Are White French Bulldogs Rare?
The white French Bulldog is a rare breed. It is more common to find a blue, fawn, or red French Bulldog than its white counterpart. There are not so many white French Bulldogs because they are born with the same color as their mother’s coat. The more dominant color in the mother’s genes will match the pup’s color. This means a blue-eyed mother has a greater chance of having a blue-eyed puppy than one with brown eyes.
What is the Rarest Color of the French Bulldog?
The rarest color of the French Bulldog is the blue merle, alongside other coat colors such as Isabella, pure black, blue and tan, blue, lilac, merle, and even the chocolate Frenchie. This is because the white coat color is a recessive gene, so it’s hard to come by.

Common White French Bulldog Health Issues
The White French Bulldog is a very healthy breed but prone to some health ailments. This includes patellar luxation and brachycephalic syndrome.
Patellar luxation is a condition where the knee slips out of its groove in the thigh bone. The dog may be able to walk on it, but it will sometimes give out and cause them to limp. It can also cause pain, lameness, and arthritis if the condition worsens.
The brachycephalic syndrome occurs when there is insufficient airflow through the nasal passages because of a compressed facial structure. The result is difficulty breathing or snoring due to a narrowed windpipe. Many other symptoms also occur with this condition, and it can be life-threatening if left untreated.
