The French Bulldog also affectionately known as, the Frenchie, Frenchie puppies, appeared during the 19th Century in Nottingham, England as a smaller version of the English Bulldog and is often referred to as the Toy English Bulldog. The purpose was to make a smaller, miniature, lap dog with similar characteristics to that of its ancestor.
Appearance and Grooming
With its dark eyes that are set wide apart, broad and deep muzzle, large bat ears, black or lighter nose and thick upper lips that hang down over the lower lips, this dog is supported by its strong and heavy bones. It has medium fine coat which is short and smooth. Its skin is loose and forms wrinkles around the head and shoulders. Its coat is brindle, brindle and white, cream or cream and white, fawn or fawn and white, fawn brindle, white, white and brindle, white and fawn, black, black and fawn, black and white, fawn and black, fawn brindle and white or gray and white. It also can have black, brindle or white markings or spots of colors. It needs little grooming and regular brushing as it is an average shedder. Your new puppy will also need regular nail clippings, ear cleanings and, more often, a face cleaning.
This funny little puppy is known for being a class clown of sorts. They enjoy playing and entertaining their family, as well as cuddling and snoozing with their favorite person. They are sociable, sweet, and fun loving with a bit of a stubborn streak.
Family and Companionship
Bred for centuries as a companion, they are particular fond of people, and become extremely attached to their families. Though they make for the perfect companion, they are not the best choice for someone who works long hours or spends a lot of time away from home.
This sturdy and spirited breed needs daily walks and plenty of active play to burn off energy, but do keep it away from the water as these dogs aren’t known to swim well if a tall. They are sensitive to hot and cold weather and so they will need proper protection from the elements when playing outdoors.
Training and Socialization
These dogs are very smart, and training them is easy as long as you make it seem like a game and keep it fun. Their playful and sometimes stubborn nature is not ideal for training them for agility or obedience competitions, as they are free thinkers and spirits. Its temperament requires a calm, but firm, patient and consistent trainer who can manage a proper communication with it. Training session should be short and full of praise and rewards.

Our pup loves his new home. He's already visited his vet here in Virginia and on his file the vet put, "This dog is AWESOME!" He loves running around the house and keeping mom and dad on their toes. Thanks to Matt and everyone for letting us pick him up early on Tuesday (5/9/17) where we had a long drive home. Everywhere we go people fall in love with him, how could you not?
I spent a lot of time researching sites and getting discouraged reading about the scams out there when trying to purchase a puppy online. I came across Premier Pups site and read everything I could and all of the positive reviews. When I saw the picture of my French Bulldog Bijou, I knew he was the one. I contemplated the purchase all day before pressing the purchase button. Although there was a little obstacle in getting him, Bijou was mine by the end of the week. A special thanks to Mike for making that happen and for the genuine care he had in making sure my puppy was doing well before and after I received him. My family and I are very happy with our new addition and that Premier Pups made that happen.
We have been so excited to get a Frenchie and our dream came true. Premier pups was more than helpful as we went through the process of purchasing our baby and having him flown. When he came home he had gotten sick and a lady from premier pups gave me her cell number and texted me all day helping me to make sure he was eating and what to do. Now he is more energetic, spoiled and our family just can't get enough of him.
My husband has been crazy for a frenchy for as long as I can remember. We have been looking until I came across you guys! I was so scared about everything with scams and all that I think I text they guys at the store like 10 times and Ryan was always super friendly and polite and happy to answer all of my questions. He even send me a video of my baby boy! I have tell everyone about them and their service. Thank you guys for my baby Maui!
Minnie just enjoyed her first birthday and has been in our family for ten months. She is the sweetest dog. Minnie loves people and loves to socialize. Premier pups was great from the moment we contacted them about her purchase. All the advice and care instructions we received were extremely helpful in raising a healthy pup. I would not hesitate to buy another fur baby from Premier Pups.
Billy Blue, originally just Blue, is doing fantastic in our home with our 9 month old female Vizsla, Rosie! He’s healthy, eating well, playful and sleeping like a baby in bed with my daughter! He’s adjusted well and the Vet says he’s in perfect health:)
