forever grateful that the 1912 FBDCA ban on these marvelous colors that existed in our breed from its inception, did not stop EVOLUTION’s natural selection to protect and preserve the coat color DNA that is responsible for “atat” (tricolor), “cocoa” (chocolate), and “dd” (blue) in the French Bulldog.

‘Thrash’ is a Bullistik 3rd generation tri-color (black & tan, white markings)
This amazing French Bulldog is everything I could ask for in any stud dog, but even more accomplished & remarkable because he is BLACK & TAN, not an acceptable color according to FBDCA breed standard, BUT, the epitome of what a French Bulldog was designed to be, nonetheless!
per the breed standard: The French Bulldog has the appearance of an active, intelligent, muscular dog of heavy bone, smooth coat, compactly built, and of medium or small structure. Expression alert, curious, and interested.
Head large and square. Eyes dark in color, wide apart, set low down in the skull, as far from the ears as possible, round in form, of moderate size, neither sunken nor bulging.
Ears Known as the bat ear, broad at the base, elongated, with round top, set high on the head but not too close together, and carried erect with the orifice to the front.
The neck is thick and well arched with loose skin at the throat. The back is a roach back with a slight fall close behind the shoulders; strong and short, broad at the shoulders and narrowing at the loins. The body is short and well rounded. The chest is broad, deep, and full; well ribbed with the belly tucked up. The tail is either straight or screwed (but not curly), short, hung low, thick root and fine tip; carried low in repose.
Forelegs are short, stout, straight, muscular and set wide apart. Dewclaws may be removed. Feet are moderate in size, compact and firmly set. Toes compact, well split up, with high knuckles and short stubby nails.
Hind legs are strong and muscular, longer than the forelegs, so as to elevate the loins above the shoulders.
Hocks well let down. Feet are moderate in size, compact and firmly set. Toes compact, well split up, with high knuckles and short stubby nails; hind feet slightly longer than forefeet.
This fabulous boy has all the right components with a temperament that is every dog owner’s dream: outgoing, sweet & playful, with just the right amount of bossy!
We are more than excited with Thrash !!
