Lilac (Isabella) French Bulldog

Lilac French Bulldog

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

After birth, the puppies resemble a French Bulldog with a bluish-gray body. Upon maturing, they gradually turn lighter, with the lilac shade becoming 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 and other prominent breed registries do not recognize lilac as the French Bulldog’s standard coat color.

Grooming and maintaining them also requires a lot of money. As they have pink skin around their eyes and also in the area between their toes, you should gently clean their eyes and make them wear footwear in winter, especially when taking them out for a walk to prevent burns and frostbites.
