  Sire
A Agouti +
  The distribution of red/yellow and black pigment. The phaeomelanin (red/yellow) patterns are more dominant than the eumelanin patterns.

Black & Tanatat
Rec. Blackaa
Unknown??
B Brown +
  The expression of eumelanin that determines nose color, either black or brown.
BlackBB
Brownbb
Unknown??
C Chinchilla, Albino +
  The expression of phaeomelanin (red/yellow) and sometimes all pigments, ranging up to white with no pigment. Mutants or true albino is very rare in dogs.
NormalCC
Silvercchcch
Unknown??
D Dilute +
  The dilution of eumelanin, black/brown to blue/lilac. Also includes the dilution of phaeomelanin, red/yellow to cream.
UndilutedDD
Diluteddd
Unknown??
E Extension +
  The expression of eumelanin (black/brown). No expression renders phaeomelanin (red/yellow). No eumelanin renders black/brown. This is the case in recessive red/yellow "e". The effect is epistatic (all covering) over other genes concerning eumelanin (ex A,B,K,M).
MaskedEmEm
NormalEE
Rec. Red/Yellowee
Unknown??
K Black Extension +
  The expression of eumelanin (black/brown) with known alleles that boost eumelanin production. Brindle is expressed in phaeomelanin patches of the coat and allows eumelanin stripes to occur. Is thought to be hypostatic to recessive red/yellow because eumelanin is not expressed then.
Dominant BlackKK
Brindlekbrkbr
Normalkk
Unknown??
M Merle +
  The irregular form of dilution of eumelanin (black/brown). Purebreed merle dogs are impaired, so never breed merle to merle. Merle should also never be bred with white or red/yellow/cream dogs.
MerleMM
Normalmm
Unknown??
S White Spotting +
  The expression of white spotting or the local absence of pigment. White patches around eyes or ears may impair those organs. Small white spots may be expressed in solid dogs.
SolidSS
Irish Spotsisi
Piebald Spotspsp
Extreme Spotswsw
Unknown??
T Ticking +
  The expression of pigment in white spotted areas which can resemble roaning (not covered). Only apparent if a dog has large enough white patches due to white spotting and is most common in hounds.
