    Default Can you help identify my new puppy's coloring?

    Hello Everyone!
    I am new here to Pug Village and I was hoping that you could help me identify my new pug puppy's coloring. I thought she was going to be a traditional fawn pug but it seems that her coloring just isn't that. I assume she will continue to get lighter, but not to where I was thinking.. I find her absolutely beautiful but want to know for my own and registration purposes. I got CKC registration papers from the breeder, would this help me identify the coloring? After doing some research I am wondering is she a smutty pug or maybe a stone fawn?? she still has distinct markings on her face, ears, and the trace line on her back bone.. but there are a lot of darker hairs mixed in as well.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I would say a silver fawn
    the mom or dad would have been fawn
    and the mom or dad would have been black
    that is my guess
    she is cute cute
    A pugs world is full of play and sleep and of course good food.........

    She is an adorable little smutty fawn. She may lose some of the smuttiness as she matures.

    Officially she would just be called a fawn, but the dark hairs interspersed heavily in areas is termed "smuttiness", like they were rubbed with soot.

    Take care,
    Lisa

    Hi Lisa, Thank you for getting back to me - I really appreciate it. Seems I got had a bit, breeders actually said both parents were pure fawn. So she can still be registered with the CKC? What do you think happened here. I love her and find her to be extremely beautiful but want to know they she wont be "looked down upon"

    Continental Kennel Club will register almost anything.... so don't worry about that. It is not like the AKC...tho they have begun to be money hungry too!


    Smutty happens sometimes...It's not acceptable to show...but doesn't matter as a pet! Happens in the best breedings!

    I find the whole "looked down upon" to be so ridiculous. All pugs are beautiful--all animals are beautiful! Beatrice has ears too light, nails too white and her mask is not very large. Her legs are also too long. But people who dont know the "standards" of the breed are always telling me what a beautiful dog she is. So silly, all of it. What is really sad is that some breeders will euthanize animals that are not "perfection". I heard of it far too often in the rabbit breeding world, and am sure it goes on in the dog world too. Your pug is gorgeous and cute, and anyone who "looks down" on her is a dog snob.

    Both parents could very well be normal fawns, it is not an indicator that one of her parents is a black.

    She is not a show/breeding dog, but she will make a wonderful companion and she could be shown in agility, obedience or other non-conformation events if that interests you.

    Take care,
    Lisa

    I agree with Lisa. First of all, she is too young for you to know what her colour will look like. One of the top breeders in Scandinavia usually has very dark puppies. They become very light as they mature and they win shows right left and center. So, she may become light still.

    Second of all, mixing black with fawn is not the cause of sootiness, from what I've been taught about dog genetics. Also, there is nothing wrong with mixing black and fawn (if it should turn out she has black somewhere back in her pedigree). It's done all the time by serious and knowledgable breeders. Our little black girl has a fawn daddy and a black mommy and she is show quality.

    Thirdly, if you're not planning to show or breed her, none of it matters. She is a gorgeous little girl
