Blue Merle

Blue Merle: The blue merle is a marbled or merled colour that is predominately blue-grey and has white markings around the collar, chest, legs, feet and tip of the tail.  The blue merle also has tan markings similar to the tri-coloured Collie (around the eyebrows and cheek area).  The blue merle has the widest variety of colours - you will find Blues with almost no merleing or almost all merleing.  They can have splotches of black or dark grey, or no splotches at all.

Special thanks to Sandi Hamilton of Glasgowhill Collies for providing most of the pictures for this section!
