Coat: Banded coat - dark bands gray.

Undercoat: White/off white

Legs and Face: White/off white

Facial Markings: May be dark enough to give the appearance of a full bar, however the color is always salt and pepper rather than solid. Markings on face often fade and can be much less extensive in adults,
detectible only as rings around the eyes.

Pigment: Slate gray

Eyes: Yellow

Notes: Can be difficult to tell from Light Blue as an adult. Also
often mistaken for Gray.

Newborn or Puppy: Born with a sooty or "dirty" looking face. Eyes
slate gray when they open.
