Widows Peak in Old Family Red Nose Strain.

(1/1)

D.M. Norrod:
Whether you want to refer to them as smut or widows peak, I'm still waiting for anyone to show me a dog or a line of dogs which carried this trait from any of the old noted OFRN breeders.
 Hemphill, Wallace, McCoy, Williams, DeCordvas, Trice, Cole, Corcoran, Feeley, Shipley, etc. NONE had this colorization in their dogs.
 It is not standard in the strain of Old Family Red Nose.

UC Davis of CA.

 "Grizzle (also called domino) is a pattern of dark pigment (eumelanin) on the dorsal surface of the head, body and tops of the legs; light pigment (pheomelanin) is present on the lower legs, undersides and up the face around the eyes. The distinctive face pattern is often referred to as a widow’s peak. This variant has only been seen in Afghan and Saluki hounds. Grizzle can only be expressed when the Dominant black gene is not present (N/N) and the agouti gene is at/at."

Take note:
"Grizzle can only be expressed when the Dominant black gene is not present"
