Fawn Color Dog Breeds That You Will Love

Fawn Color Dog Breeds That You Will Love

Canine coats come in many different beautiful colors. From pitch black to snow white and a beautiful pallet in between. But there is one color pallet that definitely stands out — Fawn color dog breeds.

What is fawn?

Fawn is a light brown color, that can range anywhere from a soft tan to a light reddish color. Some people also call fawn blond or cream.

As you can tell, there are many different types of fawn color dog coats. We can find them in numerous breeds. It’s also possible for fawn color dog breeds to have a black face mask around their muzzle.

You might have also heard about a dog being “blue fawn”. Blue fawn doesn’t fall into the category of fawn color dog breeds, and referees more to a light or washed out grey color of dog coats.

There are many different dog breeds that can call themselves fawn colors, and we will name some of our favorite ones.

Chow Chow

Chow Chows are gentle giants with fawn colored coats.

The Chow Chow is one of the oldest breeds in the world! Chow Chows are pretty big dogs, their average height is between 17 and 20 inches tall, while the weight is between 45 and 70 pounds!

When it comes to their coat Chows can have two types of coat, smooth and rough coat.

One of the Chow’s most notable features is his blue-black tongue

Firstly, we have the smooth coat which is dense, hard, and smooth without long hair on the dog’s legs, tail, or ears.

Secondly, we have the rough coat which is dense, thick, and more abundant, comprised of an outercoat and undercoat. The undercoat is woolly, soft, and thick.

They are best known for their blue-black tongue!


Pugs are incredibly popular canines, so you’re probably already aware that they come in two colors: fawn and black.

They have a big personality and they love to be around people. Pugs are very goofy, charming and they love fun! Many people love to call them clowns in dog form!

Silly Pug
The Pug’s personality is the best trait about them

Because of their goofy-ness, you might think that they aren’t especially smart, but you’d be mistaken. The truth is, they are very clever and bright dogs, but they don’t always get the credit they deserve for their intelligence.

Health wise Pugs aren’t a generally healthy breed. Sadly, they do tend to have breathing problems very often.

French Bulldog

French bulldogs come in a variety of colors, and fawn is one of them.

This breed is basically a Bulldog but a miniature version! They have a very interesting look to them, with “bat ears” that are their trademark! They are very adaptable and can live with anyone! Singles, couples, families with children, other pets!

French Bulldog
The French bulldog comes in two colors: Fawn and grey.

The Frenchie is very affectionate and loyal. They love to spend a lot of time with their family. If you’re very busy and know that you’ll have to leave your dog alone for long periods of time, maybe the Frenchie isn’t for you.

Frenchies tend to be a bit mischievous, so they need an owner who will be consistent, firm, and patient with them.


Cockapoo is a small dog with a big, goofy personality. That’s the best way to describe Cockapoo puppies. The Cockapoo is not a true breed, but they are probably the first designer dog ever developed. They’ve been around since 1960, and not just a couple of years back.

The Cockapoo is a mix between the Cocker Spaniel and the Poodle. This hybrid is completely people-oriented and the best part about them is that they are very intelligent and unbelievably easy to train!

The Cockapoo is a very happy, joyous and loving dog!

Generally speaking they get along great with anyone, even strangers! They simply have so much happiness and love in them that they desperately want to share it with others!


Chihuahua is an ancient dog breed. Techichi, an older, bigger ancestor of Chihuahuas is first mentioned in Mexico at the time when that region was under Toltecs’ rule.

A typical Chihuahua is bold, alert, and wary with strangers. These traits make Chihuahuas great watchdogs. On the other hand, Chihuahuas are sensitive and they enjoy companions and affection.

Look at that cute face

As it’s the case with all dog breeds, Chihuahuas also need early socialization and exposure to other dogs, people, sounds, and other animals.
