Hi My name is Rod and my wife if Peggy. We have a 2 year old Blue Merle BC that we had nuetered. It is the best looking dog, and very smart. We are sorry we had him fixed. We went back to the breader two years later and picked out a Female Blue Merle BC who is the full sister of our male dog. (Rocky) Now we want to bread her. If any one knows of a Blue Merle Stud in Northern Cal, please let us know.
