This should help you more for those confused over colors :)
Though not every color seems to be pictured this shows many of them to better aid people in knowing what color their dogs are .

APBT and AmStaff color charts:

ADBA:

had a question in regards to blue brindle. In the descriptions i read it says that fawn is actually the base coat and the blue is the brindle. Is there such thing as reverse brindle? Opinions on my girls coat. Kind of a dark pic.

Genetically, no. The base coat will always be fawn with varying degrees of blue or black striping. Sometimes there is more brindle than base coat so the dog looks blue or black with fawn stripes, but it's just a heavy amount of brindle coming through.
 
Is merle a color recognized by the UKC or ADBA? I met a breeder online a few years back he had a yard full of red & blue merle dogs. He was breeding for this rare colored coat. I believe he said they were registered AKC AmStaffs.

T o my understanding Merle is not recognized by either.

Mine is a pit bull mix, which explains part of the coloring, but I can never find her on a color chart. She's closest to chocolate, but seems to have more of a red pigment than that. But has too much of a brown pigment to be red. She also has brindle stripes when she's in strong sunlight, she (and all her littermates) were born brindle, but they mostly "outgrew" the stripes. Ella's are most visible on her hips and along her spine.Ella.jpg

What if a black dog's fur is beginning to turn brown in certain areas, and he also has some grey areas that are hard to notice? Will it keep changing or stay black?
 
image.jpgSo I'm pretty sure that's he's mixed with something else other than red nose pit. Can anyone help me with what he could possibly be mixed with. His coat is a little longer than a full blooded pit. I have seen some with the tall ears. I've been told that he's possibly mixed with shepherd. I would really like some feedback!! Please and thank you =) His name is Rusty by the way =)
