Top 5 Brindle Dog Breeds

Common brindle dog breeds often have coloring patterns on their coats, and sometimes resemble the stripes you find on a tiger. One of the main characteristics of the markings is the irregularity which often can be darker than the base of the dog’s coat.

The brindle appearance most often appears in dogs that have a shorter coat. If you’re thinking about getting a brindle dog, we have listed below the top five brindle dog breeds.

Treeing Tennessee Brindle

This dog breed weighs no more than 23kg (50 lb) and is usually no taller than 61cm (24 in). The appearance of the Treeing Tennessee is deceptive, as the lack of dominance in their stature is made up in behavior. The Treeing Tennessee is capable of hunting and is an excellent companion for their owner.

  1. I have a dog that is supposedly half beagle and half German short haired pointer. She is tri colored but has a brindle pattern on a large brown patch on her back. Is that possible? Can a brindle pattern be mistaken for just mixed coloring or is it a definitive pattern?
