Default What color is this?

I've been looking at this dog a while (can't get him of course, but I really like him). He's so unusual looking. What color would his coat be classified as?

Hmm It looks like that grayish coloring might be merle. My understanding is that, with Aussies, in that case he would be considered a merle.

You know what, when I saw that dog I thought his color reminded me of Riot's... except dilute, hence the blue color instead of the black. I have no idea what that's called, though.

I guess there can be a dilute sable but I've never heard a name for it. It's hard on my screen to tell if his nose pigment is black or blue. I've seen in paps where the sable gets diluted to red but I don't think I've ever seen blue like this guy. Some sable merles I've seen kind of get that greyish color on their coat but I've never seen one with that much.

in chihuahuas it would be a blue fawn or a blue fawn sable.

He's a blue sable. Gorgeous dog! It's a very striking color.



It seems to be not uncommon in poms:

If it were a greyhound or APBT, I'd say it was a blue fawn. Definitely not a Collie color.
