|Phantom is the term for two-tone color|
Genetics is very confusing to say the least...especially with color because White actually is a 'mask' over many other colors. For this reason, our White Dixie can throw Phantoms (a two tone color) and Blacks. White is also a 'lightening' color which lightens the red color to apricot. And sometimes changing to white!
To make it all more confusing, the puppies coat may or may not lighten as it matures.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am. I have found that a combination of color gives my customers a variety of choices. In 2009 Dixie gave birth to 7 white puppies. In 2010 she birthed 3 white, 1 Salt n'Pepper and 1 black.
