Hi! New here. I've been reading for a while - but just registered to ask for help! We're soon to buy a new puppy - and I'd love to find one the same color as the dog we currently have. But... I'm not sure what color you'd call him!! We've had several poodles over the years (all whites and a black) - but this little guy was actually a stray we took in after searching high and low for his owners. He was an absolute skinny, matted disaster
when we found him - and how he's absolutely, positively beautiful and THE perfect little family dog!
I thought, at first, he must be apricot - but one breeder said she thinks he's red. I'd love to find another dog his same color, but I'm not really sure what to look/ask for! All the apricot puppies I'm finding are coming from very "white" apricot parents and the puppies are extremely light.
When we first found him, I just called him "brown." lol He matched our pet hedgehog, who is a brown hedgie. He also matches our sofa - which is brown, lol. His nose is black
(with a little smudge at the top of his nose that is lighter in color) The vet estimates him to now be between 3-4 years old.
Here is where he very nearly perfectly matches our sofa - which is brown.
