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.
We rescue these dogs from all over the USA. Texas, Utah, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Colorado, Mississippi, the Carolinas, and Kentucky, just to name a few.
