    The UK breed standard is

    "HEAD & SKULL: Skull almost flat between ears. Stop shallow. Length from base of stop to tip of nose about 1 1/2 inches. Nostrils black and well developed without flesh marks, muzzle well tapered. Lips well developed but not pendulous. Face well filled below eyes. Any tendency to snipiness undesirable. "

    your merlins nose is like mollys so i do think charlie has the wrong nose he also gets sore between his eyes and i think thats because of his nose being sqwashed back

    If Charlie's nose is more pushed back (or more level with his eyes- I find that an easy way to check) maybe he's a English Toy/King Charles Spaniel Cavalier cross? Is he smaller than Molly?
