"Real Red" Dobies
I was wondering if any of you had heard of a "real red", I came across this term today. In the article I was reading, "real red" was given as a lesser known color for Dobies, no markings, just completely solid. The man who wrote the article mentioned that German Pinschers come in a "real red" color, which I have seen before. I think his point was more on the variations in reds among dogs (Dobies, Retrievers, etc.) and that Red/Rst is actually more liver or brown.

I know that German Pinschers and Miniature Pinschers both come in a color called "red" (called clear red in Min Pins), which is a solid, even red (think Viszla-type color) and "stag red", which is red with black intermingled in it. But I've never heard of "real red" being used to describe any of the three.
ETA: Maybe they are talking about the Garret's "solid fawn" litter, and trying to come up with a legitimate reason for them being such a weird color?
