Are dogs completely colorblind, or can they see other colors besides black and white?

Dogs see on a greyscale and are colorblind, does that include every color on the color spectrum?

Dogs can see other colors but not as many as humans and the colors are not as rich. In tests, dogs see mainly yellows, blues and greys. Red or orange is difficult for a dog to see and may appear as a very dark grey or black. So skip the red toys - they are that color to please you.
