What Is A Double Merle, You Ask?
A double merle is created when two merle dogs are bred together. It doesn't matter what color merle, or what breed they are, when two merle or spotted dogs are bred together, each puppy in the litter has a 25% chance of being born a double merle. A double merle inherits the merle gene twice. The dogs are mostly white due to two copies of the merle gene which causes the bleaching/marbling effect in their coat. Double merles have a high chance of being deaf, blind, or both due to the lack of hair pigment produced in the inner ear. A lot of times their eyes are underdeveloped as well. Many people refer to them as albino, but that is an entirely inaccurate statement. Double Merles are 100% preventable with proper breeding practices

A Safe Haven for Special Needs Dogs (Double Merle)
Here at White Diamond Double Merle Dane Rescue, We know that we can't change the world, but we can change the world for the dogs we rescue. We are committed to rescuing the underdogs, or the ones who people overlook because they aren't sure how to care for them. The ones breeders don't care that they produced, and would otherwise be euthanized. We are here to provide a safe, and loving home environment for these "special" dogs to decompress, and thrive while we rehabilitate them and ready them for their second chance at life, in a new forever home.
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”

Noel is a 5 year old double merle great dane. She is deaf. She would do best in a home with no other dogs, cats, or young children. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and heartworm tested.
She is heartworm positive. We will supply the medication for her heartworm treatment using the slow kill method which isn't as hard on the dog as the injections. If interested in adopting Noel. Please fill out an application. We do adopt out of state, but adopter is responsible for transport.
