Can Black Tris Have Blue Eyes?

I thought only merle Aussies had blue eyes, I was always told the merle gene also was responsible for the blue eye. Now I see black tris advertised as having blue eyes.

blue eyes

Recently got a blue merle from a black tris mom and dad and both her eyes are blue. So now I have 2 unusual dogs. A blue merle with both eyes blue and a red merle with both eyes golden. First time I've seen these Aussies have the same color eyes in both eyes.

Yes, tris can have blue eyes. One of my black tris is a blue eyed tri carrier.

Love blue eyes on Aussie Shepherds. Hi can you breed a black tri with blue eyes to a blue or red merle with blue eyes or will you have deaf or blind pups?
