The Blue French Bulldog is one of the fastest growing dog breeds in America and abroad. The breed itself is the already popular and increasing in popularity, The French Bulldog. This breed actually originated from Englad as they were selectively bred from the English Bulldog to be a more French bulldog under $1000 compact and toy-like breed. They were selectively bred to be much smaller than their tank-like cousins, The English Bulldog. Later the breed was brought back to France and their new names stuck. These cute, cuddly, smashed face bullies are to die for. The provide the toughness of a mini bulldog and the personality of a clownish couch potato. Blue Frenchie Bulldogs are no different except for their obvious difference in color and markings. The “blue” coat color on these precious mini Bulldogs is a result of a ‘d’ diluted gene. The blue color in general for most or all other dog breeds is in direct relation to the diluting of the black base color in dogs. At some point the black color was diluted to create the blueish hue that the this Bulldog displays today. The Blue Frenchie is also called “mouse” in color or gray, which is in fact what you see and not blue in actuality.
Now there are several different types of Blue French Bulldogs also lovingly refereed to as Frenchies. These are the most common colors of the Blue French Bulldogs:
- Solid Blue French Bulldogs
- Blue Pied Blue Frenchies
- Blue Brindle Frenchis
- Blue Fawn Blue Frenchies
- and the very rare Blue and Tan French Bulldogs
The Blue French Bulldog puppies can be a costly purchase as well as they are so rare and so desirable that most start at a respectable price of $2,500 and ranging upwards of $5,000 and even $10,000 for extremely rare specimens with special characteristics and markings. Not all Frenchie puppies in a particular litter turn out with these types of blueish coat colors. But all are considered to carry the “blue gene” therefore they are labeled “blue carriers”. Blue carriers are also very valuable as they have the ability to produce the diluted blue coats in their puppies although they don’t display the coloration themselves.
The great thing about these Blue Frenchies is that they are most always sold with no breeding rights or as pet quality companion pets only. This is a great thing ion that this allows the breed to remain exclusive and obviously allows the breed to stay from being over bred and over populated in the US and around the world.
