How do I Know if my Dog Carries the Mutation for Coat Furnishings?

DDC Veterinary offers a coat-furnishings test for several dog breeds. By identifying the genotype of the parents, our clients can more accurately predict the genotype of future offspring. Breeders can use DNA testing as a tool to more effectively manage mating patterns and make more informed selection decisions.

Furnishings (DNA marker tested – RSPO2): The presence of “furnishings” is usually observed in wire-haired dogs and is best characterized by a longer mustache and eyebrow facial-hair pattern. Like Curl, this is also inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. Therefore, dogs having only 1 copy of the furnishings allele will likely have “furnishings,” but will pass on the non-furnishings (improper coat) allele about 50% of the time.

DNA results are emailed within 5 business days, once all samples are received at the laboratory.

Understanding Results

These are the 3 potential genotypes reported:

  • RSP02 Insertion -/- (2 copies of this non-furnishings allele)

This dog does not have furnishings. Some breeds refer to this as improper coat

  • RSP02 Insertion +/- (1 copy of this furnishings allele, 1 copy of this non-furnishings allele)

This dog will likely pass on the furnishings gene to 50% of its offspring & the non-furnishings gene (improper coat) to 50% of its offspring

  • RSP02 Insertion +/+ (2 copies of this furnishings allele)

This dog will pass on the furnishings gene to 100% of its offspring
