Olde English Bulldogge Colors
What are the characteristics of the colors (explanation, cost, recessive vs. dominant)?
Traditional Olde English Bulldogge colors include all versions of brindle, sable, fawn, and red. Brindle is a dominate color and sable or any non-brindle color is recessive. Black, blue, chocolate, and lilac combined with differing amounts of white and/or brindle are all rare colors and the result of several (three to four) combinations of recessive gene pairs. Tri colors include blue, black, chocolate, and lilac. The tri coloration incorporates the “point’ colors into the coat markings. Point colors, including eye pips, cheek markings, and leg socks, are the result of an additional pair of recessive genes. A lilac tri puppy has up to five pairs of recessive genes that create this very rare color combination.
Foundation dogs in our program can produce many of these rare colors and were purchased or produced for a higher price and a greater financial investment. Traditional colored bulldogs that do not always have the genotype to produce the rare colors however, many of the fawn and brindle foundation dogs at Olde South carry the recessive genes and can produce some rare colored pups depending on the breeding pair.
How do I reserve a puppy from Olde South?
The best way to start the adoption/purchase process is to put down a pick of the litter deposit. You can use this link to submit via PayPal. Only clients that have a deposit with us are contacted when we have pups on the way or available. We work very hard to up hold our stellar reputation as an award-winning kennel of Olde English Bulldogges and the number one Olde English Bulldogge breeder in the south. As a result our pups are highly sought after. The breeding schedule for upcoming litters is posted and updated regularly on our home page. It is not likely a client will be able to get a puppy if they wait for the pups in any upcoming litter to reach 2 or 3 weeks of age. Most all our pups are spoken for before birth by clients who have put down a pick of the litter deposit. Because we are a very very busy kennel, I am not able to contact you to “let you know we have pups available” if you have NOT put down a deposit. All clients that have placed a deposit are considered VIPs and have preference before any pups go on the market. Please follow my Facebook and check the website often I do update regularly.
