|Minpins and schnauzers can also come in dapple occasionally. Minpins and mini schnauzers used to come from the same litters ages ago, and so the merle gene is still around in both though it doesn't crop up too often. In fact outcrosses to minpins is one reason that doxies have dapple. but now it's really rare and disqualifying when it happens for minpins and schnauzers while it's celebrated in doxies.
Affenpinchers also have the gene, but very rarely expressed in American lines, as the rest of the world likes black-only.
Havanese can come in all colors as far as I know, but they do have to have black or chocolate skin on the nose, lips and eyelid rims. With the way that they are colored normally, I would suspect it to be so.
Cocker Spaniels can also be merle though I have never seen a merle one before.
