French Bulldog Dog Breed

French Bulldog Dog Breed

The French Bulldog has a compact, muscular body with bat-like ears and a straight or screwed tail. He is a happy, affectionate and devoted dog who loves being around people and has a keen, clownish sense of humor. This breed gets along well with children, able to tolerate other dogs and even enjoy the company of cats. He is initially reserved with strangers but warms up to them quickly. He is alert, intelligent, and easy to train. He is perhaps the healthiest of all the Bulldogs and does not suffer from the over-developments of nasal difficulties of the Boston Terrier and the English Bulldog. Though mildly stubborn, he responds well to patient and consistent training techniques, although spoiling may increase his stubborn nature. He can be difficult to housebreak. He is a relatively clean dog that can get by with minimal exercise.

Size: The French Bulldog stands 10-12in at the shoulder and weighs between 18 and 28lb.

Health care: This breed may suffer from respiratory problems. Extra care must be taken in order to protect his protruding eyes. He does not cope well with extremes in temperature and may wheeze and snore.

History and origin: The French Bulldog was developed in England and France during the 19th century. However, it is unclear whether he derives from small English bulldogs taken to France by Nottingham lace workers or from crossings with dogs imported to France from Spain. In any event, this lovable breed is obviously the descendant of small Bulldogs and has always been primarily a companion dog. By the beginning of this century, he has been a favorite in both United States and Britain.

Feeding: Recommended feeding for the French Bulldog would be 1 1 cans (13.3oz size) of high-quality meat product with biscuit added in equal amount or 3 cupfuls of a complete dry food.

Exercise: An apartment is adequate for this breed. He needs minimal exercise consisting of short, regular walks once or twice per day. Do not overexert this dog, especially in warm weather.

Grooming: The French Bulldog has a short, smooth shedding coat that requires daily brushing and rub down with a silk handkerchief.
