Blue French Bulldog Puppies for Sale at Euro Puppy!

November 30, 2007 by ann

Have you also been desperately searching for Blue French Bulldog Puppies for sale? If so, you have come to the right place.... Euro Puppy has it!


Some call them French Bulldogs. Some call them Bouledogue Français. Whatever name you know them as, their charm is undeniable. As with all things rare, be that a white elephant or a red diamond, blue Frenchies are also in high demand. Why blue? Well apart from the usual fawn, brindle, pied color that they usually come in, an exceptional hue can also be found – if somewhat rarely- in Frenchies. These rare-colored French Bulldogs are called “Blue French Bulldogs”. There are 3 types that occur in the blue hue: Blue, or Blue Brindle markings on a dog have a "grey" hue, and the base coat color is a solid blue-grey. It has been debated whether or not this color is also what the standards refer to as 'mouse'. A Blue Pied French Bulldog is a result of the ‘d’ or dilute gene. In this form, the dilute factor has caused the black hairs to become blue. Pigment on the nose and the pads of the feet are also a grayish blue in color, and eyes are often blue or yellowish gold. Again, this color has also been referred to as mouse. Last but not least, Blue-Fawn is a variation of blue, that is seen most clearly in the masking points on the face. Typically they have green/gray eyes. It is said that they are usually produced by a fawn or red fawn parent.

Bonnie and Hanson: Boxers


Developed in Germany, the Boxer is a breed of stocky, medium-sized, short-haired dog. The coat is smooth and fawn or brindled, with or without white markings. They have very strong jaws and a powerful bite. The Boxer was bred from the Bulldog and the now extinct breed called: Bullenbeisser. Based on 2006 American Kennel Club statistics, Boxers are the seventh most popular breed of dog in the United States—a position they have held since 2002. Boxers are renowned from olden times for their great love and faithfulness to their masters and household. Boxers are harmless in the family, but distrustful of strangers. They are bright and friendly of temperament at play, but brave and determined when aroused. Boxers’ intelligence and willing tractability, modesty and cleanliness make them a highly desirable family dog and cheerful companion. A boxer is the soul of honesty and loyalty, and is never false in old age. There are many theories pertaining to the origin of the breed’s name. It is supposedly derived from the breed's tendency to begin a fight by standing on its hind legs and "boxing" with its front paws. It could also have gotten its name from the very first known specimens of the breed which was called Lechner's Box.

What is the perfect doghouse for your dog?

November 27, 2007 by ann

A company called House of Hammocks has defined a formula, by which you can calculate how big a dog-house is required for your dog. Dogs require smaller doors than what their total height is and they have to have an opening large enough to accommodate their width. When it comes to measuring the height of the house, all that is needed is to add approximately 1” (2.54cm) to the “A” measurement that can be seen below. This shows the length of the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the chest.
When wanting to buy a doghouse, your first consideration should be the door. It is basically the most important factor. After all, your dog needs to get easily in and out of the house. Thus, the A-B-C method for determining the ideal dog house size has been developed by the House of Hammocks. it is as follows:
The A-B-C Method:

ABC Guide


 There are three measurements that are needed to determine the size of a dog house. They are defined as follows:

A: The distance from the dog’s shoulder to the bottom of his chest.
A: The door opening's height needs to be at least 1” (2.54cm) inch taller than the shoulder to chest measurement. It is also an advantage to try to elevate the house off the ground by half of the “A” measurement.
Thus: If the “A” measurement is 10 inches (25.4 cm), the door height opening needs to be 11 inches (27.94cm) . The house should be elevated off the ground level by 5 inches (12.7cm)....
