Dog Breed:   FRENCH BULLDOG

View French Bulldog Sculpture

Frenchies are generally very sweet, affectionate dogs that do equally well in the city or the country. They require little exercise, and grooming is minimal. The average lifespan for a frenchie is 10 - 12 years. Females tend to live longer than males. Show dogs are supposed to possess the best traits for their breed, and be as close to the 'standard' as possible.

Although native to France, the French Bulldog has a strong English ancestry. During the middle of the 1800's, many English lacemakers immigrated to France in search of a better living, taking their beloved toy Bulldogs with them. Once in France, the miniature Bulldogs were crossed with other local breeds, until the French Bulldog, with its distinctive "bat" ears, was developed and bred true on its own. Originally called the "Bouldogue Français," the breed gained a strong following, and in 1902, a specialty club was formed and the Frenchie was officially recognized by the Kennel Club. Although it has never been an outrageously popular dog at the shows, its charming personality has earned it many loyal fans around the world. It makes an excellent family companion and enjoys life in the city or suburbs.

Height: 12" (30.5cm)

Weight: In the show ring, the breed is divided into two weight categories: those weighing less than 22 lbs (10 kg) and those weighing between 22 and 28 lbs (10-13 kg).

Coat Type: The short, sleek coat is smooth and comes in the following colors: fawn or brindle, solid white, or white and brindle. Minimal grooming is required.

Temperament: This breed is courageous, loyal, affectionate and smart. They make good family pets and although they don't scare away many intruders, they like to play the role of family guardian.  They are well behaved, adaptable, and comfortable companions with an affectionate nature and even disposition; generally active, alert and playful but not unduly boisterous.

Health Problems: Maintaining the correct weight is important: a heavy abdomen can make breathing difficult.

Special Interest: The French Bulldog has an excellent reputation as an outstanding mouser, as long as its snorting and loud breathing don't give it away. Like its other snub-nosed relatives, the Frenchies snort when they're active and snore when they slumber.
