New wolf!

Post by TheOnlyTherian » Sun Mar 25, 2018 6:41 pm

I need advice on this. I'm wanting to make a family tree for my own pack but I'm wondering what colour should my pups be?
Should I follow the father's darker colour pelt, since it's mostly dominated by the gene or the mother's pelt colour?

It's quite confusing and it would help a lot if someone can explain it to me, especially for future wolves when I do create a family tree for them.

This is a good question!
I'm currently doing the same thing for my wolf, here's what I did
My wolf is pitch black
His fathers family was white, tan, and grey
While his mothers family was mostly black, brown, and dark tan.
Usually the darker fur colors dominate the lighter ones, and it depends on if your basing your pups fur colors on when they were real young or older, because wolf pups are born black, dark brown, and other dark colors. (So the white pup in WQ is kinda unrealisc, sorry WQ!)
Sometimes (if the genes strong enough) lighter colors can wash down darker ones into a lighter version.
most often the dominant gene, dark or light, over powers the other.
I hoped this helped!

A little confused but I will get there somehow. The mother is the lightest and the father is the darkest, not black but like a greyish colour. So, I think I will go in between and just see how it goes?

Frodo1 made a great puppy inheritance chart here. I recommend using that if you're planning to make new amethyst mountain files for your pups to simulate them "growing up", if that's what you're going for.

Helped a lot!
I had a look and I could see that the pups do go similar with O-1 or LC-4 or LC-5. Guess I'd go far a mixture and follow both of the parent's gene or maybe more of the father's coat colours. Wolves do change fur coat colours slightly over time and also within age too.
