In the 19th century, lace makers of England began breeding a smaller bulldog as a lap pet. When they sought work in France, they brought their small bulldogs with them. Some of these miniature bulldogs made their way to Paris, where wealthy Americans on the Grand Tour of Europe saw them and began bringing them into the United States.


French Bulldogs are a compact, muscular dog, with a smooth coat, snub nose, and solid bone. Their physical appearance is characterized by "bat ears" that are wide at the base and rounded at the top. Their tails are naturally short, and are either straight or screwed. Their neck is thick with loose skin at the throat. Their forelegs are muscular, short, stout, straight, and set wide apart. Their hind legs are strong and muscular as well, and longer than the forelegs, to elevate the loins above the shoulders.

The American Kennel Club Breed Standard describes the French Bulldog as "an active, intelligent, muscular dog of heavy bone, compactly built, and of medium or small structure. Expression alert, curious, and interested." Under the AKC standards, weight is not to exceed 28 pounds. In general, females range in weight between 16 and 24 pounds, and males between 20 and 28 pounds.

General Care

French Bulldogs don't require an excessive amount of exercise or grooming. An occasional brushing will help keep their coat shiny and an occasional walk will be much appreciated. That is one reason they make such great apartment dogs. Cleaning their ears, trimming their nails, and cleaning of their deep facial folds, will help prevent problems. Choose a high quality dog food, to provide your Frenchie with all the essential nutrients.

Most Frenchies cannot swim, and should never be left unattended around water. In warm climates, air conditioning is a must. Frenchies love rawhide chews, but if given supervision is needed. When the chews soften, they can become lodged in a Frenchies pallet and throat.

Frenchies are not a noisy, barking breed. They are very fond of people and love to act as clowns, seeking all of the attention they can get. They should never be allowed to run free. When outside, a fenced yard or leash is highly recommended.

Health Care

As a short-faced breed, French Bulldogs have some health concerns that you should be aware of. Frenchies have less tolerance to heat, exercise, and stress, compared to the long-nosed breeds. Keep your French Bulldog cool in warm weather (to avoid overheating), warm in cool weather, and avoid strenuous exercise (over exhaustion). If your dog has noisy breathing or spitting up foam, due to overheating or becoming stressed too easily, consult your vet for possible pinched nostrils, or an elongated soft palate.

Find a good veterinarian, preferably one who has worked with other short-faced breeds before. Provide your Frenchie with regular vet visits, routine vaccinations, tests for intestinal parasites, heartworm prevention, and flea and tick control.
