e/e cream

Cream dogs have no black hair. The 'on switch' to make black pigment is basically non-functional. Only yellow pigment is produced and the cream/yellow colour varies from near-white to warm gold. Several "Intensity" genes control the shade of cream.  Solid cream dogs are a good opportunity to see the fundamental phaeomelanin 'intensity' genes at work on a blank canvas of dog hair.
