    Default Emmitt x Patton daughter pup with Bolo spots

    Picked up my pup today and to my surprise he has prominent bolo spots on the back of his front paws and white hair in the pads of his hind paws. Two white toenails on different feet.
    No worries, just an interesting observation.
    Breeder said three in the litter of ten had similar markings.

    Good luck with the new pup Jerry. On paper, looks like it will be a good one!

    Every pup in my dog Berkley's litter (NAFC Hook x FC AFC Pirate daughter) had white on the backside of their front paws and some on the back feet. Berkley has sire about 50 pups and many of them have the same white on the back side of the front paws.

    I've been told it's a pretty good indicator of the ylw factor being present.

    My pup has bolo marks. Barracuda blue is on dams side and Roux on sire's side. I was worried at first but I've heard both of these dogs have produced these markings so I'm hoping its a good thing.

    My FC Moses pup has bolo marks on the backside of her front paws. A few from that litter did.

    I bet we have one of the other two.
