Blue French Bulldog

A blue-colored French bulldog is perhaps the cutest and coolest among the lot. Behind such a unique and uncommon coloration is a recessive diluted ‘d’ gene diluting their black coat to blue resulting in a bluish-gray body. They can either appear solid blue or even have white patches on their chest and stomach. The blue dogs may even have shades of brindle, tan, fawn, or pied on their body if bred with Frenchies of this pattern. ‘Mouse’ or ‘gray’ are the other synonyms used for describing the blue French bulldogs.

Despite its popularity, the AKC and no other prominent breed registry recognize blue as the French bulldog’s standard color. The French Bulldog Club of America refers to the blue variant as a ‘fad’ or faulty color discouraging their breeding.

Whether the blue French bulldog suffers from increased health problems than the other color variants is debatable. Some breeders opine that two healthy parents with a recessive gene would undoubtedly lead to a healthy puppy. Yet, veterinarians hold them susceptible to certain skin-related conditions like the Color dilution alopecia.

Downsizing the blue French bulldog for added cuteness results in the teacup or miniature varieties that are not desirable due to impending health hazards it may cause.

Like other French bulldogs, the blue ones are also short-haired though a few have long hairs appearing, Fozzy, a blue Frenchie puppy being one of them.
