Genotype for Merle Gene: [MN]

Chocolate Merle English Bulldog The Whole Sha-Bang!DNA info for the Merle Pattern is Mm or MN according to the lab you use.

The merle gene dilutes random sections of hair to a lighter color which leaves patches of the original color. So if you start with a black dog and add the Merle Gene, you still have a black dog, a black dog with Merle markings. Unlike the piebald pattern, the patches may look jagged on the outer edges. Merle affects only Eumelanin, and does not affect Phaeomelanin (red) which will appear normal. So black, liver, blue or lilac in the coat, eyes, or nose will be merled.

Black Merle dogs are often called Blue Merle because of the blue or grey color between the patches in their coat. This is a widely used term but is not correct. Technically they should be called black merle. Their nose pigment is black and their eyes are brown or blue. If they didn't have the merle gene, they would be solid black. Blue Merle is misleading because it indicates that these dogs have blue pigment (dd) when in fact they have black. It is the PATCHES on the dog that visually defines the dogs color and what it should appropriately be called.
