A French Bulldog’s appearance is often associated with its health and temperament. Those with white fur can be gentle with children, but they can be stubborn and temperamental. The breed is known to be sensitive to noises and may pass out from exercise. Because of the Merle gene, French Bulldogs should not be left alone near water. While a healthy, purebred lineage is recognized by the American Kennel Club, it’s still recommended that you socialize your new pup with other dogs.
The color of a French Bulldog comes from a recessive gene, which means it inherited one copy from each parent. It is impossible to test for the recessive gene, so you will have to take an eye examination of the French Bulldog to find out if it has the recessive gene. The recessive gene causes the coat color to appear cream instead of white. However, a cream colored French Bulldog’s coat has a clean look and a distinct lighter edge around the ears.
A French Bulldog with a predominantly white coat is known as a White Frenchie. These dogs are usually all white, although solid white Frenchies can have patches of another color. While the White Frenchie has been around for a few years, it’s only recently become popular. The popularity of a solid-white Frenchie is thought to have to do with the belief that they are a rare breed. But the fact that they are so rare is not the only reason that they are so coveted.
The AKC recognizes nine different colors of French Bulldogs, and the white one is the most common. Fawn Frenchies range in color from light brown to red fawn. Some fawn Frenchies may have black masks on their faces. Regardless of its color, a fawn Frenchie is a very popular breed among families. Fawn Frenchies are easy to find from a reputable breeder, and they won’t cost as much as a white or a cream and black one.
Albinism is a genetic condition that causes white coat color. Albinos are rare and both parents must contribute genes to create the albino puppy. While a French Bulldog with albinism is a completely white dog, a partially albino French Bulldog may have some underlying coloration. This causes the appearance of white in patches of color that weren’t previously white. In the case of the white French bulldog, the coat color may be diluted or piebald.
Pied French Bulldogs are a variation of the white French Bulldog. Their coat is a creamy eggshell color with colored patches on their neck, back, and head. These patches can be black, blue, yellow, or other colors. They are typically large and few in number and may vary in size and color. For those with white French Bulldogs, the color is very similar to the background of the pied French Bulldog.
Extreme piebald Frenchies have two copies of the piebald gene, while spotted piebalds only have one copy. This gene is associated with some health problems, including deafness. Nevertheless, it does not cause deafness or blindness. If you find a French Bulldog with a white coat, make sure to look for the correct breeder. It is important to note that French bulldogs with a white coat can be double merle or albino, which are both genetically similar.
Merle French Bulldogs are rare in the breed. They have an unusual, rare coat pattern that resembles a cow’s coat. While the Merle gene isn’t harmful, it is difficult to breed these dogs. AKC does not recognize these dogs, which is why they are not commonly bred. Because of the controversy surrounding this gene, it’s hard to find a Frenchie with a merle coat.
