Some people think of beige as a bit of a mundane or boring color. But not when it comes to our pups. Dogs come in a variety of wonderful colors from jet black to pale white – and beige is one of our favorites.
So, if you’re looking to adopt a light-colored pup into your family look no further. We’ve put together this list of beautiful beige dogs for you to choose from!
What to think about before adopting
But one thing you should always think about is that temperament is much more important than what your dog looks like. You need to make sure you have the experience to deal with a difficult breed and the lifestyle to keep up with their exercise demands.
Always do your research to make sure a dog is a good match for your family.
10 amazing beige dogs
If you’ve checked up on the temperament of a dog and researched the breeder, there’s no problem in preferring a particular color. Beige-colored dogs come in all shapes and sizes and they have different temperaments and energy needs, so there really is a breed for every family!
These adorable, goofy, and intelligent dogs are recognized in three different colors: black, chocolate, and yellow. The yellow itself can range from a deep reddish color to a very pale yellow (and also beige in between)!
Labs are known for being wonderful family dogs. They’re relatively easy to train, happy to please, and are great with children.
They love lots of attention and play sessions are a must if you’re thinking of adopting a Labrador Retriever. They have high energy levels and need regular daily walks. They’re also big water lovers and enjoy running into water after anything!
They can be prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, so make sure your breeder provides you with all the necessary documentation.
Frenchies come in a number of different colors, two of which are cream and fawn – which can look distinctly beige! These cute little dogs are a really popular choice for those living in cities as they’re so adaptable. They’re alert, playful, and love spending time with their human companions.
They don’t require a huge amount of exercise (which is another reason why they’re popular amongst city dwellers) and can be quite happy entertaining themselves.
You should, however, take them out for short walks to keep them engaged and for them to socialize around other dogs. Although not particularly vocal, French Bulldogs can be a little standoffish at first around dogs they don’t know.
Pomeranians come in a whopping 24 different colors! These little beige dogs are easily recognizable thanks to their incredibly fluffy coat (that hides just how tiny their 7-pound body is) and their distinctly foxy face.
As you can imagine from looking at their coat, Pomeranians require a good amount of grooming and brushing – but it’s certainly worth it!
Poms are quite happy with just a short walk a day and some indoor play time. As with Frenchies, it’s really important you socialize Pomeranians well.
If socialized from an early age, Poms can get on well with children and other dogs. If not, they can be aloof and even a little aggressive.
Pitbulls are maybe one of the most misunderstood dog breeds in the world.
Originally bred to fight bulls and for other blood sports, these dogs still have a name of being aggressive and violent (and unethical breeding hasn’t helped).
If however, you get your Pitbull from a responsible breeder who actually cares about the future of these pups, they can be amazing and affectionate family dogs.
Pitbulls come in many different colors and patterns. They have a short coat that doesn’t require much grooming and they’re happy to please their owners when it comes to training. Socialization is key for this breed but with it, they can get on with other pups and can be nannies to kids!
They’re skinny, strong, and perfectly proportioned – and usually have long hair on their floppy ears which makes them look even more adorable!
Salukis are very fast and love to chase after anything (so it’s recommended to keep them on a leash when you’re out and about).
These dogs are very intelligent but can be a little self-willed, so training them can be a bit challenging. For many, Salukis may come across as aloof at times and they can definitely be independent. When they’re in the mood, however, they’ll be loving and happy to play with you!
This is another small beige dog but one with a big and important heritage.
Pekingese were first bred as loyal dogs for the emperors of China and their distinctive look certainly makes them very regal. These cream and fawn-colored pups have long hair and a relatively stocky body. Their coat is longest around their neck and shoulders giving them their iconic lion-like mane.
Pekingese are seriously affectionate dogs and are very loyal. They love spending all their time around their owners and being the center of attention. They’re alert and, despite their size, make great watchdogs.
Because they’re used to wandering around the great palaces of China, they can be a little independent and aloof with strangers.
From a small beige dog to a very big beige dog! These enormous pups were first bred to guard livestock in mountains, and whilst they’re still quite a fierce protector, they’re also happy chilling at home or snoozing on the couch.
These very muscular dogs can have an apricot and fawn coat with a black mask, which makes them look very beige!
Even though they’re relatively short-haired, they can shed quite a lot so you’ll want to brush them regularly. They also drool – so make sure you have a tissue handy!
Because of their size and independent nature, English Mastiffs are not a good choice for inexperienced owners who would find managing and training them difficult.
One of the most popular colors for these very big dogs is fawn which can be fairly light and almost a beige color. Great Danes are very affectionate dogs who love to spend time with their family. They’re also very loyal.
These pups don’t need a huge amount of exercise although daily walks are a must. It’s also really important you take care not to put too much pressure on their joints when they’re growing as this can cause many problems later on in life.
Although affectionate, Great Danes aren’t the best choice for households with small children – purely because of their size. It’s also best that only owners experienced with big breeds adopt these pooches.
Pugs are wonderful little beige dogs that are a really popular choice across America. They’re incredibly versatile pups and can live with children or the elderly, in the country or in a city apartment, and with other dogs or alone! They’re an exceptionally loving breed and need a lot of affection and attention from their owners.
They’re also big lovers of their food and that, combined with their somewhat lazy disposition, can make obesity a big worry. It’s important you take your pug out for daily walks and spend lots of time playing with them indoors.
Remember though, that short-faced dogs find it difficult to breathe in hot weather or after a lot of exercise. So always go for walks in the cooler hours of the day and don’t overdo it with a game of fetch!
Poodles are highly intelligent dogs that are easily recognizable thanks to their curly hair and distinctive haircuts.
They’re very athletic dogs that can have a number of coat colors, including apricot and cream. Poodles are also very energetic dogs and need a lot of daily exercise to burn up some of that energy.
They’ll love long walks, going swimming, and playing with their friends in the dog park. Don’t forget to keep their minds engaged too with plenty of classes and training sessions.
Another great thing about Poodles is that they’re considered to be hypoallergenic dogs, meaning they hardly shed at all. In fact, many shedders (such as the Labrador) have been mixed with Poodles to create new breeds and to make it easier for those that suffer from allergies.
All these 10 beige dogs are amazing breeds that could be the perfect match for your family. It’s important you choose one based on your experience level and whether you can offer them all the exercise and training they need.
