I'm getting a red pem in March and I want to try and get a blue merl corgi after cardigan or pem and i know a breeder who does blue merl pems but I hear lots of things ranging from there is no such thng as a purebred blue pem that you have to have a cardigan in the mix. Also that it's just a serious fault..and no real breeder would breed them so I have no idea.

The merle gene does not exist in the Pembroke gene pool. If someone is breeding them, there is another breed in the family tree.
By the way, since a double merle breeding can result in blind and/or deaf pups, I can't respect a breeder who goes out of the way to introduce the merle gene into a breed that does not carry the gene, just to get a pretty color.

There are thoughtful reasons to outcross or create new breeds.

Introducing a color that has no practical benefit and can be harmful is not one of those reasons.

Blue merle does not exist in the pembroke breed. It's a mix. People usually use mini aussies or cardigans from what I've seen. Very frowned upon as far as breeders go.
