What Color is Ninja?
A banded top coat means each cell produces one color pigment and then switches to another color, each hair is multicolored (often black, red, white)… As I understand, Agouti refers in general to this type of banded top coat and usually has a darker undercoat.
Wolf Grey is a special form of Agouti, where phaeomelanin dilution turns red hair into cream and greyish thus banding each hair in white, grey and black, with brownish colored fur on head, ears, sides and a creamy undercoat.
So Ninjas coat color is „Wolf Grey“ and thus also „Agouti“. Here are the results of Ninjas color tests:
A-Lokus (Agouti) – Aw/Aw
B-Lokus (Coat Color Brown) – B/b
D-Lokus (Dilution) – D/D
E-Lokus (Coat Color Yellow) – E/E
K-Lokus (Dominant Black) – ky/ky

The red seems more like light golden , whatever the colors are Ninja is stunning
@_izzy_pictures Dankeschön… keine Angst, ich werde nicht leid dies zu hören
@renimals I bet she does not have white or dark undercoat, but cream color.
@happy.golden.retriever it always depends on the light… in bright light the brownish red is quite visible…
@sunnysam6319 In the snow it does become apparent how creamy his „white“ is.
