Is a French bulldog right for me? There is no breed of dog that loves to be loved more than a frenchies does. French bullogs are a loving, loyal, funny, happy companion. They do not require a lot of exerise and will always be excited to see you. Frenchies are very bonding and attach very strongly to their family.
How are French bulldogs with other animals? French bulldogs get along with other dogs but best with their own breed. It is extremely important to socialize your new puppy with other dogs, cats, and a variety of animals. It is also important to introduce them to young children. French bulldogs love children and will be a "hit" when you take them to the park. While socializing your frenchie away from the home be prepared to recieve a lot of attention! Every one will want you to stop and let them pet your french bulldog. And, of course, your french bulldog will expect all this attention!! Frenchie love being the center of attention.
Why are french bulldogs so expensive? French bulldogs are costly for a number of reasons. Some being that they are delivered by C-
Are French bulldogs noisy? French bulldogs are not big on barking. They will, however, alert you when someone is at the door. The majority of french bulldogs do make adorable noises like snorting, snoring, or grunting. Sometimes they even howl to get attention. Frenchie noises are very amusing!
Do french bulldogs Drool, Snore and Fart? No, they do not drool. Englis bulldogs drool. Many of the frenchies snore. Some fart, but that has a lot to do with the diet you put them on. Snoring, to a certain extent, is common in french bulldogs. They have a short nose and short nosed dogs tend to snore more than the long nosed dogs of other breeds.
Can frenchies swim? NO!! Big NO!! For the most part they can not. Frenchies are very heavy in the chest area which causes their front end to sink. Please, if you have a pool, have a fence around it. You can allow your french bulldog in the water but only with a life jacket on them.
Do you ship your french bulldog puppies? We do not ship cargo on the airlines. The only way a puppy is shipped is with a companion. The best way is for you to book a round trip flight, arriving and departing on the same day. We will meet you at the airport with your puppy and you can fly home with your new little treasure! The other way of shipping, your french bulldog puppy would be accompanied by a "puppy nanny." This is a certified puppy nanny that flies with your frenchie and you would meet them at the airport and pick up your little treasure. Of course, you are welcome to drive to pick up your baby also. We very much enjoy meeting our new frenchie puppy families.
What about vaccinations? All puppies will be current on vaccinations and your veterinarian will set up a protocal for you for additional vaccinations.

** NOTE: We cannot stress enough that this breed is VERY heat and cold sensitive. Temperatures too hot/humid, or too cold are FATAL to the French Bulldog.

Once a breeder has created acceptable “breed characteristics” within their bloodline and these “breed characteristics” have shown to be reliably reproduced in the offspring for three (3) generations, the bloodline may be upgraded from the category of “foundation stock” to “pure-
