I have had Weimaraners for years, but my husband decided we needed a small dog in our house, so we rescued a brindle male BT. He was turned in to the rescue group from a puppy mill. I have assumed that he was used as a stud in the puppy mill because of his brindle coat. Is that a safe assumption? I read on this site that the brindle coat is preferred, but how common is it? I have never seen a brindle BT before him. Bottom line, we are totally in love with him and can't imagine life without him. His name is Lamont and we love him more than words can say. He keeps his own with the 4 rescue Weimaraners in the house. He is the perfect fit. I look forward to learning more about the breed. Thanks.

What a beautiful dog! Brindle used to be the only standard for Bostons. Black was unacceptable. Then black became so popular it was added to the standard. Now there are many "colored" bostons but the only standard is Brindle/White and Black/White (except for the Seal which is Black that looks red in the light). Personally, I love the variations in colors but prefer black and white. I suppose that Brindle fell out of popularity because it was so common. You have to respect that color of coat, though, because of it's history and elegance.

Many breeders that show their dogs have "issues" with breeding the different colored Bostons but I say that luckily we live in a free country where every one can pursue their own happiness and if a Cream or Red colored Boston makes you happy then good for you!
