Is there a same colored triangle between the ears?
Sounds like it may be an Otter.
You can create more by breeding to a Black.
breed the offspring back to the parents.

Black and Black otter.

The Otter colour can be bred to any self colour (Black, blue, chocolate, lilac) and you'll get about 50% otters (although any selfs in the litter will not carry otter) or you can breed an Otter to an agouti (Castor, opal, amber, lynx) and again you'll get about 50% otter with a chance that any agouti in the litter also carries otter.
