The skin around their head and shoulders is wrinkled and loose fitting over most of the rest of the body. They can come in color of white, brindle, or fawn, or combinations of these.

History. The French Bulldog, surprisingly enough, was developed in England in the 19th century in Nottingham. It was decided by some lace makers that they would like a smaller version of the English bulldog. This entire class were driven to France by the Industrial Revolution in the 1860s and the dogs were taken with them. These dogs also known as toy Bulldog’s were very popular with the French. They became commonly known as the French Bulldog and have remained so since, even though the English were not necessarily happy that the dog originating there had the title French Bulldog.

Temperament. Their playful, lively, affectionate, and alert with an enthusiastic nature yet they are reasonably quiet and do not yap. They love to play and with their sweet and curious disposition can be very entertaining. The French Bulldog is very good with other dogs and plays well with them. Whilst they are easy going and clever dogs, they do require firm training, without which they may become confused and aggressive. The dog needs to know that you are the master and in charge. If they get the feeling they are in charge, undesirable habits will result. If adequately trained and socialized from a young age these will make a good family pet. However, any children in the house must be considerate to the dog but also above it in the pecking order.
Health issues. This breed lives for 10-12 years and are prone to spinal and joint problems along with eye problems and possible heart defects. It is not unusual for the puppies to have to be delivered by Caesarean section. This breed can have breathing problems if they become overweight so correct feeding is vital, do not overfeed this dog.
Grooming. The French Bulldog sheds at an average rate beyond that regular brushing is available that is required for grooming this breed.
Living conditions. Whilst the French Bulldog does not like extremes of temperature, they are very active indoors and are well suited to live in an apartment. They will be happy enough without a garden, as long as they are well exercised during the day.

In the 1860’s, French dog breeders imported some of these very small Bulldogs from Great Britain and bred them with French Terriers. Streetwalkers in France greatly admired the imports and this led to the name French Bulldog. When the breed was eventually brought back to England for exhibition, the English made a big uproar about the name French Bulldog, since the Bulldog was originally an English Breed and because the Bulldog was a traditional symbol of English culture.

Description: The French Bulldog, also known as the “Frenchie”, is a small, muscular, and compact dog. It stands about 12 at the withers and generally weighs between 18 and 28 pounds. It has heavy bones and is considered to be a dwarf Mastiff. The French Bulldog has a broad, square head, very short muzzle, and large bat ears. Its face is more pleasant and open than that of the English Bulldog and the wrinkling is not as heavy. The lower jaw is undershot and the tail is naturally abbreviated. The usual coat colors of the French Bulldog are brindle, white, brindle and white, and fawn.

History: It is generally considered that the French Bulldog began as a sort of toy Bulldog, a scaled-down version of the English Bulldog. It was kept by lacemakers in England. During the 1860s, these artisans were forced to leave England for France after being deprived of their livelihood by the industrialization of lace making. Their little dogs, of course, went with them to France. As the dogs gained popularity there, they became known as the French Bulldog. At this point, the French Bulldog had either rose ears or bat ears, this issue had not been settled. American devotees are responsible for establishing the bat ear as the breed standard.

Temperament: The French Bulldog is probably one of the most pleasant dogs in existence. It bonds extremely strongly with its family and requires a lot of attention. However, it gives at least as much affection as it gets, so is a joy around the house. The French Bulldog is extremely intelligent and has a true sense of humor. It is kind, tolerant, and loving with children. The French Bulldog has strong protective instincts and considers it an honor to protect those it loves. The Frenchie is a bit of a clown and will entertain the family with its antics. It should be pointed out, though, that the French Bulldog can be very jealous if attention is given to another pet.

Health Issues: As with all dogs, the French Bulldog is heir to several health conditions and congenital diseases. Von Willebrand’s Disease, a type of hemophilia, can be carried by this dog. A Frenchie should be tested before surgery to see if it has this condition. As the French Bulldog has such a flat face, it can suffer from breathing problems such as snoring. It is also intolerant of heat and must be kept cool to prevent heat stroke.

Grooming: The French Bulldog requires only a weekly grooming and plenty of petting to keep its coat in good condition. The facial wrinkles should be wiped regularly to prevent infection. The nails should be kept short and the ear passages clean.

Living Conditions: The French Bulldog is strictly an indoor dog. It cannot stand extreme heat or cold and cannot live outside. More importantly, the French Bulldog needs to be around the people it loves. The Frenchie wants to interact with the family and will suffer if deprived of this. The French Bulldog is happy living in an apartment, and requires on a daily walk to remain fit.
