Five Fascinating Facts about French Bulldogs
There’s no doubt about it – French Bulldogs are simply fascinating to look at and have in your home!
Our French Bulldog puppies for sale are no exception! They tend to draw attention to them, no matter where they are and we know exactly why. Read on to learn some fascinating facts about our lovely French Bulldog puppies for sale.
French Bulldogs the Favorite
They are an all American favorite! Last year, the American Kennel Club reported approximately 7,000 new registrations for French Bulldog puppies for sale, which is a considerate hike. It was 49 percent from the previous year, making it more than a 1,000 percent increase from 10 years ago. Going back even further, French Bulldogs were in the top 5 most popular dog breeds between 1909 – 1914.
French Bulldogs Can Be High Maintenance
Yep, we said it. Frenchies can be downright high maintenance. We don’t mean that they will demand royal treatment (though they receive it), we’re talking specifically about their health. These beauties unfortunately can suffer from medical issues like eye problems, knee pain, teeth issues, and hip dysplasia. They are also prone to food allergies which sometimes gives them gas…you’ve been forewarned!
Beautiful Big Old Bulging Eyes and Bat Ears
Let’s face it. Either you love them or you hate them and most are the former! Some people say that, though French Bulldog puppies for sale are so popular, it’s only because they are so ugly they are cute! Whatever the case, we’re here for them, because these charming canine cuties have comical appearances that we just love. From their big, bulging eyes to their flat faces and bat ears, they steal our hearts time and time again. Originally Frenchies had both “bat” (upright, rounded ears that we most commonly see) and “tulip” ears (folded over). American breeders insisted that “bat” ears would be the breed standard and so it was!
Low Grooming Maintenance
’Tis true that our French Bulldog puppies for sale have sleek and short hair, making them easy to care for, but these lovelies tend to shed. Give them daily brushing and they’ll be fine!
