Pyrenees – Dogs white color. But among other white European breeds (Kuvasz, Maremma, podgalyanki etc.) Pyrenean mountain dog distinguished by having a colored markings. This – their sparkle, decoration, extra touch to the portrait. Markings are usually on the head in the form of glasses or masks, and at the root of the tail. Several small spots may be scattered on the body, covering no more than one-third of the body surface Pyrenean mountain dog. Classic and, in my opinion, the most beautiful spots of color – the so-called "badger".
This rich color is obtained when the coat is made up of hairs white, black and yellow flowers, growing interspersed. Depending on the predominance of a particular color, the spots may be light or dark, pale or bright, giving individuality Iberian "customers". If there are no hairs red color, the color will be gray spots, "wolf." When the absence of black hairs spots are beige or sand. Sometimes born Pyrenean mountain dogs with absolutely no markings. Unfortunately, in recent years, there was the fashion for the Pyrenean mountain dogs, clean white color.
Buyers prefer the white puppy, willing to pay for it, often ignoring other features of its exterior. But pure white color of the dog carries with it certain disadvantages. First and foremost, it is attenuated pigmentation on nose, lips and eyelids. I colored dogs pigmentation is much better! Pitch-black noses, eye rims bright and dark eyelashes give dog-faced texture and expressiveness. A muzzles without markings, bad pigmented, look, "blond".
