It's difficult to tell from the photos on her profile, but between the blue eyes and what looks like spotting down her back, I would call her red merle.

An American Pit Bull Terrier as recognized by the UKC can never be merle, though. So if she is supposed to be purebred, she either isn't merle or is from an accidental mixed breeding. Merle patterning is not a trait that can randomly show up in an individual. It's in a breed, or it is not.

If you're calling her APBT as a general type, it's very possible. There are plenty of bully breeds and breeds that will carry a bully-ish look in a mix that are merle.

I don't see the Merle in her. She's a Pit Bull.
