    They can be a bit 'skittish'.

    Cy absolutely adores people, all people, when we go for our socialisation walks through town he will be jumping all over people who stop and say hello, but if another dog walks past him he will freak out.

    But he loves Cavaliers... they are in the ring just before us at shows and he gets so excited trying to play with them, yet the Chihuahuas or the other Cresteds come near and he gets scared... strange dog.

    Sometimes certain colours are disqualified from a breed as they were never genetically a part of that breed to start with. So their appearance is considered indicative of crossbreeding along the track somewhere.

    A very contentious one is brindle in salukis. In some parts of the world it is a disqualifying colour, and many in the breed believe that the colour is not a part of the saluki phenotype and is a clear indicator of external blood. Yet the colour is allowed in Australia, and some believe that the colour is a true saluki colour. Long and heated discussions, and broken friendships have resulted.

    Another example, especially for anyone here who is horsey, is Arabian horses. The Arabian is considered the oldest and purest horse breed in the world. Dilute colour genes (palomino etc) have never been within that breed. So any horse showing those colours is automatically not a purebred. I have seen registered partbred palomino Arabians listed as 97%+ pure. But they are not ever considered purebred again. Some other breed has been introduced to bring in that colour, and no matter how many time you cross back with purebred the colour will show impurity.

    Not that impurity is a bad thing, there are some amazing dilute coloured partbred Arabians out there. I just use the example to show how some colours can be not a genetic part of particular breeds.

    I agree some colours where never a part of a breed but there are many that have been just not reconized.
    I have no issues with part breeds & can even see the good sides but I think we should know if thats what they are & in horse breed registries these days thats not the case.
    I guess what I am saying is I am happy to have a pally arab say but it should be promoted as such % arab.
    But back to the dogs I just think we should be able to promote all colours that we know geneticly possible of that breed & if you want to breed a different coloured 1 just admitt what breed you used in the mix to get it.
