What color are these puppies???

So a friends dog just had puppies on Boxing Day and I happen to be farm sitting so was here for the birth.

The Female is PB German Shepard, your typical saddleback colored shepard and the male is PB Maremma who is snow white.

The pups look brindle but, i'm sure they can't be cause I thought they had to have one brindle parent to produce brindle pups? I'm guessing maybe as they grow they will turn sable?? Some have darker faces so I would assume some sables with a black mask? and ONE black pup out of a liter of 6.

Photos are of puppies at 3 days old.

Oh, those are brindle and very nice also. The sire will be ee red (the reason why ee red dogs look white in some breeds hasn't been determined yet) which will mask brindle so, he will be the culprit.

The black pup could be either dominant black or recessive black. If dominant black then the sire would be KBKbr. With one pup getting dominant black and the others getting brindle.

The white of the marrema is a "masking" his true color so we don't know what he is hiding, though the pups do tell us part of the story. As admin indicated he has to be the carrier of the brindle. You can read more at http://abnormality.purpleflowers.net/gen...

Thanks Everyone!. I had NO

Thanks Everyone!. I had NO idea that the white was just a 'masking' of something else. VERY interesting! Guess that's why there were no white pups!...

This has proved to be quite interesting in color genetics for dogs! :)
