So my red headed tri little man has had red freckles on his white socks on each leg ever since he came to me as a pup. I finally became curious enough to look it up on the internet. I found the description for ticking to quite accurately describe it. However, as I was reading on the site it mentioned that Pembrokes do not carry the gene for this color trait, and that it is only found in Cardigans. Since I know there are people here more educated than I in Corgi coloration, I'm curious as to what this pattern on my Finn may be.
He is AKC. The only reason I mention this is that he would then have a proven line of only Pembrokes. Correct? I included pictures, but they don't seem to show up as well as they do in person so I circled them in red. (Sorry for the dirty feet. We were snow shoeing the day before.)
my pu has one distinct freckly on one of his back legs, he is a pembroke!
I agree with Beth. That's really not ticking per say, just freckles.
now that shes old* woops :)
Waffle has them on his snout. It's just freckles! They're not numerous enough to be ticking.
Our baby Pembroke, Violet, now 17 weeks old, has a black 'beauty mark' on the white part of her face. It was very pronounced, as were the black lines outlining the transition between the white and tan on her face, and all of these black areas have faded significantly over the last 10 weeks. The beauty mark is still present, though, and I like it! By the way, she is an AKC puppy, with a long pedigree of almost entirely champions, so I'd not worry about markings in your Corgi's white areas.
