The white French Bulldog, rare and prized
The all-white, or mostly white French Bulldog for sale in United States is less common than other colors and patterns. It is also called pale. There is a number of genetic factors that can cause this unique coat in the white French Bulldog. These include albinism and a mix of brindle and merle genes.
The white coat color is one of recognised, standard Frenchies' colors. White French Bulldog puppies are purebreds; the difference is the dog in question has a white or predominantly white coat instead of the more common brindle, cream or fawn.
White Frenchie — albino or not?
Does having a white coat mean a white Frenchie puppy is indeed an albino? A number of genetic factors can contribute to this. The albino factor is the least prevalent.
Albino animals in any species are pretty rare. Both parents must contribute their genes for a puppy to be born with albinism. A true albino white Frenchie puppy lacks pigment in all areas where it is usually present.
The eyes may look pink, blue or amber, while the skin appears pinkish as blood vessels show. A partial albino lacks pigmentation in some parts of the body only.
A leucistic French Bulldog has a light-colored coat and a normal eye color. Leucism is not dissimilar to albinism. Different genes prevent the pigment cells from doing their job properly. Partial leucism is the mechanism behind the common dog markings like the popular piebald color pattern.
Finally, brindle or “pied” (piebald) French Bulldogs have predominantly white coats with markings.
A white French Bulldog can inherit the merle color gene from one or both parents. A puppy with one merle gene is called a single merle. This happens when just one parent contributes the gene.
