When undertaking dog cloning with dogs that are a solid colour, the same appearance can be expected. And for dogs of any colour, their clones will always be the closest possible replica of the original dog, even if small differences in appearance of some markings are seen on the cloned dog, as they share exactly the same DNA as the original!
