The Beautiful Blue Frenchie

The Blue Frenchie is a rare but beautiful member of the French Bulldog family. They are sweet little comical pups who garners tons of attention virtually everywhere their presence is known. Below, we are sharing some known and unknown facts about this rare breed. They Have Great Temperaments Do not read into the Blue Frenchie’s somewhat glum face, because they are far from it. They are widely known to be silly and entertaining!  They are well behaved with family, friends, strangers, and other dogs. They don’t require much space, adapting well in apartments or on a farm. With the exception of barking to announce the arrival of a visitor, they’re otherwise quiet and respectable doggie companions. They need a little patience during the training process, because they are Bulldogs after all, which means they can be stubborn! They are overall great as pets. Controversy and Legitimacy When choosing a Blue Frenchie, you’ll soon learn that there is some controversy surrounding their very existence. We’ll look deeper into some of those issues regarding their gene type and breed standards. The Blue Frenchie came about as a result of a recessive allele on one of the genes that determine the color of their coats. What would normally be black hair becomes blue in parts and in some cases, a strong blue color covers their entire body. These colors are highly attractive to many future owners. They’re striking and rare and rightfully stand out from standard French Bulldogs and other dogs, in general. As a result of their rare color, they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club or any other dog associations. Consequently, the Blue Frenchie may not be as desirable as a breed standard, especially for owners who wish to show their dogs. Final Thought Despite the controversy surrounding the Blue Frenchie, this does not affect their popularity and how they have increasingly become household favorites. They may look different from their French Bulldog counterparts, but they are equally desirable and well-mannered dogs. Come to our store near Miami Florida and see for yourself!
