Color Explanation of Red Nose Dogs.
« on: December 16, 2015, 09:53:27 AM »
Recently again I was reminded of a reference to a color.
 Which I think need to be explained.

 There is no such thing for red nose dogs as "Fawn or Buckskin"!

Fawn-light brown, color of a young deer, hence the reference name.
Buckskin-beige, color of male deer, again hence the name.

 Light red & yellow colored dogs are referred to as light red.

Here is the difference:

 Light Red & Yellow colored dogs compared to Fawn & Buckskin dogs;

 When a dog is Fawn or Buckskin color, whether they are indoor or outdoor and through out their life, young or old will stay the same shade of color.
 This color is common on black nose dogs.

 Light Red or Yellow colored dogs;

 If the dog is kept indoor it will darken in color and if kept outdoor, in the sun, it will lighten. When they are younger they will be darker and as they grow older they will lighten.

 So far on either forum of this billboard, there has not yet been a dog posted of light red, yellow, buckskin or fawn...
