    I wonder if blues are registered with AKC because they are being submitted as "white with brindle markings" (aka Pied), which is an "allowed" color.... maybe that is how they (breeders) are getting around it..... I have not idea.
    Since my pups mom is solid "blue brindle" that is probably exactly what they do...
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend never owned a French Bulldog.

    We are not in the market for a new frenchie yet but probably within the next 3-4 years we will have a second one. I have been doing some research and have found two breeders about 4-5 hours away that appear to be reputable. Neither will ship and both have a very extensive application and insist on a phone screening. My only problem is I would be afraid to ask some of the questions above for fear of offending a breeder. I am such a wimp and too trusting, however, for frenchies, the demand far outweighs the supply, and I am afraid someone is going to think we are too aggressive. Thoughts?

    I wouldn't think a reputable breeder would be offended by you asking questions. They would most likely be happy that you have done research and are taking the time to find out as much information as possible. You are simply being a responsible buyer.

    I agree. Reputable breeders will expect a lot of questions. Before we decided on a Frenchie I went to a rotti breeder and ended up spending 2 hours visiting and asking questions. I was almost invited over for dinner. lol! Ask as many questions as you want. If a breeder does not want to answer then I would walk away.

    Same! We were with the breeder for almost 2 hours, as well as emails and phone calls beforehand. I took a list of questions! And he said he would be worried when people don't ask questions. If they're decent, they won't mind one bit.
