Marsagan Labradors is extremely diligent in making sure our progeny are not bred from parents that can produce puppies that are affected with inheritable diseases. To help us achieve this, we have our breeding stock DNA profiled by Orivet Genetics. Many of the diseases that present themselves in the Labrador breed are auto recessive which means that in order for the disease to be present it needs two copies of the affected gene, one from the sire and one from the dam.
The breeding outcomes shown in the diagrams below represent what are the expected outcomes (average) when mating NORMAL, CARRIER and AFFECTED animals. The outcomes are based on Mendelian genetics that states each individual has two factors for each trait, one from each parent. Some of the outcomes below may vary due to the probability of inheritance not being equal.
Labradors come in 3 basic colours. If you would like to know more about Labrador coat colours and how they are inherited click the link below...
