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.

Jaclyn Emerick-New York City

I met my now husband, Scott, three years ago, and about a year into our relationship we started the search for our dogter, Chandler. We live in New York City, but weren't getting good vibes from any of the East Coast breeders we communicated with. Scott's parents have a home in Bend, OR, and are huge animal lovers, and his mom, Cathie, jumped at the chance to help us find our perfect breeder. When someone mentioned Maia to her, Cathie immediately called her to learn more. Cathie even went to see her facility. It was comforting to know that Maia was so accessible and straightforward with her potential customers. As soon as we placed a deposit on a litter, Maia sent us a card and a book on how to raise a puppy. She kept us completely informed on Kaya's (Chandler's mom) pregnancy progress and answered our check-in emails almost immediately. When our pup, Chandler, was born, she sent multiple photos and updates on her development and personality. We got videos of her opening her eyes for the first time, her learning how to walk, and her completely buried in the food bowl. Scott's family went to visit Cahndler when she was four weeks old and they Facetimed us and sent videos and photos of our chunky girl. We weren't able to pick Chandler up until she was eight weeks old, but by then, thanks to Maia's updates, we felt like we knew her. Scott and I were first-time pup parents, and we certainly had a TON of questions along the way. I texted, emailed, and called Maia often during the first few months of Chandler's life. Some of my questions, I now realize, were ridiculous! Regardless, Maia responded to all of them with her tips and expertise. We just celebrated Chandler's first birthday, and about a month before that, Chandler walked down the aisle wearing a flower collar during our wedding. We are so in love with our Chandler. She is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly healthy, but even better than that, she has the biggest personality. She's incredibly sweet and quirky and has a huge heart. She makes every person she passes on her walks smile. We've had so many people tell us that there's something different about Chandler, something special. Obviously we're biased, but we firmly believe it. Chan is such a social girl, and we want her to have a sibling soon. We know we'll be going to Maia for that without a doubt. We can't thank Maia enough for bringing Chandler into our lives.
