Color Suggestions
For brindle dog, use an ombre with a high black/gray or brown/tan content. Pair this with tan points and a brown or black patch.
For a ticked dog, use an ombre with a high white content. Pair with white or tan points and a patch shade to match the ombre (ex. Rust/Red or Blue/Gray)
Solid colors will also work nicely.
