Color code

The four most common color code for golden shaded BSH are: NY (black golden), BY (chocolate golden), AY (Blue golden), and CY (lilac golden). Generally speaking, the genes that control the inheritance of these types of coat colors are mainly two kinds of brown gene (B-b) and dilution gene (D-d). In addition to the coat color genetic gene, there is also a wide-band-gene (wide-band-gene) that controls the width of the ring band on the hair shaft, which produces common 11 12 colors and 25 colors. 11 colors: the shadow color accounts for 1/4 of the total hair, 12 colors are less black than 11 colors, about 1/8 of the hair, 25 colors will still have black in the second half of the hair, so presents 4 segments of color.

NY is a more common golden shaded color, where n stands for blcak and y stands for golden

BY, B stands for chocolate, y stands for golden. Compared with NY, BY looks more golden in coat color, lighter color on paw pad than ny, and has a brown tail tip.

AY, where a stands for blue and y stands for golden. AY is blue-gray in appearance, and the undercoat is golden. The dilution gene of AY is because of the recessive homozygous dd genotype, so the genotype of ay is BBdd or Bbdd.

CY is another level of dilute color relative to AY. The color is lavender, which is lighter than AY. The genotype of CY can only be bbdd
