Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Here is an interesting article on Merle coloring and genetics in dog breeds. http://glimpse.clemson.edu/genetics-and-the-coat-of-many-colors/
We have a red merle parti Ausiedoodle (although in pictures he appears more blue). Like others, I'm questioning the merle coloring in a golden or labradoodle. Poodles aren't recognized in the merle coloring, so not sure where it would be coming in from.
