thrown by a double coated dog.

What is Lilac ?  Lilac is produced when the Blue gene

and the Chocolate gene are bred together,

and a puppy is produced with two coats,

it is genetically a dual carrier in one dog,

double blue, double chocolate.

This is the ideal breeder,

This dog will throw Blue,

Choc and Lilac,

as well as the basic colors in both parents

backgrounds.

 Double Blue/Double Chocolate ( Lilac )-purple/violet nose,

can look mauve, or bluish at times take lots of nose pics of this puppy for proof of the nose.

the coat color on this puppy can be very light tan, to this color, weimaraner-weimaraner-pics-7

Nose will change colors w/ lighting and be hard to photograph

can be brindled, and brindling can be reversed,

this occurs when the tan lines are wider than the blue lines in the brindling

 

Blue Fawn- Starr Dustbluesable

Blue  nose    on a Tan looking dog with blue hairs present and blue masking

There is no such thing as a SUPER DILUTE ,

it just does not exist, even if bred from two blue parents still genetically just a Blue,

can not be a Double Dilute, non-existent call the lab

yourself and ask here is the number

if will have the genetic code dd , this does not mean double dilute

Piebald ( pattern) will be recessive, ParisHeart2

                                                                                                       5280 Paris Francine

as it is recessive as a pattern in the Toy Rat Terriers,

it can however, be bred out

somewhat depending on stock used for breeding.

Solids are more desirable choices if this to be achieved.

A dog can be blue, carrying for chocolate,

or chocolate carrying for blue,

both can produce either color when bred to another

dog carrying for the same colors.

Example a blue dog bred

to a blue dog,

will not produce chocolate,

IF both dogs do not carry for chocolate.

Same with ANY other color, both dogs

have to carry.

Genetics 101 if a dog does not carry for a color,

or a pattern it will not EVER produce it, EVER.

Exception to this pattern is Merle, PIC_1133

                                                                                       5280  Piper ( retired)

merle is an incompletely dominate gene and,

can NEVER be doubled up,

or it becomes a lethal.

It only takes one copy of this gene to produce.

Merle is a altering  gene  ( modifying ) gene, and a double copy

of this gene can cause deafness or blindness on a dog.

A single copy is completely safe for any breed, and just an interesting side note

this gene also works with Great Danes

in conjunction with the Harlequin gene

another modifying gene, that also alters the coat on the dog,

one of the last known breeds

it is known to exist in,

it was known to be in the Harlequin Pinscher years ago, however

the lineages have been lost, the breed is now merle.

Read more on the Merle page.

These are just a few , if you have questions call

the same goes for brindle, merle and any patterns in dogs as well,

patterns are markings, not colors.

it looks like a chocolate dog, what colors is it?

Ok well colors of a dog are denoted by the color of the nose,

blue dog , blue nose. 

The only exception to the rule is in

Charcoal , this color will have a darker color nose,

looking black or dark blue, and dog will appear black and blue at times.

This is still a genetic blue dog, the modifying gene has made the dog appear darker.

 

 

Chocolate is not a dilute!!

Chocolate dogs have chocolate-liver noses.

Chocolate Fawn will have a

Chocolate nose / Choc mask and look tan or fawn otherwise

Chocolate Brindle will be Chocolate Base /

Chocolate nose / Gold stripes/ Colors can be reversed

High Red Chocolate/Chocolate Nose/ Chocolate Dog / Fawn

Looks like this  bb/ay   Very Red Chocolate

 

Point is Chocolate nose / Chocolate Dog/ you just have to figure out what else from there

with all the diffrent colors coming about

some will be new to a few breeders
