Sounds like they're breeding with the possibility of producing ALBINOS (although they're calling them "cream")...doubt that's going to get them too much help or congrats here, either.i hope your dog is really older than 6 months and if so they have both been health tested.,
If not then i dont think you will have much help or congratulations here
I wasn't aware that the UK Kennel Club recognised albinos as valid dobermann colour...if the kc recognise the colour then the problem is??
I don't believe the Kennel Club there has ANY DQ's for anything. I know at least one albino doberman was shown, oh, maybe 10 years ago...although it's critique wasn't very positive.I wasn't aware that the UK Kennel Club recognised albinos as valid dobermann colour...
Not according to this:i dont think albino is recognised in the uk
yeah thats the bit i found when double checking. I have never seen one around thats for sure.Not according to this:
Definite black, brown, blue or fawn (Isabella) only, with rust red markings. Markings to be sharply defined, appearing above each eye, on muzzle, throat and forechest, on all legs and feet and below tail. White markings of any kind highly undesirable.
What was your goal, in deciding to breed this litter?hi all we have just had r bitch covered last week she was covered 3 times in all we r hoping for a coloured litter,as with this mating there is a chance of a 25% split (cream,blue,black and tan,fawn) but it is down to old mother nature on that lol and the lines are dobernar doberman lines both mum and dad so should be some good pups if all go's well,we r very excited about this as this will be r first and last litter.we will keep you all updated on this through out (kind of on line blog lol)
yes they doI wasn't aware that the UK Kennel Club recognised albinos as valid dobermann colour...
What reason do you having for breeding your bitch? What is her value to breed? Is she a champion in performance or conformation? How is she worthy of being bred? Why would you want people to have puppies with skin and coat problems by intentionally trying to breed dilutes?
Not according to the Oct 2009 update to the KC standard:
Blue and fawn Dobes are genetically prone to coat problems known as Color Dilution Alopecia (CDA). They have thin coats which are dull and dry due to poor hair shafts and hair regrowth.why all of a sudden will these pups have skin conditions and as i said there is a chance of CREAM no certanty of any colour just a chance both dogs r health checked and cum from very good lines in uk
Most of the time, breeding is done between 2 black/red Dobes and there is no exclusion of those that carry the dilution gene. So, the possibility that a puppy inherits the dilution gene is present if both parents carry it. This is due to the small gene pool of Dobermans and excluding any Dobes that carry the dilution gene will only hurt the breed more. Occasionally, there are dilutes with outstanding qualities (e.g. conformation) has been bred to another dog which does not carry the dilution gene and thereby, reducing the chances of dilute offsprings.No idea why anyone would want to breed a dog that wlll have these issues on purpose.
