French Bulldog Rare Colors

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

Black & Tan, Blue & Tan, and Chocolate & Tan –These are the most beautiful and rarest of the French Bulldog marking patterns and colors. Chocolate French Bulldogs are not often seen. We absolutely love this color in


French Bulldog coat. This coat color can range anywhere from a lighter milk chocolate color to a dark bittersweet chocolate color. The chocolate fawns are also very pretty and it is a very subtle and elegant color, as it is with the blue fawn, with a chocolate mask and a light tipping of chocolate on the tips of the hairs. The chocolate fawns are a buttery yellow color when they are born. Nice!

Pure Black and Pure Blue – The diluted gene "d" changes the black pigment to blue. A blue is a black color that carries the "d" gene which causes the black hairs to become amazing blue coat. Although this gene is dishonored by the standards, it does not effect the dogs health or conformation.

Dark blue sable – A fairly rare color for the Frenchie, as well as one of the most beautiful, is the dark blue sable.

Blue Sable – Sables which carry a double copy of the dilute (blue) gene are called blue sables. They are similar in their coloration to the sables except that the black hairs are diluted to a bluish hue.

Sable – Another fairly rare coloring for the Frenchie is sable. Sable Frenchies have fawn coats of various shades with the hairs being tipped in black, with other black hairs mixed in fairly evenly into the coat. Sable Frenchies have a basic fawn coloring (from a lighter tan to a darker reddish coloring) with a blending of black and black tipped hairs, most prominent on the back, sides, and head.

Cream – Cream Frenchies are considered by many to be fawns or diluted fawns, but in actuality they are created by a double copy of the recessive gene. Creams can range in hue from deep amber to rich butterscotch to palest gold. This color is generally considered to be a dilution of fawn, minus the masking gene.

Blue-fawn – This is a color variation of blue, wherein a fawn coat is diluted with the blue hue being seen most clearly in the masking points on the face and on the upper body.

Fawn – Fawn is usually described as a tan in color, it can range from light to dark, and is a recessive gene. Frenchies can range from a very light tan to a dark reddish tan and everything in between. BlueCoat French Bulldog loves the beautiful colors.

The chocolate brindle is another rare Frenchie color which can range from a light milk chocolate brown to a fairly dark chocolate-brown.

Brindle Frenchies – A brindle Frenchie has a coat that is predominantly a dark color with lighter colored hairs mixed in. Brindle is typically described as a dark french bulldog color mixed with lighter colored hair mixed between, this coat color is a dominant gene.

A rare and highly popular color resulting from a gene which is naturally occurring but less common in french bulldogs. The appearance of this coat is very distinctive and one of our favorite colors.
