AKC standards are Wheaten, Red Wheaten and Light Wheaten (tan or red color) with either a black or brown (liver) nose and sometimes a black mask. Although it has been known that there can be a genetic throwback that can produce a RR with black hairs, they typically are not black. This is not considered "desirable" by breed standards.
