I forgot to add... paps can also be ticked or not ticked. I think I've got them all now.

JRTs must be over 51% white.

They can be black and white, tan and white and tri. They come in sable and white but that usually gets registered as tan and white (Dekka is sable, as are all the Dekklets)

Ticking is just fine. Brindle markings are not. Dilutes are not favoured. Nose leather is to be black.

This constant breeding of blues to blues and the dilution effect happening is not just creating a whole host of "new" coat colors, but a whole host of new dogs with new issues that are not positive ones for our breed.
I had no idea. Thanks for letting me know. I just thought it was very pretty.

That is a shame. I dont come across too many APBTs that are that color. More often than not, I come across blue, which I dont care for. Probably because most of them are too bulky and over sized.

Red nose pitties are usually a lot better looking. Better put together.

Yorkies are supposed to be Blue and tan.. Alot are black for somereason. Most yorkies you see are BYB or puppymill bred. Therefore most are black and are unaware of their true color..

And the german shepherd comes in a variety or colors. Blues,Blan tan, Liver, White. Etc etc.

German Shepherds can come in a few colors, I've been studying genetics recently

Black & Tan
Panda colored (supposedly a spontaneous mutation by UC Davis, it wasn't introduced by adding in another breed)
Sable (which can go with any of the colors mentioned above)

The white, liver, and blue are considered a disqualifying fault by the AKC, their standard doesn't encompass the "panda" coloration as far as I've seen. There was some debate years ago (I think int he late 60's early 70's) over a blue CH titled dog...they since did away with it being a showable color. All colors are registerable.

There's a bigger variance in coat type and pattern though.

A saddle back (what most people can pick out right away as being a GSD)

Blanket Black and Tan

Bi-color (like Kenya)

Beagles come in all acceptable hound colors, which makes me wonder if they can be brindle or merle, since there are hounds in these colors. I met a brindle one once, which looked purebred, but who knows.
I had no idea that the ones without black were not proper. I've been wondering about that. Madisons great grandad (also our neighbor) breeds these dogs for hunting. And I think he shows too. He calls the ones with no black "lemon".

Some of his lemons...

This dog is almost completely white...

Lemon puppy.

Shelties are pretty easy. You basically have three coat colours: sable, bi-black, and tri.
The sable is the brown/tan colour. There's a range of names that people have created to try and describe the different levels of sable, like golden sable (more yellow-y), red sable (like Auggie's coat is pretty reddish), and shaded sable (lots of black) but sable is pretty much sable.
A bi-black is just black and white, no brown.
The tri is black, white, and brown.

On all of these you can have the merling which gives you a sable merle, bi-blue, and blue merle respectively.

The colour-headed white is a dog that is so heavily white factored they basically have no colouring anywhere but on their head.
And then of course there's the double merle in shelties as well.

GSPs come in both liver and black, but black is a DQ in the show ring.

Only in AKC. Black GSPs can be shown in the conformation ring in UKC.

Labs come in three colors- black, yellow and chocolate. From the LRC's website:
The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable. White hairs from aging or scarring are not to be misinterpreted as brindling. Black - Blacks are all black. A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow - Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog. Chocolate - Chocolates can vary in shade from light to dark chocolate. Chocolate with brindle or tan markings is a disqualification.
