Default Rare colors?

Not looking for a breeder, but so any of you know of any breeders who have accidental rare colors pop up a lot, or can you show me one you have?(I love blues) just out of curiosity.

I'd start contacting some good breeders and find out if it happens in their lines. That way you'll get all the 'good' with a great breeder along with the puppy.

Christine has a blue from a first litter. The breeder did not know both parents carried the gene and won't be breeding the pair again because of it.

Nikon has a nephew (sister's son) that is blue and red. He was the only blue in the litter. I'm not sure if the sire has produced it before but likely being in Europe they would just be culled.
