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.

Maia and her lovely family drove in the snow to meet me at Belknap Hot Springs. They were friendly and fun, the whole family is a part of the team. In fact she would hardly let me hold little Jax Julanai Kazue because she was SO fond of him.
I interviewed many different breeders and read a book, looked online and spoke to Divine Maltese who helped me with some questions and said I was on the right track by doing my homework about breeders. I talked to around 6 or 7 breeders. I found Maia and she was strict and cared about the welfare of her dogs. She has given me a book with Maia and her passionate love for animals match's my love for animals. Her knowledge and help has helped me be a good Maltese mommy. My 3 Siamese cats are finally coming around, one is his besty so far! I was told not to have Maltese around cats by some breeders lol my cats are more dog like than others.Maia was supportive of me having other pets and said it would be fine.
I made the perfect match, Jax is a smart guy at 9 weeks old already following some commands, getting into his bed and on his blanket. He was the perfect age & we are bonding great. Choose Maia, she is THE BEST and won't let you down, very supportive and kind. A true blessing and new FRIEND.
I waited a LONG time and my prayers were answered. I didn't jump into getting a puppy, I waited and did my homework :)
