Merle Pomeranains

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a page dedicated to Merle pomeranian puppies that have been born here at Dee Dee’s poms through the years. I will add new photos as I am able to in order to give you an idea of the variety of merles and the interesting colors and patterns they come in.

Merles are a fairly recent addition to the world of Pomeranians and still a bit controversial, although AKC is now accepting this color and even championed some beautiful merle poms.

The Merle effect in the pomeranian is caused by a dominant gene, so one of the parents in all merle breedings must be a merle in order to have a merle puppy.  There is a 50% chance of having a merle in a breeding with one merle and one non merle pom.

Merle is a color combination in dogs’ coats. It is a solid base color (usually red/brown or black) with lighter blue/gray or reddish patches, which gives a mottled or uneven speckled effect.

A merle dog can be completely merled (from a solid black, etc.)  or it can have additional colors in the coat…sometimes white markings, sometimes a “parti”, or possibly  tan markings as a black & tan pup would have.  All combinations are beautiful. 

Merle can also alter other colors and patterns besides the usual red or black. These combinations such as Brindle Merle or Liver Merle are not typically accepted in breed standards.

In addition to altering the base coat color, the merle gene can also modify 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, sometimes in both eyes, sometimes in only one eye. Coloring on the skin and paw pads can also have the merle spotting…may be pink or black. 

The Blue Merles are black pups that have been “merled” creating a gorgeous weaving of grays/blue, silver and black.   If the pup is a “parti” with white areas, the colored area may be “merled” to create an even more interesting variety.

Orange pups and Cream colors and even Chocolates can be “merled”.  The oranges and creams very often will lose the merle patterning as they mature and it would be difficult to know that they were indeed merles.  That is why, especially if breeding, it is very important to know if the pup is a merle.  There are health risks associated with breeding white/cream merles or merles to merles….so please be sure you know if you are making the decision to breed for these beautiful creatures.

Of course, none of these babies are for sale….they have all found their forever homes, but if you want to see our current pomeranian puppies for sale, you can go to the “pomeranian puppies for sale” page or just click on the yellow button that says “available puppies”  on the right hand side of the home page.
Enjoy!

    Debi – I Have spoken with you on the phone.
    Just wanted to make sure I am on the email

  2. Meredith cheek says:

    I love the colors in these babies. I am just finding out about this breed and was wanting to know how much they run for?

  3. Christi Stacy says:

    Hi Debi. Thanks for emailing me about your new baby! He’s gonna be a beauty, but I’m still holding out for a small blk/silver Merle male. So if you could please leave me on your list, that would be great. Thanks so much! Sincerely, Christi Stacy

  4. Carolyn Barker says:

    Please put me on your list for 1 of your beautiful merle puppies.

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Carolyn, all I need to put you on my list is a completed Buyer’s Questionnaire which can be found on my website under “purchasing” and actually submitted from there as well. I look forward to hearing from you!

  5. Ashley says:

    I was wondering how much you usually sell the pups for and about what size they are. My little girl really wants a pom for Christmas this year and I have a female about 4 lbs. She wants it around her size. I know they are pricey, so I was wondering how much you sell them for and if you’ll have any around Christmas time. Thank you for your time. Ashley Kusnierz

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Ashley,
      Thanks for your interest in our pomeranians. My pups range in price from $1800 to $4000 depending on a variety of things. It is too early in the year to know what I will have next Christmas, but we have litters year round, so hopefully there will be one you love! 🙂

  8. Angel Moreno says:

    Interested in a blue or chocolate merle with tan markings. If there is a chance you’ll be having some of these, how may i be put on a waiting list? Thank you.

    • Dee Dee says:

      Ahhhh…that is a very rare combination. I do have merles fairly often, but not always with the tan markings. If you would like to be on my waiting list for merles, you can send in a Buyer’s Questionnaire and I will put you on my list for merles.

    I am looking for a blue eyed Pom. Please email me, when you have one- a pup up to a year old. Either sex. 6 pounds at most.

    Thank You–

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Connie,
      Thanks for your interest in our pomeranians. I don’t really breed for the blue eyes, although I have gotten them on occasion, but rarely. I actually prefer the darker eyes, so that is what I strive for in my breeding program…so sorry!

  14. Yara says:

    Hi, I want to Know if You have female puppies , and if You do envíos to mexico??

    • Dee Dee says:

      Thanks for your interest in our pons! I do not currently have any puppies available but I do have litters coming in June/July. Please do check back with us then!

  15. Justin Stewart says:

    I was interested in a male blue Merle Pom.

    • Dee Dee says:

      Justin,
      Thanks so much for your interest in our pomeranians! I do currently have a waiting list for my merles. If you would like to be put on my waiting list, I would love for you to fill out my Buyer’s Questionnaire. Once I have that, I would be happy to add you to my waiting list! 🙂

  16. ron flint says:

    What is your going rate for your merils

  17. Daisy Dudek says:

    I was wondering if you have any blue Merles available at this time or a possible litter being born soon

    • Dee Dee says:

      I will be getting some 6 week old blue merles this Sunday. If you will send me an email, I will put you on my updates/notification list when I post them as available.

