Coat Colours - A Closer Look at the Brindle

When we first began researching various breeds of dogs, we were mesmerized by the many choices in coat colours. So many so, I came to know all the names: brindle, sable, pied, chocolate, silver, salt and pepper and the list goes on, but with only a clear understanding of the obvious, like chocolate, tan, white, silver etc.. I never took a next step to understanding complex coats like that of a brindle. Today I decided to take a closer look. From what I gather, the brindle appears to be a mottled black or brown stripe, seemingly running the horizontal width of the body, on a solid coloured background. It is a very rich and warm colour that to me resembles a diffused tiger stripe. Very handsome.
