FRENCH BULLDOG OVERVIEW
French Bulldogs are a cute breed of small, domestic dogs that are related to other bulldog breeds such as the American Bulldog and the English Bulldog. Being of a small size, they make for quite an adorable canine companion, as the scrunchy face of a French Bulldog elicits affection rather than threat that is often felt from its bulldog brothers. It is also quite fun to have a French Bulldog as an addition to one’s family, as they easily develop a bond that keeps them attached to their human companions. They are sweet and affectionate, and would rarely bark out loud as compared to other dog breeds.
The French name of this canine goes as Bouledogue Franais, but the dog is more known to have originated from Britain, which is when breeding of toy or miniature dogs had been prevalent during the industrial revolution. In the 1900s, most of the English who had left for France actually took their French Bulldogs with them, which happened to appeal to the Parisian taste. Thus came the popularization of French Bulldogs, which also reached other shores such as America and Australia.
French Bulldog At A Glance
People often believe that maintenance of French Bulldogs would be quite easy given their small size. While such a factor would be quite true in reference to keeping them up and about in the home, there are certain factors about their physique that should drive owners to exercise precaution when taking care of them. One such thing to look out for would be to ensure that their pet does not get exposed much to certain locations where the dog’s breathing might be compromised. You might look at these cute little dogs and see a scrunched up face, whose snout does not protrude unlike that of other dogs, but this is something that can actually be dangerous to French Bulldogs. This physical characteristic gives them a compacted airway, which often allows for an attribute that makes them unable to effectively regulate temperature.
