Re: Bi Color
To the original question, NO breeding a black/tan to a black will not guarantee a Bi-color. The genes don't work that way. IF the black/tan carries Bi as it's recessive, statistically some Bis should occur in the litter and the others will be black/tan. There will be no blacks.
IF the black/tan is homozygous black/tan, all pups will be black/tan. IF the black/tan carries black as it's recessive, statistically half the pups will be black and half will be black/tan.
Black/tans with black recessive often tend to be darker (blanket pattern) black/tans rather than lighter (saddle pattern) black/tans. And some dark black/tans can have such extensive black markings that they can look similar to a Bi, but they are not Bis, they are black/tan.
