Is This Unusual Coat Color On My Australian Shepherd A Form Of Merle?
My girl is about 6 months old. She is papered from show stock. I fell in love with her unusual markings. She came from two tri parents with a red in her grandparents.
As she’s grown, more and more of these freckle type spots have appeared in what was once solid white. The large black spots down her back and her face were clear from the start.
Is this a form of merle? Should I have her genetics tested before breeding down the road?
