Beagle colors

The Beagle comes in a large varitey of colors. There are 25 AKC color combinations.

Making up those 25 color combinations are 10 colors.

There are also 6 distinct markings that a Beagle may have. 
The 2Red: A red Beagle will be a reddish-orange colored dog.  The two colors will not be distinct.  The coat will be one blend of a red-orange color.  Red will not mean red as in an apple.  The fur will be any color from a dusty orange to a deep dark red

Blue: This is a diluted (faded) black.   A true Blue Beagle will have blue pigmentation; thus making the distinction between black or blue.   It's fur will be a dull black color but his nose will a blue tint/sheen to it.  This often is not noticeable unless the dog is outside in the bright sunshine.

Lemon:   A pure solid lemon Beagle is very rare.  More common is the Lemon & White.  As the pure white lemon Beagle puppy grows, to an adult dog,  the base color will be a pure white or an off-white with light golden patches.

Bluetick & Redtick:  The term of tick refers to freckle-like spots on the dog.  Bluetick is a diluted (faded) black and redtick can range from  light orange to a deep, dark red spots.

Fawn, Tan & Brown:  There is a distinction between these three Beagle colors.  Fawn is the lightest color in this range, tan is in the middle and brown is a color similar to that of a chocolate candy bar.

What About Chocolate?  Many people (even some breeders) refer to chocolate Beagles.  This is not an official AKC color. These beagle will fall into the fawn, tan or brown categories.
