Coloring of the coat.

by Chaz

My GP is erg uniquely colored he has the badger face, and also red markings(well freckles) that you can see. You can see them better during the summer when he sheds. During the winter you for see as many. What exactly would his coloring be considered? Never seen one like this and can't find a picture of any either. And his markings DO NOT exceed over 1/3 of his body,

You haven't sent a full photo of him that may help to determine the rest of his colouring and the look of him. It looks like he also has colouring on his lower chest.

I would be tempted to say he is not full Pyr only because I have not seen such solid colouring on ears before nor colouring on the chest. The colouring usually fades as time goes on.

It would still be badger markings, however.

Does he have double dews?

A pyre of a different color?
by: Ed A from NJ

I noticed his lips are not all black which is unusual for a GP. The hair colors are very dark so I don't think he is pygment challanged so the lack of color in his lips is a head scratcher. While his general head and face structure is very Pyre his ears seam a little off, size and placement wise. It is very hard to tell from just one picture. But what I can tell from one picture is he is a beautiful baby anybody would be proud to own. I hope you will post more pictures along with anything you find out. I would wish you good luck but since you already had good luck finding such a beauty I will wish you continued luck with him!

Hi Chaz,
Yup we could use a little more info and a few more pictures. Answered your thread today on the Great Pyr forum.

Yes he does have the double dew claws. His eyes are fully outlined in black. And his lips are fully black as well. It just doesn't look like it because it goes pink quickly (right above the black). Also the roof of his mouth is fully black!
