Puzzling White Dogs

The dogs on this page are all rescues. They have varying amounts of white, but all have normal looking pupils, and apparently perfect vision. We think they are Pattern Whites (rather than double merles), but since we don't know anything about their parents, we can't say for certain.

(Remember, all pictures with blue borders are links.)

We are interested in collecting more pictures of dogs that might be pattern whites (these are dogs where the parents are unknown, but don't show any signs of being double merles). If you have some that you would like to share, please let us know!
