What color do you think my new boy is?

Discussion in 'Pit Bull Puppy Discussions' started by sugarskull_babe92, Oct 10, 2016.

  1. We went and picked out this sweet boy the other day. The breeder says he is silver, but I am unsure. What do you think? Silver, blue fawn, fawn, or champagne? Thank you in advance for any help. :)

    Champagne. He has a red nose, not black, so that would rule out your usual fawn.

    It's blue fawn or champagne they are fairly similar so it's hard to tell especially that young, most reputable breeders don't let pups go before 8 weeks they should still be with momma they should still be on moms milk at 3 weeks way to young to be separated in my opinion, good luck with your newborn pup.

    I can't make any statement on the pup's color (especially from pictures, and not having realized that champagne was a recognized color for the breed). But I did want to pop in and mention that I don't think the OP meant that they actually brought their pup home -- I'm pretty sure the breeder just allowed them to have pick of the litter, so to speak, and come and decide which pup from the litter they wanted once they were ready for their new homes.

    I think that was mentioned up above somewhere. She went to see pups and pick hers out

    No actually it does not say one way or the other but I do think it is important new puppy buyers understand what's right and what's not as I did not when I picked up my first pup at 5 weeks old a lot of times people get caught up in the excitement of I'm getting a puppy and don't think or don't know otherwise.

    I would hope that was the case it doesn't say either way, I just think it's important new puppy owners know most do not me included my first pup was barely 5 weeks when I got him. The acceptable or recognized colors seem to change more often nowadays the champagne to me is pretty much the same as blue fawn to me and I didn't know there was a such thing as blue fawn til 10 years ago, champagne will be the new designer color people go for same as the blue.

    That was the impression I got, at the least -- both initially and after as I believe I saw a thread in which the OP mentioned going with a female pup instead (I may be wrong though). Reading again, though, I can see that the wording is sort of ambiguous and could arguably go either way. Not to say there isn't importance in being sure people are away of appropriate ages to bring a pup home, I just wasn't sure it was appropriate in this situation when I previously posted.

    On the subject of color...I've been looking into this "champagne" and I'm still not sure how it works, so to speak. I'm reading different things and most sites coming up for the color are along the lines of the stereotypical bully breeder sites (the ones that give American Bullies a bad name and are breeding for extremes), so I'm not sure of the credibility of some of this information. Would anyone "in the know" mind explaining, either here or in a private message? I'd really appreciate it.

    I had heard of blue fawn/fawn bluey/bluie/whatever before, and that seems to entail or require a blue mask, but this champagne I'm having a harder time getting a grasp on.

    I think I also saw in another thread they said they were picking the pup up in a month which would be correct timing I could understand my intentions being misunderstood it can be hard to interpret typing sometimes. On the champagne it sounds like I have seen some of the same information that you have and I agree it's questionable at best. If you do happen to find anything more on it please do share thank you.

    I think I found something...

    At first I wasn't finding much, though I did find some solid information regarding "lilac," which gave me a working guess for champagne being similar, except that instead of black -> blue -> lilac it was, instead, liver/red -> uhm, lighter liver/red? -> champagne? But I honestly had no idea. I found literally nothing on the ADBA site/forms that mentions champagne, even on the litter registration form under "unacceptable terms to describe colors". I saw silver, but not champagne.

    I did also see it stated a few places that "Isabella" was another name for the color, so I did a search under that and found...

    Though that mentions lilac being a liver dilution.

    Lilac/Isabella/champagne/red fawn are all just different names for the same colour, and yes, it is a dilution of liver. Blue/blue fawn is a dilution of black.
