Piebald is controversial because it looks exactly like a Dom Spot just with better defined edges so it's possible it's just a really clear Dom Spot as opposed to a separate gene.

I breeder in the netherlands breeds (or bred) both mutations.
I was quite intrigued so went and googled the two colours. I managed to find some photos and they're very cute. <3

I can see where the controversy might have come from with the Piebald though as it does look very similar to a Dom Spot.

It'll be interesting to see how these develop and the genetics behind them as time goes on.
