Default Blue merle chi?

Hello all. I am going to rescuing a little blue merle chi. he is 6 months old, upt on shots and fixed. I have been looking at pictures and reading a bit about them. Do they really have serious health problems? Does anyone else have the blue merles? I cannot wait to get my hands on the lil guy! and just love him to bits! I will be getting him this next week. Now I am going to have 2 puppies in the house I am picking up my girl tomorrow! LOL I really hope Peanut doesnt hate me!

All merles can have health issues, it really depends how the pigment is placed as it is a random spotting gene. It is usually hearing and/or eyesight that is affected, which should be obvious in a 6 month old pup. So check and ask if he has been tested for deafness, and see how his eyesight affects him.
Many merles are perfectly healthy, it is usually the offspring of two merles aka 'double merles' that have serious issues, and no responsible breeder would do that mating. So do ask how he was bred, the colour of his parents etc.
