Phantom Poodles are not like solid-colored Poodles. They have a unique color pattern. These unique Poodles are a unique option for owners seeking something a bit different. They are not the only dogs that have dual-colored coats. There are some key differences to know about these Poodles before you choose one for your home. Here are some of them:
There are many sizes and colors available for Poodles. All are distinctly unique, and the American Kennel Club does not recognize all of them. Most breeders recognize the Moyen/Klein Poodle, which falls somewhere between a Standard Poodle or Miniature. This Poodle possesses unique markings on its face, neck, and ears. The standard poodle is not a social butterfly. However, it does require training. This is evident in its coloring.
Phantom Poodles are susceptible to the same health problems as other Poodles. These include heart disease, eye problems and bloating. Besides this, these dogs are also prone to developing thyroid problems and Addison’s disease. Unfortunately, breeders have turned to inbreeding methods to create particular colors and characteristics of their dogs, resulting in a much higher percentage of inbreeding than would have been the case if the poodles were able to be rescued or adopted.
As a Phantom Poodle, you can choose from the following colors: black, gray, silver, apricot, and silver. Each color will have distinct markings on the dog’s body. The markings on the phantom Poodle’s coat are called Dobie markings, because they are reminiscent of the paws of a Doberman. However, it should be noted that these markings are not permanent, and it will eventually disappear.
Phantom Poodles can be any color, but the main difference between a black phantom is the genetic makeup of the breed. Phantom Poodles require certain genotypes on the E gene. Phantom dogs must have one copy each of the E and Em genes, as well as two copies of At gene on the A locus. Phantom Poodles must also have the KY/KY genotype which allows for tan markings.
Phantom Poodles look the same as solid poodles, except for their color. They may look darker or lighter than the solid Poodles but they are just as cute and great for family pets. They aren’t affected by temperament or grooming like solid Poodles. Their colors don’t necessarily indicate a bad dog’s character. They are great for families with small children or pets with small children.
Phantom standard poodles are not different from their solid counterparts. However, they are often misunderstood. These Poodles are not a distinct breed. They have distinct markings on solid backgrounds, such as black and cream. The colors of phantom Poodles range from brown to silver. If you think you’re seeing an unusual coloring pattern on your poodle, be sure to consult a veterinarian.
