The Pygmy Spitz will undoubtedly become a family favourite. But in order for a puppy to be shown, the coat colour of the fluffy “lump” must meet the standards set by the Canine Federation. Experienced breeders know how to determine the colour in advance, as its final depth is formed after the first seasonal moult. At LUXPOM you can buy puppies based on their colour and not worry about the fluffy “lump” changing colour.
General standards and recognised colours
According to the standards of the Kennel Club, the acceptable coat colours vary according to the type of breed. The main colours available for the Pomeranian Spitz are black, white, chocolate, wolfsbane or red. But there are a number of other shades that are less common among the furry “bears”. As a result, the price of rare coloured puppies is higher than that of the main colours. But if you’re looking to buy a “ball of joy” for your family, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a brown or a white puppy – you’re buying a loyal little friend who will bring you lots of joy and pleasure.
The black colour is characterised by the fact that it is completely varnished without any spots. The coat of small puppies is usually brown or dark grey. As they grow older, the black lacquer may change colour or be “diluted” with grey, but these changes do not constitute a mating.
A fine white lump is a uniform colour with no other impurities. To achieve a snowy colour, a puppy’s pedigree must consist of “pure” relatives. Any variations in colour contribute to the cream colour.
The most common colour is golden red. Small fluffy puppies may have a pale or grey tinge as babies, which will develop in depth as they grow older. According to the standard, an even distribution of colour is not a prerequisite for high show scores.
The sable dwarf spitz is covered with a silvery coat. The intensity and depth of the colour varies from one part of the body to another. Other colours also belong to this group:
All species are characterised by zonal colouration. Muzzle and ears are dark, shoulders and head are pale, tail is black, “trousers” are silver or grey.
Other colours and patches
In addition to the basic colours, Elite Bears may have other rare coat colours. The Chocolate Spitz is a brown colour evenly distributed over the fluffy body. The Tiger Spitz is characterised by alternating black and red stripes. The Marbled Spitz is a unique and rare colour. Black, red or grey markings are distributed over the body. And the patches on the white background of the coat are a pati colour.
Some colours are accepted by American standards, but are not listed as purebred by the International Kennel Club. These are: brown-chocolate spitz, blue, merle and tiger.
The main faults are white patches on the coat of all representatives except the “snow” puppies. Small spots on the chest and paws, light-coloured nasal lobes in winter, which are characteristic of light-coloured fluffy puppies, do not lead to disqualification. If you have decided to buy a marbled or other coloured Spitz puppy for show or breeding, trust a reliable breeder.
