French Bulldogs

We are glad to offer you puppies of the French bulldog. They are cute and rather small dogs that are extremely sweet, funny and make brilliant companions. You can find us at USA, Richmond, VA. We can also offer you domestic shipping.

Exterior  

The French bulldog looks as a very lively, quite muscular, but compact dog with heavy bone, shiny smooth hair and of moderate or small exterior. Their ears are usually bat-like and their noses are similar to the pugs’ ones. They have strong flat heads, but they are smaller than those of English bulldogs, and rather rounded foreheads. Their pretty soft skin is so attractive that petting a French bulldog gets an offer you cannot refuse. It has a quite heavy lower jaw, big rounded eyes and a straight or cork-screw tail. Though they are rather square-built, they are a bit wider at the shoulders than at the back end.

History

The predecessor of the French bulldog was developed in England as a small copy of the English bulldog. In the 1960s dog breeders bred that little English bulldog with the popular at that time French Terrier, after that the breed we know as the French Bulldog appeared. A lot of people adored those small dogs, so the breed gained popularity and pretty soon it became a rather successful small breed. Nowadays French bulldogs are even more popular than ever.

Common colors 

Under the highest standard of this breed the admissible colors include different tones of brindle, pale fawn, brown or white with brindle spots (called “pied”). Among the most frequent colors is brindle, next comes fawn and pied is less frequent comparing to these two colors.

Sizes of the dogs

French Bulldogs are little – they are about 12 inches to the shoulders. They usually weigh within 25-28 pounds. As a rule any French bulldog weighing over 28 pounds will be disqualified according to AKC standards for the show ring, but other norms are not so rigid on the weight prerequisites. However, companion small dogs shouldn’t better weigh too much, for instance more than 28 pounds, because a fit dog is a healthy dog.

Puppy care

Your new puppy will surely require a nice safe, pretty warm and dry place for sleeping and rest. It is usually advisable to let babies sleep with a cloth or a stuffed toy that has some mother’s scent on it. This helps to calm the puppy and lets it sleep better. A good tip is also to put a sheet over the box when it is asleep at night so you help it get accustomed with falling asleep at a certain scheduled time.

Puppies are quite curious by nature and tend to explore everything around. Be sure that dangerous things like tiny marbles, different wires, hazardous chemicals and household cleansers as well as harmful plants of any type are far out of the places where your puppy can reach them.

Training your puppy should be like teaching a child. Anyway, if you tell it NO, you’d better show it the right behavior. For instance, if it is chewing up a piece of paper, you’d better remove this, replace the object with some of its toys and praise the pup for chewing the proper item. Scolding should be short but sharp either. Physical punishment can cause more troubles by the way. The puppy can get shy, fearful or aggressive. It is the better way of training to reward for behaving well. It can be a light scratch on the neck between the shoulders and the ears.

It is recommended to feed your puppy with special food for puppies. Be careful with food containing a lot of protein or some vitamins because they can be harmful to the baby dog. Feed your pup two or three times during the day. As a rule, in twenty minutes your puppy will have eaten to be fed and its bowl can be removed. After the age of twelve weeks your puppy should be fed once in the morning and then once in the evening.
