I imagine she will shed in spring if she develops a true winter coat, which she may not as she lives in Dallas. She is only 8 months old (Chris?) now so we will have to wait. I know the northernmost one of Ataika's pups, a male, develops almost this much coat on his legs in winter.
Apparently all 5 litter mates were similar in coat and disposition, but two were (brindled?) gray.
The couple who owns her thought she looked taigan but wanted us to see her--- they only knew about taigans from us (Chris knows tazis well, as he is a friend of son Jackson's (Peculiar), and has been around tazis since his teens).
We will probably feature reports on "Bisy" as she grows older. She is coming out to run with us in the fall.
Incidentally the one breeder of real old- style fierce Afghans we know said that a some Afghans (not hers) were bred to poodles to "improve" them (?!) in the fifties.
