The dam of my pup was black and white, I never got to see his sire. In the litter there were 2 b/w pups, 1 Tri (wiley) and one blue merle. So does that make the sire Blue merle? What are your thoughts?

Yes, one parent has to be merle to produce merle pups.

I don't have any papers for him. The gal said both of his parents were agility/ working dogs. She had just been in a car accident that left her paralyzed and was getting out of the business. Prior to her accident she was a very accomplished agility dog trainer/breeder. I didn't really care if he was registered or not because I was just going to neuter him.

To produce a merle one of the parents has to be a merle. As to what color the sire was he would be a red merle and the dam just not be a red carrier. or he could be a blue merle. To get a tri you woudl also need the tri gene so good chance the sire was a tri merle.
