oh..and don't Border Terriers

oh..and don't Border Terriers come in Grizzle? or is that something else being called that name? A friend over in England used to raise them, and I recall she called some of them Grizzle when talking about new litters of pups.

The researcher who isolated
The researcher who isolated grizzle stated that it only occures in those two breeds. Its main difference from the dog you posted is the light muzzle that ends in the "widows peak" and the light color on the outside of the legs. Your dog is EM because of the mask and either at sable or aw I'm not that great at telling them apart yet. You could probably tell by looking at the hair as sable is black tiped where as aw will have alternating bands. I have permission to use more photos so I'll get them added to the gallery in the next few days.

yeah...this dog had a much darker head. She was a dropoff here and we would have kept her, but she started chasing the horses. Nice enough dog otherwise. I called her a sable when I had animal control come pick her up, but wasn't even 100% on that..LOL

So, what are the "grizzled" Border Terriers then?

Just going by this site
Just going by this site http://www.borderterrierrescue.com/about.htm It looks like what they are calling grizzle is actually an fawn/sable dog. They would be ay at agouti. The particular dog in the picture is also EM.

excellent. Thank you!

excellent. Thank you! Sometimes it's hard to figure out what is what because they like to use other names. I just found out a few months ago that Dapple Dachshunds are merles...LOL. I thought they looked the same. My boyfriend calls them "moldy" himself...

oh..and that shepherd cross

oh..and that shepherd cross up there. Her hair was just tipped. If only she weren't a pony chaser, we would have kept her. Sweet critter.
