Black & White/Dominant Black (K)

Depending on what genes the black and white parent is carrying will determine the coat colors of the puppies. Short of having a genetic test run for all the different coat colors, a breeder can usually determine most of the genes carried by breeding the black and white parent to either a black and tan or tri-color mate.

Along with the Dominant Black gene, it is possible for the dog to carry the sable (ayay or ayat) gene, black and tan (atat), recessive clear sable and more.
