The genetics behind the coloring.
For the lilac color to be expressed the pup must carry two copies of the blue gene (d/d), two copies of the untestable chocolate gene (co/co) to make this beautiful color.
What about lilac pied French Bulldogs?
Pied means they have a white base and in this case black patches. The pied gene is expressed through the S locus and is a recessive gene. This means it needs to inherit two copies of the pied gene to be expressed. They use a capital S to show that the Frenchie is a carrier of the pied gene and n to show it is not. For example, if your pup is pied it must carry two copies of S (S, S).
Lilac Merle French Bulldogs
Now you can have a lilac merle Frenchies as well. You’ll see a variety of coloring in lilac merles. I have found that many of the merles keep a speckling of blue in their eyes as they age and turn a pretty yellowish, green color. Merle is a dominate gene so it only needs one copy the merle gene to be expressed. You don’t breed merles to other merles so you will not have two copies of merle.
Lilac and Tan French Bulldogs
On the A locus, At gives the pups tan points. It’s dominant over “a” so if your pups inherits (At,a) he will be black with tan points. If he inherits two copies of the tan points gene (At, At) he will be black and tan points as well.
There are several more varieties you can have as well such as lilac merle pied and lilac merle with tan points. If you’re asking me, all are beautiful.
