Coat Color And Grooming
The medium-length, weatherproof coat is harsh and crisp to the touch. It comes in a range of fawn and gray shades, including light fawn, dark fawn, gray, gray with black highlights, blue gray, gray red, and brindle.
Grooming needs are minimal; they need only a monthly combing and brushing and a wipe-down when they get something on their coats. They shed lightly and don't have a doggie smell.
