Do you want a dog as:

  • A companion
  • A dog to let you know when they hear a strange noise
  • A pal for the children

A French Bulldog is all that rolled into one. He is gay, fearless, a clown and a devoted friend. If you require a dog just to live quietly in the yard and sleep on the door step, THIS BREED IS NOT FOR YOU.FRENCH BULLDOGS require lots of company, plenty of exercise and preferably some relaxing time. In return your Frenchie will give you undivided loyalty. They can be good with children, when playing inside the home and not outside in the heat. Because of that short face, they can not rip and run 90 miles an hour and no dog should be expected to run in the heat!

History Of The French Bulldog:

In the latter part of the 19th century, the lacemakers of Nottingham, England, began selectively breeding a smaller Bulldog as a lap pet. Displaced by the Industrial Revolution, many of the lacemakers crossed the English Channel, taking their small bulldogs made their way to Paris, where well-to-do Americans on the Grand Tour of Europe saw them and began bringing them to the US. In 1897, the French Bull Dog Club of America was formed, the first club in the world dedicated exclusively to the welfare of this wonderful breed.

Country/Date of Origin: France/1800s

The history of the Gallic Bulldog is entwined with that of the English Bulldog. There is considerable debate about whether the dog was a miniature version of the Englishman and was shipped off to France as an undesirable or was developed on the Continent and later brought to England. At any rate, the Frenchie is without doubt a miniature version of its stouter Anglo Saxon cousin. There are two rather significant differences beyond the obvious size one. The Frenchie’s wide set bat ears are unique to it and its skull is flat between the ears and domed as it comes down toward the nose. In the larger Bulldog the ears are held in the tightly curled rose position and the skull must show no signs of a bulging dome. The Frenchie was traditionally a woman’s pet. It was shown in the United States in 1898 in the ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, the first time a dog show had been held in anyplace so grand. It caused quite a sensation.
