What's the difference between a Fawn and a Red?

Fawn is the dilute of red. Red ranges from a chocolate brown colour to a liver red colour. Fawn is a washed out version of that, a pale silvery tan.

On the left hand side is a fawn on top, a red below.

I think Moses might possibly be a fawn because he hasc areas where his coat seems faded, like the back of his head and underneath his neck....I thought that might have been from the sun but...we'll see...

To be honest it does look like poor nutrition and sun because it's on the points that would take the most heat/sun.....Thanks Mary

Moses is definitely a red, not a fawn (if moses is the dog you just pulled from a shelter).

Ok...so would a fawn be paler in general?

sorry for the questions but before this I wasn't aware of fawn Dobermans and I would like to be able to tell the difference in future...

Yeah Mary I'm sure he's got a couple of problems going on.....

The good thing is that he's on the up and up...we went for a hike (Luke & Moses) and he did great and we are exercising daily and he's getting stronger and more alert...he's also drinking more water and eating more food...so it's just a matter of time before he'll be wearing me out....:tongue23:

This is MrDesi's beautiful fawn female (above)



This beautiful young lady is Red Dobie's Allie (young pic :))

As you can see the fawn is clearly a different shade. The shades vary for both red and fawn from lighter to richer, but always they are clearly identifiable and separate.
