Improper coat

LABOKLIN Service ID: 8405

A mutation responsible for "furnishings" or "satin" coat in dogs has been identified in the RSPO2 gene. Furnishings refer to the variation of longer facial hair seen in all wire haired breeds as well as some others. The mutation is a dominant one, so in breeds where the coat can vary, it is possible for a furnished dog to carry the "unfurnished" trait (called satin by some). This coat variant is called „improper coat“ in portuguese waterdogs.
