Long-haired French Bulldogs have the recessive ‘L4’ gene.
When two Frenchies have this gene and are bred, they pass it to their offspring giving their Frenchie puppy two copies of the long hair gene. This results in producing that long hair.
Since this gene is a recessive trait, there is no genetic dominance. This means that two Frenchies with one copy of the long hair gene can be bred and have a long-haired dog. But this doesn’t mean that both parents actually display the long hair trait.
Since it is a recessive gene that maybe one or a few lines carried, it is said that it could have remained undetected for 100 plus years. Now, with the advancement of DNA testing it has become easier than ever to isolate the recessive genes and breed them to produce more fluffy frenchies! Check out this picture from the 1930’s!
Long-haired French Bulldogs are like every other Frenchie when it comes to their body size, shape, bat-like ears and their lovable personality.
However, their coats are what defines them from the rest.
They have medium-length wavy hair that covers their ears, head, back, and chest giving them a unique fluffy look. Our Fluffies’ hair feels so soft, almost like corn silk.
The maintenance is just as low as the standard French Bulldog: same bath time, ear cleaning and nail trims. The only difference is we like to blow-dry our Fluffies.
We have spent the last year researching endlessly on who will be our foundation for our Fluffy program. We hope you can be patient with us as we grow. We want to make sure our Fluffy Frenchies have the best lines that demonstrate, above all:
This will be a process that we are taking slowly and hope you understand what our goal is for this new line.
Our Fluffy Frenchie Puppies will be coming February 2022.
We would like to introduce the beginning of our Fluffy family!
“Fluff” will be our main stud. His is lilac fawn and FULL fluffy. His sire is the late Bad Action and we are looking forward to being able to breed him this summer! her is fully genetically clear and has a great temperament to boot. Fluff is owned by myself and Angie Gamez from No Nose Frenchies.
DNA: Ayat,dd,coco,Ee, L4
“Gizzy” was produced by Yessica Caz in Texas. jessica produces some absolutely amazing babies and we were so lucky to have scooped her up for our I Spy No Nose Program. She is a blue and tan trindle.
Gizzy is owned by myself and Angie from No Nose Frenchies.
