New Puppy With White Face – Should I Be Worried?
I am going to be bringing my Mini Aussie puppy home in about 6 weeks. He is my first dog, but my fiance grew up with a Golden and a Husky mix as a kid.
I am reading up on everything out there to be as prepared as possible. Does he have too much white (ie double merle)? Neither parent is a merle, however, so I'm hoping he's ok.
Also, should I expect him to get darker and/or get more red spots as he gets older? I've looked at tons of red merle pictures online, but he seems to be lighter than most red merles out there.
The breeder said that his eyes should be opening this weekend. Are blue eyes more common in merles compared to bi/tri colors?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
