E- locus yellow - golden
"unaccepted" by breed standards= as it masks the underlying color - same as golden labs - we like it
- not rocket science to know if the dog is a merle or not...
"irish spotting gene white- this puppy was from known "BLACK TRI"
that was not a phantom merle - was all white w/ blue eyes and can see
and hear just fine - the white markings just got 'overdone".. owners tell
people she is an "irish shepherd" to stop ignorant people from telling
them the dog is deaf- will die.
DOUBLE MERLE WHITE -if get a puppy that looks
like puppy to right from merle to merle breeding - it is likely deaf
these dogs are the result of merle to merle breeding and are
usually DEAF, can have eye problems - we have them
humanely euthanized by our vet when we have tails/dew claws done..
