What kind of inheritance is it when the offspring have spots of different colors from its parents? Like a brown dog with a white dog makes a white/brown spotted dog.
In dogs, spots of brown are controlled by the S locus, the brown spots on white indicate piebald inheritance.
Notice that the color, the shade, the hair tinting at the base, the spotting, and markings are all controlled by different genetic loci.
