Help Me Determine My Dog's Color!
 
Meet Dakota ^^ She is a year and a half old dog.

Her mom was anatlolian shepherd/ maremma X.
Her dad is a mystery.

Also, if anyone has any idea for breeds she could be, feel free to tell me!

And her color- I don't know what it is!

Dakota is adorable :lovestruck:
Colour I would say White/black/cream
The wide white collar of fur he has looks very much like a Collie's
:2cents:

Hmmm I see a few possible breeds in that face and body (husky, collie)....so i say heinz 57 :D
Super-cute whatever she is made of :)

I think in some breeds she'd be simply a tri-colour. White, black (with shadings) and a bit of brown. When you have a mix and don't know the components it's hard to say. Breeds call their colours, which may appear to be the same, different names. For instance Labs can be yellow but Golden Retrievers are called golden and they can be very much the same colour.

Pretty girl. Looks like she is happy to have her photo taken. :)

Maybe part border collie I thinking the nose would be pointier if is was a collie like Lassie . It is a beauitful dog. I loves the dog fur.

She's adorable! I agree that the white collar looks Collie, but she definitely looks like she has some northern breed in her (Siberian Husky, Malamute possible?). If so, her color would be sable (some call it wolf sable. A combination of black/grey/white with brown highlights and undercoat)Either way, she's gorgeous :lovestruck: :cloud9:

The OP knows the breeds of the mother of her dog, the mother's breed combination would account for the more blunt/shorter nose, she's just looking for what the dad could possibly be :dog:

Dakota looks very much like an [URL="http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/anatolianshepherd.htm"]Anatolian Shepherd[/URL] that's where the northern breed looks come in, the other breed of the mom the [URL="http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/maremmasheepdog.htm"]Maremma Sheepdog[/URL] is not as evident.

Dad likely provided the wide white collar, the longer fur, feathering of the fur on the legs & tail as well as come of the colouring

I see a little grey and some tan or orange around the dog face and on his hind leg. I wonder how you would describe the dog color for ID purposes if the OP wanted put it on microchip .

[QUOTE=Rgeurts;1053468]Tri-color :)[/QUOTE]

Yeah, that would work.

Koteburo February 6th, 2013 04:11 PM

Looks white, black, black speckled and cream to me :p
She's so beautiful. I loved the pics! She looks so innocent and happy :lovestruck:

mittens1997 February 6th, 2013 06:57 PM

Oh, this might help in determining the breed!

This is Dakota's mom: [IMG]http://i1082.photobucket.com/albums/j367/mittens1997/8934baa_20_zps21414a30.jpg[/IMG]

This is Dakota (when she was like a month or two old) [IMG]http://i1082.photobucket.com/albums/j367/mittens1997/3007i81_20-1_zps99ef3e2a.jpg[/IMG]

The rest are her siblings:

Definite
 
Whooops she/he anyway shepherd mix black, white and brown the big part about your dog is daddy is no longer a mystery border collie look at the spots on snout and the fur is that of a border collie and if this dog is hyper even at age 4 then Border Collie a frisbie dog. Take a look around for anymore small black spots sometimes these spots could mean your wild child may be a blue healer too:grouphug:
