About the French Bulldog
The French Bulldog, (or Frenchie as he is known by those close to him), is a handsome little dog, short and stocky with a short coat in colours of Fawn, Pied or Brindle. The males tend to be larger due to being more masculine weighing in at an average12.5kg whereas the females average weight is 11.0kg. The Frenchie has an engaging personality. He possesses an expressive, wrinkled face and his bat ears are what draw most admirers. He is extrememly intelligent and very affectionate, making him an ideal house pet. The Frenchie is a flat faced breed and great care must be given during summer months as they do not have the ability to cool down as quickly as a breed with a longer nose. They do not need vast amounts of space, nor do they require a lot of exercise. However, the French Bulldog requires a great deal of close contact with it's owners, and is very keen to make the most of any lounge available, this is not a breed to be relegated to the backyard.
