I know the answer, but I'm curious what y'all think. Notice that mom is clearly blue but the pups are very dark. What type of dog do you think the dam is?

Plott from an angle. The blue ones are called the Maltese. Used to be they were culled and the buckskins as well. Now they're starting to allow almost 100% black Plotts nowdays. Hard to find a saddleback Plott which was common back then.

Bingo Ted! It's a papered-to-gills Plott. There are indeed blue Plotts, called Maltese. And I've seen more than one Lacy with ears like that /:)

I've never understood why people think the only place Lacys could have gotten the dilute gene (you know, that "rare blue gene") was from a greyhound. It isn't that rare and there are actually some much more likely candidates. It also shows that just because a dog is blue it doesn't make it a purebred Lacy either.

Here's a couple more... What breeds do you think these dogs are? Or are they Lacys and I'm just tricking you? ;)

It's funny that you started this thread Julie...
I have a link that I want y'all to check out. For years the Lacy has been marketed as a "Rare" breed because of it's blue variety..

and then I want you to look at this picture Julie ;) What do you think it is?

Last weekend at the McCoy bay a guy was giving out free pups that looked like red Lacy pups with real long ears. Turns out they were 1/2 Pit, 1/4 Tigg, and 1/4 Walker. If he'd had a blue one, he may have been able to convince a couple people that he had Lacys!

Ted is right again, all three of those pictures are of registered Mountain Curs. With the exception of the bob tails, most of those blue MCs could pass as Lacys. They are the right size, the right build, similar drive, not to mention easily accessible in East Texas and the southern states. I often wonder if people who claim to have brindle Lacys really have blue brindle MCs or Lacy-MC mixes.

Mis, you're right, the blue gene is not rare. It occurs in many breeds. The only reason it doesn't show up all the time is that it is recessive, which means a pup needs two dilute alleles to express it so both parents need to carry a d gene. People appear to have bred for that in Lacys, but it's there in plenty of breeds.

And I believe that is a Xoloitzcuintle, a.k.a. Mexican Hairless. Funnily enough, one of the guys on ETHD was joking around about that a couple months ago. He figured the Lacy brothers took a trip to Mexico and got one of their Hill Country curs got knocked up by Xolo. That could explain some of the balding Lacys ;) Kidding y'all...

Rachel, I'm not even going to attempt to trick people with red dogs, there are plenty that could be misidentified... in both directions!
