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.

We picked up Bubba when we really needed him! We suffered a recent loss our other beloved Maltese but we were so blessed to find Bubba, Maia and her gang. We were very impressed with her "home" and her "family" and feel very confident we got ourselves a perfect PUP! After a well worth it trip to Maia's sweet Eastern Oregon town Bubba has made himself right at home here. We are so happy with our little guy and feel it was meant to be, to have him in our lives now. He is more than we could have ever hoped for and look forward to many long years of companionship. Thank you, Maia and your lovely family for our Bubba, we hope you come to our neck of the woods some time and pay a visit, he and we will look forward to seeing you! D and J
