We have been breeding high-quality Frenchies for several years now and we have learned quite a bit in the process, but we are smart enough to know that we haven’t learned everything. Occasionally, we will get requests from authors or organizations regarding the posting of articles that they think might be insightful to our clients and visitors to our website. We screen these articles and if we believe that they can provide additional knowledge that will allow our clients and site visitors to make more informed and better decisions and become better pet owners, we do agree to some of these requests.

Hopefully, you will find the articles posted under this heading to be educational and enjoyable. If you have any questions or comments regarding them please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Black Brindle Pied

Brindle pieds (like fawn, blue-fawn, blue brindle, and chocolate brindle pieds) are all unique and very attractive. Brindle pieds have various amounts of black on their white coats with varying amounts of brindling on the black areas. Some brindle pied Frenchies are mostly white while others are mostly black (like Brynlee). Some have almost no brindling in the black areas while others have quite a bit. If you are looking for a unique Frenchie a brindle pied may be just what you are looking for. We have produced quite a few of these gorgeous dogs and will produce many more in the future.

Fawn Pied

Many people just love the pieds because no two are alike – they all have their own distinct patterning. Fawn pied Frenchies are basic white and contain various numbers and patterns of fawn patches (which patches can be varying shades of fawn, even varying on the same Frenchie). Some pieds have only a few patches while others have several. Some of the patches are small (silver dollar size) making these Frenchies mostly white while others have large patches which meld into other patches making these Frenchies more fawn than white. Some of the fawn pieds have a black mask while others have lighter masks. Here are some examples of various fawn pieds and I think we can all agree they are beautiful!

Fawn

Fawn Frenchies run the gamut from a very light tan or caramel coloring to a dark reddish color (the dark reddish Frenchies are often called red fawns). All Fawn Frenchies have a fairly uniform coloring (although some of the lighter tan Frenchies often have darker tinting on their backs and heads) and fawn Frenchies do not have any brindling. Regardless of the fawn tint, they are all very handsome/pretty and we have produced some outstanding examples of almost all of the fawn shades and will continue to do so.

Sable Pied

Sable pieds are very beautiful; and, like all pieds, they are very unique in their patterning. But, in addition, they are unique because of the coloring of the darker patches on their white background. Whereas fawn pieds have fairly uniform fawn color patches and brindle pieds have fairly uniform black patches with some brindling, sable pieds have sable colored patches – which means that their patches have a fawn base with black tipped hairs and black hairs mixed in. Some of these sable patches can be quite distinctive in coloration from other patches on the same Frenchie. These truly are very unique and very beautiful dogs.

Cream

Sassy (previously known as Sally) was held back for our breeding program and she, along with her brother, Snoopy, were the very first creams produced here at BlueHaven. Sassy is very special in the fact that she is not only a cream, but she is also a blue. Cream is dominant, and therefore, even though she is technically a blue as well, her coat is cream colored. As you can see, she is beautiful and we are excited to see what’s in store for her in the future. Click on pictures to enlarge and to view full images of Sassy. Previous Next Breach is a handsome cream boy from Sydney and Wally. In this video, the puppy named Dee is a beautiful solid cream girl. When this video was taken we thought Tristan was also a solid cream but he turned out to be a cream pied – his spot came out about a week later, which explained why he was so light.https://youtu.be/-vzrgxxuEh0Sassy had a litter with 3 adorable creams.https://youtu.be/WBeevkLGz6g

Black Brindle

Standard brindle Frenchies have a predominant black coat with lighter colored hairs mixed in. The lighter colored hairs can be virtually non existent (a seal brindle appears to be pure black, but close inspection will reveal some lighter hairs) to the lighter hairs being more prominent than the dark hairs (which results in a reverse brindle). A tiger brindle has relatively uniform bands of brindling on the body resembling tiger stripes. We have produced and will continue to produce some outstanding brindle puppies which range from the gorgeous black seal brindle (like Raven and Hunter) to pups having enough brindling to approach the tiger brindle (like Storm). Storm (AKA: Angus) has a beautiful coat with lots of brindling. Click on pictures to enlarge and to view full images. Previous Next Grant has a very small amount of brindling.

Black Trindle

Aurora is a pretty black trindle girl, which means she has the “at/a” DNA for a black & tan. She will be pure black on almost her entire body, like her sister Belle, but her lower legs and facial points will eventually have some brindling, although it may be very difficult to see. She is a mellow little lady and just wanted to go to sleep during the pictures.Click on pictures to enlarge and to view full images of our ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
