The French Bulldog has enjoyed a long history as a companion dog. Created in England to be a miniature Bulldog, they accompanied English lacemakers to France, where they acquired their “Frenchie” moniker.
Besides being companions, they once served as excellent ratters, but today their job focuses on being fabulous family friends and show dogs. They’re a somewhat rare dog breed, but you may find them in shelters and rescues. Opt to adopt if you can!
