Ok so I found a few pics of Eli's dam and sire. They aren't the best pics but you can get an idea of how blue his dam is. I consider her a "True Blue" . Her color seems very rich and deep. The creme dog is his sire.
I had always thougt Eli was going to be black but after I have read more Im unsure. Eli had the brown highlights when he was younger but when I cut him down he was black again. I was told that the sun will make his hair get a brownish tint but he even had the brownish tint on hair underneath is paws.
I have been noticing a lot of whitish guard hair's coming in through his body and even his muzzle now.
So what does everyone else think? Eli does have Jet black dogs behind his mother's pedigree. Any idea's? Oh and Eli is almost 15 months now.
