Brindle is one of the most beautiful markings of all. It’s all about gorgeous stripes and it comes in a variety of colors, either all over or on parts of the body. They can be cream and blue, black and red or many other shades and combinations. We tend to imagine brindle on large bully breeds only, but there are so many types of dogs with this stunning fur.
These sleek, fast beauties come in many shades and patterns, and brindle is definitely one of them. Whether in saddles, points, or all over, gorgeous brindle fur really catches your attention as it zooms by, or stays perfectly still on your couch.
Boxers have loveable, smushable faces and they come in brindle! They look especially regal in their shades of red and gold, at least until they flop over and wiggle around for belly scratches like big lovable goofs.
3. Cardigan Welsh corgi
Not all brindle fur is short. The Cardigan Welsh corgi has longer fur with a variety of patterns, including brindle. They’re actually related to the Dachshund, which can also occasionally be found in brindle.
4. Plott hound
The Plott hound is a lesser-known breed, often brindle all over, and almost always at least somewhat brindle. They’re bred for treeing, which means that they actually chase bears and raccoons up trees. These tough little pups look like tigers and they have a mighty roar, though it’s more like a bay and chop kind of bark.
5. French bulldog
Frenchies are already way cute, so why not throw in some adorable little streaks to make their awkward little butts even more adorable?
Big, beautiful bullmastiffs have a lot of surface area to cover. When all of that fur is brindle, you’re in for a whole lot of stripes to pet.
Some might think that brindle can be an overwhelming pattern, but it can actually be quite subtle on a smaller frame like the whippet. You wear it well, my swift little friend.
8. Great Dane
Great Danes are just divine in brindle. The smoothness of their coats lends the perfect canvas for deep, luxurious shades intermingling on such a large dog.
9. Staffordshire bull terrier
Staffies are such smiley sweethearts. Seeing the brindle on their little noses and cheeks really frames their joyous expressions.
10. Cairn terrier
Toto from The Wizard of Oz wasn’t a brindle, but Cairn terriers do come in various coat colors and patterns, including brindle. They’re another example of a less close-cropped coat in the signature stripes.
11. Bull terrier
Their lovely long noses look even more refined with a touch of brindle. You can’t deny that these charming pups look very good in stripes.
12. Mixed breed
We didn’t mention every breed here, but let’s just say that they’re represented within the mixed breed category. Brindles of mixed or mysterious origins abound, and they’re all incredibly gorgeous in their multicolour coats.
