There are thirteen + different locations or loci on the chromosomes that have a combined effect to determine the color of a particular dog. At each locus, there can be found many variations or alleles that can be dominant or recessive in nature. Chromosomes come in pairs, so each dog has two different alleles at each locus on the chromosome pairs, and depending on the dominance of the alleles contained at the locus determines the color of the individual dog. The genetic material of the dog is inherited one half from the mother and one half from the father. The final characteristics of the offspring is determined by the new combination that results and the dominance, recessive nature, & hierarchy of the alleles that they inherit.
We have used UC Davis for many years and recommend them above all other labs for color testing. The Results in the Charts below uses UC Davis' letter system. Other labs have different lettering systems, which is very important to differentiate. CREDITS: The reading and results in the chart, are predominantly excerpts from the UCDavis Website.
