So I asked....

Question: With the recent changes to the registration policies of dogs descended from two merle parents will that policy affect harlequin to harlequin breedings of Great Danes?

The Kennel Club Hi ______, there are no plans for restrictions at the moment. But if you have any concersn over health implications feel free to contact us on [email protected]

That makes no sense for harl x harl to not be banned as well. It's the same thing genetically (with a modifier) as breeding merle x merle. Same health risks.

Good to see them making a movement to clean up some of the messes!

Are harl x harl breedings common in Danes? It doesn't seem a sound decision for the BYB/puppy miller, because you loose a quarter (or more) of your potential puppies, or for the show breeder because you barely get any dogs of a showable color (and it's my understanding Harlequin Danes are uncommon in the show ring to begin with, because getting the markings correct is such a crapshoot).

I think I'm still a bit confused, I thought they had already put a ban in place before on all MM breeding's? But, that ^^^ is what I'm thinking then, I do know that the Beauceron club has previously made a statement that they do not recognize breeders who do Harli(genetically Merle) to Harli breedings.

I know dane colors are...weird. So many of the colors found in the breed are DQ'd in the show ring and I'm honestly not really sure why they're DQ'd. I'm pretty sure you have to breed either harl x harl or harl x black/mantle. Is that right?

I've seen quite a few white (double harl) danes fwiw. Don't know anything about their breeding though.
