Hello everyone,


My Ely has a lot of white fur around her neck area. like its under a layer of black fur. She also has white on her belly. Just curious, is this white hair going to come off? Is she a mutt???

How old is she?


Did you get her from a breeder or pound?


What do you know if anything about her back ground?

My Max has a touch of white on his chest. Donna told me what it was once before but I forgot. Give that lil turkey a hug from all of us and welcome to the board!!

Some times the under coat is lighter,but it is not supose to be white.


Theyare born withwhite spots on them some times(it goes back to their ansisters the Brenese Mountain Dog).


White is a fault and all dogs with white should be neutered.If you could post a picture it would help to know just whatshe looks like.

Donna your right it might be the undercoat maybe it will get all black when she grows up. she looks like the rest of the rotts here its just those few hairs.

Welcome to our freindly group! It doesn't matter as long as you love her, just know that if she has the white she shouldn't be bred and they won't let her show but she's still your baby and that is all that matter's

I know this is an old post but eh, my rescued rott maybe alittle something else has white also, it's pretty close to my rott/gsd in markings just white not light brown. Still gotta love the little jug head.

When mine sheds (she's 17 months now) she has a really light undercoat that appears on her chest. It looks almost white. When the groomer comes her good brushing techniques usually take care of most of it.

Vitaglio is very, very rare. I am sure that a veteriarian would have picked up on this immediately. There is a difference in dogs with vitaglio and dogs with white markings. Also noce pigment is very likely to be affected in vitaglio. They almost look like burn patients.
