French Bulldog Colors

French Bulldogs come in an array of beautiful and stunning colors. Some coat colors are considered “standard” that meaning the coat color is noted as one of the coat colors in the French Bulldog Colors standard established by a kennel club. Any color not noted by a kennel club is considered a “non-standard” color. In addition, a kennel club may also note some colors and patterns as disqualifications in the show ring. While some coat colors are not recognized by some registries such as AKC, they are however accepted by American registries such as ABKC, and foreign registries such as FCI and a couple of others.
We will discuss some of the standard and non-standard French Bulldog colors of our beautiful breed. In the future we will post example images of the below French Bulldog colors for reference.
