Introduction

Brindle dogs are strikingly gorgeous, with a different type of appearance than any solid or even multi-colored dog. This is because the colors blend together, but at the same time stand out individually. Many of the colors are shades of browns, tans, greys, and even gold, and not all brindles look the same. That is what makes them so unique! There are also many full-bred or mixed breeds of this color, such as Boxers, Bull Terriers, Akitas, and Mastiffs. Brindle coated dogs have different patterns, depending on the genes. Some brindle dogs have more of one color than the others and some have a blended mixture. When you see a dog with this type of coat, it definitely catches your attention!
