(Pn active) (PN dominant)
Pinto - A solid white layer that appears on top of the entire Felvarg. Genetically speaking, Pinto, alike piebald, covers the entire body, but there are breaks and/or holes in the white layer that reflect the rest of the geno below. These breaks may be large or small, and have no set pattern, meaning it is up to the owner to decide how the base and markings under are revealed.

Pinto MUST be an obvious shade of white, colors that appear too cream or grey will be sent to corrections.
Pinto (the white area), must have at least 30% coverage on the Felvarg. (Maximum 70% coverage.)
Pinto can consist of large and small spots but cannot replicate any other markings at a glance.
The erased holes of pinto should not have flecks of white within them. Small areas of pinto may be erased in the remaining coverage, but it should not create spots outside of its general coverage. Please refer to the images below for an example.
If your Pinto is visible on flesh areas (Lip/Nose/Paws/Eyes/Inner Ear), then you may add a subtle pink tint. It must be subtle and anything that seems to drastic will be sent to corrections.
While pinto is a solid marking you can use a soft brush like we have in the examples below.
**NOTE If skew is present with pinto, pinto shows ABOVE Skew and it now forces skew to be black.
When pinto touches the flesh areas of a Felvarg and gives it the pink tint, then the actual flesh being touched (nose, lips, paws, eyes), must also turn pink. For example, the nose and gums should be pink if the muzzle has the soft pink tint.
If affected by Reversal, then Pinto does not need to show in the required red range and may display with exterior spots rather than the usual internal holes.
- The red range shown above indicates where pinto (the white) should always be present in some way. Below we will show good and bad examples of pinto and how to use the marking correctly.
- Pinto can be placed anywhere however it must in its minimal form reveal 30% of the markings below it. (Maximum 70%)
