Colorado Mountain Dog Breed Appearance
The Colorado Mountain Dog is a large dog standing up to 34 inches high, and is well balanced and beautifully proportioned in build. They sport a medium sized chest, strong straight back, and long straight legs with solid well padded paws. Their tail is thick like a plume of longer fur. The coat on the Colorado Mountain Dog is usually white in color, medium in length and nice and soft to the touch. Longer fur on the mane, backs of the legs, and tail is normal, and they often develop a nice undercoat during winter months. During summer, this dense warm coat 'blows' out to leave a thinner cooler coat. The face has a gentle friendly appearance, and is elegant in style. The muzzle is long and gently slopping, with the teeth meeting in a scissors bite. The eyes are what you will be drawn to; they are deep in color, wide set, very alert and expressive. This gentle giant is a beautiful looking dog in a very classical way.
