Judi it sounds like Marley hit the jackpot, with getting a hidden chocolate gene in the midst of all those reds and blacks! Congrats to you!Lucky Me said:He is blue, but carries famous red lines, as well as one of the 3 chocolates tested by PID, and melanistic mask.
He also has 15 champs in his 6 gen. pedigree, the lab side strong with field champions...good for those that hunt with their doodles.
Does that give him any extra points? What is the average stud fee for a dog like Marley? :?
Perhaps you could let me know Tod after having made all those calls.... Thanks!!
My first Poodle, Sheba is BbEe and I had no idea how lucky I was, in getting that combo! So you are right, Marley will give the right females a rainbow litter!
I also believe that you should disclose to an prospective breeders that Marley has field trial champions in his background so that you attract the right crowd, possibly intereseted in hunting.
thanks everyone!! You have been a helpful, confirming voice!
by the way, I'm in the process of co-ownership of a Miniature Poodle here in CO from wonderful lines if anyone is ever looking for a red Miniature male for stud service! He's not born yet, but I am so thankful to have found this Miniature Poodle breeder! Email me if you are curious.
