French Bulldog characteristics
French Bulldogs typically stay around 18-28lbs and are built very much like English bulldogs, just on a smaller scale. They do have one feature that sets them apart though, those funny little ears! Described as “bat-like”, Frenchie ears are some of the cutest in the dog world, but we may be a little partial! The breed originally came from England, but made their way to France with lace makers in the 1800s, where they were bred smaller to be lap dogs and companions.
Frenchies can come in many different colors, the most common being fawn with a black mask, but you can also see black, brindle, red, cream, pied and even merle! They have cute, little screwtails that are not docked, which is usually why they wag their whole backend to show you how happy they are to be near you! Frenchies are also not a very active breed and do very well in smaller environments like an apartment or condo.
It’s not all fun and games, but mostly though!
Because the French Bulldog is a brachycephalic breed, which is a fancy word for “flat faced”, but with breeds like this you have to be careful having them out in extreme weather. Frenchies do not take to high temperatures very well and will overheat quickly. And with their top heavy bodies, Frenchies typically make terrible swimmers, so just make sure you watch them around water. But with so much cuteness and love packed into a little body, we don’t think these things take away from the overall awesomeness of the French Bulldog!
