When we got Pidge, she was confirmed by two breeders to be a "cryptic blue merle". I have tried to find some answers online but it seems like nobody really knows what this means. Her breeder says that it has to do with the amount of black, some websites say it only shows up in DNA testing...Does anyone know what makes a cryptic blue? Or why they are so rare? Does it have any bearing on her personality or pedigree? Unless it means being extra mischievous then I don't have a clue! Thanks!
