Like other dogs bred for companionship, they’ll want close interaction with their owner. They’re social pups, so don’t plan on leaving this breed alone for long periods of time or it may develop bad behaviors.

They’re very affectionate with children, calm, and not known to bark often.

Appearance

They have smooth short-hair coats that come in a variety of colors:
  • Fawn

  • Tan
  • Black

  • Combo

French Bulldogs are typically 11 to 12 inches in height and 15 to 28 pounds in weight.

Exercise

Low Activity
The Frenchie is a low energy dog and won’t require lots of exercise.

They will enjoy playing outside and running around inside so make sure you have lots of toys for them to play with.

​​Strenuous physical activity is not recommended for the French Bulldog due to their brachycephalic complex and related difficulties with respiratory functions.

This dog will be fun to have around, and perfect for someone looking for a mellow pup to call their own.

The French Bulldog is a descendant of the ancient Molossian, which gave rise to the Mastiffs and later the Bulldogs. The Frenchie's Bulldog ancestor was originally bred for bull-baiting and then later for blood sport. Once Europe made blood sports illegal, the English Bulldog was reduced in size by being crossed with small Terriers.

The smallest of the English Bulldog, too small for English preferences, became in vogue to both high- and low-brow people. These popular pups soon made their way west to the United States and by 1898, they were accepted as a companion breed by the American Kennel Club.

The Frenchie was considered a social status symbol in both the U.S. and Western Europe. At the turn of the 20th century, some French Bulldogs were selling for as much as $3,000, which is equivalent to $35,000 today!

In the United States, the Frenchie is in the top six most desired dog breeds. This increased popularity and demand for the breed has led to an illegal puppy trade and puppy mills that have less-than-safe practices. Visit our xxx page to learn more about our safe breeding practices!

The French Bulldog is considered easy to maintain as their short hair requires minimal brushing. Once a week brushing is sufficient to keep them well groomed. Excess bathing will strip the dog’s natural oils and dry out their skin, so avoid too frequent bathing and shampooing.

Their face wrinkles should be checked regularly for dirt or debris which can cause infection. Frenchies are also more prone to tooth and mouth disease, so brush their teeth three times a week and get an annual dental cleaning from your veterinarian.

Unfortunately, this playful pup deals with many potential health risks, so the Frenchie is looking for a family that can give them the attention and care they deserve. You’ll no doubt be paid back by their charm!
