cannot blame you keeping one did the same with one of my cats litters, its just so tempting to keep them. hoping to have litter of border collies in a year or so (bitch only 1 year now) hope I can resist keeping one.

we got a tri boarder that we might let have 1 set of pups she's 2 now but think will leave her untill 3 or so
was talking to the testing lady and she said that tri's and blue's can be born deaf as well theres 3% of them that are deaf.

there is a higher risk of blindness and defness if you breed two merls together, it should not be done under any sercumstances, a breeding should not hapen even if only one is a merle and the other has a merle gene in its line ither

My bitch is tyi colour (see avatar) I also have a blue merle dog, whith whom I would like to mate her
his hearing is fine so is hers and there is no merl gene in her blood line or any history os deafness so think I will go ahead with the mating.

Will not be for at least a year she is to young at the moment and will continue to do research to make sure I make the right decision.
