silver/grey puppy

Hi,

Just was curious about something, my boyfriends Aunt is on a waiting list for a puppy from the breeder we got our Bogart from.
Unfortunately there were only 3 pups born, and one didn't make it. Of the two surviving pups, one is a silver/grey color. The breeder said in the 23 years he's been breeding he's never seen a pup that color. I have a pic I'll try to post later. He plans on keeping this girl Has anybody ever heard of this? His dog's are all black and tan.

Here are the pics

Re: silver/grey puppy

I think blue (like liver) is a dilution, so the dog is genetically black and tan but everywhere that would normally be black is blue instead. I believe it's autosomal recessive, so both parents must be carriers to get a blue pup.

Re: silver/grey puppy

Yep, the puppy is "blue". I really hope the breeder isn't planning on keeping it so they can BREED it later.

Re: silver/grey puppy

don't think so, think he just wants to keep her because she's so unique
