black great dane puppy?

After a lot of searching in my area I finally found someone relatively close with a black female Great Dane puppy for sale. I immediately jumped at the chance. I can't see her for two weeks though because my parents will not make a special trip to view her. We're waiting untill we have another reason. Which is fine. The guy told me she is black with white on her chest and toes. Which I see all the time. But I guess she also has white on her nose/muzzle. And he swears she is not mantle. I've searched all over the internet and I can't find a black Great Dane with white on its nose. Anyone have any links or personal pictures I can see?
Fetch: great danes can still be classified as "black" and have white on them
ive just never seen one classified as black with white on its nose
Dog Pro:dont worry. im also taking into account its pedigree and what health problems the parents have. i just have no questions about those issues. i only had a question about color.

i would like a female because my current dog is an old neutered male and would get totally dominated by a young unaltered male.

i want black because……i want black. its as simple as that. is there a reason i should settle for a color id rather not have?

~ If he doesn't call her a Mantle Great Dane, then what name does he call it. A Mantle is black and white.

Here are some Mantle Danes.

What is good about this dog? What made you decide on a very specific color and breed? What is the pedigree like, and what health clearances do the parents have? Danes can have various health problems that are really no fun.

Worry about that, not the color of the dog. Yes, they can be all black, but white markings are not desirable, not good for show dogs.

i really dont get why you want a black female great dane so bad. i could see why if you wanted just a great dane but why does it have to be a black female. and they can have a white nose! they can have any kind of marking!

Hmmm here is a picture of a Black dane with white chest and nose. But I'm not sure if its because of age

Umm here is another picture but I'm not quite sure if its white or just a glow from the camera shot.

I'm no expert of Great danes but I'm pretty familiar with dogs, and really sounds like she's mantle, I mean with the white feet, chest, nose…. Do black Danes cost more than mantles? If so I wouldn't buy this puppy, if their the same, why not get a mantle, great danes are beautiful none the less.

If the dog had white, then it has white. It can still be classified as black. If you want one with absolutely no markings it will probably have more potential as a show dog and therefore be more expensive.

Hello, white is VERY common on black great danes. Most have some on their chests, toes or behind their feet, but white on a nose is not un heard of.

If you have an interest in asking dane questions of Dane breeders, please feel free to join The Great Dane Today, a yahoo group.
