It's an interesting question. I don't know that the phenotype will always express as a straight mix. I.e, if you breed a long backed male to a short backed female, I don't know if that phenotypically would show in the puppies as a correct length body. Phenotypically you may get a mix if long and short backed puppies.
Some genes don't express the same way. But I am not totally sure the genetics between all that stuff.
Would love some breeders to chime in about stuff like that.
