French Bulldog
His unique appearance and mischievous nature make the Frenchie a well-loved breed.
Height: 11 to 12 inches at shoulder
Weight: 16 to 28 pounds
Coat: short and smooth
Life span: 11 to 14 years
Breed Group: Companion Dogs
The French Bulldog has enjoyed a long history as a companion dog. Created in England to be a miniature Bulldog, he accompanied English lacemakers to France, where he acquired his Frenchie moniker. Besides being a companion, he once served as an excellent ratter, but today his job focuses on being a fabulous family friend and show dog. He's a rare breed, so expect to put in some time on a waiting list before you're able to bring one home.
