    Thank you for your response. I understand that he is actually reverse brindle. I was referring to the base coat so to speak. It sometime seems to change from Orange, red and brown. Depending on the sun light. What's really strange is his mother is grey and gather is black. Who'd guess?

    I would call him a red brindle, but that is general dog speak. I have no APBT specialist knowledge. It is a nice warm bright colour.
    @Bulldogs4Life has excellent colour inheritance knowledge, but doesn't post often these days.

    I would say red brindle too from those photos. I would also call it a light brindle (vs dark brindle) as in Boxers dark brindle is reverse and in French Bulldogs light brindle is reverse. So I think it is a lot easier just to say light or dark brindle personally

    My boy is a blue/brindle, when the sun or light hits him he goes orange stripped, hence his name Tigger or Mr.Tiggs as he goes by.

    Unfortunately I don't get on much, but he is brindle with white marks.

    If one parent was blue and the other black, then either one of them could have been carrying brindle.

    Your pup is very nice looking and I love brindles, great looking pup.

    Thanks for the reply. I really thought that was strange for him to have those markings.

    Think about it like this. Brindle is a pattern of black stripes, you can't see black stripes on a black background. So one of his parents was masking the brindle pattern

    He has a cool coat then since it changes when he is expose to the sun. I will have to go for Light Brindle as his color changes from dark to light. :D

    Hello thx for your reply. Yeah I agree with you. He has actually begun to get small blonde patches in some places. This pup is really unique. His personality matches his coat to. Lol
