French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is part of a group known as Companion Dog Breeds.

The French Bulldog breed is a sturdy, compact little dog with a powerful muscular body and a short easy-care coat to accompany his easy-going personality.

They are said to be a direct descendent of the British Toy Bulldog taken to France in the 19th Century, and crossed with local Parisian ratters.

The “Frenchie” characteristic is they are always ready for fun and thrive on close contact with their human family, this is a dog who enjoys lavishing love on his human companions

Whilst the French Bulldog Breed loves to play, they are known for their quiet attentiveness and enjoy spending time relaxing on the sofa.

The "Frenchie"

The top Social French Bulldog is “Manny the Frenchie” with over 3m followers.  

Manny is owned by Chicago based Amber Chavez and Jon Huang and was named after the Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao

Manny has eclipsed several of Chicago’s human celebrities while barely lifting a paw.

The philanthropic French bulldog has raised more than $200,000 for charities

The French Bulldog character is they generally get along well with everyone, including children. They can, however, be territorial and possessive of their people, especially in the presence of other dogs.  Socialisation is a must for  ‘Frenchies’, but with their easy going nature this is an enjoyable task.

Prominent French Bulldog website, listed their attributes as:

  • Intelligent
  • Well-mannered
  • Stubborn (at times but rarely)
  • Affectionate
  • Sociable
  • Patient
  • Lively

Colours: White, Fawn, Brindle, Tan, Brindle & White

Shedding: Yes

*Health: The French Bulldog is known to be prone to certain health problems. Here’s a brief outline of the most common.

As a small, flat-faced dog French Bulldogs are prone to some conditions tracking back to their face shape. One is called brachycephalic airway syndrome. Dogs whose facial bones and tissues are compressed can have obstructed breathing. because they may have an elongated soft palate, laryngeal collapse, narrowed nasal cavities or related problems. Dogs with these problems are said to have brachycephalic airway syndrome. Even if you can’t see their structural defects, you can tell they exist by listening to the dog’s laboured breathing after minimal exercise. Dogs with brachycephalic syndrome cannot tolerate excessive heat or exercise. In some cases, surgery may be needed to improve airflow and breathing.

In addition, Frenchies can suffer from spinal malformations and a spinal condition called intervertebral disc disease. Reproductive problems are the norm, not the exception. They may also develop eye problems, such as cataracts, and intestinal malabsorption disorders.

Not all of these conditions are detectable in a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict whether an animal will be free of these maladies, which is why you must find a reputable breeder who is committed to breeding the healthiest animals possible.  They should be able to produce independent certification that the parents of the dog (and grandparents, etc.) have been screened for common defects and deemed healthy for breeding.
