Black & Tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy

Black & Tan

The black & tan is my favorite color!

Jet black with rich tan markings over the eyes, on cheeks, inside ears, on chest, legs, and underside of tail.

The genetic combinations for Black and Tan are very complicated. By breeding a Black and Tan to the other colors including another Black and Tan you can begin to narrow down the genetic make-up of your Black and Tan. Black and Tans that carry the white gene (review pedigree for a Blenheim or Tri Color ancestor in up to 3 generations back) can sometimes produce all 4 colors when bred to another whole color carrying the white gene or if bred to a Blenheim or Tri Color. If breeding a Black and Tan to another Black and Tan or Ruby and only one of the pair carries the white gene then whole color puppies will be produced, but some white mismarking can occur. Mismarking does diminish with maturity.

My favorite characteristic about the Black and Tans are their incredible ears and slippers which is a hallmark trait of the breed and in my opinion Black and Tans rule when it comes to incredibly long ears and wonderful slippers. Black coats in general regardless of breed tend to grow more coat and maintaining a black coat is usually much easier than other coat colors. A black coat can take on a reddish tint if they are in the sun too much. There are sun screen sprays that can help protect the coat and keep the rich raven black.
