Blue French bulldogs are one of the rarest and are considered very beautiful among French Bulldogs coat colors. These dogs get attention anywhere they go and have a lot of eyes looking their way because of the color.
The color of these dogs is controversial as people have mixed opinions about them. Reputable breeders know that the health of this color is determined by how healthy their lineage is. The color of the dog does not determine the health of the dog. It depends on how the puppy was bred and how healthy the parents are at the time of breeding for the healthiest litter.
