    Default Mixed Colours

    If a mixed coloured is mated with another mixed colour, is there a dominant colour pup produced. IE- Bitch is fawn with a blue belly, Sire is white with brindle patches, obviously the puppies are going to be mixed, but can a particular colour stand out?

    I would think it depends on which colour parent was dominant. Ill use horses as an example. So say you mate a grey('white') with a chestnut, you will always have a fola that is born a dark colour(non grey) and the foal will whiten to grey. Always. This is because grey is a dominant colour. So if im correct, i would say whatever colour is dominant, there would be more pups that colour.

    Yep, It really depends on what breed of animal you have and what their backgrounds are. Genetics are linked to breeds. I breed tibbies and have a sable girl and a black boy they throw black solids and black and white parties because they both have parti gen in their backgrounds and black seems to be the dominant colour in that paring.
    I love genetics its so fun!

    As previously stated it depends on the breed and I don't know SP's at all.

    Then of course what was behind them and so on.

    There are some wonderful websites on dog genetics and colours, fascinating reading, really in depth.

    On the whole black is dominant.

    Take for example; two chocolate Kelpies, will only throw chocolate regardless of the fact that one of their parents is black. A black and a chocolate will probably throw a mixture of solid black and solid chocolate. But sometimes shading will come into the chocolates hinting that there was two tone in their history.

    But in the whippet where any colour goes, they will throw back to their grandparents. So in a nut shell sorry I can't help.

    Yep it seems that brindle and white markings are the only hugly dominant traites for whippets. Although I think blue & fawn may be recesive.
