Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

She looks light red to me, it looks like her pigment is black though and reds usually have a liver colored pigment, but I guess it can work both ways, she doesn't look sable though or anything from the grey/white family. How old is she now? Looks like she will be very light regardless, very pretty girl Smile

Reds do not have black pigment. Though I agree she doesn't look sable and that's too much 'buffing' to be gray I think at this point- she is purebred?

Jimmy She is 14 weeks and 2 days old Smile, that's what I was thinking that she will stay pretty light anyway☺️, and no she isn't purebred her father was a Copper coloured husky and mother was a white germansheperd and white husky so who really knows how those genes will turn out ☺️

I thought reds couldn't have black pigment and posted that once here on this site only to be corrected that they could (or maybe it was black markings, hmmm, I don't remember)  anyways, she is adorable!

Huskymom, what about a white? Often whites will have a reddish hue to them, Cora though might have too much red in her for that but just curious

So she likely won't follow the typical Siberian color chart.

Thank you Jimmy! Both of your dogs are beautiful! And yeah I know its hard to tell since she is not purebred I just thought since she is 75% or more that she would follow those charts more closely! Smile Smile

White, genetically, is a pattern more than it is a color as all whites are either red factored (liver pigment) or gray factored (black pigment)-

No, not stupid at all Smile the way we learn is to ask! So, if your white Siberian has liver pigment, genetically it is red. If your white Siberian has black pigment, genetically it is gray/black.

Ahh, ok. Thanks so much.!! So Cora's color really does have more to do with the German Shephard in her assuming that GSD was pure bred?

I would ponder a guess that the white Siberian on the mother's side was red factored (as in has the liver pigment making her genetically red), red being recessive, paired with the red sire gave her the red coat....but the German Shepherd gave her the black pigment.  That is only an 'semi-educated' guesstimate.
