French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is a small molosser.

It is sometimes perceived as fierce while hiding an extreme affection for its owner and a cheerful, playful character, with a very pleasant temperament for older children and children.

This canine wants to be very soft, even if it does not seem so at first.

It is very recommended for the elderly, because it does not need exercise to be filled.

Thus, it is also suitable for indoor living, as it does not require large spaces to let off steam. His daily outings are more than enough for him.


The history of the French Bulldog dates back to the 19th century. Nevertheless, it is interesting to go back to the 3rd century BC to better understand it.

Nicknamed The Molosser, Alexander 1st of Epirus would have offered Alexander the Great a dog that would be the ancestor of the English Bulldog and a ratter. Appeared in the 1980s in Paris, and more mainly at the Abattoirs de la Villette, the French Bulldog quickly became the face of great Parisian celebrities.

The latter, from which all forms of aggression have been removed over the years, appeared after 1835 and the ban on dog fighting across the Channel.

The French Bulldog is born from a cross between the Toy Bulldog and the Doguin. It was in 1880 that its current name appeared.

It first appeared near the Abattoirs de la Villette.

Behavior with others

The French Bulldog is a companion dog with a very cheerful temperament.

Sweet and playful, he is considered an ideal playmate for children.

It represents a kind ally for the elderly. As he gets older, he may as well be the public entertainer or remain relatively peaceful.

He always remains dependent on his master with whom he needs to stay.

He is an excellent companion dog for young and old.


Various exercises, carried out with this dog from an early age, make it pleasant and sociable.

You must also teach him cleanliness, obedience and desensitize him to loneliness.

In this case, this dog, always looking for things to learn, can be jealous and possessive, which is why it must be educated very early so that it does not develop this character trait.


The French Bulldog, with its very short muzzle, can suffer from a breathing problem, especially in case of high heat. It is therefore necessary to avoid leaving it too long exposed to the sun.

He has a high sensitivity to respiratory and back pathologies.

Indeed, its rather short muzzle favors brachycephalic, caused by an elongation of the soft palate and pinched nostrils. Therefore, it is not uncommon to hear the French Bulldog snore when he sleeps.

In addition, his eyes are relatively fragile and require regular maintenance using a suitable lotion.

Finally, as this dog is prone to herniated discs, it is essential to take care of its diet to avoid any risk of obesity.
