genes
by: yusaf

should be about 50/50 speaking purely genetically
tri's are tri/tri merles are MERLE/tri

merle is dominant so when breeded you can get either

tri/MERLE tri/tri MERLE/tri tri/tri

merle beats tri because its dominant and they are all 25% chance. you could end up with bi's too if your dogs both have that only 25% i think (not sure about bi's) and they should all be red
hope that helps

You know it is all up to mother nature as to what you get, but 50/50.
The pups will be all red, you do realize that?
Please e-mail me before you breed them.