  18. suzie rather says:

    Female blue merle is what i would like, small si
    ze

  19. Tracy Stutzman says:

    I have two blue merles an a black pom. I was wondering how many pups can they have. My girl had 1 on her first litter an then had 7 her next. I got her fixed after that. Just curious whats the norm.

    • Dee Dee says:

      Size of litters really depends on the size of the mom. Larger poms usually have larger litters, but the average sized litter for pomeranians is 3….hope this helps! 🙂

  20. Cayn Moss says:

    I will be seeking a very small solid colored strong double blue eyed stud. Do you have one or any of your past pups maybe?
    Im in Burbank CA. CARYN 818-266-7127 [email protected]

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Cayn,
      Thank you for your interest in our pomeranians. Although I do occasionally get puppies with blue eyes, I do not specifically breed for them. I have never had a solid color with blue eyes, so I’m afraid I probably won’t have what you are looking for.

  21. Cindy Keith says:

    I recently bought a silver Merle Pomeranian(male) and am considering breeding him. What little I have read says not to breed Merle to Merle or to a white. So I am asking you for advice in this. What are the safest colors to breed with Merle. Ultimately would like to have Merle pups. Any advice you could share would be appreciated. Oh, my name is Cindy

  22. Dominic Brooks says:

    We are interested in a female black and silver blue merle. Please let us know if you have any or will soon! Thank you

    • Dee Dee says:

      We may have one in our upcoming litters this Fall/Winter, but we will be specifically breeding for our blue merles in Spring 2016

      • Dominic Brooks says:

        You replied to me about the silver/black merle…do we check back in with you if you have a fall or winter litter or will you let us know if you do?
        Thank you

        • Dee Dee says:

          If you will go ahead and fill out my “Buyer’s Questionnaire” and submit that to me I will add you to my updates/notification list so that you will be notified as soon as new litters arrive. We have bred one of our new merle girls, “Zanie” and if the breeding took, she will be due the first week of December. If you have a Buyer’s Questionniare completed and on file, you will be able to put a deposit down from that litter if she has some merles and you see one you love.

  23. Sherri Fox says:

    I am interested in a blue metal female or a tri color female. Where do you live? I am in California. Do you guarantee live delivery and a ri hour vet Chechen for any problems?

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Sherri, thanks for your interest in our pomeranians. I am in Texas, close to Austin. If you will email any questions you have I would be happy to talk to you more about our upcoming litters! [email protected]. Look forward to talking with you more.

  25. Michael says:

    Hi! Love checking out your poms’s beautiful pictures. I have a wolf sable female named Sansa. And I’m on a lookout for her future merle partner. How difficult is it to find a blue eyed merle? Thanks!

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Michael….I would love to see pictures of your girl! We are expecting litters to arrive in February with the possibility of merle. I do get blue eyes (one or both) on occasion…just depends on where the merle gene falls. Check back with us in a couple of weeks or email me to be put on my updates/notification list to be notified when the new litters arrive. Look forward to talking with you more.

    Your pups are absolutely beautiful and have such sweet faces. Hoping to find a Pom pup to join our family in the new year. I wanted to make sure I have completed all the necessary steps to be placed on the notification list should your future litters include any blue Merle’s. Thanks so much.

  44. Nadine bell says:

    Hello, I am interested in a Merle Pomeranian 🙂 but I live out of state and wondering if there is a way for shipping/flying the pup this way? When will you have any available? My mother has a Merle Pomeranian and he is the most beautiful, sweetest dog I’ve ever met. My hubby and I have been looking for them for a long time and yours are beautiful!!!

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Nadine,
      Thanks so much for your interest in our pomeranians….I am expecting several litters in December and hope to have some blue merles. I am not currently taking deposits on the unborn litters. If you want to send me an email, I would be happy to add you to my updates/notification list so that you will be notified when the new litters arrive. I will be taking deposits on a first come, first serve basis for those who have a completed buyer’s questionnaire on file. The deposit is non refundable, but you have until the selected puppy is 6 weeks old to change your mind for any reason and the deposit can be transferred or deffered to an upcoming litter for up to one year.

  45. Kim Allison says:

    Could you put me on your list and let me know when your next litter has arrived and how much they are and where you are located only because I’m in Kansas and I don’t want to have to ship a dog very uncomfortable and don’t trust shipping

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Ladonna,
      We are located in Central TX so if shipping is not an option you are probably better off finding a good breeder in your area. Thanks for your interest in our little guys though! 🙂 Much appreciated.

  51. Ashly says:

    Hello, im very interested in purchasing a female blue merle and understand the price range. I sent you an email, requesting to be place on the notification list. Just wanting to comfirm if you recieved it. Also i believe you stated a litter is due this month and wanted to know if they are all accounted for?

    • Dee Dee says:

      Hi Ashly,
      I did receive your email…thanks! Yes, we have two litters coming in March with the possibility of merle…I do not have a waiting list at this time.

  52. Marci McDonald says:

    Hi, I just have a question. I have been trying to find a male to breed with my blue merle female. I have tried to figure out what color would be best to breed with a blue merle. Do you know of a color chart that could help me decide what the litter would look like. I was thinking a parti to add white. What do you think about an Orange and blue merle?
    Thanks

  53. shannon burnett says:

    Dee Dee, I am interested in a blue merle male. Please let me know if I can get on a list and what information you need from me. Thanks!
