Can anyone point me to any research on GSDs to see if coat color/markings are linked in any way with certain genetic diseases? or cancers?


Thanks!

In GSDs, coat type and color have no genetic links to any health problems. There are other breeds where color/markings are tied into some health problems, such as merlexmerle breedings in some breeds, white Boxers and Dalmatians, isabella Dobermans, etc... but that is not the case with GSDs.
