The pictures on facebook suggest:
1- It is a mix
2- It has some sort of odd Z factor type of coloration going on.
To me this isn't a fawn...
Further more, this person is BREEDING!!!
Further more, that group is full of useless people and would not trust their judgement. People posting to the wall asking to buy specifically Z factored pups...
Rouleaux, I think you're misunderstanding the "Z factor" thing.
This is a masking gene, a type of albinism that prevent the true expression of the color the dog was meant to be. Albino dogs genetically test for one of the four accepted colors--they just appear "white" because of the albinism.
The Z factor thing is to track dogs who *may* carry the albinism gene. A Z factor dog may be any one of four accepted colors, or it may be albino.
This would have nothing to do with an all-tan appearing dog such as the one being discussed here.
It also has nothing to do with "spotted" Dobermans, who have vitiligo--this has been brought up here in the past, so just mentioning it now as Z factor gets "blamed" for a lot of things it's actually not associated with. There are other problems that can cause unusual/off coloring.
i believe she is breeding as well. The only reason why i posted because i never seen a doberman of that color. You will see alot of poorly sickly looking dobies on there as well. There looks to be a fawn on there with a really bad coat. I joined it to learn more about dobies but its more less showing there dobies or advertising pups. I wanted to ask if she had papers but its really non of my concern
Kindafugly, you really ought to be much
more choosy about your sources for "learning more about Dobermans."
A bunch of dimwits who don't know any better than to breed such craptastic examples of the breed are infinitely unlikely to teach anything of value to any n00b.
