Coat color may be any standard color broken by spots of white forming a pleasing pattern. The preferred spot pattern is as follows: a nose spot, forehead spot, spot on the nape of the neck, and tip-of-tail spot. All spots must be centrally spaced. Spots shall be large, as round as possible, even in size and separate. The spots should not contain furs of any other color. Feet, tail tuft, and all or some portion of the bib and belly are white.
Shall be black, dark, ruby, or pink to correspond with standard color, large and bright.
Shall be covered with short, soft fine fur of the standard coloring.
Should be of standard coloring and/or white.
Four white feet; toenails shall be neutral (i.e., clear and without pigment).
Missing spots; small or off-centered spotting; colored fur in the spots; faded, dull, or off colored coat; fur of any other color in the coat; white hairs in the colored portion of the tail; toenails not of the correct color.
