|mehpenn||I'm really intriged by the brindle pattern, and other "odd" patterns... as long as they're acceptable to the breed standard. I'm not a fan of white dogs, or the livers or blues, but have seen an occasional Panda that I think is striking.|

|carmspack||just like with the whites years ago which were quietly left to expire , or homed on the side for fear of being accused of mixing - or detracting from their stud or dams bloodlines --- there may have been pups born with this odd color . not too long ago the same phenomenon with the appearance of the "panda" color . Go to the von Stephanitz tome and see what the regional working herding dogs were like that in some way are included in the genetics , even if remote . They include a merle , and a panda - type (don't like that name) . Genes never get expunged , they get buried . They never go away.|

Then you have the puppy mills and their registries. If they thought they could make a buck...
Then the UKC and that type of registry.
No papers puppies.
Puppies born in other countries.
I believe we are following the same logic martemchick.
I THINK in horses they test for dominant black so that you will see studs advertised: Homozygous Black coat color genetics explained

|carmspack||dominant black is rare in itself.|

dominant black is not the same as breeding two recessive blacks (normal) exclusively. The gene will still be recessive.
We had this attempt at dominant black on the forum with a no interest http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ant-black.html
