Red Merle

A Red Merle Australian Shepherd is made up of red patches or spots which can range from light cinnamon to a dark red liver colour.
The background of the dog can be anything from buff to silver.
The background colour can vary, and so can the colour and size of the red areas.
Spots can be small speckles to large patches that cover large areas of the Australian Shepherd.
Red Merles may also have white markings on the face, chest, legs, and under parts and copper markings can be seen on the face and legs.
A Red Merle Australian Shepherd can be:-

  • Red Merle with copper and white
  • Red Merle with copper OR white
  • Solid Red Merle
