They originate from the Anglo-Scottish border region – which separates Scotland and England. The primary aim of breeding these precious pups was to gather and control livestock, especially sheep.
The term “merle” refers to the diluted nature of the eye-catching coat color that leaves striking streaks, splotches, and patches – giving off a ‘bluish’ appearance.
Much like other Border Collies, the blue merle Border Collie is a pup with unique coat colors. They boast a white chest and blue or grey-colored fur on their back, tail, ears, and face.
Blue merle Border Collies are lovable family dogs with an excellent overall temperament.
Blue merle Border Collies are as sweet as they appear to be. They are very affectionate, loyal, and loving. These precious pups make excellent family companions.
