I've seen one too on one of the Cavalier meet-ups. A sweet fella. I suppose it is abnormal, not sure what combination can cause that. I'm sure the experts in the forum has the answers. Are you saying that you're wantingn a black and white Cavalier or just asking possibility?

Ginger is a tri-color with very little brown. People often stop me and say "wow Ive never seen a black and white cav before". Shes got 1 brown eyebrow and the only other brown on her is under her ears!
I think it may just be in the markings....some rubys & b/t's have white chests and feet...Ive seen some heavily marked tris mostly black with little white.

I read somewhere, that the constant breeding of tri to tri reduces the amount of tan, so Blenheims are introduced to compensate for this. There were black and whites once, as there were all blacks, but they were rejected for the breed standard. There is a line, in the USA which produces liver instead of black on tricolours.

If you have the link to a Website- Id love to see that~ The genetics of color really facinates me. ;)

People may term it black and white but usually it is simply tricolour (unless you have seen an actual picture). I see blenheims called red and white and brown and white all the time, and tricolurs often get called black and white. A badly mismarked dog could simply be missing the brown but if it just says 'black and white' they almost certainly mean a tricolour. Tells you a lot about the type of breeder if they cannot even call their dogs by the proper term... the IKC puppy gazette is full of registered breeders calling theit puppies by the wrong colours. :mad: A reminder that finding a good breeder involves a lot more than just the club registration!

BTW I have read that tricolours with a lot of white also have the least tan colouring. Heavily marked tris (eg very black) apparently usually have a lot of tan.

We saw a black and white cavalier once at Ohio State University vet hospital. The cavalier had absolutely no tan, and was larger than most cavaliers I've seen. The couple who owned him also had a large blenheim. I think they came from Mississippi or Louisiana.

As the photo is on the site of a breeder who sells over the net, I'm not sure that Karlin would want the link posted.
