Country of Origin:
The French Bulldog was developed as a companion dog from the miniature bulldogs English lace workers brought to France with them when they emigrated in search of better jobs. The English dogs mated with local breeds and soon became popular in fashionable circles.
The French Bulldog is a muscular, compact and heavily boned dog. Its head is large and square with an upturned nose and short, heavily wrinkled muzzle. The large, naturally erect, rounded ears are often described as batlike. The skin is soft and forms wrinkles at the head, neck and shoulders. The tail is naturally short and can be straight or screw. The short, fine coat may be brindle, fawn, white or brindle and white.
