Dog Breeds With Blue Eyes

Siberian Husky

One of the first dog breeds to come to mind when you think of blue eyes may be the Siberian husky. These stunning dogs commonly have iconic, icy-blue eyes that mirror the tundra of their native land. They can also have brown eyes or a heterochromatic combination of both.

Australian Shepherd

Australian shepherds that have merle coloring have a higher likelihood of getting impressive light blue eyes. These dogs tend to have a higher chance of getting a mix of both blue and brown eyes.

The Weimaraner is known for its sleek, silver-gray coat and loving, active personality. Their kind eyes can be amber or blue, a perfect complement to the breed's iconic silver-gray coat.


Border Collie

These dogs are considered one of the most intelligent breeds with a thoughtful, intense gaze. The border collie’s eyes can be varying shades of brown, gold, or blue.


Blue eyes may not be desirable in show dachshunds, but they are still a beautiful trait. Doxies with a merle coat will most often have blue-eye variations, including full blue, one blue and one brown, or even both colors in one eye.

Cardigan Welsh Corgi

These small yet strong dogs are known for their unique features, such as short legs, long bodies, and large, upright ears. To add to their unique looks, the Cardigan Welsh corgi can also have striking blue eyes.

Great Dane

These gentle giants turn heads with their size alone, but a Great Dane with beautiful blue eyes is an eye-catcher. Most Great Dane puppies are born with blue eyes that change to brown as they mature.

Catahoula Leopard Dog

These dogs are known as leopard dogs for their spotted coats, which can come in a wide array of colors, including blue, red, gray, black, cream, or chocolate. Their eyes can also come in blue, amber, green, brown, or a combination.

Alaskan Klee Kai

The Alaskan klee kai looks a lot like a miniature husky, although, unlike its larger relative, it was bred for companionship and not work.

Pit Bull

The pit bull is another dog often born with blue eyes that change color as they mature. However, blue-eyed mature pit bulls do exist, often accompanying blue-, gray-, or brindle-coated pits.
