List of Pomeranian Colors
Sometimes this color will not show in a
Pomeranian picture, if the sabling is very light. Yet with other Poms, it's distinct. A sable Pomeranian will have a solid base and the sable comes into play via guard hairs that have dark tips. There are many types of sables, including cream sable (light base coat with black guard hairs) color code S 348, chocolate sable (brown coat with black guard hairs) color code A 350 and just about everything in-between. Red -
A red Pomeranian
will be a reddish-orange colored dog that is often described as a rust color. It will be the darkest, deepest orange possible in regard to fur. This color is rather rare, and it is not uncommon for a dark orange to be incorrectly categorized as a red, color code S 140. Orange -
An orange Pomeranian, color code S 133 can range from light to dark. There is a find line between dark orange and red. If any black striping occurs, this brings it to a orange brindle. Any black tipping brings it to an orange sable, color code S 137.
With a cream Pomeranian, color code S 076, color can actually range quite a bit. This can be very light - one step darker than a white, and it goes through shade gradients all the way to what one would consider to be light brown.
How do you distinguish a dark cream from chocolate (brown)? It will show in the skin pigmentation of the Pom. A deep cream Pom will have black pigmentation, and a chocolate will have brown points (eye rims, nose, lips, paw pads).
Buyer beware - creams are often born white.
