He always gets called an apricot, and though I always knew/thought he was red the constant apricot claims got me thinking. LOL. I think most people associate reds with the deep mahogany color when thinking of red.. or just don't normally see his color.
Sorry, I hadn't read the whole thread. Sometimes people who have never seen a red call Ginger brown, but fluffyspoos is right browns don't have black points and when side by side they are very different looking.
When I listed Cameron in the new members thread, I put him as dark apricot. However, after looking through the rainbow poodles threads at the reds, I'm thinking he might be red? His coat is not a consistent color--it has lighter and darker places, and his nose is brown.
