I am confusing myself! We have picked the litter our puppy is coming from. I am just curious and learning about genetics and trying to figure out how likely it is to get long-haired puppies. (I've had college level genetics...so I am all too familiar with punnet squares!).
This all the info I have on the dam.....she is a red sable. She is short haired. Her grandmother is long haired, grandfather was short haired. Her mother was short haired, and her father was short haired. I have no idea about the recessive long hair gene in her parents.
The father is a black sable long hair. That's all I know right now....besides good health and temperment
All the puppies in the litter are sable. Some dark, some light, but all sable.
Now I read on a website (that I cant find now) that if a dam throws all sable puppies....she has to be homozygous for short hair (not carrying long hair gene). I have no idea if this is true or if its only true if they are bred to a non-sable and throw sables. I wish I could find the site that said that again.
Anyways, what chance would give each pup to be long haired based on that? I know I dont have complete info, sorry.
The puppies are almost 2 weeks old...so we'll know for sure in a few weeks.
