She is definitely Russian Based as you can see the heathering on the close up shot.

I would personally say Russian Dove hooded.

How old is she?

She looks like pale BBA to me as well but could be dove with very distinct heathering, can't really make out her belly colour..

looks some sort of blue agouti to me too, doesn't look as dark as my russian blue agoutis were, maybe she's russian dove agouti? Or British Blue agouti although she's pretty light.

I would expect RDA to have much more brown in it - russian cin after all :)

I've bred light British (American style) blue agoutis before and they looked like that. Especially pic 2 on the back, you can see the mix of fawn and blue hairs.

Thank you so much for your replies! :)

The breeder visited me yesterday, and said she looked blue agouti, but she wouldnt say anything for sure as shes not to familiar with the blue tones. But she could say that she is Agouti based.
