Question Black-and-tan

black-and-tan: having a predominantly black color pattern with deep red or rusty tan usually on the feet, breeching, and cheek patches, above the eyes, and inside the ears
(From the Merriam-Webster.com)

How would you say this in Spanish?

¿Negro y pardo?

¿Negro y pardo rojizo?

¿Negro y castaño rojizo?

Yes, the airedales...
I've seen "negro y fuego", but while "fuego" in Spanish is "red like a flame" (rojo como el de una llama), it seems a little bit too much for the actual rusty brown of the airedale...

Negro y herrumbre, recuerdo haber oído por allí, y a veces rojo herrumbre (pero es de oídas -y no de "escribidas"-)

Un vecino que cuida perros me dijo "negro y castaño", pero dudó después de decirlo.

Lo de "castaño" me suena más común... que el "rojo herrumbroso"...
