Heavenly Bailey (Merlequin Great Dane)

Sabra's Heavenly Bailey is 6 Months old. She is a Female Merlequin Great Dane and was our first puppy from our Zia.

She loves to play with her rag doll. She thinks that she owns the bed.


She is so loving, and sweet. I fell in love with the Great Danes. Her mommy just had a litter of 11. She is a delight to play with and watch all the silly things they do. I guess that why Scooby-Doo won everyones hearts.

OH, she is such a cute dog! I miss my dog so much, she wasn't a great dane but we had to put her down. It's cool to know that our dog friends are part of our families. Yours is a great looking girl!

She Is a Merliquin because of her gray color and black spots. She is the result of a Harliquin breeding. Merliquin can be different shades but usually are gray. A Harliquin has a White Base and black spots sometimes will have a little merle on them. I'am glad you enjoyed the pictures.Here is a picture of one of our 11 puppies. He is a Harliquin and is 5 weeks old.

Bailey is beautiful but NOT a merliquin ! A merliquin is a white dog with sparse silver patches. Bailey is a mantle merle.

I think you're still confused about the difference between harlequin, merle, & merlequin - which is very concerning, since you appear to be breeding this color family :(

Below is a picture of a merlequin. Note that she has a white base coat, with patches of merling. A harlequin would have a white base coat with patches of black and (hopefully) just a minimal amount of merling. A dog with merling over it's entire body would be called a merle.

Bailey would just be considered a merle, but a very pretty one :) I see she has the white snout, toes, tail tip, & chest. If she also has a white collar aound her neck or at least part way around her neck, she would be called a mantle marked merle.

Here is another example of a "real" Merlequin Great Dane, our 9 week old puppy, Bella. Yours looks more like a Merle, NOT a Merlequin...Still a beautiful dog, just not a Merlequin. A "true" Merlequin has defined Merle spots, instead of a Harlequin which has defined black spots. It's pretty much a moot point anyway, since a Merlequin isn't an "Official" Dane color and isn't recognized by AKC.
