The French Bulldog should have the appearance of an active, muscular dog, of heavy bone, smooth coat, compactly built, and of medium or small structure. These dogs weighed around 16–25 pounds (7.3–11.3 kg), although classes were also available at dog shows for those that weighed under 12 pounds (5.4 kg).

History

The origin of the modern French Bulldog breed descends directly from the dogs of the Molossians, an ancient Greek tribe. The dogs were spread throughout the ancient world by Phoenician traders. British Molossian dogs were developed into the Mastiff. A sub-family of the Mastiff were the Bullenbeisser, a type of dog used for bull-baiting. The small Bulldog type gradually became thought of as a breed, and received a name, the Bouledogue Francais. This Francization of the English name is also a contraction of the words "boule" (ball) and "dogue" (mastiff or molosser). The dogs were highly fashionable and were sought after by society ladies and Parisian prostitutes alike, as well as creatives such as artists, writers and fashion designers.

Temperament

French Bulldogs are loyal, loving, very sweet, and make excellent companions. The French Bulldog rarely barks and if he does it is to draw attention, to point out that he needs something or just because he is not happy. This breed is patient and affectionate with its owners, especially with children, who are especially protected by the females. French Bulldogs can easily live with other breeds when the proper introductions are done. The French Bulldog, like many other companion dog breeds, requires close contact with humans. They have fairly minimal exercise needs, but do require at least daily walks. A flat-faced breed, French Bulldogs cannot live outdoors. Their bulk and their compromised breathing system makes it impossible for them to regulate their temperature efficiently. In addition, they are top heavy and therefore have difficulty in swimming.

Advice

French Bulldogs are wonderful companions and make great pets for any household. However, owning a French Bulldog is not for the faint of heart. Before taking the plunge, it is important to understand the unique needs of this breed. First and foremost, French Bulldogs require a great deal of attention. They are very social and thrive on human interaction. If left alone for long periods of time, they can become anxious and destructive. It is important to make sure you have the time and energy to devote to your Frenchie. Second, French Bulldogs need plenty of exercise. Though they are small, they are surprisingly active. A daily walk or play session is essential. Without adequate exercise, your Frenchie may become overweight or develop behavior issues. Finally, French Bulldogs require regular grooming. This breed is prone to skin infections and needs to be brushed and bathed regularly. Additionally, regular nail trims and ear cleanings are necessary to keep your Frenchie healthy and looking its best. If you are willing to make the commitment to giving your French Bulldog the attention, exercise, and grooming it needs, you can enjoy many years of companionship and love with this loyal and endearing breed.
