Tanner (dark sable, carrier of both blue [d] & recessive black [a])

Tanner is a beautiful dark sable (a dark fawn with evenly distributed black tipped hairs especially prominent on the upper body). His coat color is quite rare, but he also carries the dilute gene for blue [d] and also the rare recessive black gene [a], which can be combined with the even more rare tan points gene [at] to produce the very rare and very gorgeous black & tan and blue & tan Frenchies. He has already fathered some gorgeous litters including sables, blue-fawns, fawns, and pieds; and we expect many more outstanding litters from him. He has great conformation and and wonderful, calm, sweet disposition, surely as a result of his outstanding European ancestry, including the prominent “Shark”, “La Monarchia”, and “Palevyh Buldogov” lines.
