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.

The discussion of whether or not a dog is an agouti comes frequently here. The thought is, a dog has a "dirty face," than it must be an agouti. Agouti actually refers the banding on the hair shaft, a triple banding.

My sister raises rabbits for their fur, which she spins into yarn than knits. One of her bunnies just had a litter work a lilac agouti and she posted a picture of an adult agouti to illustrate the banding. One of the best pics I've seen to illustrate banding.

Wolf gray the individual hairs are not banded and will have buff/reddish areas behind ears, with a beige/buff undercoat.
Here, each individual hair starts "lilac" (gray) than has a cream band than a "lilac" band. A sable husky has a 2 banded hair - a buff/red sort of color with black tips and red, chocolate or orange undercoat. A wolf gray will have buff/reddish areas behind ears, with a beige/buff undercoat.

Do not believe you can have a black and white with red points. If you do, probably a mix in there. At least in Siberian Huskies.

Both mine are mixes squirt with indian dog spider with arctic/ grey wolf. Both have banded hair but totally different color. Squirts mom was akc and same colors and markings as squirt. Its just way interesting spider has all the characteristics of a wolf grey including the red below hocks behind ears and lighter tan on her face but with 3 banded hair and a white undercoat. I guess its more wolfy agouti then husky agouti
