White Spotting Gene

The white spotting gene causes white spots or blazes on chests, faces, toes, or tips of tails on colored dogs.
The white spotting gene is NOT the same gene responsible for solid whites! White GSDs may tend produce puppies with white
on them because you wouldn't be able to tell if the white parent had a white spotting on them.
There are also various white spotting genes completely separate from PANDA Shepherds! Just because a dog has white spotting or
a white blaze on the face does NOT make it a "Panda".
Whites with "Birthmarks"
SureFire's Mark of Zorro ~ Photo courtesy of Rhonda McMahan, SureFire Shepherds
The cause of black birthmarks on white dogs is unknown., but it does seem to be inherited and run in certain lines.
Markis is out of a black & cream saddle patterned dam and a nearly solid black bi-color sire.
His black "splash" extends around to the inside of his leg also.

Many whites have only a small freckle or spot (anywhere on the dog), like this puppy. Both parents are white with no birthmarks, but sire has very black pigment.
