Up coming litters
Get on the VIPP LIST ( Very Important Puppy Parents for our 2016 Litters.
Our puppies are adopted very qucikly and our Vipp families get first pcik Dont miss Out!
Merle Shorkies are Coming hopefully in 2016
Let me proudly introdue our Merle Yorkie "MERLIN"
Merlin is 7 lbs so his puppies will be about in the 10 lbs range. Perfect for kids
History of the Merle Yorkshire Terrier:
Let me first say that the MERLE GENE was added into the yorkie breed. It was not a naturaly color that just popped up out of no where.There is no real known truth as to where it came from and when we began doing our research we went to the some of the top experts and yorkie breeders before deciding on adopting our first Merle boy
Merle is a pattern in a dog‘s coat, though is commonly incorrectly referred to as a colour. The merle gene creates mottled patches of color in a solid or piebald coat, blue or odd-colored eyes, and can affect skin pigment as well.
Merle can affect all coat colors. The merle forms of brown and black are usually called “red” (though this is not correct; red and merle are genetically different) and “blue” (again, this is not correct, since “blue” refers to the dilution of black) respectively. Dogs who are recessive red can still be affected by merle, but the patches are either hardly seen or if the dog is a clear recessive red, are not visible at all.
In addition to altering base coat color, merle also modifies eye color and coloring on the nose and paw pads. The merle gene modifies the dark pigment in the eyes, occasionally changing dark eyes to blue, or part of the eye to be colored blue. Since merle causes random modifications, however, both dark-eyed, blue-eyed, and odd-colored eyes are possible. Color on paw pads and nose may be mottled pink and black at times.
In January 2006 scientists at Texas A&M University announced the discovery of a mobile genetic unit called a retrotransposon, responsible for the merle mutation in dogs.
A phantom merle or cryptic merle is one with such small patches of merle—or none at all—that it appears to be a non-merle. This is commonly seen in dogs who are recessive red, clear recessive reds in particular, though patches can still be seen in certain red dogs. In America, a dog with the phantom merle coloring is described as being “cryptic for merle.” Source
