    Default Parti-colored labs

    This link was posted on another discussion board. Just think of what the puppy mills would do if they could produce these!

    Pretty dramatically mismarked, but isn't he gorgeous? We had a puppy once many years ago who had a mismark on his back. It looked just like he bumped up under an old truck and got an oil stain. He was a cool dog anyway and still looks like he's been sleeping under an old truck.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Yes, he's a nice looking dog. My guess is he is in Italy. I can't imagine a dog of mine sitting infront of those sausages without staring and drooling once I convinved them they had to sit in the chair.

    Would those be the "New" cattle dog....Mooooo.

    Pretty cute though. Wonder if those are just big boned, or hefty dogs.

    Those type of mis-marks are a "one in a million" shot. Thank goodness. Otherwise, we would be looking at a mass marketing of Mosiac labs for thousands of dollars each. There was a research project done on a mosiac lab to see if those markings could be reproduced, they did not get any mis-marked pups out of any of the litters.
    It is a beautiful dog though, and to be honest, I wouldn't mind having one just for sh!ts and giggles. But I certainly wouldn't shell out more than a hundred bucks for one, no matter the pedigree, especially since it would just be a pet/hunting dog.

    My guess is that this dog could be the result of two sperm impregnating one egg; it certainly doesn't happen very often and is hard to pick up (in people) but would explain the color markings.

    What's not to like...........block head, otter tail. Just kidding. But given the spots or mismarkings what is the history of the Dalmatian?
