Bullistik Pick Your Poison ‘Sarin’

Contrary to what some folks might think, I don’t just breed “non-standard” colors. In fact, I started my love affair with Frenchies back in 1990 and my first male, Chevalier, was a black brindle, and my first female, Boutique, was a cream.

I did not purchase my first non-standard colored Frenchie until 2002. The brother and sister pair were blue brindle (Levi) and blue fawn (Bluebonnet). Before that time, I spent most weekends showing my standard colored Frenchies in AKC conformation competitions and bred 50+ Champions between 1991-2008.

But, back to the lovely SARIN. She is a standard (eligible to compete in AKC shows) black mask fawn, and her mother is a standard cream, but her sire is my scrumptious, chocolate fawn male, Bullistik Absent of Malice.

Sarin was born September 28, 2020 so just 6 months old in these photos. This girl is all about bully SUBSTANCE. You would be hard pressed to find this much bone on an adult Frenchie, and that width and depth of chest is phenomenal, especially in light of Sarin’s age.

Of course once you see her sire and dam, Malice & Poison, you will understand how it is possible for this 6 month old puppy to look the way she does.

Sarin carries chocolate (cocoa) from her sire, cream (e) from her dam, and tricolor (at) from one or the other, as both Malice and Poison carry (at). Lucky for me, Sarin (like her mother) does not carry the spotting (S) gene so she is pied free, meaning she can only produce solid colored puppies regardless of what color male she is bred to in the future.

Make no mistake, I love PIEDS, but it is beneficial to have some pied-free dogs in the breeding program when you are breeding tricolor Frenchies.

What makes tricolors so compelling is those fabulous tan markings on front & rear legs, chest, butt, cheeks, and eyebrows. In PIEDS, the white hair completely covers the tan markings except for eyebrows or cheeks on a full hooded pied, so kinda defeats the purpose of having a tricolor frogdog. Although the dog is genetically tricolor, if you can’t see the tan markings, what is the point ??

Sarin will be able to produce fawn, chocolate fawn, cream, black & tan or chocolate & tan. She will not be able to produce BLUE or PIED offspring.

Regardless, the fact is that a good dog has NO COLOR, and Sarin is a stunning combination of her sire and dam, and I am so excited to watch this baby girl grow up and reach her full potential.
