No one colour or colour pattern should dominate the breed with the colour and colour patterns of the Canadian Eskimo Dog ranging from: (a) An all white body with pigmentation around the eyes, nose and lips (eg. not albino}; (b) White body with only the smallest amount of red, buff (including cinnamon shades), grey or black around the ears or eyes; (c) White bodies with either red, buff, cinnamon, grey, or black head marks around ears and eyes or the entire head and the occasional small patch of the same colour on the body usually around the hip or flank; (d) Red and white, or buff and white, or cinnamon and white or black and white with about 50/50 distribution of the two colours, on various parts of the body; (e) Red body or buff body or cinnamon body with white on the chest and/or legs and underside of the body;
(f) Sable or black body or dark grey body with white on chest and/or legs and underside of the body occasionally extending around part of the neck in a collar-like fashion; (g) Silver grey or greyish white body; (h) Buff to brown undercoat with black guard hairs. Very common to dogs with solid colour to most of the head is a mask-like shading of white around the eyes and/or muzzle with or without white spots over the eyes. On very rare occasions the spots over the eyes as well as the cheek-marks will be buff coloured adding a third colour to a normally two-coloured animal.
