A Brief Introduction to French Budlldog

A Brief Introduction to French Budlldog

The French Bulldog, also known as Frenchie, is a small breed of domestic dog. Frenchies were the result in the 1800s of a cross between bulldog ancestors imported from England and local ratters in Paris, France.

The French Bulldog should have the appearance of an active, muscular dog, of heavy bone, smooth coat, compactly built, and of medium or small structure.

Acceptable colors under the breed standard are the various shades of brindle, fawn, tan or white with brindle patches (known as “pied”). The most common colors are brindle, then fawn, with pieds being less common than the other colors. 

Their skin should be soft and loose, especially at the head and shoulders, forming wrinkles. Coat moderately fine, brilliant, short and smooth.

The French Bulldog, like many other companion dog breeds, requires close contact with humans. As a result, they should not be left alone for more than a few hours because these dogs experience separation anxiety if they are alone for too long.

They have fairly minimal exercise needs, but do require at least daily short walks. Their calm nature makes them an excellent choice for apartment dwellers, as does their sensible attitude towards barking.

Their bulk and their compromised breathing system makes it impossible for them to regulate their temperature efficiently. The French bulldog has only a single short coat. This means the dog may easily become cold. Also, they will very likely need to have some extra covering inside during the winter in particularly cold areas.

French Bulldogs make excellent companions. The French Bulldog rarely barks, and if he does it is to draw attention, to point out that he needs something (like attention).

This breed is patient and affectionate with its owners, especially with children, who are especially protected by the females. French Bulldogs can easily live with other breeds when the proper introductions are done.
