Since the Pomeranian breed can be seen in a wide range of colors, as many as 3 can appear on the coat. This is known as a tri-color Pomeranian. While technically, any color can appear, there are some that are seen much more than others. Black
, chocolate (brown), tan, cream and white are seen much more often in tri-coats than red, lavender or blue, which are much more rare in solids, partis (two colors) or tri coats. So, the more common a color is, the more likely it will appear in Pomeranians that have coats consisting of 3 colors.
But in addition, the more common colors tend to be seen together. For example, you will not often see a lavender, white and cream and you will not see a red, lavender and chocolate, as those colors are simply not seen together, but you will see a black, white and cream.
One of the wonderful and aesthetically pleasing aspects about tri color Pomeranians, is that in many cases, you will see one of the 3 colors appearing above the eyes.
This sort of marking is known as eyebrows. With a Pom that has dark fur on the head, the above-the-eye color will be lighter. And for those that have light fur on the head, the color will be darker. For those that have what would be considered a medium color (tan, gray, orange), the 3rd color that is seen as eyebrows can be either lighter or darker.
In addition, with more colors in play, you can then have more focal points and types of markings. For example, a blaze (a stripe running over the forehead) or a collar (a different color running around the neck).
