Note: The pictures on this page are not meant to be true representatives of the animal’s color. Because of differences in monitors (CRT/LCD) and how the monitor is adjusted, the colors may be different.
TANS - Tans may be shown in any recognized color. The top color should be equivalent to the corresponding
recognized color, with the belly color being a rich golden-red tan. There should be a distinct and clear line
between the top color and tan, running in a straight line along the sides, chest, and jaws, showing no brindling
or intermingling of color. The feet should be tanned on the inside and of the top color on the outside. Tan
hairs will be found behind the ears.

FOXES - Foxes may be shown in any recognized color, and are similar to the Tans above. However,
their belly color is to be as near white as possible, and a slight ticking of white hairs on the feet,
sides and rump is desirable. Hair behind the ears is white.
