    I picked up this girl gonna work with her some and see what comes out of her but at the moment i'm a bit stumped... What is she?

    It is female, but no breast spots makes me think the Manchurian gene is involved. but aside from that i got nothing, her coloring is weird... there are aspects of golden, normal pharaoh and Tibetan all in one, not quite sure what to make of her. I think I might try her on a Manchurian male for now, then idk?

    From the pictures, comparing them with other photos at this site, it looks like an Italian Speckled that could be crossed with something else; my guess is one of the Tuxedo lines.
    I hope your family member is doing well, and welcome back,
