French Bulldogs have erect “bat ears” and a charming, playful disposition. The smushy-faced Frenchie is beloved worldwide as a small, non-sporting city dog. It loves companionship and bonds with animals and families. Frenchie puppies make amazing non-barking watchdogs.
French Bulldogs are one of the more popular dog breeds in the United States. Despite their name, they come from England, not France, and have been bred to be companion animals for several hundred years. Frenchies have the characteristic short muzzles of bulldogs but are smaller than their traditional Bulldog counterparts. They are very playful and affectionate in nature and love to be near their people. French Bulldogs, which tend to be no larger than 28 lbs. in adulthood, are adaptable to both small and large spaces and are devoted pets to individuals and families.
The French Bulldog’s affectionate, easy-going temperament, is one of the most appealing features for many owners. Frenchies are very adaptable, so they make great pets for first-time dog owners. They adjust well to other animals, too, and are great with kids. Frenchies are very social and thrive on human interaction, so they shouldn’t be left alone for long periods or experience separation anxiety. Training a French Bulldog isn’t difficult, although some Frenchies are on the stubborn side. Still, most, if not all, French Bulldogs respond well to reward-based training and positive reinforcement. As long as they receive the attention and care they need, French Bulldogs make beautiful, easy companions for all types of people.
