Avongara Jini of Brushy Run with puppies

Hi,

a few pics I´d liked to share 🙂

The mother is the red one, Avongara Jini of Brushy Run "Jini"
and the father is Brindle, Rathje Wa Na Nafasi "Nafasi"

Their pups were born 2006-11-19 an all brindle litter of 6 pups (3 boys and 3 girls)

What a great bunch of pups!

Cute puppies. Our litters are cousins. I got to visit Bev before all of Jini's littermates and half siblings had left for their new homes last March. Very cute puppies.

Very sweet! What beautiful dogs and puppies you have!

What a beautiful family of B's 😃

What a beautiful bunch of Brindles…..thanks for posting.

Nice to find this forum! 🙂

Here's a pic of one of this litter's pups, now near 8 months old. Our darling Taariq.


Taariq loves playing in the sandbox.

Love the mirror picture! How adorable!

how common is it to have an entire litter of brindles?

Wonderful pups.

I know one dog that had a red, a black & white like the mom, and a tri, like dad- one of every color but brindle!

It depends on what genes the parents carry. If both are homozygous for Brindle, which means each parent inherited a copy of brindle from *their parents, then all the puppies will be brindle. If both parents are heterozygous for brindle (meaning they look brindle, but only have one gene for it) there may be brindles and reds. And if only one parent is brindle you could still have a litter that is all brindles, or mixed brindle and red.

That isn't even touching the other colors.

So, I guess to answer your question…no, it isn't all that common to have a litter of all brindles.

I think that is right, hopefully Lisa or Robyn will jump in and correct me if I am wrong.

Jasper came from an all brindle litter. Mom was a red, Dad was a brindle.

Oh, I just looked at the parents again, so mom is red, and dad is brindle. I would guess that he is probably homozygous for brindle…so the odds are increased that there would be more brindles, than if he was hetro for brindle.

I know of at least one breeder that bred two brindles together and only got reds.

Does that sound right Lisa?

I find it all very confusing to be honest.😕

And here is one of Jini's daughters - Twigas Thimba aka Elsa at age of + 8 months. She resides in Finland, and is very much beloved of Dakarai Basenjis 🙂

Upps…got only reds??? Is that possible?

Beautiful B's dakarai…...and welcome!

@dakarai:

Yes. Two brindles bred together can produce reds. Two reds bred together cannot produce brindles.

Quercus is correct about homozygous brindles (carries 2 genes for brindle). If both parents are homozygous brindles, there will only be brindle puppies. If both parents are heterozygous brindles (only one gene for brindle each) or if one parent is red and the other brindle then both brindles and reds, or a whole litter of either color, are possible.

(This assumes that there are no other colors/patterns in the equation other than brindle and red.)

Lovely dogs!
How lucky you are to own them.
