A locus “AY” Fawn and Sable

Fawn is when the dog is sandy color in color.

Fawn and Sable French Bulldogs can also come in all shades from light tan to deep red.

Shades depend on the other locus alleles contributed.

They can be blue fawn, chocolate fawn, chocolate, lilac, or Isabella fawn.

These dogs cannot express tan or tricolored points.

This color is also dominant and it only takes one copy of the “ay” allele to express.

Only cream and brindle are dominant over fawn sable.
