A parti-colored Pomeranian is one with more than one coat color. Ideally, the parti Pomeranian is a white dog with colors that are distributed in patches on the body, with a white blaze preferred on the head. The white is clear of excessive ticking. The patches may be in any of the solid colors. All the patches must be the same color. The color of the points (eye rims, nose, lips and pads) on parti-colored dogs should be in keeping with the points required for the color of the coat patches (i.e., orange, red, black, cream, sable, red merle, blue merle and brindle partis should have black points, blue, and blue sable partis should have blue points, and brown, brown merle and beaver partis should have brown points). Symmetry of facial markings is desirable.
An & tan parti is a Pomeranian displaying the «& tan» pattern and parti-colored pattern (white with colored patches).
