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.
Sloane & Shazam 6/5/22. Phoenix is a darling little pure lilac pied that you can see at about the 2:30 mark. You can contrast her color with that of her pure blue pied brother, Admiral. Both colors are beautiful. It just depends on whether you like the darker or lighter gray color, and of course, the lilacs have the lighter colored eyes as adults.
Annie & Summit 6/5/22. Molly is a gorgeous lilac trindle pied, but since pieds have white lower legs, she will look like a pure lilac pied. The difference between the two is that trindles carry a copy of the brindle gene, whereas the pure lilacs do not, but the only place you will see a difference is on the lower legs of the trindles. You can see Molly at about the 6:20 mark.
Tempe & Hog 7/2/21. Norman is a handsome little lilac trindle boy that you can see at about the 2:30 mark. His sister, Allison, is also a lilac trindle that you can see at about the 6:50 mark. They have the genetics to be lilac & tans, except that they carry a single copy of the dominant brindle gene. This means that they can have a little brindling on the points areas on the lower legs, cheeks, brows, and bum, but some have almost none and look more like pure lilacs.
Julie & Cruz 7/8/21. Julie and Cruz have had some gorgeous puppies in their three litters, including our extremely handsome lilac fawn stud, Summit. One of their wonderful puppies is lilac sable Brooks, that you can see at about the 5:50 mark. He looks similar to blue sables and chocolate sables, except that he will have the lighter hazel, blue-gray eyes that lilacs are known for. The difference between a fawn and a sable is generally a single copy of tan points or recessive black. They don’t manifest completely, since they are both recessive genes, but they often manifest as sabling on otherwise fawn puppies.
Lilac fawn pieds are quite rare and beautiful as they are created from a double copy of blue, a double copy of chocolate, and a double copy of the pied gene. As with all lilacs, they will have gorgeous eyes that can be hazel, blue gray, or yellow gold. Buttercup & Summit 7/14/22. Inigo is a daring lilac fawn pied boy that you can see at about the 3:06 mark. Lindsey & Summit 1/28/22. Lulu is a sweet little lilac fawn girl that you can see at about the 4:23 mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pPiIIQ8g0ohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcL737oksck
Ella & Bo 1/7/22. DJ is a beautiful chocolate & tan pied girl with excellent conformation. Since she is a pied, you will not see the points on her lower legs, but you can see the tan starting to come out on her cheeks and brows. Points often become more prominent as puppies age. You can see her at about the 5:40 mark.
Annie & Summit 6/5/22. Duffy is a stunning chocolate & tan pied who you can see at about the 1:20 mark. She has wonderful points on her lower legs, cheeks, brows, and bum, which are striking against her striking pure dark chocolate coat. She will also have striking yellow-gold eyes when she is grown.
Amber & Summit 10/15/22. Ace is a very handsome heavy chocolate sable pied that you can see starting at about the 1:00 mark. Chocolates have brownish muzzles and paws, as opposed to black. They also have the gorgeous yellow-gold eyes, whereas other Frenchies (except for lilacs) have a shade of brown eyes.
Evie & Summit 10/13/22. Eve is a darling, petite, chocolate trindle that you can see starting at about the 4:10 mark. She will have a pure chocolate coat, with the exception of the potential for a little brindling in the points areas, i.e., lower legs, cheeks, brows, and bum. She will also have the gorgeous yellow-gold eyes that chocolates are known for.
