Punnett Practice #4 T. Trimpe 2008

In Dalmatians, the trait for black spots (B) is dominant over the recessive trait for no spots. Use this information to answer these questions. (1) Two Dalmatians with black spots have puppies. One of the dogs is homozygous for black spots, while the other is heterozygous. Out of a litter of 4 puppies, how many would you expect to have without spots? Create a Punnett square to support your answer. (2) Two Dalmatians had a large litter of 10 puppies. Seven of them have black spots, while 3 do not. What would the genotypes of the two parents need to be for this result? Create a Punnett square to support your answer.

Create a Punnett square to support your answer. The parents would have both have to be Bb or heterozygous for black spots in order to have 7 out of 10 or about 75% of puppies with black spots.
