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 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 herding Aussie is brilliant and full of energy and excels in agility competitions.
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.
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 are more common in merle-coated border collies.
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.
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.
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. Dapple-coated harlequin and merle Great Danes keep their baby blues their whole life.
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. Most Catahoulas have merle patterns or leopard-like spots of multiple colorings.
The Alaskan klee kai looks a lot like a miniature husky, although, unlike its larger relative, it was bred for companionship and not work. The klee kai can have icy blue, brown, hazel, or green eyes.
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. The name "pit bull" is a general term for breeds that include the American Staffordshire terrier and the American pit bull terrier.
