Is that a pig I see? A frog? A Bat? A Pug with his ears lopped off?
Nope, it’s a French Bulldog, which is often referred to as a Frenchie, a Frogdog, Bat Ears, or even a “throw pillow that snores.”
My in-depth guide on French Bulldogs, which I’ve titled the French Bulldog Puppies FAQ (“FAQ” stands for “Frequently Asked Questions” in case you were wondering), can be found below.
Do French bulldogs make excellent pets and companions?
The French bulldog is a fantastic companion, the Frenchie needs very little activity and is extremely simple to maintain.

The Frenchie may make an excellent guard dog owing to its protective and territorial tendencies.
Are French Bulldogs good with children?
All dogs should be monitored carefully while around children yet the Frenchie is typically nice with children.

The French bulldog does want to please its owner yet they may be obstinate and hard-minded, if you convert the training into a game then they are more willing to learn quickly.
Does the French bulldog growl a lot?
The French bulldog is really a peaceful dog who normally isn’t recognized as a barker.
I live in an apartment; would it be spacious enough for a French bulldog?
French bulldogs are an ideal breed for an apartment since they don’t take up too much space and don’t demand a lot of activity; of course, you should always give your dog a walk every day and let it enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise.
I heard French bulldogs suffer from respiratory problems?
Sometimes a French bulldog will have labored or loud breathing, its smaller nasal apertures may sometimes enhance their already noisy qualities.
Do French bulldogs lose a lot of hair?
The French bulldog has shorter hair and is single coated which means they shed less than many other breeds * Are French bulldogs simple to breed? Assistance may be required from a vet since the French bulldog may occasionally be difficult to breed naturally; it is one breed that is tougher to breed than many others.
Are there any special issues during birth?
Due to the form and size of the French bulldog puppy’s head, most pups are in fact delivered via caesarean section with the aid of a vet, they are not one of the simplest breeds to breed and frequently require help while giving birth. You should consider very carefully before trying to produce and deliver pups yourself.
Is the French bulldog simple to housetrain?
As is the case with many breeds of dogs some are simpler to housetrain than others, attempt to encourage them to use a specific location inside the home after they eat, before they sleep and the first thing on awakening.
I heard the French bulldog snore?
Due to difficulties with the breed’s respiratory limitations, most French bulldogs will snore when they lie down, however, assuming otherwise your puppy or dog is healthy then this is only a normal feature of the French bulldog.
The French Bulldog is without a doubt among the friendliest and most entertaining breeds of dog that one may possibly have the good fortune to come across. These little dogs have been bred since the 1800s for the express goal of being a friend to a man, and they are very skilled at doing the duty for which they were developed. There aren’t many breeds of dogs that are equally at home in the city, the country, or the suburbs. They take pleasure in the amenities that a city lifestyle has to offer, but they are compact enough to be readily carried through shops or stowed away in taxis. On the other hand, many Frenchie owners will tell you that their sweet pet’s naturally somber temperament and robust small physique causes some people to think twice before approaching them, which is not always a bad thing in these modern times.
The French Bulldog is classified as a member of the Non-Sporting category for dogs of medium size by both the American Kennel Club and the Canadian Kennel Club (the breed standards for the French Bulldog in both nations are identical, with only minor language differences). They belong to the same group as the Boston Terrier and the Bulldog (sometimes known as the “English” or “British” Bulldog), which are the two breeds with which they are most often mistaken. Although there are some similarities between French bulldogs and the other two breeds, Frenchies also have a lot of unique characteristics that set them apart. They are more musculus and “bully” than the Boston Terrier, but they are smaller than the Bulldog, and their activity level is in the middle of that of the Bulldog and the Boston. The distinctive “bat” ears of the French Bulldog come naturally and are never clipped nor manipulated in any way. These ears are the breed’s defining characteristic.
😍 These gadgets are on my Frenchie’s wishlist, maybe your Frenchie needs them too? 🥰
✅ We laughed so hard we had tears rolling down our cheeks. Watch funny clips HERE
✅ My Frenchie has been self-conscious about his hair for years. He finally has the confidence to go on walks now. Other dogs don’t even know it’s a wig! What a steal!! LOL
✅ These matching sweaters are absolutely adorable. Fits my 22lb French bulldog like a glove, his shirt is super soft.
✅ Lots of folks said it was the cutest thing they had seen in a long time! It came with adjustable straps just in case the Frenchie gains weight (again.)
✅ Safety first, right? My Frenchie loves bike rides in the backpack but not so much in the rain, this Goggle/Hemlet set really helps keep the rain out of the eyes and ears.
✅ Omg too cute😍 I do not need to explain why your Frenchie needs it right?
✅ The hoodie is really well made and super soft fleece-lined! My Frenchie has been in it for hours, which is not common… safe to say it is puppy approved!
✅ You only need this one high-quality water-resistant jacket for Winter. Necessary piece. Make sure you check out the reviews to get the right size instead of keeping returning.
✅ There are built-in ear holes for comfort, which is how my Frenchie usually wears it, but sometimes we just have to keep those ears covered up and keep the heat in on the super-cold days.
✅ This playpen is a life saver! They can be linked together if desired to create a larger pen.
✅ No animal should have to sleep on the floor and hurt or be cold. I asked my Frenchie for a review – unfortunately he’s too busy snoring, farting and sleeping on it to answer me…lol
✅ This is a fantastic car seat w lots of clever features. The entire seat can collapse to fit into its own carrying bag, though it’s easily put together again in 30 sec. The cover that the dogs rest on is silky soft faux fur which doesn’t seem to snag dirt and debris. It easily zips out for washing, and during the summer you can reverse the cover so the canvas side is up and not the fur. The pillow that boosts the dogs up in the seat has a soft foam side akin to memory foam. It’s very roomy and well made for a small Frenchie.
✅ The couch is stylish and lightweight but definitely sturdy. As an added bonus the legs have non-skid pads on the bottom so it won’t slide when he gets in and out of it. Holding up pretty good even when Frenchie digs in it…
✅ Let me do you a favor and let you know that you NEED this NOW!!! It was very comfortable for me at this height. No pain or awkward positions and I didn’t get soaked.
✅ I don’t remember seeing any other pet strollers using this kind of high-end wheels. Perfect for the small puppy that is old or can’t walk much.
