Angente

Breed: Angente Brun
Description: This breed is exactly the same as the blue except the color is brown.

It is not a well-known color and is rarely seen now. It was brought into England around the 1920’s from France. Its unpopularity made it very rare indeed. In 1941 it was recreated by H.D. Dowie. Dowie did this by crossing cremes with blues, which produced silvered agoutis.

The agoutis were mated to Havanas and produced silvered blacks. When these were mated amongst themselves, they produced the argente brun. Brown Beverens have since been used to improve the coat qualities of the contemporary brun.
