Not really bloodline related...What is the difference between brindle and reverse brindle? I have a couple of brindle dogs but lately I have been hearing reverse brindle and don't really know what that means.

Ok here goes if i can try and explaine this...
there is no actual gene for reverse brindle.. Alot of people like to to call the dogs that are predominatly black or blue with faint fawn/red brindling reverse brindles.. it is all the same gene just expressing it's self differently .. here are some examples from my yard for you..
This is Hoover she is BRINDLE
this is Dawn she is what people would call REVERSE Brindle or BLACK Brindle which she is neither she is actually just brindle
here is Huck he is BLUE Brindle
Here is Piper she would be what is considered REVERSE blue brindle
now again i STRESS BRINDLE IS BRINDLE it can be Blue, red or black but it is all just a gene and there is no reverse brindle gene it is just the way the brindle gene decides to express it's self on the dog.

IMO reverse brindle is an incorrect term.
When looking at colors you say the dominant or underlying color then brindle. So a dog that is black with striping is Black brindle . Fawn with striping is fawn brindle etc
There is no option for reverse brindle listed on the litter reg form http://www.adbadog.com/uploads/pdf%20forms/colors.pdf
You can see this right on the APBT color charts. This should help you more ADBA: http://www.adbadog.com/p_gallary.asp?aid=5 UKC: http://www.apbtconformation.com/colors.htm AKC color chart http://www.amstaffnetwork.org/colors.htm
