The French Bulldog is a great companion dog. Although she is playful and easy to take care of, she requires a lot of attention from humans. She loves children and is good with other pets. Reminder: Never leave your child alone with a dog or puppy.
An adult French Bulldog (two years or older) is approximately 12 inches tall at the withers (highest point on the shoulder). There are two weight categories: 19 to 22 pounds and 22 to 28lbs.
Special Health Considerations
Many dog breeds inherit certain health issues, and the French Bulldog is no different. You should be aware of breathing problems, skin conditions, heat stroke, eye injuries, and proneness to skin irritations. This is a guideline. You may also be at risk from other diseases. Please consult your veterinarian to get a complete list.
She should see the vet several times in her first year for boosters, shots, and a check-up. She should see the vet yearly for shots, boosters, and check-ups as an adult. She should see the vet twice per year as she gets older (6 years). Remember; to avoid feeding your dog sweets.
The French Bulldog’s coat is short, smooth, shiny, and fine. She sheds an average amount, so she should be brushed frequently. Brushing will keep her clean and healthy, prevent mats and allow you to keep an eye on her health. It will also strengthen your emotional connection with her.
Brush her teeth at least twice weekly using toothpaste and a toothbrush made for dogs. Brushing helps remove plaque and tartar that can lead to cavities and even periodontal disease. Periodontal disease in dogs can cause pain, loss of teeth, and other serious conditions.
Her toenails may need to be checked for growth and should be clipped frequently. The rear toenails grow faster than those of the front feet. A guillotine-type trimmer works best for this task. You can find competent instructions on how to do this on the internet.
With proper nutrition, medical care, and good living conditions, the French Bulldog can live for between 10-14 years.
The French Bulldog was developed from small bulldogs in France and Spain. The American Kennel Association first registered them in 1898.
