Default Where can I find a black dwarf?

I'm looking for a black dwarf, I've seen sites saying they are Russian dwarf, winter white (but black), Campbells and hybrids. If you google "black dwarf hamster" that's basically what I'm after. I'm in the UK. All the shops here in Glasgow have the standard ones mentioned.

1. What is the definite breed for a black/dark coloured dwarf (or can they all come like this)

2. Are there such breeders in the UK?

My hybrid breeder (there are no purebred Winter Whites or Campbell in Canada) told me she doesn’t keep blacks in her breeding program because of health problems. Maybe choose a different color ?

There are only black Campbells dwarf hamsters pure bred in the UK. The other species don't come in black. This colour is however not standardised by the National hamster council (this is when it is bred over several generations to ensure it breeds true and is healthy and a natural mutation) but this is being worked on so you are unlikely to be able to source one at the moment. The hybrids do sometimes pop up in pet shops but you are unlikely to get a pure bred in Scotland at the moment I'm afraid.
