History

The Bulldog was very popular in England during the 1800s. While the larger varieties were best for fighting, many people preferred the smaller ones, which became much-loved house pets. The Nottingham region of England, known for its lace-making, was particularly enamoured of these smaller Bulldogs. When the Industrial Revolution and economic downturn of the 1860s forced lacemakers to move to France in pursuit of work, they took their dogs with them. These animals were then crossed with local dogs, producing the breed now known as the French Bulldog. The French Bulldog became popular in North America in the 19th century. At that time, both the English-style “rose” (folded) ears and the newer “bat” (erect) ears were considered acceptable. American breeders greatly preferred the bat ears. Eventually they won out. Bat ears are now the accepted breed standard.

Personality

Cheerful and full of playful joie de vivre, the French Bulldog or Frenchie is a wonderful family pet. He gets along with everyone, including other pets. His shortened muzzle tends to make him snore and drool, and he shouldn’t be exercised heavily in hot weather. With his happy disposition and good-hearted nature, he enjoys positive training and is generally an obedient soul.
