French Bulldog

INTRODUCTION

The French Bulldog has enjoyed a long history as a companion dog. Created in England to be a miniature Bulldog, they accompanied English lace makers to France, where they acquired their nickname of “Frenchie” Although they are a pure breed of dog, you can find them in shelters and rescues. In addition to being companions, they once served as excellent mousers, but today their work is focused on being fabulous family friends and show dogs. It is important to remember that dogs of any breed can suffer from health problems throughout their lives. A good pet insurance plan can help you prepare to give your dog the care it needs at any age.

HISTORY

The French Bulldog originated in England and was created to be a toy sized version of the Bulldog. The breed was quite popular with the lace workers in the city of Nottingham and when many lace workers emigrated to France in search of better opportunities, they naturally brought their little bulldogs with them. The French Bulldog thrived in France and Europe, and its charm was soon discovered by Americans as well. The United States saw its first French Bulldog at the Westminster Kennel Club show in 1896. The breed was quickly given the nickname “Frenchie”, and is still an affectionate name used today.
