Question about Merles: Zoey's pink skin has turned all spotted with dark dots, they show thru her white fur right now (fur might get thicker later?) Any way she has some golden dots showing up on her fur, looks like someone spilled chicken soup on her. Could this be Merle coming out? We are seeing so many changes in her the older she gets. (She is tri color, mostly white, 15 weeks old).
Hugs,
Soozie

He's too cute... unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) he's too far away from me and they don't offer shipping

Awww, he's really adorable

A lot of chis have the "freckles"... especially during the summer. That doesn't have anything to do with being merle.

However, just because a dog doesn't have the dramatic merle markings doesn't mean they aren't a merle. There are "phantom/hidden" merles who are born with the markings, and they fade away as they grow. These merles are usually lighter colored (cream, fawn, etc) although even tricolors can be hidden merles.

Here's a really informative site about merles:
