Pretty much this. I prefer merle on shorter coats like catahoulas. I voted cookies too!

*snip*how are people getting things with merle that LOOK legit?
SO GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE. I WANT A MERLE FLUFFY THINGY SO BAD.

Anyway, they're doing it by lots and lots of breeding back to the original breed. This poodle is probably 3-6 generations removed from the merle breed. All they need is one. I looked on the dog's pedigree and half of it isn't even registered on both sides.

Too aggressive for you, maybe, but I'm actually expecting it before too long. Let's face it, this is chaz. We're super pro-breeder in comparison to how this forum was 5 years ago, but still pretty anti-mutt breeding.

Pinterest. Search "part poodle" and scroll.

I love pumpkin cookies. Want.

While I like quite a few individual dogs that are merle, I generally prefer solid dogs. And honestly the semi lethal aspect of merle makes me wish it didn't exist.

Flashy though.

Just watch, now I'll end up with a merle dog next. The universe just works like that

+1, it also makes me wish it would stop getting introduced to breeds.

Oddly enough, UKC just added that eff Jan 1, 2014, this is a DQ in all Poodle sizes and varieties:

Merle coloring.
Blue eyes, or any variation of, including flecks and marbling.
My understanding is that it is not a naturally-occurring color in Poodles, and was introduced by some herding breed being mixed in.

as is the case in all magical merle instances

my coworker has a theory that it was OES, which has a similar enough coat type to poodles that you wouldnt get "doodle hair" from those crosses

I might be threadjacking my own thread here, but other than breeding merlexmerle because you're an idiot, what's lethal about it?

Yep! Any poodle that's merle is a mutt somewhere down the line. So, this dog is definitely a mutt, and the breeder is trying to pass it off as a purebred poodle. Half the 'pedigree' is missing. It's hilarious.

That was why I added the 'flaming' option. I've already admitted that I like goldendoodles, and now posting a thread about a merle poodle being awesome is probably going to foster resentment.

I have to say that as a groomer, I loathe most doodles. Labradoodles and Goldendoodles. We see so many with health issues, NASTY temperaments and allergies. Most of them have more of the poodle coat around here. It is just gross. I seriously have no idea why people consider them a "breed" as they're NOT. They're mutts. Plain and simple mutts.

The merle coloring is cool looking but........just what the world needs more ill temperamented doodle type dogs.
