Merles

Recommended Posts

 

Merles,..a contentious subject..and like Marmite,..you either love em,..or,.... ya don't :laugh:

 

Having been involved with herders and sheepdog/Cattle dog, hybrid lurcher types,..since my childhood,..Merle coloured canines, have always been part and parcel of Collie x Running dog litters...

I've had Black and white collie lurchers and plenty of Red Fawns , Brindles, etc,..

The actual colour doesn't really mean a lot,..they are either useful,.or not useful,..simple as that.

 

Personaly,..I quite like the Merle colouration,..I find this unique blend of Greys, Silvers,Blues and Chocolate pelt hues,to be really interesting. So much so, that whenever I breed a litter of cur dogs, I invariably keep back a Merle :thumbs:

Iv always wanted a Merle coloured dog, even bred a litter of bushing dogs and had couple Merle pups, but when my father in law, who provided the stud and has been real good to me took to them I couldn't not gift him them. And besides how would I ever deny having collie in a dog if it's Merle lol
