The Fawn Micro Bully Coat

The fawn coat is the one that is normally known as the brown or the caramel colored with all the tones. One needs to understand that the fawn, red or any type of brown tone would fit in this particular category of color if one can distinguish with the blue fawn. A fawn micro bully is not uncommon; it normally comes with a black nose and pigmented eyelids. When there are a number of dogs together, you can easily recognize one with a strange tone, as it will resemble the ‘mascara’ with dark-colored eyes.

Compared to that, when we talk about the blue fawn micro bully, its blue shine is caused by the light brown tone and blue under-lights. Although you will not appreciate this trait in the American Staffordshire Terrier, it is a common coat in a micro bully. You will also notice other dog breeds presenting a kind of mascara color, but unlike a micro bully, it may give off quite a cold look. It is worth mentioning that it is quite common for the fawn color with all tones to be combined with the white color.

What are the Different Shades of Fawn in a Micro Bully?

The fawn micro bully coat is the result of the interplay of the black and the agouti genes. You will notice a good range of shades in the fawn color, and the nose can either be black or brown. There are other extra variations to this particular color, which are as follows.

Blue Fawn

The blue fawn is one of the most desired and a pretty combination of fawn and blue hair. When you have a close look, you will notice that half of the hairs are fawn, and the rest are blue. The blue fawn will be similar to the solid color because there could be extra branding and markings. Yet, this color combination is very rare, and therefore, it has become famous.

Reverse Fawn Brindle

This is among the color combinations that may sound confusing to many, but numerous dog owners in different parts of the world love it. When it is about the brindle markings, they are dark and have a lighter background. The actual meaning of the reverse fawn brindle is that there is a dark background color with fawn brindle markings.

Red Fawn

You will not find a red fawn micro bully to be that frequent as compared to other hues, but it is still a lovely pet to own. Basically, the red fawn is the blend of the red and fawn hairs. The combination of both colors is the same way as we can see in the blue fawn. Keep in mind that there is also a possibility that you may find a red fawn brindle micro bully.

Sable Fawn

The sable fawn looks like an exotic color, and many micro bully breeders and owners consider it to be rather an interesting combo. The sable fawn is made up of the fawn and black hairs, and the ratio can either be 50/50 or even 70/30.
