Bi Color or Black Blanket?

Hey everyone! Hope you all have had a wonderful holiday and will have a Happy New Year I was wanting to get everyones opinion on if you think Brody is a Bi Color or Black Blanket? I've seen where people say Bi Colors have the tar heels, which he doesnt have, but he does have some characterisitics of a Bi Color...the mostly black face, etc. Or if he could be considered a black blanket? He looks like an in betweener to me! He's 7 months old as of a couple days ago and I know his coat could change. Either way I love him the way he is and love his markings

Yes, a very beautiful blanket back! He has too much white/tan on his butt flooffies, and on his belly. And as you mentioned no tar-heels, and also, in the picture where you are holding him, I do not see any pencil toes. The Tar-heels and pencil toes are part and parcel of being a bi-colour, without it, you just have a very dark (melanistic) black and tan.

I do love his dark face though! Very handsome!

Definitely a blanket. Notice the three different colors? Can't be "bi" with three colors.

No tarheels from what I can see, also black isn't completely under the belly.
I'd say Melanistic Black and Tan, not a bi color.

My dog (6 months) has the same type of markings. I love it. Hoping it doesn't fade much more.
