& Tan Parti-Color

An & tan parti color is a dog who is displays both the "& tan" pattern and parti-colored pattern (a tan pointed parti). The color of the points (eye rims, nose, lips and pads) should be in keeping with the points required for the color of the coat patches (i.e., orange, red, black, cream, sable, red merle, blue merle and brindle parti's should have black points, blue, and blue sable parti's should have blue points, and brown, brown merle and beaver partis should have brown points).

Merle

Blue merle This is the classic gray/black pattern. The blue merle is actually a black or black & tan dog with the dilution gene acting upon the black areas of the coat. The points (eye rims, nose, lips and pads) are black. One or both eyes genetically may be blue, have blue flecks or be brown. 

Red, Liver or Chocolate merle This is a chocolate dog with the dilution pattern acting upon it. This dog will have a chocolate nose and pigment and the pattern will be chocolate and silvery chocolate. One or both eyes genetically may be blue, have blue flecks or be brown.

Sable Merle this is a sable dog with the merling acting primarily upon the black hairs in the coat. In a heavily sabled dog the pattern may be very obvious, while in a lightly sabled dog, it may be imperceptible. The merling pattern is clear at birth but can fade within weeks. An experienced breeder can recognize the distinctive champagne color of the coat of an adult sable merle dog. Pigment of the dog will be black. One or both eyes genetically may be blue, have blue flecks or be brown.

Variations Merle can dilute black and chocolate each time it occurs including: black, black and tan, chocolate and tan, dilute black (blue), blue and tan and dilute chocolate (beaver), sables, brindles. Merling can occur in the color areas of parti-colored dogs. Other colors (red, orange, cream) show little visual effect. One or both eyes genetically may be blue, have blue flecks or be brown.

Please note that the Pomeranian Standard does not allow for blue eyes. Eyes must be dark.
