French Bulldog Puppies

Get to know the

French Bulldog
 

AKC Meet the Breeds®

Often described as “a clown  in the cloak of a philosopher,” the French Bulldog originated as, and continues  to be used as a companion dog. The breed is small and muscular with heavy bone  structure, a smooth coat, a short face and trademark “bat” ears. Prized for  their affectionate natures and even dispositions, they are generally active and  alert, but not unduly boisterous. Frenchies can be brindle, fawn, white, and  brindle and white.

 

A Look Back

Lacemakers in 19th Century  Nottingham, England  selectively bred the early bulldog for a downsized or “toy” bulldog,   for use as a lap pet. When the  Industrial Revolution displaced some lacemakers to France,  they took the dogs with them, and soon  the “toy” bulldogs became  popular in France,  where wealthy Americans doing the Grand Tour saw and fell in love with them.   In  the late 1800’s these “toy bulldogs” became known as French Bulldogs.

Right Breed for You?

Frenchies are indoor dogs, but  require air conditioning in warm weather. While good at alerting their owners to danger (Look! The UPS Guy is coming!), their main role is that of lap warmer. The Frenchie requires minimal exercise and grooming.

Hi my name is Melanie, and I got my little angel from Maia. I found her (Maia) on the internet . I had already found a breeder that I was going to use, but I thought I would give Maia a call just to make sure I covered all my bases. Boy am I glad that I made that call. She was so kind and understanding (we have an older dog who is sick, we were trying to make up our minds on whether to bring in another dog.) any way we talked for some time, as she was getting a feel for me I too was getting a feel for her. ( We both passed!!) I got a Teddy bear , and boy do we love her. Maia took the time to respond to my emails ( I'm sure I drove her crazy) she sent me pictures and videos. I would watch them over and over. When we picked up our little one she was very professional had all the paper work in order, shots, vet, every thing. I will with no problem recommend her to you are anyone. I still email her with problems(how to stop biting, how much food to feed her, ) and she gets back to me. She told me she would be available for me for the life of my baby, that could be 13 to 16 years, and I believe her. Thank you Maia for my baby, you may hear from me in a few more years for another dog. Melanie
