Coat color inheritance


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I know of a breeding that took place...a sable, medium coated female with a smooth (not slick) black & white male. Anybody have any ideas what colors &/or coat types might appear in the pups? No real reason other than we are curious.

It's hard to say without more information.


Half should be smooth coated (smooth is dominant to rough), unless the stud is homozygous and can only produce smooth pups. The rest can be rough or medium coated.


Depending on the genetics behind the stud, you might get black and white, sable or plain tri color. You might get other recessive colors if they are carried by both parents like red or blue.


Are you getting a puppy? B)
