What colors are her parents? (Knowing the grandparents' colors would also be helpful.)

She looks chocolate tort to me. The red coloring tends to come with Black / Chocolate torts, and I see chocolate lacing in the ears/nose, not black.

thanks guys :) I do not ever have torts in my litters so this is new for me

Winterwolf, her sire is a blue eyed white which has black and broken black in his pedigree. The mom is a sable point magpie harlequin and I don't have her pedigree. They has 2 kits and the other is a broken red. I have never had that color either. Mom has no red on her but I guess it is in her genes.

If she's sable point magpie, it's more likely than not that she carries non extension (what causes red and tort), it's what adds the sable point shading to the magpie

I know, I just love the cheeks on her. This mama makes some of the fattest cheek babies :)

Thanks for the explanation Sable. I was trying to figure out where the red came from.
