COLORS OF THE RAINBOW

 ​The Habibi is an amazing breed, not only is it the perfect family companion, but they have some amazing colors and patterns. We have developed new colors to add genetic diverisity to our line, and of course, more beautiful dogs. Habibi Bears come in over 25 different color/pattern combinations. This page will help explain the colors and patterns. 

Colors of Habibi

When looking at our extensive galleries of photos, it can easliy be confusing for a family to understand what color their puppy or dog are.  Toss in the fact that our breed carries a morphing gene that can either fade or darken as the dog matures, and that adds even more confusion to the coloration of the dogs.  

 

Let's break it down into two categories:  First, there is the color, and then there is a pattern.  Below, we will display pictures of different patterns and colors to help visualize everything.

The Confetti Merle Pattern

This is the merle gene, called a confetti in our breed.  This is a fun pattern that appears spotted in varrying degrees. The merle gene dilutes random sections of the coat to a lighter colour, leaving patches of the original colour remaining. The patches can be any size and can be located anywhere, unlike the patches on a piebald dog (which are generally confined to the body and head). The edges of the patches can appear jagged and undefined. Only 25% of the puppies in a Confetti-bred litter will have this marking.  The gene can be combined with other patterns, such as; parti-color, bi-color, phantom, Irish Piebald, or solid.  In  order for this gene to appear in a litter, one parent must be a Confetti.  It is one of our rarest patterns.

Coat Types

Fleece- the long fluffy coat,  is the most common in the Habibi, and occasionally we see the rare Plush Coat.  This goes back in the genetics of the breed, and is not seen too often.  The Plush coat is similar to the coat type of the Australian Shepherd, with the shorter hair on the face, feet and under the tail, which makes for a very low maintenance dog, not requiring the trimming like the other coat type.
