Blue French Bulldogs are a rare color coming in several variations such as blue brindle, blue pied, solid blue, reverse brindle, and more.

We have a litter due second week of April that will likely have blues! Levi is blue and momma is fawn but carries blue and chocolate.
For those of you Frenchie lovers who are interested in the genetics behind the blue color, here it is. This of you who are just here for the cute Frenchie pics, scroll down. The blue gene is actually a gene that dilutes the color of genes on the K and A-locus. The K locus determines if there is bridling or not. The A locus determines if the Frenchie is solid black, tri-color, fawn, or sable. If the puppy is solid black (determined by A-locus) and inherits two copies of the dilute gene of the D-locus, the black coloring is diluted to the blue color.
French Bulldog Blue Male: Adam
If the frenchie is fawn (determined by A-locus) and inherits two dilute genes on the D-Locus then, he will be blue fawn which is more of a champagne color.
Blue Fawn Frenchie: Nina
The bridling again is determined by the K-locus. If they inherit one or two copies of the brindle gene they will express brindling in their coat making the beautiful blue brindle French Bulldog. They can express a light amount of brindle like or be like Remy here who is a reverse brindle and expresses lots of brindling in his coat.
Blue Brindle French Bulldog: Light amount of brindling
Remy Reverse Blue Brindle French Bulldog: lots of brindling
You can even have blue pied French Bulldogs. Piebald is a recessive gene. This means in order to be pied they have to carry two copies of the gene on the S-locus. This creates beautiful patterns of splashes of color varying from large quantities of patches or maybe just a tiny dot on their tail or elsewhere. Those who only have a tiny dot appear to be white and are considered to be extreme pieball. Again they have to inherit two copies of the black gene on the A-locus + 2 pie-bald genes on the S locus to be blue pied.
Romeo is a blue brindle pieball.
Poor Romeo…he doesn’t like the cold. LOL! Yes, I let him right in to warm his ears by the fireplace.
Sophie is an extreme pied
She’s not an extreme blue pieball but you get the idea what the extreme pieball looks like
Of course there is blue with tan points as well. In order for this color to be expressed. We are looking at the K-locus, A-locus, and the D-locus. K will determine if there is brindling expressed in the tan points or not. Just one copy of the brindle gene will allow for brindling to occur. At the A-locus they can inherit one or two copies of the tan points gene (At/a or At/At) for the tan points to be displayed. But remember to be blue they must also inherit two copies of the dilute gene one D-locus. Overall to have a solid blue with tan points there genes must look like this ky/ky At/a d/d or ky/ky At/At d/d.
