French Bulldog

 

Origin:

Lacemakers in 19th Century Nottingham, England selectively bred the early bulldog to obtain a downsized or “toy” bulldog for use as a lap pet. When the Industrial Revolution displaced some lacemakers to France, they took the dogs with them, and soon the “toy” bulldogs became popular in France, where wealthy Americans doing the Grand Tour saw and fell in love with them. In the late 1800s, these “toy bulldogs” became known as French Bulldogs.

History

Often described as “a clown in the cloak of a philosopher,” the French Bulldog originated, and continues to be used, as a companion dog. The breed is small and muscular with a heavy bone structure, smooth coat, short face and trademark “bat” ears. Prized for its affectionate nature and even disposition, the French Bulldog is generally active and alert, but not unduly boisterous.
