Hi All, just got my first KC Chihuahua. She was advertised as Fawn Sable but I saw from the picture of the advert that she had a chocolate nose (turns out that it was just a bad picture).
I went to see her and immediately fell in love, but she is definitely not Fawn Sable. She is extremely well behaved and very affectionate, just so lovable! The lady I bought her from told me she was actually blue when she had her as a puppy but she changed colour when she grew up. Her KC papers states that she is blue.
I know sables can change colour as they grow older, and reds can become more intense but have never heard of a blue turn a different colour.
Her fur seems like a coffee cream colour with a grey tinge and nose has a faded tan stripe down the middle. Her eyes are normal dark brown colour and her feet pads could be grey but comparing them to my fawn Chihuahua's feet, they appear the same colour. Her underside is white. If you part her fur, it is white underneath.
A picture by herself only looks fawn so I have placed her next to some of my other Chihuahuas so that you can see the difference.
From left to right: Cream, Red Fawn, Fawn? (He looks Ginger in real life) and Her????
Can anyone suggest what colour she is?
