Geneticists & Breeders have long been aware of several locations of chromosomes (loci), which are responsible for the color patterns we see in dogs. Each locus has 2 sides. Every puppy inherits one copy of each locus from Mom & one of each from Dad. This is true of ALL genetic traits. Each of these loci is responsible for one or more traits, either independently, or in conjunction with another locus. The simple rendition below can be applied to any single loci, such as the B loci.

This ends our Color basics lessons. To go further would require a complete site dealing with this topic only. We here at Rare Bulldogs, hope that this has helped you to get a foundation start to learning about Color DNA. Please visit our other Color DNA Pages, as we have a wealth of information here on each color. The links are at the top of this page. We recomend that you do further research on DNA Educational sites, shoud you need to go further in your knowledge.
