Help! Unusal Red Merle Pattern On Face
Hello, I will be getting a new Mini Australian Shepherd puppy soon and fell in love with a red merle puppy at a breeders. However, in coming home and researching. I didn't see many dogs on the internet with a similar marking on the face. Can anybody let me know if it may indicate a defect? I saw somewhere that the merle gene may cause blindness or deafness... please help!
