Default A calico dog?

Never knew dogs could be colored like this, but it sure seems to be a calico. Genetically, what do you figure? Some sort of merle? What a beauty.

WOW what a cool looking dog. I did forward this to my all breed rescue, but I don't know if she has any contacts near there.

That color is really eye-catching and awesome, isn't it? I sure hope his personality is as fantastic as his color. Too bad he's not close by! I still wonder what his color is- some sort of tricolor merle? So unusual!

Stunning, I love the pattern, so anyone have any idea what kind of dog he is? All i can think of is a calico cat mixed with a dog hehe

My best guess? Aussie x catahoula? Houlas tend to have really wild patterns and colors.

May be Catahoula something. But either way, doesn't look like he could decide if he was going to be a blue or a red merle. I must say, its an incredible color.

I can't tell if the dog is actually any colors other than black and dirty or yellowing white?

These are closer to what I think of when I think calico:

Fawnequin

Tri-color

Red Merle

Liver Merle

Catahoula

Tri-color Dalmatian

Love the tri dali and the "fawnequin!" To me, the original dog looks black, white, and tan (the tan is more evident on its sides and back).
