Default Boerboel colours

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:

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...
Puppies are born black and tan and are normally darker in body color, showing an intermingling of black hair in the tan until they are matured. Color of hair on body and richness of tan on head and legs are of prime importance in adult dogs, to which the following color requirements apply: Blue: Is a dark steel-blue, not a silver-blue and not mingled with fawn, bronzy or black hairs. Tan: All tan hair is darker at the roots than in the middle, shading to still lighter tan at the tips. There should be no sooty or black hair intermingled with any of the tan.

Color on Body
The blue extends over the body from back of neck to root of tail. Hair on tail is a darker blue, especially at end of tail.

A rich golden tan, deeper in color at sides of head, at ear roots and on the muzzle, with ears a deep rich tan. Tan color should not extend down on back of neck.
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.

Australian Working Kelpie

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.
