So there is a lady in our area who just had puppies and says her dogs are purebred however none of the five puppies are white like the dad. The dad looks 100% pure bred and is all white and mom is a light brindle. Shouldn't at least one have come out all white.

The white coat comes from the gene responsible for flashy (white) markings, so if the mom has a solid mask without any white there wouldn't be any white puppies.
Both parents have to be flashy to produce whites.

I agree with the above posts; sounds like the lady hasn't done her research

My boy Tyson's dad is all white and there were no all white boxers in his litter.

He was AKC registered and I later learned that breeding the all whites is frowned upon. I guess the breeder lied when registering the dad or used a different male's registration.
