dapple

a spotted, mottled or irregularly pigmented coat color pattern, usually with darker colors on a lighter background, seen in some Dachshunds. A similar pigmentation pattern in longhaired dog breeds such as collies is usually called merle. Also occurs commonly in horses of any color, but is most striking in grays. May be noticeable only when the coat is short.
