Are their certain color dogs from particular background that produce it? Is it more common in smaller poodles? I'm just curious. I was very taken w/ Ch. Alegria Shamus (Miniature) at the dog show.

Silver bred to silver where both dogs carry a brown gene.

Shane is amazing. He is simply one of the nicest Minis out there showing today.

I don't think they pop up very often because as a brown breeder it would not be desirable to add a fading allele over your brown color. Brown breeders always try to breed the darkest brown possible.

The flip side is that a light Silver Beige, like Shane, is highly desirable in a silver breeding program because he will bring a good strong silvering allele to the breeding. So Shane could be bred to a Blue or Silver to produce silver puppies. He would probably not be used in a Brown breeding program unless someone was wanting to breed Cafes.

Madison is beautiful ! I never seen a standard like that. Very interesting info regarding silver beige.
