    "Blue Merle" is NOT a recognized color for poodles, and should not be bred. The genetic mutation that causes Merle coloration is also linked to other genetic defects, so breeding these dogs can cause other problems, like deafness and blindness.

    http://www.akc.org/breeds/poodle/index.cfm

    "Color:

    The coat is an even and solid color at the skin. In blues, grays, silvers, browns, cafe-au-laits, apricots and creams the coat may show varying shades of the same color. This is frequently present in the somewhat darker feathering of the ears and in the tipping of the ruff. While clear colors are definitely preferred, such natural variation in the shading of the coat is not to be considered a fault. Brown and cafe-au-lait Poodles have liver-colored noses, eye-rims and lips, dark toenails and dark amber eyes. Black, blue, gray, silver, cream and white Poodles have black noses, eye-rims and lips, black or self colored toenails and very dark eyes. In the apricots while the foregoing coloring is preferred, liver-colored noses, eye-rims and lips, and amber eyes are permitted but are not desirable. Major fault: color of nose, lips and eye-rims incomplete, or of wrong color for color of dog.

    Parti-colored dogs shall be disqualified. The coat of a parti-colored dog is not an even solid color at the skin but is of two or more colors."

      The disabilities occur only with double Merle dogs (when 2 merle dogs are bred). It does not occur when one merle dog is bred with a non-merle dog.

    Why would you want a merle Poodle? They are not accepted by AKC and to introduce the merle gene, they had to outcross to a different breed. In other words, a merle Poodle is a mixed breed dog. Furthermore, there are serious health and genetic issues with the merle gene. It is not something to fool around with if you don't know what you're doing.

    Hi, I understand that you are looking for some advice or resources to help fully train your dog or fix behavior problems. If a professional dog trainer is not an option at this time, or if you want to trt training your dog on your own (a great way to bond), I'd suggest you https://biturl.im/aU8Db

    A friend recommened it to me a few years ago, and I was amazed how quickly it worked, which is why I recommend it to others. The dog training academy also has as an excellent home training course.

    id have to agree with the other answers. the point of breeding is to better the breed, not to contribute to the already overpopulation of pets already. the merle gene has MANY health issues. this is why merle is not recognized by the akc. check your dogs characteristics on akc.org or better yet have someone impartial, like your vet recomend on breeding i have bets that he recomend spaying instead and that is sight unseen of course

    good luck and dont forget to spaye

    If you knew anything about breeding you wouldn't have to ask this question. Isn't there enough dogs in the world without you bringing in yet another litter ?
