Talking What would you choose?

If you could own a dog who had a fault with its coat color or length (assuming you rescued), what would you choose? Example... blue merle pitbull, red rottweiler, long coated rott, white pug, white GSD, ect.

I would choose a white doberman. I think they are beautifull, but would never buy one from a breeder.

Merle in pitbulls is what happens when you mix in catahoula (sp?) blood. People do that to get the color and blue eyes.

You can make it up too.

Not always, sometimes the Catahoula is added to create a better catch dog.

Also, as far as I know long-haired rotts are not disqualified in the UKC ring...Anyways that is what I would take though because they are a throwback of a very very rare but super awesome breed that went into breeds that went into creating the Rottie which I am absolutely in love with!

I really want a merle Doberman.. Or a "silver" lab (irresponsible breeders crossed labs with weims, but lied on the dogs' pedigrees.. so they're akc registered). Possible a red sable GSD--I saw pictures of one on a website, and he is so striking that I'm painting a model after him. These are just for the colors though, hehe!

A longhaired white GSD.
A blue merle Rottweiler.
A solid white blue-eyed collie.
A reverse colored Dalmatian.

(Of course I know they wouldn't exist within the breed and I would never encourage the breeding/crossing to make the colors)

Please note that white is only an off-color in the GSD if you think the AKC is the oracle of dog breeding. The UKC recognizes white as a perfectly acceptable color. I just checked their official breed standard.
