What is a Lilac Merle French Bulldog?
Lilac merle is one of the rarest variations of the beautiful merle pattern in French Bulldogs. Lilac merle Frenchies have a light cream base coat which is covered with grey mottled patches of an ashy, almost silver shade. Lilac merle French Bulldogs are often mistaken for blue merle Frenchies, but they are much more unique and harder to come by. To produce this rare and beautiful color, the parents have to carry the blue, chocolate and merle gene. They also have lighter colored eyes which are glowing red.
Lilac merle French Bulldogs are truly special and have some characteristics that other Frenchies don’t possess. One of these rare traits is their sparkling blue eyes. Since the merle gene affects the skin pigment as well, when a merle patch crosses the eye area the Frenchie will have bright forever blue eyes. Sometimes only one of the eyes will remain blue, which is a phenomenon called heterochromia. Not all merle Frenchies possess this rare trait, so if you’re looking for a Frenchie whose eyes will remain blue permanently, a lilac merle is a perfect option.
