French Bulldog

Country of Origin: France

The early bulldog was selectively bred for a downsized or "toy" bulldog as a lap pet companion and continues to fulfill this role today.  The "toy" bulldog was to later become known as the French Bulldog in the 1800s as it's popularity increased  in America.

This breed is sweet and easygoing.  They need little exercise and get along well with strangers.  Appreciated for their affectionate nature and even temper, they are usually active and alert, but not overly boisterous.

Physically small and muscular with a heavy bone structure, and smooth coat.  Colors range from brindle, brindle and white, fawn, fawn and white, solid white and a few others.  Their short face and trademark "bat" ears give them a distinguished look.  They need little grooming

Height. 18-20 in.

Weight.  Must weigh 28 pounds or less.

They often need a great deal of attention.  Like Bulldogs, they wheeze, slobber and don't like hot weather.  Frenchies are indoor dogs and need air conditioning in warm weather.
