Who doesn’t love the lilac fawn French Bulldogs? They are just beautiful with the champagne coloring and light blue eyes!
But just how do you genetically get a Lilac Fawn Frenchie? For those of you who are just here for the cute Frenchie pics just scroll down!
Loci involved: K, A, B, & D
So the lilac coloring comes from a combination of the genes on the D-locus (blue gene) and the B-locus (chocolate gene). These genes are both recessive meaning they have to inherit two copies of the blue and chocolate gene to be lilac (d/d b/b). This gives the light grey color if they have also inherited the solid black or tricolor on the A-locus. If they receive one or more copies of the Kbr gene on the K-locus they will have brindling as well.
So how do you get lilac fawn then? They must have inherited the fawn or gene on the A locus, no Kbr brindling gene, and two copies of the blue gene and chocolate gene. Here’s an example of what your beautiful lilac fawn’s genes look like: ddbbayay kyky
