To our knowledge, the Pomeranian may be the only breed which counts “beaver’ as one of its AKC acceptable colors. It’s is an interesting color that’s actually a dilute chocolate with shades that range from a cream-beige to an orange-brown. In previous standards, this color was referred to as biscuit. Some mistake a cream Pom for a Beaver, but this is determined by skin pigmentation. A Beaver is distinguished from the cream color by a self-colored beige/brown pigment on the dog’s nose, lips, eye rims, and foot pads. As an aside, a Pom that has any black in its coat or points is not a Beaver.
Image of a Beaver Pom found on Pinterest and we’d very much like to give proper credit to this dog. Speak up if you can help.
