French Bulldog

 

Don't let the name fool you: French Bulldogs (or “Frenchies” as their fans call them) are originally from England. One of their jobs was to keep industrial laborers, most especially lace-makers, company while they worked. Because this breed can't reproduce naturally and the mothers often need c-sections, French Bulldogs can be expensive. Nonetheless, they make great companions, and their bat ears, snorting, and noisy breathing make them unique and funny furry friends.

This small-sized and medium-energy breed grow to under 28 pounds and lives an average of 9-11 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Non-Sporting group.

BEHAVIOR & TRAINING

WHAT IS A FRENCH BULLDOG'S PERSONALITY LIKE?

Your French Bulldog always wants to keep you company and is a lapdog par excellence. They crave attention, though they're not particularly eager to please. This breed can be playful and affectionate. They are adaptable, very smart, loyal to their chosen people, and laid back.

They make good family dogs but are also a great choice as a single's sidekick.

WHAT IS FRENCH BULLDOG BEHAVIOR LIKE?

This is not a particularly active breed. French Bulldogs don't require much exercise; a walk around the block a few time a day will probably do the trick or plan for romps and games in the backyard.

Don't expect your Frenchie to pull watchdog duty though: they're not especially protective and they don't bark much.

HOW EASY IS IT TO TRAIN A FRENCH BULLDOG?

French Bulldogs are infamously stubborn. You'll need to be patient and consistent while training your pup. They respond well to food and game rewards.

CARE & HEALTH

HOW MUCH DO FRENCH BULLDOGS SHED AND WHAT ARE THEIR GROOMING NEEDS?

A French Bulldog's fine single coat is short and smooth. They don't require much grooming, but it's important to keep those face wrinkles dry to prevent infections. They are moderate, seasonal shedders.

WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS DO FRENCH BULLDOGS HAVE?

French Bulldogs have short, smooshed faces so often experience overheating and difficulty breathing. They are also prone to eye irritations, thyroid conditions, and spinal diseases and injuries.

This breed also tends toward pudginess, so be mindful about meals and snacks.
