My current female cavalier has an extremely tick free muzzle. I'm looking at a new male to show and possibly breed to a pup from my female.

I've found a beautiful little boy but he appears to have quite a bit of ticking around the the nose. It looks like a recessive t gene.

My question is how much of fault will this be in the ring here in the U.S.

And would it be wise to use this male for breeding.

And also I could be wrong about my description of ticking. I'm considering
ticking as black blotches in the skin. I'm not sure what this will look like as
the pup gets thicker hair in the muzzle area.

I will attempt to put a pic of the pup online.
