Solid Colored Dog Breeds

A dog is considered "solid colored" when their coat is predominantly a single color. Dogs with small areas of accent coloring on the paw, chest, or muzzle should still be considered solid colored. So if your fawn-colored pooch has a white paw or chest, she is still considered "fawn" and not "fawn and white".
