Buff is a common color in many areas. As the colour has good camouflage qualities in the natural environment in dry climates where sand and soil are often buff-coloured, it is also widespread in the animal kingdom. The word buff appears in the name of several species with this color, such as the Buff-breasted Sandpiper and the Buff-bellied Pipit.The flags of the United States states of Delaware and New Jersey include the colour buff.The U.S. Army's Institute of Heraldry has, innovatively, included buff as a tincture in some of its coats of arms. This is because buff is the traditional color of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps.The colors of athletic team uniforms at George Washington University and Hamilton College are buff and blue.Buff is a commonly used grout pigment in masonry.



The fawn color is mistaken sometimes to be blue. These are very different genes. The fawn color is achieved by breeding together dogs that carry the dilution gene either in it's homozygous or heterozygous form, and the chocolate gene. Black to black, or black to red, or red to red, or a black to blue, or blue to red can produce a fawn colored offspring. The fawn color is the result of two recessive genes, therefore,the pup could be affected with Alopecia (a skin condition). Not all are, but many do have some form of a skin or coat condition.It is HIGHLY unadvisable to ever breed a fawn to another fawn. The color can be achieved by breeding the darker colors with correct gene pairing,so there is no need to take a chance by breeding together two recessive genes.
