    Good morning all,

    My Frenchie has just given birth to a beautiful litter of 10 healthy pups who are around 3 weeks old.

    I’m just in the process of registering them, but I’m struggling with the colour of two of them. 8 of which are blue, just like the parents, but 2 of which are more of a cream shade, I’m thinking possibly Lilac? I’m a little bit lost with it TBH. Helps required! Not the easiest to see via the pictures, but you can clearly see they aren’t blue!

    I presume you are trying to register them with the KC? If so they only permit colours of fawn, brindle or pied. All other colours will be registered as not recognised

    The KC will not register these colours. As Siskin says, these would be "not recognised" and would not qualify as show dogs.

    "All other colours highly undesirable, including solid black, black and white, black and tan, mouse, grey/blue, liver/chocolate and all patterns of these colours."

    Yeah I get that, from registering mum and dad, but their still both listed as Blue on the KC document, just unsure what to put these two little unique ones through as. If you were to label them a colour, what would you opt for?

    Out of curiosity, why did you breed two blue frenchies - an unrecognized color that is also associated with skin issues?

    Suppose the main reason given I own both of them. Both fit and healthy, so no issues with health at my end.

    Oh okay.
    Are you interested in more ethical, responsible ways of breeding? More information about health and health testing?

    Have the parents been BOAS graded through the Kennel Club scheme? Many breeders often don't own both parents, as it's unusual to own that perfect match.

    Bulldogs and flat-faced dogs are a hot topic here. According to the BWG (Brachycephalic Working Group), Kennel Club registrations for Frenchies were the highest in 2020 since records began, over 39,000 Frenchie puppies. We're definitely not short of Frenchies. https://www.vetclick.com/news/dog-w...ced-puppies-ahead-of-festive-season-p7888.php
