Hi I am new to this thread and wanted to see if anyone could help me. We just bought a new puppy, the breeder said she is a Blue Champagne Color but when we went out to register her for puppy classes everyone else that saw her asked if she was a blue fawn color. I thought the Champagne color was lighter than what our puppy is but maybe I'm wrong. Thanks!

It might be the pictures, but she doesn't look 'blue'. Her nose color indicates a dilute gene at work, but it appears to be a red dilute, not a blue dilute gene. Not a biggie, just dilute genes working on different Loci. I would just call her a Fawn.

I agree with above I don't see anything blue at all in these pics.

Never really good at guessing types for pets. But I do agree that I see nothing blue about her.

She is a blue dilute but there is nothing "blue" about that pup. Fawn bluies are fawn dogs with a blue nose and mask. Your pup is champagne in color. Champagne is a the dilute blue like your pup but unless your dog have the color blue on it you do not refer to them as blue. I know confusing isn't? It also doesn't help the person who bred your pup obviously knows nothing of the breed or color.....

This dog is a fawn bluie or a blue fawn depending on what registry
Rogue has a blue nose and a blue mask but her overall color is fawn.

Holly has some good pictures of champagne color dogs that she bred, if she sees this she can post up some examples.

Dilute genetics tend to get confusing, especially since almost everything 'dilute' is now referred to as 'blue'. Red and Liver dogs can be dilute too (though they aren't 'blue') they, technically, are Isabella, but no one says THAT, lol

Excuse me but in my opinion I believe that every living creature should experience the beauty of giving life unlike most I'm not in it for the money aspect Bambi is like one of my children who regularly goes to the vet like any child would see a doctor I've seen numerous YouTube videos on the abuse the breed received from ignorant individual who mearly see them as slot machine as an extension of my family when she is old enough I will breed and she grow old along side her son Bambi owning and animal is expensive when given the proper care . I think you should analyze the difference between An owner who genuinely loves there pet opposed to one who is reckless and neglagant towards there animal

I'm sorry, but although Bambi is a beautiful pet and a sweet one from the looks of it you really should think twice about breeding her. I've never bred a litter, though I have helped clean up the mess of those who have (even if well meaning) there are thousands of BABIES (in every color of the rainbow) in the pounds because people think their pets should have puppies. Many momma dogs do not enjoy being a mother...most do it because nature says they have. as a mother myself who has worked with bitches with litters I can tell you not one of them were gaga over the motherhood experience, like we as humans are.

You should understand the difference between a PET and a breed-worthy dog. No, not every dog should experience having a litter. Is she registered? Even purebred? Are you going to prove her worth by achieving titles in show, sport, or through work (hunting, S&R, etc.)? Are you going to have her health tested for hereditary diseases/conditions? This is expensive and NOT the same as a regular vet check. Are you financially prepared to care for up to 15 puppies? Food for her and her pups, vet checks, dewormer, vaccinations, emergency whelping costs if need be? Are you prepared to find homes for each and every pup, and write a contract stating you'll take them back at any time should the new owner give them up? If the answer to any of the above is no, you have no business breeding.

There are literally thousands of adorable puppies and and adult bully mutts in shelters, so you may think you're doing this out of love, but you're actually just contributing to the problem, and ultimately taking up homes that those adoptable dogs could have had. People like you breeding your dog on a whim is exactly why these dogs are so overpopulated and why hundreds are euthanized every day.

Don't expect a pat on the back from anyone here for breeding your dog because you want a male named Thumper.

Thanks bc your entitled to your opinion and I will take All the information into consideration i find your comments to be somewhat rude but accurate I'm a first time owner and after the statement you have made I will definitely reconsider you might want to work or your delivery approach however ! Not everyone is as understanding as I . Imagine the impact you can have if you relayed this information in a much approachable manner I'm sure if ppl loved there pets as much as I love mine and had this information available to them in not such a demeaning tone you can save many from making the same mistake I world have . Give it a try if you really want to make a difference
