For example, a white Boxer with tan patches. However, a Pomeranian of any combination holds the same value as a solid Pom. However, we should note that some dog organizations will give higher points to a parti-pom if:
* The Pom has a base coat of white with only 1 certain secondary color
* The patches are symmetrical. For example, a white Pomeranian with a black patch on each leg
* There is a strike of white running up the head
* The patch matches the points. The points are the lips, eye rims, nose and pads of the paws. Any patches that fall in the blue category should have corresponding blue points. A Pom with brown patches should have brown points and a Pomeranian with just about every other colored fur patches would have black points.
What makes a parti-color? It is the genes of the dam and sire (dog's parents). In addition, genes can and often do skip generations. When 2 parti Pomeranians are breed together, this will always produce parti puppies.
- What is an Irish Parti? This dog will have a white collar, chest, legs and most often blaze.
- What is Piebald Parti? This type will have 50/50 coloring .
- What is a Extreme Parti? This dog will have 80% or more of white fur and will have spots of other color on its back.
