I often get asked what does a blue merle poodle look like?
What is the color difference between a blue merle and a silver merle poodle?
How do you know which is which?
Blue merle poodles are darker than silver merles. Their base color is usually a medium to darker gray, with black or very dark gray merle overlay. The overall look is bolder and often more attention getting than silver merles, which tend have more of a subtle pastel color scheme.
Blue merles with good patterns usually look equally good in long or short hair styles, as the color differences are more noticeable and still sizzles when the coat is longer.
