Default Can a Basset Hound be this color?

This almost looks like a yellow/golden color. What do you think? Supposed to be an AKC Basset pup.

There are tricolour bassets (litter mates) in the background so although to me, having no white, other than a tiny bit on the muzzle and from what I can see, top of the head?, is odd, I guess it's not impossible. Registration however, is taken on trust, so being registered with the official KC of the country of birth, isn't necessarily 'gospel'. And mum could have been caught by another non-basset, on the same season!! It's interesting to so often see a mix involving a Basset, meaning the offspring have long ears and a long back, with short legs!!

Add - Breed Standards call for 'any recognised hound colour'. That to me, isn't necessarily that.

nothing wrong with the color. Given the nature of puppy coat color it will likely darken as it matures, Solid or nearly solid color dogs are not that rare in the breed.

Solid black or red isn't rare, but what is, is not to have ANY white underneath, which it looks as if is the case with this puppy? And we've already discussed not having any white on the tail at all which for me, doesn't make for a 'recognised hound colour', the white tip (for the benefit of others here) being pretty essential when hunting with a hound in dense undergrowth.

I'm afraid I'd be very suspicious about the origins of that puppy, genetically.

Every other puppy in the litter has normal basset coats. Most of them are tricolors. I attached a picture of the parents.

OK. Obviously that colouring comes from the bigger of the two pictured (dad?).

No white at all is unusual, but I do see it occasionally in hunting Bassets.

1. the dog question is not solid color certainly white on muzzle appear to be a place on the head and at least a couple white toes

2. [quote]the white tip (for the benefit of others here) being pretty essential when hunting with a hound in dense undergrowth.[quote] from someone with little to know field or hunting experience,
a. If it were essential it would be part of the breed standard it is not,
b. white tip being an aid is more myth than fact.

d"No white at all is unusual, but I do see it occasionally in hunting Bassets"
