at- (recessive) - Tan points

 These are not Whippets - they are Manchester Terriers. I have not yet received any photos of Whippets with these precisely located areas of tan.

The "tan" areas of a tan-point marked dog can range from palest fawn to deepest red, depending on the genes present that effect the fawn colors in the coat.

The black areas of the coat would be blue when the double "dd" blue dilution genes are present.

If brindle "Ebr" is also present, then the tan areas will also show brindle striping.


These are Manchester Terrier puppies. Even at this young age the VERY precisely located and separated areas of black and tan can be seen.
