Flashy or Not?

What is the difference between Flashy and semi-flashy? I am just trying to figure out the best way to describe my baby, Brutus. His mussel is white, he has a white stripe up is face(between his eyes) to the top of his head. His front two legs are white and it extends to his chest and around his neck, although the back upper half of his front legs are brindle. His back to paws are white 1/3 of the way up, but the rest of him is brindle. I would appreciate any help on the matter. Thanks

If the white goes all around his neck, and the muzzle is white I would think he would be considered flashy.

I've seen a chart somewhere (don't know where now) that showed that the plain can have anything from no white at all to a bit of white - on feet, chest, face and a little bit on the back of the neck. Flashy can go from where the high end of plain ends to 1/3 white, the more flashy the more white around the collar it looked like to me. I think the semi-flashy would be the higher end of plain to the lower end of flashy. Your dog is flashy and sounds absolutely beautiful.

Sounds flashy to me!
Always nice to hear about another Brutus
There is also another person who posts a lot with a Brutis. Brutus is a great name for a boxer.

My Bru is fawn with similar marking to yours. I consider him flashy.
