I would pass on the pup... a merle x merle breeding, esp. to a light/hidden merle, is not something I'd touch w/ a 10 foot pole :( Merles should ONLY be bred to a solid or tri-color black dog or bitch, anything else is asking for trouble.

I thought you bred this pup yourself and was asking? If not, do you have the puppy now at 4 weeks old? If not then I have to agree there may be some health or genetic issues with this pup due to its breeding.

i did breed the pup, theres another 1 a bitch shes a fawn merle and no blue eyes. This was an accident, i didnt know the dad was a hidden merle. The pup will be for sale if theres no health problems.

i am sorry for chilli, but i didnt do this on purpose, i love this breed and have some beautiful dogs, this pup too is beautiful and we will keep him should he have any difficulties, i am a responsible person and believe we are eternally responsible for that which we create. its just his color that quizzes me. i will take pics later and put them on so you can all see him. im open to any clues to his color, i have never seen anything like him. i would say he is parti merle pied?!
