Blue Merle Puppy Color Opinion

I am considering getting a blue merle girl. A puppy became available but I'm not sure if blue merle puppies are supposed to be more “merle”, with more color variation? Or is this color "normal"?

Thank you in advance.

This baby has beautiful markings. The merle does darken as the puppy gets older. Don’t get caught up on the coloring. Make sure you are purchasing from a reputable breeder. See both parents, where the puppies are raised. Make sure they are following the breed standard and breeding for temperament as well as beauty and brains.
