Lilac Merle French Bulldog

Lilac merle is one of the rarest color variations of French Bulldogs. The base coat is light cream, covered with grey-mottled patches of an ashy, almost silvery shade. It is not recognized by the AKC.

A notable feature of the lilac merle French Bulldog is the color of its eyes. The genes which give this dog the merle patches all over its body can sometimes provide similar patches over its eyes. This leads some lilac merle Frenchies to have blue eyes for their entire lives, unlike most other dogs which lose their blue eyes upon maturing. Some have a condition called heterochromia, leading to only one of their eyes becoming blue, but it is completely normal.

While they appear similar to the blue Frenchie, the lilac patches on their coats are a good way to tell the two apart.
