Clear Sable & White (ee)

Depending on what genes the clear sable 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 clear sable and white parent to either a black and tan or tri-color mate. When bred to another clear sable English Shepherd, all puppies will be clear sable.

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

Noses can fade out to a tan/pinkish color or remain black.
