Originally bred in England as a means to create a smaller, companion version of the Bulldog, the breed later became popular in France. Once referred to as the Toy Bulldog, the name French Bulldog stuck even after returning to England and later the U.S. A playful companion dog, the breed is lovingly nicknamed the Frenchie. Kind, good-spirited and intelligent, the French Bulldog is a very popular breed.
A breed that gets along well with children and animals, the French Bulldog not only makes an excellent companion but a great family dog too. Well-suited for apartment life, this breed will need regular exercise. Playful, he can romp in the yard for hours on end. In need of guidance with a strong leader, the French Bulldog requires a lot of human interaction, socialization and affection to avoid any aggressive behavior. A clean dog, he has an average shedding rate and requires low-maintenance grooming. Easily overheated, it's best that the Frenchie lives in a cooler climate.
Waking up in the arms of his owner, the French Bulldog will snooze until his master rises. Once up and at 'em, he'll want to be let out first in the morning to work off some of his high energy. Trotting back inside, he'll be ready for lunch and a bit of cuddle time on the couch. After receiving some affection, he'll greet the other members of the family while romping around the house and backyard. Once the day has ended, the French Bulldog will crawl into bed with his loving master.
