Nope. Any alleles that dilute the top color to white also dilute the bottom to white. So the mouse would BE a white tan, but you couldn't see the tan and wouldn't know.

But that would look so cool if it were possible!

You can breed silver tans and they are very pale. The tan isn't that strong compared to varieties like black and chocolate though.

i was just thinking that same thing yesterday! and then i thought it would be really cool if instead of a white tan, the tan part was black so it would be a white mouse with a black stomach haha. i think that would look awesome!

maybe you could get a broken tan with mostly white markings and just very minimal color?

i had a thick moment with one of my last litters, the Choc and Champagne pups were tanned, and i was shocked to see the PEW and BEWs not, then i almost slapped myself when i just realised what just went through my head :lol:
It would look very cool though!

Mike Chiodo has had "extreme doves" (ae/ae p/p) I think. They're really dark doves. I don't think that's what you meant, though? :p

yeah, its an earthy smell, a bit like a horse or a reindeer.
If you have any goats milk, then they smell quite a bit like that =D
