Blue Doberman

April 5, 2011 by Peter

A blue Doberman is a unique sight. If you have seen one in person, you know exactly what I'm talking about. 

Blue Doberman

Ever wondered why some Dobermans turn out blue? Here is the answer: "Blue" and "fawn" are controlled by the color dilution gene. The blue Doberman has the color gene with at least one dominant allele and the dilution gene with both recessive alleles (i.e., BBdd or Bbdd). If you'd like to get deeper into Doberman genetics, read this

You won't see many blue Dobermans around, because they are very rarely born in the first place and some people don't feel like this special color and unique look is worth the risk of a possible skin disease associated with blue Dobermans. Others, however, are constantly on the look out for blue Dobermans. They don't care about possible skin problems, as they have found working methods to solve them, and they don't mind paying thousands of dollars for a blue. If you are one of these people, you are in for a treat! 

We have a fantastic blue male, called SilverLight, for sale. He is 4 months old and comes from great parents: World Dog Show Winner sire and a beautiful and healthy dam.
