4 Steps to Register a Non-Standard Color AKC French Bulldog The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

Need to register your non-standard color French Bulldog. Frenchies come in many amazing colors but not all of them are recognized as standard colors with AKC. They are AKC registrable. In the AKC system they have other colors where they choose a color to register your Frenchie. I love doing everythng online, but unfortunately you have to do the snail mail route. Here’s what you need to do. 

  1. First, take 2 pictures of your Frenchie and print them.
    1. One Face View
    2. One Side View
  2. Then write your Frenchies registered name and AKC number on the back of each picture. AKC number can be found in the upper right hand corner of the application. 
  3. Next, complete the AKC paper application and in the lower left corner where you select what color write the color of your Frenchie.
  4. Finally, mail it in!

The AKC color specialist processes all of these special color applications. She chooses the color your Frenchie will be registered under. For example, if you have a lilac Frenchie he will most likely be registered as blue. 

It’s a super easy process. Don’t forget if your microchip is an AKC microchip to register it now. Take advantage of their 30 day free pet insurance as well. 

If you have further questions, you can email them at colors@akc.org
