The Merle gene cause dilution to random sections of hair to create a lighter color and leaves patches of the original color. For instance, with a Black English Bulldog, when the Merle gene is added, you still have a black dog except with Merle markings.
Genotype for Merle is [mn].
Sometimes incorrectly known as Blue Merle, the Black Merle showcases grey or blue color in between the patches in the coat. The eyes will be blue or brown and the nose will be black in pigment. If not for the Merle gene, the presentation would be solid black. Being called a Blue Merle is incorrect because that would indicate a [dd] blue pigment when it is black.
