The merle gene gives a striking pattern to the coat, as merle is a dilution gene so it lightens what the coat would have been resulting in patches of colours over the dog’s coat. So it will affect black, liver and blue coats but It does not work on red. Red remains untouched and will appear as normal. The random coat dilution caused by merle also affects the eyes and nose. The eyes may be all or partly blue, and the nose may be all or partly pink
