We’re Obsessed With These Unique Dog Coats
Black, brown, cream and ginger are four of the most common dog coats, but there are some dogs with far more unusual colors and markings that help them to stand out from the crowd.
Indeed, from spotted dogs to calico dogs and even multi-colored dogs, there are lots of ways in which dogs’ coats can be unique - and it’s often caused through breeding.
For example, if you cross-breed a dog or breed a dog whose parents have different colored coats, then their pups either follow the color of one of their parents, or they sport a stunning mix of the two.
Other reasons why dogs can be born with unique coats include non-threatening conditions and genetic defects - and whilst they may be the runt of the litter, they’re the ones that will attract the most attention and command a higher price when they come to be sold to others.
At Diapet, we think that every dog is beautiful, but some of them don colors that really have to be seen to be believed.
Below, we’ve put together dogs with truly unique colorings and coats, show off some memorable dogs and give reveal the rarest dog colors and markings…
