I'm Not Sure That My Girl Is A Pure Australian Shepherd

When I went to pick up my baby, she was 5 weeks. The breeder said the mother could not breastfeed and was rejecting the babies, and had to deliver them early. She looked like a pure blue merle Australian Shepherd, but now at 8 months, I'm not so sure. She has a lot of tan in color and has lost almost all the silver, the hair is not long. At 8 months, already weighs 66 pounds. The breeder makes sure that she was born from a female merle with black and white male.

Anyway, we love her so much! So smart! Sometimes she's an angel, and other times so destructive with a full energy, that never ends! ;)

Can you tell me if she is a pure one, and if she is a blue merle or another color?
