What is a double merle?
I haven't decided on the name completely (I'm waiting until I meet him) but it's a possibility he will end up with the name Marshmallow, or Mallow, haha. Who knows.
Double merle is the common phrase for homozygous merles, or dogs with 2 copies of the merle gene (the result of breeding 2 merles together). Double merles commonly (not all, but if I'm correct, 25% of each litter) have disabilities, such as deafness or blindness, or both.
