Q: What color is "buff"?

I recently took my new dog Lola to my vet and I brought along her old records from a previous owner. I noticed on the "color" portion of her records, her previous vet called her color "buff". When I took her to get a new licence, the clerk had never heard of this color either. I've never heard of this color for a dog, or any animal for that matter. I thought she was apricot. What color is she, and does "buff" exist?

Yes, the color is tan. Hence the phrase 'in the buff' - without clothes, ie: skin color.

I always thought of "buff" as similar to tan, but it is usually described as a "pale yellowish-brown"....which is still kind of tan! It exists if/when we say it exists....
