This photograph depicts a deep red champion male. All shades of red from fawn to deep red are equally acceptable. This red and white champion female is in the middle range of the red color. This red and white champion female is in a lighter shade of red that is often referred to as fawn. This photo depicts a champion male of the sable and white color. A dog may be lightly sabled, with just a scattering of black-tipped hairs over the withers, to one who is so heavily sabled that from a distance he almost appears black. This is a red-headed tricolor champion with some black sprinkled across the top of the skull. Often as the dog ages, the black on the head lessens. The black encompasses his eyes which makes him what is called a black headed tricolor.
