What is a Merle?
The merle coat comes from a dominant gene that becomes diluted by other genes. When this happens, different merle colors occur.
Types of Merles
The Lilac Merle French Bulldog is one that has a chocolate brown and a blue base coat color and light-colored eyes. The blue fur is diluted, revealing the lilac color. This is the most uncommon of the Merle Frenchies and could cost you up to a whopping $10,000.
A black merle is created when a dominant gene is black and eventually other coat colors show up. These colors are commonly black, tan, or fawn.
