Black Tri-Color
This black & tan tri-color Dalmatian is an excellent example of where the tan markings are located on a real tri.

Liver Tri-Color
These liver & tan tri-colored Dals are also traditionally marked. Note the pale tan markings on her lower legs and chest area of the first dog and the brighter tan markings on the lower legs of the second dog. The tri pattern is generally not as obvious on a liver Dal, and the shade of tan varies from dog to dog.
