Australian Mist (or Spotted Mist) basic information
A breed of average size, the body is of medium length and width, and it is hard and muscular. The males are generally a bit larger than the females, with more muscular and stronger facial characteristics. The chest is broad and the legs are proportionate with dark rings. The hind legs are slightly longer than the forelegs. The tail is long and thick, also with dark rings, and tapering slightly near the end. The ears are wide and set low against the head, tilting forward slightly. The eyes are large and wide, appearing in various shades of green, which range from bright green to chartreuse to aquamarine. The coat is short and dense, with symmetrical spots of any number of sizes and patterns across the sides of the body, the flanks and the stomach. The colors of the coat vary in shades of brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, gold and peach. The name "Mist" comes from the misty background color of the coat, because the more pronounced spots set it off.
