Grooming: French Bulldogs are average shedders and require weekly brushing. Standard care is required for eyes, ears, pads, and nails.

Exercise Needs: This breed does well in apartments, but needs a daily regimen of exercise to prevent obesity. The French Bulldog cannot tolerate high heat and prefers cooler weather due to its susceptibility to heat stroke. This breed does not swim well and should be monitored carefully around backyard pools and open water.

Temperament: French Bulldogs crave companionship and do not prefer to be left on their own. They are loving and entertaining and make good guard dogs. These dogs become deeply attached to their owners. At times they can be stubborn, jealous, and protective. French Bulldogs will hunt mice, and make excellent companions for the elderly and children. They get along well with other family pets if introduced properly. Like other bulldogs, French Bulldogs have the tendency to drool and can be heavy breathers.

Brooklynn is a 17 month old French Bulldog. She loves chewing on different size boxes. We hide treats in some of them, and scatter them around the house. She gets rewarded when she finds the box with the treat.

Syrup is my 12 year old French Bulldog. Syrup enjoys long and relaxing sleeps :-) He is the most laid back dog I have ever known.

He also is a "star". He goes walking along the beach each day literally expecting everyone's attention! There is never a person that walks by without patting him. He is most popular with the ladies, truly.

If he is not patted, he sits and looks back at the person responsible with a look of disgust! He really does believe he is the most handsome dog on the beach.
