Wow, what a cutie. I love the markings. I think it could be any of the ones you mentioned as well. Interested as well what others have to say.

He reminds me of a candy cane.

Looks just like my Butters-

You have a dalmation, looks to be halfmoon/delta tail possibly. He may have cellophane in his bloodline as well which is why you are seeing the white body coloration that changes.. my Butters Scotch is the same. :)

The spots are dalmation- and their bodies are normally pinkish to orange in coloration. The spots will most likely change in sizes as he grows.

He's a sweetie :)

wow sweet! i forgot about dalmatian! lol he does look dalmatian. and he was labeled half moon. but he doesn't have as much tail fin as my other half moon. although, he is fairly small/young compared to my others, so maybe he'll fill out.
