Rare Merle Schnauzers
The first Merle Schnauzer was born in 2006, people became
immediately drawn to them as they are so uniquely colored.  
Merle Schnauzers were created to bring new colors to the great
breed of the  Miniature Schnauzer.  In doing so a Toy Mini
Australian Shepherd was chosen due to there beautiful Merle
color, great intelligence and similarities to the Miniature
Schnauzer.     

Merle Schnauzers are highly intelligent, very loyal and loving.   
They get along well with other pets and love to travel with the
family.  Merle Schnauzers are great for the whole family no
matter what age you are.  They love children and spend much of
their time guarding them and their home.  They are tough, hardy
and love to go on walks or just hang out in the house.

The life span of a Merle Schnauzer should be about 15 years
with minimal health problems.  They are great dogs for people
who have allergies, since they have no shedding.  The more
generations of  Miniature Schnauzer crossed in leads to less
shedding.

Merle Schnauzers come in a variety of sizes, from T-cup (6 lbs &
under) Toy (7-11 lbs.) to Mini. (12-15 lbs.).

Merle Schnauzers come in a array of colors, hinting to how they
got the name, "Confetti Schnauzers" .  
Blue Merle, Chocolate Merle, Cream Merle (can have Red tints),
Silver Merle, Liver, Liver N Tan, Liver Pepper, White
Chocolate, White, Black, Salt N Pepper, Silver, Black & Silver
and all of these colors come in Parti colors too.

Merle Gene

Merle is a dilution gene, it lightens whatever the color coat would have been.  
The lightening is not spread evenly over the coat, but leaves patches of
undiluted color scattered over the dog's body. Merle gives a mottled or uneven
speckled effect. Most breeds with Merle coats also typically have white
markings (such as around the neck, under the belly, and on the legs), the white
is separate from the Merle.

In addition to altering the base coat color, Merle also modifies eye color and
the coloring on the nose and paw pads. The Merle gene can modify the dark
pigment in the eyes,  changing dark eyes to blue or part of the eye to blue. You
can also have a solid colored dog with blue eyes (who is by a Merle) who has
no other Merle markings, the blue eyes are it's Merle marker. In none of these
cases will the dogs vision be affected. Color on the nose and paw pads may be
mottled pink and black.

Spotted or Leopard: Spotted is a Merle who has a lot of dark big spots on the
dog. Leopard is a dog with a lot of small dark spots on them. You can also
have a dog with both markings. These 2 terms work with all colors of Merles.
