The French Bulldog breed originated in England but developed in France.
French Bulldogs are on the small side. They have compact, big-boned, muscular frames with smooth coats and “bat-like” ears. Their square heads have rounded skulls, broad muzzles and black noses. Their eyes are small, dark and set low on the face—just above the muzzle. Frenchies have strong necks, full chests and short, stocky legs. Their tails are short and thick, and their soft coats come in solids or combinations of brindle, fawn and white. Overall, French Bulldogs look alert, friendly and sturdy.
A healthy French Bulldog can live as long as 12 years.
