The Compact French Bulldog
The French bulldog is a rather muscular and compact breed of dog and although the name may suggest otherwise, the French bulldog originates from England. With a cute and pug-like appearance that boasts a solid bone structure and a flat muzzle, the French bulldog was originally bred as the Artisans of England did not like the large size of the original Bulldog breed. After the breed was originated, it became increasingly popular within France, who then bred the smaller bulldog with French terriers, which led to their new name, the French bulldog.
The French bulldog’s heritage is easy to identify based on its many physical attributes. It possesses a smooth coat and un-cropped tail which is straight by nature. The head is square shaped and large, with wide set eyes that are dark in color and provide the French bulldog with it’s somewhat ‘cute’ appearance. This type of bulldog’s ears, are often referred to as ‘bat ears’ as they are rounded on the upper section and are broad at the base. With these facial characteristics combined, the French bulldog usually displays a facial expression that depicts intelligence, alertness and an increasingly level of curiosity. The typical height of a French bulldog is measured at 12 inches from the shoulder and they can weight anything from 19-28 pounds. In regards to their coat, the French bulldog’s coat can come in a range of colors and patterns. In most cases, the coat will be a fawn color which will range from pale to a darker brown shade and often, he will sport markings or patterns on his coat.
The French bulldog’s heritage stems from a group of dogs who were known as mastiffs, who were widely used as guard or watch dogs. However, do not allow this to make you think that the French bulldog is stern mannered. French bulldogs are renowned for possessing comical traits within their personality and are incredibly playful, affectionate and alert dogs. Due to their playful and comical nature, they enjoy nothing more than playing for hours upon and end and can often keep themselves entertained without the intervention of any others. However, like many other breeds of dogs, the French bulldog requires attention and affection and have a tendency to form a strong bond with one particular member of a family, although will show love to all members of the family. They also interact well with children, if they have been raised together, which makes them an ideal family pet also.
