Default Puppy Coat Question--

If both a pups parents were black and tan, or black and red saddle-backs, how likely is it that the pups would be blanket-backs? I went to see some pups today and was just curious. It's not at all a deal breaker of course if he does come out a blanket-back, but as of right now I'm definitely more partial to the saddle-backs.

And sorry if this is in the completely wrong place, I couldn't find where to put a question like this.

Thanks!

You'd need the pedigree to figure out the question best It's not just the parents genetics but the grandparents, etc which play roles

But the easiest and fastest way though, ask the breeder - they should know what they're producing and be able to answer

These are the parents!
Sire: VA Chacco von der Freiheit Westerholt

Dam: V Jermany v Bullinger

Picture of the Dam because it doesn't show her: http://www.bullingershepherds.com/images/jermany.jpg

I gave the breeder a shout today and she's pretty sure he'll be colored like this guy here: http://cdn3.pedigreedatabase.com/gal...ures/46237.jpg

WGSL, every one of those dogs in that pedigree has a saddle back so it would be safe to assume your puppy would also have a saddle back. Pups are very dark when they're younger, the black usually recedes for the black and red WGSL coloration

I agree the chances of him being a classic saddleback are very high, the father is gorgeous! I love the reds
