Coat color and pattern is a polygenic trait, meaning it is controlled by more than one gene or gene complex. A dog with the gene for black color expression may als…o have the gene for suppression of black and so have a red or yellow coat. Or a dog with the brindle gene may have one or more of the genes for large areas of white and so have little or no brindle coloring visible. A dog with the dominant black gene may have genes for color fading and appear gray or merle.
Polygenic traits occur because of genes and environment. There are usually two or more genes involved in these traits. It also takes into consideration where the organism …lives, for example the fact that some hotter areas have a history of people with darker skin tones.
