    Default Color curiosity

    I am wondering if anyone can educate me on bulldog color. I have read of rare and highly desired and such, but is there a standard? Is there colors that are bred for? Is there colors that are tried to bred out? I'm not sure if I'm being clear with my question. I only ask out if curiosity. I have found my bulldog soul mate. My family chose Henry from personality. Something about him stole our hearts.

    This is straight off AKC's website for colors.

    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. Note: 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.

    I hope this helps to answer your question.

    Need to dumb it down a little. Does this mean red brindle would be solid colored with an acceptable white chest? Same with other brindle? Solid white, meaning no color patches anywhere? Solid red fawn or fallow, I'm assuming the white chest still applies. Piebald means only white head? I'm not sure. And what does inferior qualities of all the foregoing mean? Thanks for the help.

    @Roseann OK any brindle can have white in it, and from what I can see of your boy, his color is acceptable. White can be solid white or white with brindle or solid colors, like the red and whites. Pied can have a solid white face or have color on their face. To be honest I have no idea what "inferior qualities of all the foregoing means.

    @Davidh I "think" one of the "inferiors" refers to various shades of color on the same dog. Like Blue is Red/White. But, he can also be Fawn/White depending on where you look. His sides are much lighter than his top. He doesn't have a uniform color.

    The link with pictures did help. Thank you. I believe that would make Henry a piebald. (I think) Very interesting. I've been doing a lot of reading on my little Henry. I may be obsessed! I keep saying he's got the voodoo! I have no experience with english bulldogs so I do my best to learn. I just couldn't seem to comprehend the colors. Thank you all very much.

    I agree, I think it means not solid in color. Like mostly fawn with white markings, mostly brindle with white markings, ect.
