Through the testing of Dreama's coat color gene, we know that she will never produce any chocolate puppies; breeding her to a Raising Cain, or Little Cain, will always produce an all black litter of puppies. Neither of the Cain's have a mutated copy of the "E" gene (the yellow gene), so she will never produce a yellow puppy with either of those dogs. To have yellow puppies, Dreama would need to be mated with a yellow dog or a black dog who carries the mutated "e" gene.

Any puppy born to Dreama and Raising Cain, or Dreama and Little Cain will be "clear" of the mutated gene for Exercise Induced Collapse. Genetic diseases require two copies of the mutated gene for the puppy to be "affected" by the disease (one copy from each parent). Breeding "clear" to "carrier" will produce some puppies who are "clear" and some puppies as "carriers" but no puppy will be "affected" by the disease; breeding "clear" to "clear" produces a litter that is all "clear".
