  • A Visual of English Bulldog Colors

    In the following article, I am going to do my best best describe bulldog colors using photographs.

    According to the breed standard set forth by the BCA, here is what is stated:

    "Color of Coat -- The color of coat should be uniform, pure of its kind and brilliant.
    The various colors found in the breed are to be preferred in the following order:"

    • 1. red brindle
    • 2. all other brindles
    • 3. solid white
    • 4. solid red, fawn or fallow
    • 5. piebald
    • 6. inferior qualities of all the foregoing.
    However, you should not let this particular standard of color deter you from starting your bulldog in dog shows/conformation.
    There are many champions that are not red brindle If you and your bully have what it takes, go for it!

    Fawn: Fawn has to be the most confusing color to bulldog owners!
    Fawn has a soft glow to it, and it comes in many variations and shades.

    Fawn, also known as 'Red Fawn':

    Fallow Fawn, also called 'Fawn' or 'Blonde':

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *


    According to the BCA, this is the description of piebald:

    "A perfect piebald is preferable to a muddy brindle or defective solid color.
    Solid black is very undesirable, but not so objectionable if occurring to a moderate degree in piebald
    patches. The brindles to be perfect should have a fine, even and equal distribution of the composite
    colors. In brindles and solid colors a small white patch on the chest is not considered detrimental.
    In piebalds the color patches should be well-defined, of pure color and symmetrically distributed."

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *


    Many bulldogs who are white have freckles that are super cute!

    There are many shades of Brindle, but the most common is red brindle, pictured below.

    Reverse Brindle:

    This is Saban, he has been lost since February of 2011. If you recognize this bully (as he is such a rare color),
    please contact @Luvin My Bullie. Last seen in Tuscumbia, Alabama.

    Brindles can come in so many various patterns and colors:

    I do hope you enjoyed this article for the visual beauty of the bulldogs various coat and colors.
    This is one of the most fun traits about the bulldog is that there is so many variations and
    patterns that bulldogs can be. Such a truly wonderful and unique breed!

      OK so I am still confused about red vs red fawn. Dozers akc papers listed him as red but the vet said fawn or red fawn. Whatever it was is my favorite btw Ty I think is a red fawn but heck idk .

      I love Brindle Bullies, but that may be because my baby boy made me a bit partial.

      I love all bully colors. But I think Fawn and Red Brindle are my favorites.

      I always wanted a reverse fawn brindle, but my puppy is light fawn and I love him, he gets great remarks on his color.
