(Based on breed recognition. See store for details on this particular puppy.)
19th century England is when breeders developed a lap version of the English Bulldog, resulting in what they called a Toy Bulldog. With the Industrial Revolution enticing people to France, they took along their Toy Bulldogs and soon the breed became known as the French Bulldog.
Small, 12” at the shoulders, weighing anywhere from 22-28 pounds. Their body is solid, muscular and sturdy, bat-like erect ears, an under bite, with a short coat comes in colors of white, fawn, brindle, brindle with white, or fawn with white, and sometimes a corkscrew tail.
The French Bulldog has a life expectancy of 10-12 years and are prone to bloat, respiratory issues, joint diseases, spinal disorders, eye problems, and heart defects. This breed is also prone to heat stroke, cannot tolerate hot weather and must live in an air conditioned home.
The French Bulldog is playful, clownish, curious, good-natured, and a natural lap-warmer. They are also impish, intelligent, and independent! They love their family, are excellent with children, and have been known to show possessiveness of family members. Because they are independent thinkers they can sometimes be a challenge to train and do best when motivational positive techniques are used. They do require a confident and consistent person in charge who uses only humane leadership guidance. They are fun to live with and quiet – except for their snoring!
Requires a daily walk with off leash playing to keep them exercised. Loves outdoor exercise, but get your veterinarian’s permission before exercising your French Bulldog in hot weather.
