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.

Our new baby Zoey is amazing! She is the sweetest puppy(Maltese)! Maia is great! She took so much extra time providing photos as well as making sure my baby had a good start to her socialization requirements. And she took so much time teaching us how to care for our new baby. Thank you again Maia! I think you know how much I appreciate all you've done!
