French Bulldog Breed Information:
The adorable French Bulldog "Frenchie" originated in France, however, most researchers believe that they were brought over from England by Normandy lace workers in the mid-1800's. In the farming communities where the lace workers settled, these little Bulldogs became very popular as ratters and loyal companions. As the new, smaller French Bulldogs gained popularity in France, they became favorites of the Parisian "Belles De Nuit" or street walkers. They fancied the Frenchies, as their exotic look attracted much attention from potential customers, giving them a legitimate reason to chat. The docile breed was content to nap for short stretches when brought to hotel rooms, without making a fuss. Breed historians can still sometimes turn up notorious French Postcards bearing images of scantily clad French prostitutes posing with their little "Bouledogues Français." The aura of notoriety that ownership of the little dogs conveyed made them a fashionable way for the well to do classes to show off how daring they could be, and they soon became favorites of the "artistic" set across Europe. It is inarguable that without the influence of dedicated, turn-of-the-century American fanciers, the breed would not be what it is today. The Americans organized the very first French Bulldog Club in the world, and it was they who insisted that the "bat" ears associated with the breed today were correct. Until that time, French Bulldogs were shown with either the "bat" or "rose" ear. The French Bulldog, commonly referred to as the Frenchie is now bred only for companionship. The French Bulldog is a cheerful, fairly low-maintenance companion dog. They are pleasant, affectionate, sweet, and they have a propensity to be very clownish. They are alert, curious, and even-tempered. This breed usually forms a strong bond with one person. While they are generally accepting of strangers and other animals, some males of this breed may be aggressive towards other dogs of the same sex. The French Bulldog needs human companionship and attention. If left ignored or unattended for long periods of time, they can become mischievous and depressed. Although somewhat willful at times, they can be trained relatively easily by a patient owner. The French Bulldog is not a loud or hyper breed, but they are very enthusiastic and persistent. As a flat faced breed, it is essential that owners understand that French Bulldogs cannot live outdoors. Their bulk and compromised breathing system makes it impossible for them to regulate body temperature efficiently, making it easy for them to overheat. In addition, French Bulldogs are top heavy and have a difficult time swimming.
