Default Extremely rare color!

I am so glad I have found this forum and have begun to educate myself but wish more people out there would do so. I have to admit to be one of those that will look occasionally at Petfinder and/or craigslist dogs. Today I saw the heading Extremely rare color. What was this unique and unusual color? Why a rare white CHOCOLATE poodle. "she is creme on the outsite, but has the chocolate nose, gums,caramel eyes, eye rims, and nails" Good grief.

Come to find out she not only has a rare white chocolate poodle, but a poodleXbichon cross that she has bred to the white chocolate poodle. BTW the poodleXbichon she called a rainbow dog because he was born red/white, went to "Tan" and is now changing to chocolate(ad's words not mine).

I feel sorry for people that think they are getting something "special" but really just spend lots of money on a mutt.

Oh, good grief. If it's a rescue organization trying to rehome a dog, I'm a little more sympathetic about those sort of shenanigans, but still...

When I worked at a grooming salon, we had a "white chocolate" spoo as a regular customer. Okay, okay, he was a creme without good pigment, but I have to admit, he was a striking dog, with the brown nose and hazel eyes, and his owners kept him in a modified show-puppy-cut, with the banded topknot, long all over, so he looked like he was wearing pajamas. One of my favorite dogs.

Hi there,
I know this is an old thread but I was just on this other site looking at poodle info and I came across about the white chocolate poodle - POODLE COAT COLORS: SILVER & SILVER BEIGE
so i googled white chocolate poodle and this came up & I use this forum so I said I would leave this here for people to see - apparently you shouldn't breed brown to cream red or apricot...
Never heard of that before - anyone else know this or bred between these with this happening/not? Is the problem with showing them - there are so many colours I wouldn't have thought the combo would have been a problem?
Just curious to see if anyone has more info on this please and thanks!
I have a creamy light apricot visually ( some say white, some say light apricot, I can't get a straight one on that ) - I would have bred her down the line with a brown no bother - or another with a brown parent as she has brown bloodlines too...
Any help would be great thanks

It actually sounds like pretty coloring to me and I guess it is rare if nobody breeds that coloring, lol!

I think it is NOT a health issue BUT a pigment & fading issue. Brown Spectrum colors have brown on nose, eyerims "points". Now if you breed a "Brown" spectrum you might end up with Creams, Reds, Apricots, Whites with the wrong pigment & therefore not able to show. Then you also have fading colors & breed fading to fading you will end up with really washed out colors.

You have a Cream possibly maybe with apricot tinged ears? What is in your pups pedigree you said there is brown, what else?

I don't show so I really am not picky about a dog's color (admittedly, white is my least favorite because of tear stains). Health and temperament is more important to me (a big reason I'm anti-Merle poodles).

I go on Craigslist a lot too to look around. I see so many breeders trying to sell mutts!
