History of the French Bulldog breed

When it comes to the origins of the French Bulldog, the world's cynologists have never found a common language. Some believe that modern French Bulldogs are descendants of the English Miniature Toy Terrier, which arrived on the European continent in the 17th and 18th centuries. Others say that French Bulldogs are descended from Spanish Bulldogs (Alans). Unfortunately, no reliable sources have been found to confirm or deny either version.

Of all the bulldog species, a breeding group with distinctive identifiable features has developed

at the end of the 19th century. The small, strong puppies with a flat muzzle were very popular with the bohemians. In 1903, the French Bulldog was first officially introduced as a separate breed.

Character of the French Bulldog

French Bulldogs are very loving dogs. They are playful and demand attention from everyone who comes into contact with them. The breed has a hard time with loneliness and requires constant interaction.

French Bulldogs are suitable for family homes, but they do even better with adult humans. Very young children do not always accept their great enthusiasm, and bulldogs do not always regard them with great patience and understanding.

Despite the fact that French Bulldogs like to be the only pet in the house, they tend to make friends with other pets in the house, especially if they grow up with them from a young age.

French Bulldogs are always protective of their home and will be sure to let their owner know if someone is standing outside the door.

Owners of these bulldogs find it easy to find a common language with their pet and develop a very close relationship. They are loyal companions who love to spend as much time as possible with their owners.

They are small in stature, very sociable and do not require a lot of exercise, which makes them ideal for older people and owners of small properties.

The French Bulldog is a loyal friend, an affectionate pet and a playful companion.

French Bulldog care

French Bulldogs require minimal coat care. Once a week, the dog should be brushed to remove dead hair. A French Bulldog should be bathed no more than once a month. Too frequent bathing can cause excessive drying of the skin, itching or dandruff.

Paw care: nail clipping and checking the paw pads for cracks.

Wrinkles on the bulldog's muzzle should be taken care of regularly. Moisture and dirt accumulate there and can cause infection. Gently clean the wrinkles with a cotton swab.

The dog's ears should also be cleaned regularly. Always monitor the condition of the bulldog's ears. They should always be clean and if you notice occasional suspicious discharge, redness, swelling or bad smell, it is best to seek veterinary advice.

Clean your French Bulldog's eyes regularly and monitor their condition.

This breed does not require long walks, but does require a fair amount of attention.

French Bulldogs love to eat, so you should monitor the dog's diet and prevent it from becoming obese.
