Is my pup belton?

I've been reading all sorts of stuff here on coat colors and found some useful posts on the belton coat color. When was was combing my pup tonight after her bath I noticed some black markings in her white parts and I was wondering if this is the belton that people are talking about. She definitely is developing more of this as she ages (she's almost 6 months old). She is mostly black with light tan (almost white) markings. I'll post some photos below. I'm trying to figure out what she will look like when she's mature.

The first 3 photos show her chin and her paws. The last one shows her white bum because I think it's the cutest puppy bum ever.

I don't think so. With Belton markings, the black hair comes out of definite spotting on the skin. Your puppy looks like a black and tan with white markings. It looks like she just has some uneven edges to her markings. I could be wrong, but that what it looks like from your photos.

I hope you're right. I love her regardless of what color she becomes but i was hoping she wouldn't turn to "salt and pepper". I'm in complete amazement looking at photos of pups that turn into adults that are totally different colors!

FWIW, Halle has some black skin spots in her white parts - no black hairs, just black spotting here and there. Not a lot, either.... she was originally a black & white parti - no telling what her adult color will end up being <G>. I'm learning to be patient, something I'm not really good at!

Rosie with puppy cut. Notice the Belton or ticking. One of the pictures is a mistake, but don't know which one so ignore.
