Merle-line descendants of Noble Navy Blue

Unless otherwise marked, all dogs listed were blue merles. An asterisk (*) before the name indicates the dog is from merle to merle breeding. A pound sign (#) after the name indicates that I have no merle offspring in my file.

There have been and probably still are merle Champions that trace in direct merle line to Ch Sheltieland Thistle. But it does not appear that any of the Register of Merit blue merles obtained the merle gene from Ch Sheltieland Thistle through Noble Navy Blue. My file contains Alaskan Shelties as well as ROMs and ASSA Best of Breed dogs. Note that a dog may dead-end as far as merle transmission is concerned, but still be in the pedigree of a ROM through tri, bi or sable offspring.
