Lilac (Isabella) French Bulldog

A lilac or Isabella coat in a French bulldog is the rarest color variety. The recessive diluted ā€˜dā€™ gene responsible for the blue color in Frenchies also results in lilac coloration. An Isabella or lilac coat is mostly grayish-brown, occurring due to the dilution of the black, liver, or red genes.

After birth, the puppies resemble the French bulldog having a bluish-gray body. Upon maturation, they gradually turn lighter, with the lilac shade getting more prominent. They also have a grayish-brown or pale pink nose alongside pale pink markings in the area surrounding their mouth and eyes. The Lilac Frenchies also possess a unique coloration varying blue to yellow or even light brown.

The American Kennel Club, Kennel Club, and other prominent breed registries do not recognize lilac as the French bulldog’s standard coat color.
