FBDCA Officers and
the Communications Committee have been working on a
webpage to educate the public about Frenchie coat colors
approved by our Standard and the fad or rare colors
that disqualify a Frenchie from being shown. The page
clearly explains why the public should avoid buying
Frenchies in fad colors.
FAD: an intense
and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially
one that is short-lived and without basis in the object’s
qualities; a craze
In the last few years, ads for French bulldogs in RARE
COLORS have exploded all over the Internet. Not only
blue (in every combination; blue brindle, blue fawn,
blue pied); but also black-and-tan, liver, and, appallingly,
even merle. The more widespread the recessive genes
for these colors become in our gene pool, the greater
the risk that reputable breeders will at some point
find their own lines contaminated with them.
NO TO "DESIGNER DOG BREEDERS"
please stay far away from the blue gene in Frenchies
it is a recessive gene and dogs will be prone blindness,
horrid skin conditions and deafness!!! They
are not rare. There is a reason why good
breeders don't breed them!!!!
