About Blues

After a heated conversation with another breeder regarding my   decision to purchase a blue frenchie for my breeding line I feel the   need to share with you why I made this decision which is the reason   for writing this page.

First of all I would like to start by saying...I am a responsible breeder,   I am aware that every dig is NOT meant to be bred. For this reason   when selecting my males & females for my breeding line I ONLY   choose the best quality dogs. I ONLY select dogs without health   problems and those that represent the BEST standards of the breed.

People ask...why are French bulldogs so expensive? These are just a   few reasons why. For these reasons and more buyers should be careful   when  purchasing from breeder's selling "cheap puppies". The majority   of these type of breeders ONLY care about the money NOT the health   of the dog.

I have owned  twenty five French bulldogs since 1987 and NOT one of   them has EVER had health issues! My dogs are given the best of care,   nutrition and quality of life with our family.

I think the blue French Bulldogs are just beautiful but wouldn't breed   them just for that reason. I needed to be sure I could produce healthy   puppies breeding blues, which is why I spent years of researching this   beautiful exotic color before adding them to my breeding line and why   I am sharing my findings with you.

What I found is the blue (gray) color comes from a rare gene called the   dilute gene (d) which changes the coat color from black to blue (gray)   and is also responsible for the change in their eye color. It is this rare   gene (d) that makes the blue French bulldog rare and is why there is a   higher price tag for the blue & chocolate colored French bulldogs then   the regular colored French bulldogs.  They are NOT more expensive   because blue breeders want to scam you into thinking they are rare   because all they are is a defect of the breed...THIS IS NOT TRUE!!

I learned during my research there is no clear "beginning" with the   blue colored dogs. Fact is there are many types of breeds that carry   this rare dilute gene (d) and the French bulldogs are no different. It is   a naturally occurring gene, it is NOT a defect!! When you speak of the   gene pool for French bulldogs you must include the dilute gene (d) as   it DOES exist in our breed. There are breeders that believe the blue   French bulldogs will "pollute" the gene pool, however I feel since the   dilute gene (d) has been in the gene pool since the beginning and   merely effects the hair and eye color, has no bearing on the dogs   conformation, temperament or health, how could the dilute gene (d)   be considered to be contaminate? 

I LOVE The blue French bulldogs!! again spent several years   researching the dilute gene (d) that's responsible for this beautiful   rare color. held off on purchasing a blue because of all the negative   controversy about them and their so called health issues that is said   to be related to this blue dilute gene (d). What I found in all my   research is there is NO PROVEN FACT that the blue coat has anymore   health issues then the normal colored French bulldog. Does this mean   that no blue French bulldog will ever have health issues? of course   not. But I feel my findings have proven that the coat and eye color of   the dog has no correlation with health issues and are NOT RELATED.   That the health issues in the blue color is NOT do to coloring but to   poor breeding judgment and inbreeding. My findings lead me to believe   that one should be more concerned with the quality of the dog and the   integrity of the breeder rather then the dog's eye & coat color.

So I ask the question.... Why are French bulldogs not allowed in the   breed standard? The ONLY answer I got when I asked this question   was the blue color in a French bulldog is considered to be an   undesirable color, as well as the chocolate/liver colored French   bulldogs which are also rare. This may have been the case back in 1911   when the disqualifications were first written but doesn't seem to be   the case now. Blue French bulldogs are more popular now then ever   before and are in high demand. I feel if the only known reason the   blue colored French bulldogs was not included in the breed standard   was because it was an undesirable color back then and the blue color   is desirable now, why shouldn't the breed standard include the blue   French bulldogs and why shouldn't they be shown? 

For these reasons and NO known facts to health issues caused by the   dilute gene (d) I made a decision to add the blue French bulldogs to my   breeding line. On June 7, 2011 I added my first little blue brindle girl   & since I have added nineteen more blue frenchies which all were in   perfect health.

I am aware that French bulldogs remain the topic of a much heated   controversy. I know there will be those that will disagree with my   decision, this is your right and I respect that, but on the other hand   know it is also my right to own and or breed blue French bulldogs if I   desire. I don't care to argue my decision with anyone so PLEASE DO   NOT contact me with your opinion. I feel I did my research, I love the   blue French bulldogs and have for quite some time now. I couldn't find   ANYTHING solid enough to prove or link the dilute gene (d) to health   related issues in the blue French bulldogs. With this being said I based   my decision on my findings and what I feel in my heart.

My advice to anyone thinking about purchasing a blue French bulldog   is to consider the reputation and integrity of the breeder first and   foremost and to be concerned primarily with the health of the dog   rather then the coat color. To research the facts for yourselves, not to   trust any one source or one side of the debate because everyone has   presuppositions that influence how they view this subject.

The blue French bulldogs come in solid blue/blue brindle, blue fawn,   blue piebald (white with blue markings) and blue fawn piebald (white   with blue fawn markings). Most often the eyes in a blue French   bulldog will start out a beautiful sapphire blue as a puppy but will   most generally will turn to a shade of brown as an adult. I'm not s   saying that all blue French bulldogs don't have blue eyes, I'm just   saying that mine don't and the majority of them don't.

I also would like to add...Even thou blue French bulldogs are   disqualified for show do to the blue mouse color and are not   considered to be of standard breed, the blue French bulldogs can still   be AKC registered through American Kennel Club. Gray & white is the   available color for the solid blue/blue brindle. Gray & white piebald is   the color you would go with for blue piebald. There is not a blue color   substituted for blue fawn or blue fawn piebald therefore they would   have to be registered under the regular fawn piebald and fawn color.

View my "Up Coming Litter" page for information as to when I will be   expecting my next litter of blue puppies.

Thank you...
