Best Answer

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 also 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.Rate This Answer

How does polygenic inheritance diifer from mendelian inheritance?

Well polygenetic inheritiance are traits that is controlled by multiple genes, so for one trait you may have more than two gene controlling it, human eye is an example. For polygenetic inheritance you cannot do a pedigree and calculated the percentage. For mendelian inheritance it all about two alleles for one trait where one is definetly more dominant over the other, it is much simpler than the polygenic trait and can be calculated through a pedigree.
