Coat Color And Grooming
The Entle's coat is thick, dense, and tricolored. The coloring is mostly shiny black, with white on the chest, all four feet, and the tip of the tail, as well as a white blaze from the muzzle to the top of the head. Areas between the black and white are rust-colored. They have a thick undercoat and a top coat. Weekly brushing will help keep shedding to a minimum.
