    Analyses Goal #1 - Page 3 Yes, it's on a Cocker Spaniel site, but I think it's still relevant. In 2010, the American Spaniel Club conducted a study on the Merle coloration. The entire study is fascinating, but this part really jumped out at me. "Finding the mutation was identical in each...

    Obviously I understand that most pit bull/ bully enthusiasts are anti merle for reasons (opinions) of inpurity. I also understand the health risks of merle/merle breedings and am not promoting them.I am curious though, the LUA Dalmatians were crossed with German Shorthair Pointers and were bred...

    So I end up being surprised with a puppy. She's a Champaign color pit but now her spots are starting to show even more. I would've loved to do shows with her but many shows say you need to be registered. I know I cant because UKC wont accept her. Are there any other shows that might allow her...

    Finally, i'm done with Madison! This is a quick ref of Madison of Rascal's Pibble Club. It's a club that speaks for itself; it's for Pit Bulls. The club is a partner of Go Puppy, so he's basically a member of Go Puppy, just the Pibble version. They desired more attention so they got their own...

    I know you shouldn't bred for color, but is there color ethics connected to pits like there are Danes? you know, it's okay for matings between blacks, harliquins and blues, and then fawns to brindles. But not okay to breed across the color line. Merles are not to be bred- no exceptions. And...

    Frankly the thought of the general public doubling as geneticists scares me :eek: Heres a little more info on the unfriendly merle gene: Both heterozygous merle and homozygous double merle dogs may exhibit auditory and ophthalmic abnormalities including mild to severe deafness, increased...
