I found a "tuff" of black hair on my yellow male just yesterday. Thought it was dirt, but nope. Black hair.

Will that hurt his stud service price or interest?

I agree -- it is not a big deal but do you think anyone else would object with stud service?

I doubt you will have to concern yourself with stud service. If the dog turns out to be some type of champion then maybe and it would be a very small maybe you would have to be concerned.

As long as the pedigree is clean that is what is most important.

That is what I was thinking.

I have seen a lot of dogs with various patches. Don't worry about his stud value until you put an AFC or FC on him.

What type of paper work are you looking for?

Found it. It was his AKC papers -- now I need to send them in. His litter was registered but not him.

Hitman,

There are a lot of dogs in the trials that are not perfectly marked. Many have white in excess of the AKC show standard but it does not affect the trial stuff. I have seen some pretty odd looking dogs trial. Sime in coloration some that are blind in one eye, some that are missing a foot and other things. They all do well in the field though. Unless you are trotting around the show ring or it is in some way linked to a physical or tempermental trait a little bit of off color patch should not hurt you. If you breed a black to your yellow you will get mixed colors anyway. As stated there are ways to "cover" it up. Lady Clairol is used a lot at shows. Just For Men too to cover up some of the gray of an aging dog.
