It is possible for two solid colored poodles to produce spotted offspring, though not as likely. Here's how is works. A dog with solid coloring can carry either a dominant gene for solid color (SS) or the recessive trait for spotting (Ss). If both parents are solid colored and carry only the dominant color gene (SS), mating them would never result in a litter of spotted puppies. Both the solid colored male and female must carry the recessive spotted genes (Ss) in order to produce spotted pups.
