Well, to say the
least, this has been a surprising litter! After the first
pattern white puppy was born I went straight to the computer to
find out what was going on! I've done quite a bit of
research on aussie color genetics, but hadn't heard of color
headed whites (or pattern whites) out of a merle to tri
breeding. I want to share with you what I found!
Apparently, since Jazz has heavy ticking, this enhances her
chance to throw pattern whites especially when bred to a dog
that carries genes for more white trim as apposed to a dog that
carries for less white. (less white is a more dominant
gene) These dogs are not merle to merle, see her
last litter with Opossum, they had a
normal litter. (actually with little white.) For more info on

An interesting thing I
found on that page... Minus Modifiers Take some time
to look at these pages. They are very interesting!
There is a lot of info about other aussie genetics on there too!
Minus modifiers act to remove pigment. White
toes on Labradors and Dobes are often the result of minus
modifiers acting on an otherwise self colored animal which lacks
any white spotting genes. If a spotting pattern is present, such
as the Irish spotting pattern (or ticking) in most collie
breeds, any minus modifiers present will enhance its effect and
may be responsible for collars and blazes exceeding their
