Are brown dogs with blue eyes healthy?
For some pups, it’s totally normal and healthy for them to have a brown coat and pale eyes.
However, it’s always important to do your research and ensure that dogs are being ethically bred and not specially bred for eye color. It’s also important that you check whether your pup has the merle gene which can affect eye color.
Double merles, in particular, can suffer from eye and ear problems which can even lead to blindness.
So, even if you have your heart set on a particular dog breed it’s essential you do your checks first to make sure they’re a happy and healthy puppy.
5 brown dogs with blue eyes
Here are 5 of our favorite brown pups with incredible eyes.
Dachshunds are seriously cute little dogs that come in a number of different coat colors.
They can be chocolate; chocolate and cream; chocolate and tan; and even wild boar. Dachshunds usually have brown, light brown, or amber eyes but they can also have blue eyes. If, however, you want to enter your pup into a show, blue eyes have been labeled undesirable and they therefore won’t be able to take part.
Dachshunds are full of personality for such little dogs. They’re alert, fun-loving, and smart dogs that need consistent training if they’re not to become overly confident.
They’re also known for having a big-dog bark so it’s best to deal with that from puppyhood if it’s not to become too much of a problem.
These long-bodied doggos love adventure and are happy to partake in activities. It’s important, however, that they don’t jump too high or swim too much as they can be prone to back problems.
Catahoula Leopard Dog
Catahoula Leopard Dogs come in a number of different coat and eye colors and one of the most striking is chocolate with blue eyes. They can have different eye colors or particolored eyes too.
These medium-large dogs are athletic, elegant, and surprisingly strong. They’re a high-energy breed so need lots of exciting exercise to use up some of that energy as well as lots of mental stimulation to keep them engaged. They do best with a large yard to roam and run around it.
Catahoula Leopard Dogs need a confident owner who can manage their independent and often territorial nature. If not trained and socialized from a young age, these pups may become dominant and hard to handle.
Their beautiful and short coats require minimal grooming. The occasional brush will help to remove any dirt and you can bathe them occasionally too.
When we think of dogs with blue eyes, many of us think of Huskies. These snowy dogs come in a number of different colors and one of them is brown and white. Red and white dogs also appear to have a brown/reddish coat color. They can have bright blue eyes, particolored eyes, or eyes of different colors.
Huskies are active dogs that need lots of exercise a day. After all, they were originally bred to haul heavy loads long distances over snow and ice. You also need to ensure you keep them mentally engaged with canine classes, interactive training sessions, and lots of toys. Bored Huskies can become very mischievous!
This breed likes to be part of a pack and gets on well with children and other dogs. Like all pups, they need plenty of socialization from an early age if they’re not to become too aloof and independent.
These enormous dogs can weigh up to 150 pounds, so it’s no wonder they’ve been used for thousands of years as excellent guard dogs. As the protectors of choice in Ancient Rome, these wrinkly dogs are strong, confident, and aloof around people they don’t know. They are, however, calm and relaxed around those that they love.
Not only are these pups an excellent choice if you want to protect your home and family but they’re also very beautiful. The American Kennel Club recognizes 4 coat colors for these giants including mahogany and tawny (a very pale gray/brown).
Whilst it’s possible for these brown dogs to have blue eyes, they’re considered a fault by the AKC so you need to remember that if you’re considering entering your doggo into a competition.
Regardless of coat color, Neapolitan Mastiffs have short hair so will only need the occasional bath. You should, however, regularly check the folds of skin to ensure they’re dry, and clean their eyes and ears.
Pitbulls come in a huge variety of coat colors. These include brown brindle, fawn, brown, and liver. It’s also possible for these popular dogs to have blue eyes, different colored eyes, and particolored eyes. Pitbulls are beautiful dogs but a Pitbull with blue eyes is particularly striking!
These muscular dogs were first bred as bull bait in the fighting rings. When bull baiting became illegal this breed was a favorite for dog fighting and, unfortunately, these dogs are still used in some underground dog fights.
It’s important you check your breeder regardless of the dog you’re adopting, but it’s especially important with dogs associated with a ‘fighting’ past. You want a doggo that’s been well-bred by a breeder who cares about breeding out aggression.
Despite their somewhat problematic name, Pitbulls are actually very sweet dogs that get on really well with children and love to be part of a family. It’s important they’re well-socialized when they’re young and diverse training is a must for this breed. They love to be challenged and are very bright so canine classes or sports might be a good idea.
These are just 5 beautiful brown dogs with blue eyes that would make wonderful pets for the right family. Can you think of any other breeds you’d add to the list?
