The French Bulldog is an affectionate and clownish companion. Despite the general bulldog reputation, this breed is quite easygoing and usually tolerates strangers well. It requires lots of attention and excels at hunting mice. When choosing a French Bulldog, look out for eye and respiratory problems.
Common Name(s) French Bulldog, Frenchie, Frogdog, Bouledogue Francais
Breed Type The French Bulldog is a non-sporting breed. Smaller than the English Bulldog, the Frenchie was bred to be a pet, not a fighter. This dog is best suited to cool or moderate climates.
Background The French Bulldog actually originated in England in the mid 1800s. It was bred as a miniature version of the English Bulldog, then crossed with the French Terrier. Popular hybrids of the breed are the Frengle (French Bulldog and Beagle Mix) and the Free-Lance (French and English Bulldog mix).
Description French Bulldogs are solid dogs with rounded heads, large ears, and pug noses. Acceptable colors according to breed standards include white, fawn, brindle, and white with fawn or brindle markings. These dogs can, however, be found in several other colors. Height is usually around 12 inches. Official weight classes are 19-22 pounds and 22-28 pounds.
Care and Feeding The best diet for a French Bulldog includes beef, wheat, oats and beet pulp. These dogs often become overweight, so it is important not to overfeed them. This breed is very easy to groom, with only occasional brushing required. Regular checkups are especially important for this breed. Vaccinations should be administered as follows:
The French Bulldog sheds an average amount. Regular vacuuming is important if this breed is to stay indoors.
Housing Your Dog French Bulldogs can live indoors or out as long as they are not exposed to extreme temperatures. They make good apartment dogs, and do not require a yard.
Social Behaviors The Frenchie has a great need for companionship, and tends to develop a close bond with one person. Still, it tends to get along with others, including strangers. Most get along with other pets, including dogs, but some males may display aggression. The breed does best with older children.
Handling and Training The French Bulldog is a bit stubborn, but can be trained with firmness and consistency. Some are slow to housebreak.
Activities French Bulldogs need daily walks and play sessions. It is important not to push them too hard in hot weather, because they may become overheated.
Breeding/Reproduction Hereditary diseases and conditions that are often found in this breed include Von Willebrand's disease, thyroid disease, soft or cleft palate, back and spinal disorders, and eye problems. Bloodlines should be checked for these and other problems when selecting a mate. Artificial insemination is often required for breeding, and Cesarean sections are often necessary during delivery, because the puppies have large heads.
Common Health Problems Thyroid disease is a common problem with French Bulldogs, and may be responsible for many other aliments of the breed. Your vet can determine the best treatment.
Availability French Bulldogs are reasonably easy to find. Prices usually range from $1,000 to $2,000.
