While French Bulldog colors vary depending on the parents’ genes, what these incredible dogs are most known for is their adorable and charming behavior. They are excellent watchdogs but aren’t known to be big barkers.

Frenchies have a short, shiny, and smooth coat and their skin is typically loose and wrinkled especially around their faces.

There are a variety of French Bulldog colors from light to dark coat.

Rare-Colored French Bulldogs

While there are 11 approved French Bulldog colors, there are also 5 rare colors due to breeding influences. Although these colors are rare, many potential Frenchie parents seek out a pet with these colors. These rare French Bulldog colors include:

  1. Blue
  2. Lilac
  3. Blue and Tan
  4. Chocolate and Tan
  5. Blue Merle


Frenchies with these unique colors typically come with a price as the rare-colored Frenchies cost more due to being less common and more popular.

However, some buyers don’t care if the dog can’t compete. They are just happy being owners of a Frenchie that they believe to be “rare”.

Despite of the color you choose, the French Bulldogs are quirky and playful. Suitable for families with or without children, they can also get along with cats and other pets if properly introduced. French Bulldogs rarely bark and, while they need some exercise, they don’t require much, making them popular among city dwellers.
