Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I wanted to write a post on “The Facts About Frenchies.” Being a proud pet mom of this precious little breed is totally awesome!
If you are looking to get a puppy and not sure what breed to choose, let me ease your mind about these wonderful little bulldogs. First off they are absolutely wonderful with children and people in general.
They are known for their “bat ears” that stand straight up with a square face that has lots of cute little wrinkles. So adorable! How could you resist this little face? I mean really how could you?
They are short, stocky and muscular with beautiful shiny slick coats.
But first of all, I would like to give you some background information on these precious pups. Get ready to be intrigued;)
Where Did These Cuties Come From?
These cute little guys originated in France and England in the 1800s. This breed came about when the local English bred the English Bulldog with the ratters of Paris, France.
What are ratters you may ask? They are a small breed of dog that is trained to catch rats and other small rodents. There are approximately 10 breeds of dogs that can do this. One example would be the Jack Russel Terrier.
The Frenchies scientific name is “Canis lupus familiaris.” (Thank goodness someone decided to call them French Bulldogs!) 😉
Ready to Learn The Facts About Frenchies?
Well, the very first thing I want to tell you is Frenchies are very loyal to their pet parents and human brothers and sisters. Their love is unconditional. It doesn’t matter if you have been gone 5 minutes or all day, their greeting is always the same. They can’t wait for you to get into the house.
They will meet you at the door with that little nub and their backside just a twisting Lol! Then you will be bomb barded with lots of attention and kisses.
You won’t find a more affectionate dog than a Frenchie, I promise you! We have 5 grandchildren that range in ages from 4 weeks to 8 years old. My little guy who is 9 years old and acts like he’s 1 year old when the grandchildren come around.
He is wide open and he loves those babies so much and he’s very patient with them. Our grandson who is almost 2, sometimes pinches our Frenchie and all he does is lick our grandson’s hand really fast as if to say “No, please don’t do that.” (Of course, we correct our grandson) Chance (our furbaby) has never tried to bite him or any of our grandchildren.
Frenchies are very sociable creatures. Whenever we have company Chance is the first one at the door to welcome them and in his mind, they have come to pay him a visit, not us. Lol!
They are also very smart animals. My Chance knows my daughter’s by there names and my sisters, son in laws, brother in laws, and the grandchildren. Not just family, but friends by their names as well.
I swear sometimes I think he has learned to spell as well when it comes to his snack time! Lol
Did I mention they are also very energetic? Let me just tell you, when it comes to playing these little guys can play for quite a while. So, if you have children or grandchildren, a Frenchie would make a wonderful addition to your family. These pooches absolutely love children.
Frenchies are also very playful. Mine loves to play ball, fetch, chase, you name it. They are also very athletic, alert and they love to talk! Boy, do they love to talk!
These little guys are also very silly. If they are doing something funny and you start laughing, honey they will really show out!
What Is The French Bulldogs Life Expectancy?
If these Bulldogs are well taken care of, they can live 10-14 years. Perhaps a little longer with the right nutrition, exercise and NOT letting them become obese!
This is becoming an epidemic for our pets. Pet parents don’t understand the health dangers that come from letting our furbabies become obese.
Just like humans, they can develop osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease, cancer, and so many more bad health issues!
So, if you want your furbaby to live a long and healthy life, DON’T feed them everything that YOU eat!! For more information on healthy puppy foods to start your little one off on the right paw <<Go Here>>
As you can see in this picture to me this baby is too chunky! (Although so adorable)
Frenchies love to eat so you have to know when to stop feeding them.
What Fabulous Colors Do They Come In?
Frenchies come in 6 beautiful colors:
Here Are A Few More Facts About Frenchies
The Facts About Frenchies, they are not Hypoallergenic! So, what does this mean to you as a pet parent? You should probably consider talking with your doctor before getting your pup.
These little guys have short hair which makes them susceptible to getting dandruff easily, but they are low shedders which is a plus. Their skin is loose with a cute little smashed in face that you will love.
These beautiful bulldogs make perfect companions. They stand 12-14 inches tall and weigh 25-28 pounds. They are very well behaved and easy to handle and absolutely love people and other animals.
Frenchies are silly and love getting lots and lots of attention. They are wonderful with children of all ages and love to play fetch.
These bulldogs may be small, but honey let me tell you they have jaws of steel!! It’s hard sometimes to find durable toys that can withstand those powerful jaws! But I have found a chew toy that has really good reviews. So, <<Go Here>> to see this toy and check out the reviews.
I can tell you from my own experience that Frenchies are wonderful little dogs to have, but I have a few more things I would like to mention about this gentle breed of dog. They can’t handle hot weather very well. If they become too overheated they can have a heat stroke, so please make sure you keep your furbaby well hydrated.
In the winter my little guy likes to wear his sweaters when it’s cold outside because he doesn’t handle or like cold weather. For information on doggie sweaters <<Go Here>>
Oh, and one more thing, they are not good swimmers, so don’t throw them in a swimming pool they would sink like a rock!!
