Hard to tell with just one picture and no knowledge of the genetics behind it, but it's possible! Might just be a tri-headed white, though.

I don't know a heck of a lot about Collie colors, and even less about color genetics, but that was my first thought, too.

She looks like a Tri-color headed white to me...

Though, speaking of harlequins, a breeder friend of mine has a litter of 3 wk old Collie babies right now, and there are a few harlequins in the litter...

I have to agree that it looks like a tri-headed white collie.

*Gasp* Pictures please?? (PM if you'd rather?)

Harls are always technically blue merles, right? Hard to tell from the picture but the black on the dog's back looks very solid, not merley. Plus I think whites are more common than harls, but I could be wrong about that.

Pictures sent to you PM. And yes, whites would be more common (and easier to get for that matter) than Harls, though the breeder I know actually has had a number of Harls over the years.
