The Dove is dark dove grey-brown in colour to the roots on the back, sides and belly. The area around the side of the nose is white and the feet are also white. There may also be white on the chin and sometimes patches of white on the belly. The eyes are red and the ears are flesh coloured.
Many Doves develop silvering (a sprinkling of white hairs particularly around the neck) as they get older and the Dove colouring lightens.
Dove can be combined with any pattern or coat type to produce Dove Mottled, Dove Satin, etc.
